    Perhaps because there are more Stihls than any other brand? We have had excellent luck with Stihl for over 15 years.

    I'm glad to hear that. Again, not knocking the entire line. Maybe I'm old fashioned, I just can't get on board with 4cycle handheld equipment.

    Better to throttle down if need be...than to wish you had more power when you really need it.

    Have said this more than a few times...but, a BIG BP pays for itself over a handheld (or small BP) each and EVERY year...and AGAIN during leaf season. So 3-5 years from now...yeah. Afford it'll thank yourself later many fold.

    If you have not seen it

    And if you did not know
    Redmax 8500 = Husqvarna 580BTS
    Redmax 7500 = Husqvarna 570BTS
    Husqvarna bought out the Redmax line back in 2007
