    I am about to by new equipment. I cant decide which brand to get. Redmax or Sthil. I am going to get 2 new trimmers, 1 blower, 1 edger, all new.Going to cost me over a thousand so I am hesitant on buying without knowing much about them. Please help. Any info would be great. Thanks. :usflag: :drinkup:

    Redmax BCZ2600s trimmers are good. As far as blowers go, Redmax EB7001 back pack blowers put out a lot of air.(though I like the older 6200's which they don't make anymore). I don't know about the edgers. just my $.02

    Both are quality equipment.We use Redmax blowers, and sthil trimmers, hedge trimmers and stick edgers.Which ever one has the best parts availability, and dealer support in your area would be the way to go IMO.

    If you have a good commercial dealer in your area check out the new Echo equipment.

    Excellent products at great prices! We have used all Echo for years and our dealer is one of the main reasons!

    Both Stihl and Redmax make excellent equipment. Go with the dealer that is nearest with the best service. :usflag:

    I believe the choices were Redmax, or Stihl. Echo was not mentioned. But it's nice that you are standing up for the brand. In fact "Excellent products at great prices!" sounds like it'd make a nice HD slogan.
