    Shindawia, because thats what Ive ever owned and there the best. If im not mistaken shin makes redmax also. So im sure redmax is just as good.

    I run them both. Actually, I think RedMax makes engines for Shindaiwa. Either way, they are very similar in design and performance. If one dealer is better than the other (unless they're at the same dealer), that's the one I'd run.:)

    Shindaiwa is one of the few brands that I have never tried. However, out of all the others, the Redmax is hands down the best!
