I would go with Echo again. I have always been quite satisfied with all of Echo's power equipment. Their equipment is very reliable and I have had very few problems. I would go with ECHO

I bought an Echo 260, I believe is the model number with the new "tornado" engine. Runs great, starts easily. I just today purchased a Stihl FC85 edger, which I haven't even started yet. I bought it largely because of it being mentioned on so many postings. It seemed to be the favorite of many users of this site.

I use Echo trimmers, edgers, and blowers. I am going to buy several new pieces this year and was thinking about another brand but I have never had a Echo to go out on me so I will prob stay with them.

Haha... Toehill, we put those echos through total abuse. When I say we have never had one go out on us I mean as far as engines blowing up etc... every now and then I have to fool around with a couple of things and change the spark plugs, air filters etc.. If I am able to get 2 years out of them I am happy, they have paid for themselves plus made me a great profit.
