    I have 2 stihl backpacks and every year I have a starting issue. Nothing has broke yet but I had clogged filter screens, gas in the muffler, and just random nonsense.

    The shindy after 3 years needed a carb kit.

    The redmax after 5 years is in the shop right now for a no start issue.

    I havent had a problems with the others besides what is mentioned but the stihls have a issue once or twice a year. There not junk like echo but are high in maintenance.

    Actually the BR600 is kind of weak for a top of the line blower.

    This past season was my first year and I use a Toro 36" t-bar gear drive mower, Echo 235 weedwacker, all Echo chainsaws, hedge trimmers, pole saw/hedge trimmer. As well as a Husqvarna 130BT, I bought this unit for $199 at Lowes two years ago before I was a business. I cut 15 lawns a week then and this season I was cutting 20 lawns a week and the Husqvarna can take care of any grass clean-up but it is on the weaker side for leaves, only 150mph. I have no complaints, I was trying to save and I feel that I save my money exactly were I needed to when I was starting out. I haven't done any maintenance to it and it still runs like new.

    Highly recommended for grass clipping clean-up.

    I was actually 3 minutes from bairs when it crapped out. To bad I didn't buy it from them, could have had it replaced within 15 minutes.
