    Have always used Echo. I have a tiny bit of experience with Stihl but since Echo has never let me down, I won't let them down. I have an Echo stick edger that I treat like s$%^ and it's 6 years old and still starts on 2 pulls, every time.

    I have a Stihl br420 magnum bp blower and it's the BEST. I also have a Echo pb2100 and it's o.k. but, not as much power as my stihl. I also have had pretty good luck with my chainsaws (CS4400 & CS3450)They are overall good machines but, I would suggest a Stihl over anything I have used.

    I use both. I prefer Echo, but both are great.

    Have both, love both. Same difference. 6 of one, half dozen of the other. Between a rock and a hard place.

    I have both, I have had good luck with both. I think I have a little of everything that both of them make.Echo has the best blower by far.
