    I personally would recommend Kawasaki, Echo, Stihl (though I don't like the price), Shindaiwa, or Husqvarna (as long as it's the 300 series). I think any of those would be good choices, though the Stihl would be my last pick.

    Echo 260-T. Tons of power/torque. Perfect balance and light weight. I love it! Also, you can run a brushcutter head on it if you wanted to with no problem.
