    I know everyone has their own brand of equipment that is their favorite. I'm looking at buying new equipment and was wondering what equipment everyone uses in order to see what brand is most reliable and used by the pros. THANKS! :)

    Go with Echo. Every piece of equipment that I own is Echo and it fires up day after day after day. They make really good equipment.

    I believe the commercial division of husqvarna is red max so i'd look into the red max stuff. I've never heard anything negitive bout it really. Then again, i've also never used it myself. :laugh:
