Who makes the best and most dependable for the money. I do know the Shindawa is about 30.00 more than the Echo at our local dealer. I have always used Redmax, but all the dealers in this area are dropping this line because of distribution problems. I am tired of trying to find parts. I had a mechanic tell me the new Echos are as good as Shindawa. I would like to hear what you all have to say. Thank you.

When i was at the echo dealer last week hs was telling me that the echo engines are rated for 300 hrs by the epa while most are 100-150. I have never herd this but from the prices and because I liked him i will be buying a echo 260 power source and pb460 blower in the next month or so. I feel that this is the best bang for the buck. Good luck.

I use echo for my blowers and edgers, but i do have one shindaiwa string trimmer. both have worked great for me, I think they are both great products, but i have to admit i am a little more fond to my shindaiwa
