    I like echo, good prices, good reliability, and they are going some where. Their new trimmers are some of the best ive ever used.

    Cheers

    This has been debated forever here and elsewhere. I run Stihl because of the power difference but it also comes down to dealer support.

    I've always wanted to demo Echo's biggest, baddest, blower. Only problem is the dealer for them is my local equipment rental place, which charges me $25 if I decide not to buy, can you believe that Chit...?

    Anyways, bought the Stihl BR550 best blower for the buck around my dealer has my back no complaints..
