    Hey Lazer,<p>What blower do you like best? Stihl or Echo, you said you use both of them.<br>Also, is Red Max or Shindaiwa any good? They look very powerful. Are they durable?

    OIC $1 per min huh? I guess all the yards are side by side? And all the rich people live in one area? And there is no travelling involved? And all the rich people have small yards? With no blowing off the drives? No weedeating? uh huh

    Lazer,<br>I too had all echo blowers untill about 2 years ago.Tried out a stihl that was on sale and now replacing all of the echos with stihl. They seem lighter and have more power.<br>Echo made some changes over the years that i just didnt like. I still use echo trimmers though.<br>Mark
