we had homelite on the farm growing up, but those gave way to stihl, and the two main ones we had when I was a teen...my dad still uses now, so my money is with stihl

So, you think I should go with a Craftsman? lol I have a Sears gas trimmer that I have literally thrown across the yard because it won't start. Neighbor had a Sears mower...same thing. I'll look at the Stihl. Thanks for all the input.

Not real topical, but I though it was kinda funny.1 I saw an ad for ... I think it was a Black and Decker thing that looked like the Jaws of Life, but had a 4-6"chain saw on the top, and a jaw on the bottom that was serrated like the Miracle Blade. It's an electric thing. You go up to a limb and clamp down on it like a big pair of pruning shears ... CRAZY.

Ahh.. Found the link....
Alligator Lopper.

That is just what I need for my yard.
