Editor's Notes

April 16, 2019:

We were pleased with the variety of quality options--the field is not dominated by one or two leading brands. To those familiar with power equipment, there are some familiar names and models in our list, such as the Husqvarna FT900-CA and the Honda FG110, both of which ranked high on our list due to their reliability and rich features. The Champion 100379 beat out the Husqvarna slightly because it is a comparable machine at a lower cost.
