I have had better luck with Redmax
I use Stihl's Kombi system and I will never use anything else. Its great being able to only have to purchase one motor but I can use any attachment. I tried an echo trimmer years ago but it seemed under powered and I personally didn't care for it.
Yeah was wondering if anyone used the Kombi system what head unit are you powering with?
Also see people saying you have to adjust valves and stuff on these sthil's was never a issue with Echo's but mine were older models and 2-stroke
the Echo 280 is a beast though
We have a 280 and the power is lacking compared to the fs100's by a long shot. With the high torque head installed it brings it closer.

I use the KM 90R motor which has plenty of power. Just used it yesterday to do some small brush cutting. I know you have to adjust the valves every couple years on the BR600's but I havent heard that about the trimmers.
Ok was just wondering on trimmers was not for sure still have not decided switching brands is difficult decisions coming of equipment you have used for years.
But I made a excellent one moving to Deere 920M love their mowers and service.
You can't beat Stihl's warranty either, if you buy a 6 pack of their synthetic 2 cycle mix, they will extend the warranty for an additional 2 years (4 total)
Might as well go Sthil and try them that is nice, never noticed that spent to much looking into all the equipment specs I guess.
I like my 90R, both stihl and echo are great brands but I think the EPA and all the emissions BS got the best of them. Takes a long time for the new ones to warm up, whereas a stihl takes about 15 seconds. If you're transitioning to Stihl everything they make it high quality and should last you a long time with the proper care and maintenance. Obviously no weedeater is gonna last you 10 years+ if you beat the crap out of it unnecessarily and don't maintain it. Good luck transitioning!
Many of the outdoor power tool company's are doing the same thing now.
