Which do you use and why?
Time is money, there is no money using handheld unless you just do for partime extra money which don't care for time...
Backpack gets things , big things, done three times faster than handheld.

we use stihl, and we use both. i've read threads on here where it was said if you use a handheld, you aren't a professional. give me a break. both have their place, couldn't do a cleanup without a backpack, that's a given. but on postage stamps lawns that have no driveway, whip out the handheld. we'll use a handheld in that situation any day of the week.

I've got an Echo 755 on the trailer, along with a 751.

For those that don't know Echo products, they'd both be backpacks.
