Have Not Had a Single Moment of Downtime!
I have in my fleet the following Echo units: a CS-370,a SRM-230,a SRM-280T, and a HC-150. It is so important that I have zero down time due to not only the number of clients I have but the perfection-level quality they expect. Down time is not an option. In the three years I have been using ECHO with my company, I have not had a single minute of downtime. Performance is awesome. The SRM-280T is unblieveable in its power, i run the .155 size line in it, and its cuts through just about anything. I also have products from ECHO's sister company, Shindaiwa, and they are also execeptionall well built, tough, dependable, powerful machines just like their ECHO counterparts. Both are far and above anything else out there. Especially Stihl. I also maintain a fleet for a large company in Atlanta that runs Stihl exclusively, and I have been able to get them to buy a few PB-770T blowers, and the cost of owning an ECHO vs a Stihl BR600 is over 75% less during the life cycle of the machine. I promise you will have less problems with ECHO versus any other brand.
