Ok so these are the three I hear the most about on here. So first let me say this.. Ive never used shindaiwa stuff, but Ive heard they are the absolute best small engine machines ever, and the only kawasaki stuff Ive ever run is the engines on the mowers and we all know they are #1, so Im very interested in the small engine stuff they make. But I have however heavily used stihl, echo, redmax and tanaka blowers, trimmers, stick edgers, weedwackers and chainsaws. Im absolutely tired of anything redmax, after the restrictions they're junk. Echo makes decent stuff (I know they've merged with shindaiwa) but its budget. I hated stihl weedwackers and trimmers cause they were too heavy and were less reliable than the redmax stuff in the trailer! chainsaws are their best product. Anyway, my tanaka tht 2120 is the lightest friggin machine, a little short, but its wayy better than my echo hc-150. And my Echo pb-755 is great but its got too much stress on your right shoulder. Soo before I begin to purchase anything new... What is it? If you were gonna standardize your gear would you go with shindaiwa, kawasaki or tanaka?
