    You're opening up a can of worms with this one. Do a search and you'll get more opinions than you'll ever need... and in the end you'll base your decision on your own needs and expectations.

    Look into the Honda line of trimmers and edgers with the true 4-stroke engine. I just purchased a new Honda HHE31C stick edger and that thing has mega torque. When my Stihls wear out it is all Honda for us.

    RedMax and Echo top the list for me...

    Buy from the dealer that gives you the best service and hopefully they have either RedMax or Echo
