    How many of you use only one brand for everything, like all Echo for 2 stroke and how many of you (who have more than one truck) have the same brand and color, same goes for the trailer. Or how many of you mix match equipment? just like to know?

    I think alot of it has to do with what dealer someone uses.

    I use echo trimmers and blowers, Stihl saws and Scag Mowers, and some old 4 stroke wb edgers....I have a good relationship with my dealer who sells these products.

    Plus its easier to maintain spare parts...

    Trucks are ALL GM, Trimmers/blowers : Redamax

    walkbehinds: SCAG ZTRs: Exmark WheelBlowers: Little wonder

    Hedgetrimmers: Echo

    I do have some other brands of equipment, but thats b/c every once in a while I find deals that cannot be passed up.
