Echo & Shindaiwa tie for first. Redmax would be a close second IMO. I only put Echo in front because I own and have used more Echo equipment then Shindaiwa or Redmax.

You must stoped by a sears and let a saleman get a hold of you :nono:
The other day I whent to a small sears in the next town just to ask if they ware a Commercial lawn dealer in that town.
LOL
He told me every thing that was not green was for the pros and not for Home owners :angry: and I almost had to beat him off with a stick so I could get out the door with out saying a few words LOL

Stihl is always a favorite. I love the looks of them..they feel like theyre well made. I just cant get past all the 4mix problems I read about. Valve always need adjusting, only use synthetic oil, only use hi octane gas......I will stick with Echo and Shindaiwa until I think they have perfected the "bugs".

Stihl, best overall. But if you have a negative opinion about any on the list I'm sure it's because you picked up a dud or two. All make great products, but for my money, Stihl's overall level of quality and innovation across their full range of products is too hard to beat.

i have several 4-mix units. i have never adjusted valves, never used synthetic oil and i use 89 octane gas. once you try one you will not consider anything else.
