It could NOT be easier... Simply loosen the large black wing nut, press the umbrella style locking nipple and remove. Reverse order to switch to the next attachment. 10 seconds maybe!

This is a straight shaft, not a curved shaft trimmer. The edger has a slight curve to do its job, but the trimmer has a straight shaft.

Both pictures on the Home Depot website picture the straight shaft edger attachment. I would assume the Home Depot is shipping what they have pictured. They would never picture a more expensive edger attachment and ship a less expensive one, would they?

Does this include the trimmer and Edger attachment plus the main motor? I don't have a weed eater at all and want to be sure it isn't just the attachments.

Answer: 
The only attachments for this combo package is the trimmer and the edger, but there are many other attachments that you can buy. An example you can attach a blower and a hedge trimmer, you can find all attachments by searching echo trimmer attachments on the HD site.

Does this have enough power for all the attachments?

I've heard concerns that this model does not have enough power for all of the attachments and only works well on attachments that require less performance - any thoughts on this. I am specifically interested in also getting the cultivator and pruner at some point.

Answer: 
Don't know about the cultivator but the chain saw does well as long as you don't force it or pinch it. Haven't had any power problems with the edger or trimmer as the unit seems to handle them without any stalling or other problems.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 166 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Product I purchased my SRM-210SB power head/trimmer/edger combo in 2002. I have had no problems with this machine at all. Still running strong after 14 seasons of cutting grass in my yard as well as taking care of my father's place. I added the power pruner three years ago, and I wish I would have bought it sooner. I brag to everyone about my Echo when given the chance. Buy own for yourself and you'll see why. August 14, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Significantly under powered for edger I just purchased this, based on the quality of my current Echo SRM - 2100 trimmer. Planned to use the old, still working great after a carb replacement a year ago, at our lake house. This new unit does not have the RPMs or power of the old unit. Easily came to a complete stop when edging. Seriously considering a return because of how under powered it is for the task. Quality is good, but it does seem heavier than my old unit as well. June 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This combo trimmer and edger is top notch. Has power, easy to crank, balanced,etc. This model fits my needs to the Max! Easy to start, like the method of changing from the trimmer to the edger attachment. The only negative comment that I have about it , is that it is somewhat heavy. However, it is in my opinion, there are well more positive things with the use of this trimmer, than being somewhat heavy to hold. When I get tired of weed eating, I shut it down, and do something else in my yard. There are surely other things that I can do in maintaining my yard when I get tired of trimming. For $300.00 dollars and solving both my trimming, and edging of my yard, this Echo product is truly awesome! Rob Tuminello Baton Rouge,La. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Machine Just purchased the VP and tried out the trimmer for the first time. Assembly of the attachment was easy. Followed the starting procedures and after priming with the recommended pumps a singal pull with the choke on the engine started on the next pull with choke off. Worked perfectly and what power to cut weeks / blackberries. Can't wait to try the edger. My friend recommended after I looked at a Stihl Kombi. Got a lot better value with Echo. July 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Attention to detail I tend to research items thoroughly before pulling the trigger on purchases ( I have been burned to many times in the past ). I can tell you first hand the Echo line of trimmers are world class. Very thoughtful design in the smallest of details, yields a very happy customer. For example: Grease ports in all the key spots for great longevity of your purchase, a simple retention device so you don't loose the gas cap or drop it in the dirt, very effective anti vibration materials everyplace, the rubber grips your hands come in contact with are like a golf club, the trimmer line head is the best on the market ( so...simple and elegant ) and would cost you $30 to add ( its standard and pre-filled so your ready on day one to go ), the engine has covers designed in to keep you away from the hot parts & accidental damage from tossing it around, the parts that need to be heavy duty are just that, while the parts that don't are designed with light weight material to keep the weight down, change over to a new tool attachment could not be simpler with no extra tools required. The power this little motor puts out is mind blowing. I had other units in the past with considerably larger engines ( that you had to pull for days to get started ), this engine puts them all to shame in virtually every matrix you could come up with ( power, weight, noise, vibration, ease of starting, fuel consumption and so on . . . ). Hats off to the designers and engineers at Echo for a job well done!! I couldn't be happier with my purchase and look forward to trying out all the other wonderful attachments you came up with for this dream machine. August 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The perfect combo! This was my best investment! Coming from a 4 stroke Craftsman trimmer and edger kit, I saved right off that bat buying the combo. Not to mention I can just feel the difference in power with the ECHO. Also on another note, the speed feed head makes adding line a walk in the park!!! So it's little down time when adding! August 16, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Way under powered for the edger attachment I just purchased this, based on the quality of my current Echo SRM - 2100 trimmer. Planned to use the old, still working great after a carb replacement a year ago, at our lake house. This new unit does not have the RPMs or power of the old unit. Easily came to a complete stop when edging. Seriously considering a return because of how under powered it is for the task. Quality is good, but it does seem heavier than my old unit as well. I'm rating quality low because it is a significantly under powered unit. You have to get the edger up to speed, then start the edging. Putting the edger down first causes it to not even start moving the edger blade. June 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product! Great product! Great price! Will last for the years to come and will never had a bad battery. Great quality and very easy to use. For the price, nothing is out there that's better! August 16, 2016
