    I've learned with lawn equipment you get what you pay for...Stihl is worth the money.

    If I was choosing between those 3, it would be Redmax for me.

    I am going to go against the grain. I have been totally pleased with all kawasaki hand helds. KGT27A KBL26A timmers. In my opinion, Myself and my guys like the power to weight on these trimmers. Blowers, I still rely on redmax 7001 8000's. Good luck in your choice.
