    Husqvarna, no question. Best power to weight ratio out there, and good prices to boot.

    Sure they are cheap and powerful, but do they last when used commercially? No way!

    I love my 2012 stihl FS90R, but my two echos are 16-17 years old and still start every time and perform excellently.

    Redmax, I have dozens of customers using them commercially for over ten years and going strong. Also check out Dolmar 4 strokes.

    I run husquvarna and red max, love them both. I believe the newer redmax handheld products are the same as the huskies? That is what iI was told at least...

    Bought my first echo last year and have been really happy with it. But if money wasn't a question : shindaiwa

    Definately Stihl..but Shindaiwa is the best trimmer, if you have a dealer that carries that brand.
