    Stihl. I am homeowner but am still using Stihl handheld blower, chain saw, and string trimmer that are 26-27 years old and still reliable. I keep up nearly two acres so the are used quite a bit.

    I've always gone with redmax, but now that husqvarna owns them i'm not sure. I've never been a big fan of husky hand helds, except chain saws

    I have been running Stihl for over 15 years and have been more than happy. Little to no problems and if you do need parts they are very easy to get.
