Has anyone else heard? Just got my Lawn and Landscape newsletter emailed to me and the top story is that Echo and Shindaiwa are merging. Both ECHO and Shindaiwa are well respected premium brands in the outdoor power equipment industry. The merger of these operations will result in an efficient organization with lower costs, allowing both brands to be even more competitive in the North and South American markets, said Yasushi Asamoto, chairman of Yamabiko. What is the general feeling here? I have all Echo handhelds and like them and we all know Shindaiwa is good. Is this a new powerhouse?
