I bought an Echo leaf blower and weed eater 30yrs ago, they are both going strong, zero repairs since I bought them, may need new purge bulbs this season!

Rob, I bought an Echo 16inch chainsaw last year and it’s a nice tool for the money.

Out in the field
Echo is a Japanese Company, some credit them with making the first leaf blower by modifying some kind of plant sprayer. I have a Sthil MS270. Don't need tools to adjust the chain. Pretty sweet setup.

Went ahead and bought it, let the saw dust fly...


Snail, I didn’t seek your expert opinion and input because of the limited selection in our one horse town.

Been a Millwalkee guy for many years, between my 2 boys and I we have a staggering amount of Mill stuff. Got into some busted copper pipe today also, 7 different breaks in one house, so far :dash2: my youngest boy is a home remodeler/builder and we tried out this new tool he picked up at the pawn shop ( I hate pawn shops), what a bad ass piece of kit. No jacking with trying to solder a dripping copper pipe, which is damn near impossible (I don’t like jamming bread in the pipe) to sweat a decent joint.

Just watched a couple videos on that.
It's connected to your phone? I understand locking out a stolen one, but uploading every press for data? wtf for?

Austin, not sure what you mean? Connected to phone ? Uploading ? Just what are you referring to?

I use my Propress tool almost every day and can't say enough good things about. When fitting multiple joints its very helpful to take a Sharpie and mark the pipe at full insertion. That way you easily see if the pipe has backed out before you press. Saves fittings and time. Ask me how I know.
He is going to love that thing.

I'm sincerely hoping that's an option you have to sign up for and activate, probably even a monthly or yearly subscription.

There's just no beating that m18 system though.

IVe told this story before. My brother bought the ice auger attachment for ice fishing. Said you can dig 100 holes before running out the battery.

no more oil and gas and hauling around some big heavy turd to the lake.

Millwalkee makes some good shit as long as you dont buy the tools at Homie Dopot. The have their own line from Millwalkee that has more plastic parts and not quite as roust as buying other places.
