But then again it depends on how you/employees take care of your equipment on how long it holds up.

I wear out a regular head about every 18 months. How long are the speed heads lasting?

I bought a stihl br600 in November thinking that it was going to be great. But it goes threw a full tank in about 45 minutes. And at about 15 hours use it lost all power (adjust valves) I've just been unhappy with it. I should have kept my echo pb-403. Wish u they best with your new purchase.
P.s I got my br600 for 425.00 out the door.

that is something I have not setup to track in my system, I am just going on customer complaints. Most of the guys I call commercial are running more then one trimmer so how often I sell one is misleading.
