Ive had my Echo hc150's for nearly 5 years. They get abused every year, lots of use nearly year round. They still fire on the first or second pull. Very durable and cut well for the price.

Echo hand helds, are commercially proved equipment.I have no clue about Troy-built, no preconceived notions about the brand at all. I don't know if Troy-built is commercial grade, or even who manufactures it and puts the Troy-built logo on.

I've got the HC-150i. The pull start is on a ratchet, starts extremely easy.
