    You'll probably get a few replies for every brand you mentioned, and i'll get it started by saying that in my experience the Shindaiwas are about as good as they come. By an LE260 if you really have a ton of edging to do. Plenty powerful, but just a tad heavy. For everyday sidewalk/driveway/curb edging an LE 230 will do.

    I own a stihl and Im well pleased with it. Stihl has the most dealers in my area and alot of people on here recommended them also. I cant comment on the other brands

    The Shindaiwa LE260 / LE261 is our favorite as well... the extra power is nice when the edging has been let go. It's worth the few extra bucks over the 230.

    Ditto in bold. If you go Stihl go with the FC110 you won't be sorry.

    The Echo PE-260 is a monster!

    Tons of power to go through almost anything we throw at it.
