Distributed by the same company, these brands make for a unique dynamic. Under the Echo brand, you’ll find handheld products for the consumer and homeowner. The company was not only the first to build a weed wacker, but also offers the longest warranty in the business on trimmers, chainsaws, blowers, and portable attachment series. With 5 years’ peace of mind, you’ll spend less time worrying about repairs and more time worrying about how nice your yard looks.


Shindaiwa products are essentially the red versions of Echo products. Offering a very similar lineup, this is Echo’s professional sibling. Again, with 5 years of warranty for the consumer and 2 years for the professional landscaper, these products are destined for a long life. Another of Shindaiwa’s claim to fame is their special “Speed-Feed” line heads. This durable head puts a new spin on rewinding line and can be mounted on most brands of trimmers. Instead of fumbling with your trimmer’s spool every time you’re out of line, this head requires maybe 30 seconds to return to work. Just line up the arrows with the eyelets, send 14’ of line through, and spin your head against itself and you’ll be back to trimming in no time. You can see a video here.

Bear Cat

Under the Bear Cat name, you’ll venture away from handheld and two-stroke to four-stroke wheeled goods. Generators, chipper/shredders, power washers, water pumps, and trimmers on steroids are just a few of the products Bear Cat offers. In addition to this full lineup, we also stock full lines of accessories for these quality products. Unlike their handheld goods, most of these products come with three year guarantees; however, rest assured that the durability makes for very few warranty repairs anyways.


If you’re looking for a quality rototiller or many other implements, look no further. Made in Italy, BCS tractors are probably the heaviest duty walk-behind tractors on the planet. With a lifetime warranty on their transmissions and a 3-year warranty on their engines, it’s actually not uncommon to wear through several engines in the 50 years you’ll own this machine. Whether you’ve got a small farm and don’t need a compact utility tractor, or you’re just looking to till up your yard with the best of the best, come talk to us today about BCS.

Beware the name-brand products found in department stores, such as Home Depot and Lowes. Products such as trimmers and chainsaws can indeed be genuine Echo products, however, these stores never have the full line of options most people need. Just like not all shoes fit the same, one trimmer will not fit everyone’s needs. Furthermore, most people are surprised to find these identical models in our store for significantly less money. We know these brands are found elsewhere and we monitor these company’s prices to ensure you get the best deal if you shop where the customer service is also obviously superior. Come have a chat!
