    I have a Stihl BG85 and an Echo PB210.
    Which of these is the better blower and why?
    Both of these are the top of the line for each company. Echo says the PB210 was designed with professionals in mind, but they don't get specific. The Stihl is noticeably more powerful than the Echo, but the Echo is powerful enough for what a hand held is usually used for.
    Anyway, I'm going to get rid of one of these. Which one should I keep? All things being equal, I'm leaning toward keeping the Stihl, but if the Echo is going to be more durable....:confused:
