    I have a been wondering what types of blowers + trimmers everyone out there uses. I have mostly echo. I have had good luck with reliability etc. with them for the most part (aside from them costing a small fortune) I am one who realizes that you get what you pay for. anyone out there had any luck with other makes?? Thinking about trying out a John Deere trimmer this spring. ---jake

    We use Shendowa (I think that is how you spell it) limateds, for our trimmers. We use redmax ( i don't know wich kinde just that they are the top of the line/most expnsev. So that is what we use they are both over $500(i think) so they are on the expensive side.

    Is used on as many of my posts as possible.

    I just thought with him inquiring the proper spelling might help.

    Cripes I took 5 minutes rummaging thru old brochures til I found something with the name. -- LOL
