    My business partners and I have thought about getting a walk behind due to them being cheaper. But I have heard some bad things about them so what do you guys think

    I think that depends on YOUR paticular situation if a w/b is good for you. I run w/b's because from what I have used in the past, they seem to suit ME best. Are your area's wide open, or tight, commercials or residentials?. How is your budget? etc... Hope this helps a little. Good luck.

    Walkbehinds are good machines.

    Which trimmer is better Echo or Stihl?

    In addition to my Z I have a 36" walkbehind. It gets in backyards I cant get my Z, it gives a great cut, is usless in reverse, and is my backup machine. So to answer your question, yes and no.
