Stihl or Echo multisystem?

Hi Guys,

I am in need of a multisystem and was wondering what you all recommend?

I have personal experience with the FS110 weed eater but never liked the balance or the throttle control of the machine. I must admit I've had this machine since it first came out.

Did Stihl improve the 4-mix units?

I also looked into echo and absolutely LOVE the 2-strokes from echo. However, a lot of people complained about the weight of the engine.

Between both Stihl and Echo I have always loved Echo's smooth power and robust machines, and Stihl 4-mix for their AMAZING power to weight ratio.

What do you guys suggest? My local dealer sells Stihl, Echo and Shindaiwa.

I just bought the Stihl FS110R from my dealer in Leesburg Virginia. Man does it have power. I really like the design of the head attachment. It is easy to re spool. I also bought the HL 135 hedge trimmer attachment. It is very easy to swap the attachtments and really feels like a robust machine. I am getting the hang of feathering the throttle so I can get around flower beds without deforesting everything.(LOL).
