    all three of these brands are fine ,but go with a dealer who you feel like will stand behind his product and is close to your work . I prefer stihl there is a dealer just a few miles from me and i have had great luck with stihl.

    They are all good. I prefer Echo, though (I have used both Stihl and Echo) I think that all of the Echo's that I have used have had larger gas tanks than Stihl. Echo's string replacement system is also easier to use.

    They are all good ones that you mentioned.
    I prefer my Stihl Fs80R because it has more power than the Echo
