What is everyone's opinion on Echo vs Stihl??
I am quite happy with my echo PB-602 backpack blower and my Stihl FS-80 trimmer.
And, I imagine that if I dropped my echo blower on my stihl trimmer from a height of 40 feet, I would probably do a lot of damage to both.
Stihl was around first right? Looks to me like everyone copies there products.
Whats that tell you?
I use both, but I like Stihl alot more...they're easier to use, easier to work on, are made better, and last a lot longer...
Thanks guys I was leaning towards the Stihl, Only for the reason they were just a little cheaper, I was quoted 560 for the string trimmer and the 90* adjustable hedge clippers. The echo was 650. Do these sound ok??
Go with Stihl. You will not regret spending a little extra money for it.
All my equipment is Stihl . ( trimmers,edges,blowers,hedge trimmers,chainsaw) STIHL IS # 1
$560 and $650???? i have 4 stihl trimmers fs80 and fs85's. none were more than $$280.
i started buying stihl because i get them at 10% over cost i bought a fs-75 edger,two bg55 blowers, stihl axe, fs85 extreme trimmer lighter than most trimmers on the market ( because my shindiawa went down),farm boss,hs45 hedgetrimmer. best equipment i have ever run.
