    I have been making the transition to Redmax handhelds from Stihl. Got a few new pieces today. Also got another Toro trim mower, just felt like sharing. I got the non-commercial handheld blowers because I've heard they're better than the commercial handheld Redmax sells. Anyone have experiene with this? And ya, my shop's a disaster because I'm in the process of moving it.

    Nice stuff! I've started to like the Redmax stuff myself. What does one of those hand held blowers cost?

    I'll have to check the invoice. I forgot it at my dealer.

    Why did you switch from stihl? Problems with them or is it a dealer issue?

    Dealer support is equal but I felt like the redmax trimmer I bought last year was more reliable and always started easier. In the dead of summer the stihl stuff really acted up, the warm weather didn't affect my redmax equipment. Not to mention they match my mowers.

    yeah i know what you mean. All my handhelds are stihl and they sometimes do that. I would like to try something different like redmax or echo but i only have a stihl dealer around here. anyway looks good!

    I also switched from Stihl to Redmax, the Redmax have been more reliable and require almost zero maintenance. Nice stuff.
