    Hi, over the winter I want to purchace a new blower, trimmer, and stick edger. I have debating over which ones to get for a while now, but still have not made a decision. If you were buying these and did not have a budget, what would you buy. (brand, model)

    Redmax has a beastly blower, Stihl will last forever and Echo are made well and affordable. I plan on buying all Echo over the winter.

    I like the Kawasakis.
    They're easier on your hands and ears, with the same power as the others.

    For Blowers I use Echo and Redmax..Echo 755's for general purpose to medium duty leaf cleanups,Redmax 8000 & 8001's for heavy duty cleanup work(8000 & 8001's are literally "heavy" tools for heavy work).

    My Trimmer's- stick edger's -- Sthil FS 100-110 trimmer's and FC 110 Stick edgers.

    The FS 100 is a light powerful general purpose trimmer. The solid drive shaft and powerful torque of the 4-mix engines gets up the power to cut overgrowth on sidewalks un-edged in years.
