After a few weeks of use, it has far exceeded my expectations. What used to be an hour of frustrating work is now a 15 minute job with 200% better results.
Pro's include: heavy cutting string that is easy to re-load, fast starting, quiet running and the head stops turning when you let off the gas so you can safely walk around with it or even lay on the ground.
Con's - haven't discovered any yet.
For years Echo was sold with a gray motor casing. Then around three years ago I began to notice a change over to the current red casing. Whoops, the quality went down right after that the reason: the motor was no longer made by Kioritz Corp. and was now made by an outfit called Yamabiko. Big difference in quality!
Far less rated hours, far less performance, in short not worth a hoot! My machines must work every day and work well. Down time is not good. Machines that had lasted three or four seasons in the trying North Florida climate where you can almost hear the grass and weeds growing, were now not even making it through one summer without major repairs, and that money was in my opinion, wasted.
Echo products may be fine for a homeowner with a small yard, but in my opinion you would be better off paying a little more and purchasing a homeowner rated Stihl product. If you can find a gray motored Echo product with a Kioritz motor do so, you will get many years of service from your purchase, otherwise stop and buy something else.
I recently gave up trying to get my Homelite trimmer to work (properly, or at all usually) and my Black & Decker electric trimmer is a pain to use and the replacement spools are way too expensive, so I decided to try this trimmer out based on the other reviews at my local big-box store's website.
In a word ... WOW.
This thing is a beast. It is amazing. It is so far and above better quality than the Homelite piece of junk I had, and totally out-performs the Black & Decker, I simply cannot believe I had never tried a good piece of equipment like this.
My story, as brief as I can be:
I removed the packaging, read the directions (I know, crazy right?) and filled it with 2-cycle gas. I pressed the primer bulb several times, until the bulb filled up and fuel was returning to the tank. I put the choke on (70 degrees outside, meh) and yanked a few times. No luck. I turned off the choke and it fired up after about 3 pulls and idled nicely. I let it warm up for about a minute and then jammed it into some thick weeds and ivy that are a perennial problem on my fence and ... and ... and WOW it just tore right through the ivy like it was nothing. I mean, it absolutely DESTROYED it.
My old Homelite would choke and die on this ivy (and many smaller tasks). I ran this Echo through everything I could find at the edge of my yard and it just doesn't care, it rips right through it. It is an amazing machine. Over the course of a week I have managed to completely remove all the weeds, thick ivy and it's branch-like roots, small bushes, tall grass, and anything else that needed to be removed.Read more ›
After recently buying a house and needing a new weed eater for the first time in a couple of decades, I first bought a cheap 2 cycle Murray that ended up sucking... badly. An endless cycle of stalling and starting left me tired and frustrated after the first use. The trimmer was also too short for my comfort (I'm 6'0" tall). I was shopping for a replacement the next weekend.
I ended up buying an Echo SRM 225 from Home Depot. The first things I noticed were how balanced the trimmer was and how it was the right length for me (no stooping over!) As I was carrying it from the rack to the checkout counter I was stopped twice and complimented on my selection by other customers. One guy was a pro landscaper who had one of these himself and had only good things to say about it. I left feeling good about my purchase.
This trimmer has a 2 stroke engine that starts quickly and delivers smooth, reliable power throughout the throttle range. 1 or 2 pulls and the engine doesn't quit until you hit the stop switch. Echo has engineered vibration dampening into all the touch points. The front grip is the most comfortable on any weed eater I've held and cuts out almost all vibration going to your hands and wrists. The engine has some kind of vibration dampening coupling that makes the rear grip almost as comfortable as the front. And this thing is fuel efficient.Read more ›
