    Looking into buying my first set of commercial lawn equipment this year! I plan to get the 21" Toro Commercial Self-Propelled ( no yards I cut need more than this). As for the backpack blower,edger, and trimmer, I am not sure whether to go with the Echo or the Redmax. Please give me your opinions on both.

    IMO echo makes great equipment ,i have 2 echo 751 backpack blowers and man do they work great,i also have echo trimmers, edgers,and hedgetrimmers.i cant compare it to redmax because i have never used redmax but i have heard alot of good stuff about redmax so i woud say both are good and you should just go with the one that is close to you for service purposes.

    I used to be a echo loyalist, I have a backpack and trimmer that are 8 years old still running strong. But, I have bought some redmax equipment and I really have liked its power and quality build.

    All Echo products here and very happy with them!

    The big thing is good quality but it needs to be backed up by excellent dealer support. The Echo dealer support in my area is the best!

    The dealer I am looking at has both Echo and Redmax and does the work for both. I am leaning more towards the Redmax after reading up on them! what do you all think of the Toro 21" Commercial Self-Propelled with the Kawasaki Engine?

    Go with the stihl 4-mixes for trimmer, edger and redmax for the bp blower.
