    I saw that too. How much do dealers ask for them? Just wondering if it is worth it to pay a couple extra bucks to support my dealer.

    Well I guess my dealer will have to go hungry. I though there would be a difference of like 10 or 15 dollars. I am hopefully going to order 2 sometime this week.

    That's a good deal. I couldn't find it on their site though. Do they charge shipping? The site I found has free shipping.

    Have you used this Echo 755 model and compared it with the Sthil BR 600? I was leaning in the direction of sthil however I like the Echo trimmer and small blower I have now. The issues I'm hearing about dropped valves with the older BR600 4 mixes and some other operation issues has me doubting the Sthil. I was also considering the Redmax 8001 but the local dealer doesn't stock it and plugs the Br600 instead?
