    Which of these brands overall produce the least vibration when using, such as trimmer, blower, edger, etc.

    As for blowers, Solo is better for noise, power, AND vibration...

    I can't say I've noticed any differences with the trimmers, they all seem to have a little bit of vibration. As for the blowers, I've never really felt any vibrations to speak of from my Redmax or Stihl. I can't really speak of Echo because all the ones I've used did vibrate pretty bad but were also pretty old so that would be expected.

    Actually, none of them vibrate too bad but my overall favorite product is the Redmax.

    say a brand and have answers that one is better then the other.

    Every model is different.

    Red Max's blowers may be smoother then Stihl, but Stihls trimmers might be smoother then redmax.

    Have a dealer fire one up for you and try it out.

    The 4 mix is very smooth. As for the old fs85, my arm hurt after two lawns:cry:

    I like Redmax, Solo dose have some impressive blowers. Though not impressive enough for me to switch.

    Redmax trimmers are not as solid as stihl. but are okay.
