    Hi all I have mainly used Stihl and Redmax Trimmers in the past and liked them especially the Stihl. But I have never priced or tried the Echo brand in your opinion are they good or not? any info helpful. :usflag::usflag::usflag:

    IMO there junk i would never put an echo on one of my crews other then the tiller the 2100. I have been running trimmers for along time and i can pretty much make any trimmer cry. The echos i have run just dont have it the 260s the 230 just dont cut it. Stihl and kaws would be the only thing ill endorse(that cant be spelld right)

    I found that Echo just doesn"t hold up as well as Stihl.
