    i have found them to be the longest running and easiest to start im sure the majority of people on this forum would agree, do a search on &quot;edg&quot; and you will find there has been alot of discussion on this topic or try &quot;shin&quot; <p>----------<br>CJC Landscape Management<br>Winter Haven, Florida<br>

    I haven't used them all, but out of the Echo's, Stihl, Maruyama's and Shindaiwa's I have owned, I like the Shindaiwa.
