    Never used shindaiwa. I've always had Echo trimmers and have had no reason to try anything else. They're lightwieght and reliable also very comfortable to use.

  4. Buy STHIL u will not be dissapointed I finally bought one after blowing up 2 lesser trimmers. It will pay for itself in a few weeks.

    We use both Echo and Stihl. I'd recommend either.

    I have to agree that Echo and Stihl are both great for commercial use, I have used both but prefer Echo...but I do not really have any complaints about the Stihl product, there just seem to be more Echo dealers where I am.....Eric
