    In the market for a new trimmer/blower. I got an Echo dealer local, anyone have recommendations. I'm not buying another homeowner 2 season model, want them to last.

    I agree with you being reluctant to buy any more homeowner-grade equipment. I also gave up on that decades ago. But it's not clear to me exactly what you are looking for. Does "trimmer" mean a hedge or a string trimmer? And by "blower", does that mean you want a backpack, a hand-held, or a walk-behind blower?
