Comment:
I had a top of the line Sthil at twice price of ECHO. Sthil was constantly in shop even though I followed the maintenance religiously. they even told me the calibrator had to be replaced because gas station sold me bad gas. In three years the maintenance was twice cost of Sthil. After three Years the Echo has never failed to start and at least get job done. With ECHO I have been slack with maintenance and finally it would not start. New Filters, plug and the special premixed gas and it runs like a charm again. I will never buy a Stihl again but I will buy an ECHO. ECHO is half the cost and three times the quality of the Stihl!

This trimmer is a very good unit--no repairs since I have owned this unit. It is a little awkward but handles very good otherwise.
