Default Which Trimmer To Buy

I am in the market for a inexpensive commercial trimmer that is new. i have been up in the air on husqvarna and Stihl. I prefer Huskey but the Stihl is more readily available in my area what does every one else think.

check to see if any dealers carry redmax, the better versions of the Husquvarna are just copies of the redmax as they own them. Echo is not bad just patchy on dealer support anymore.

Any specific reason why? My FS 250 has been going strong for 7 years now and the 110 I got awhile ago is a good trimmer.

I dont really have anything against any of the brands, my local shop sells mostly Stihl so that was the logical choice for me.
