    Husqvarna, no question. Best power to weight ratio out there, and good prices to boot.

    Sure they are cheap and powerful, but do they last when used commercially? No way!

    I love my 2012 stihl FS90R, but my two echos are 16-17 years old and still start every time and perform excellently.

    Redmax, I have dozens of customers using them commercially for over ten years and going strong. Also check out Dolmar 4 strokes.

    I run husquvarna and red max, love them both. I believe the newer redmax handheld products are the same as the huskies? That is what iI was told at least...

    Definately Stihl..but Shindaiwa is the best trimmer, if you have a dealer that carries that brand.
