    Hello to all. Just a regular homeowner looking to upgrade from my current Troy-Bilt split boom, trimmer/edger setup to something nicer & more durable. Anyone have any experience using the above mentioned Echo SB system? If so, what are your thoughts & impressions so far? Also, I'm all for supporting a local dealer with the purchase but honestly, I can save more than a few bucks & buy the items on-line. Other than "end of the longest line" type service from a dealer because I didn't buy it from him, any other pitfalls to not purchasing thru a dealer? I'm pretty sure Echo has a 5 yr residential warranty on this unit regardless of where I purchase it. Thanks in advance for any help.

    They are very good units. Plenty of power, sip gas and lots of attachments available.
    Attachments are good quality too and should last you forever.
    Buying from a dealer has its advantages, check if your dealer would give you a break on the price before buying online.
