Weedeater?

I am in the market for a new weedeater. Should I buy an Echo or a Shindaiwa? Email me at jayrood1976@aol.com.

Never used shindaiwa. I've always had Echo trimmers and have had no reason to try anything else. They're lightwieght and reliable also very comfortable to use.

We use both Echo and Stihl. I'd recommend either.

I have to agree that Echo and Stihl are both great for commercial use, I have used both but prefer Echo...but I do not really have any complaints about the Stihl product, there just seem to be more Echo dealers where I am.....Eric
