    I will only use Stihl 4-mix products. Great machines plenty of power.

    I would go with a Stihl 4-mix. I have the bike bars and I really like them more than the loop handle.

    I just bought a Maruyama 3020 and it is awesome, lots of power and light weight. I was a little skeptical, but well worth my money.

    I can get you a Sweet deal on a new Dolmar MS 260 C.
    When I order mine the dealer got a second one and he's looking to move it, and he's located in Canton.
    He offered it to me at $300 O.T.D.
    I only wish I could afford it.
    I have been very happy with mine so far.
    And the price's will be going up next year.

    Replace them with the same as what you have 12 years is pretty good others wise kawas and shindys are pretty reliable, with a lot of people voteing for Red max.:)
