    Toro mowers and mostly Stihl handhelds. If not Stihl as I replace them, I purchase Stihl.
  4. I run all stihl, except my back up blower.

    Toro (one with a Lawn boy engine) and Scag for my mowers, Echo and Stihl for my 2 cycles, except for the Kawi b/p blower which looks like it's gonna get traded off soon. When the Kawi goes I am getting traded 2 Echo b/p blowers so I'll be down to Toro and Scag and Stihl and Echo. You judge if I theme or not I guess....

    I don't care about themes or color schemes. I choose the best quality and performance, price is not much of a factor.

    I agree. These days it's all the rage to have something just for the way it looks or the color it is, instead of the way it's built. Just look at all the Toyota or Kia cars they're selling!!! Not saying they're totally junk but I will bet that the Ford, Chevy or Dodge vehicles in the same class are built alot heavier duty. It stands to reason that companies such as Ford, Chevy or Dodge that build 3/4 ton + trucks would build a heavier duty passenger car/mini van/suv also because they understand the importance of a heavy built vehicle- alot safer!!!!

    Nothing but Toro and Echo on my trailer. My trailer isn't pulled by any thing but General Motors. Is that clear enough.
