Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by airtimebill Starts & run effortlessly and plenty of power.
I received as my birthday gift from my wife in June 2015 and have been very happy with it since. I have the trimmer/edger combo unit. The trimmer string loads very easily w/o even removing the string cartridge. Well done Echo!
However I received the straight shaft model and probably should have the curved shaft as the straight shaft can be a bit awkward to handle if you are 5'9" tall or less. It's just a little too long and I have to hold it up past a comfortable position to keep the trimmer head level. This causes fatigue if using for long trim sessions. No fault of Echo, just a word to the wise to choose your model with careful thought.
Overall, very happy with my gift.

Nothing else to say, this is by far the best weed whacker I've ever used.

I ordered this online after a great deal of research comparing this unit with the other "organge" brand's equivalent. After personally visiting a local distributor, comparing the prices and reading the reviews, I went with the Echo. The delivery was extremely fast (3 business days), assembly was a breeze and the unit works phenomenally well. I am very pleased with the quality, ease of assembly and use and the power of the unit. I'm looking forward to acquiring additional attatchments to,round out my lawn care needs. Mou can not go wrong with Echo,and Home Depot.

The Echo-PAS-225VP was exactly what I needed. It came with the edger and saved me from purchasing something else to take up space. I replaced a Homelite straight shaft with the Echo and I love it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DrDB Dependable and solid!
Owned for two months and so relieved to finally have a unit that does what is was designed to do. Starts every time, runs like a champ, and feels great in your hands. Purchased the package that included the PAS 225, edger and trimmer. Also added the blower. All work as designed but don't expect hurricane wind force from the blower. It's just for light cleanup. Only con is the weight of the unit over time but if you use a shoulder harness this is negligible. Hope I don't need to test the 5-year warranty but I'm looking forward to trouble free service for some time. You get what you pay for and this is a quality power tool.

Home Depot should have a picture of the entire kit, the power source along with the edger and speed feed trimmer. This kit is a better value than the one with the blower because it is the same price, but the curved edger sells for $10 more than the blower individually. I use this kit along with a blower, hedge trimmer and the extension to get my yard looking very nice with a lot less effort and more dependability than other products. With Echo you spend a little more money but that is because you are getting pro grade equipment that yard contractors use, and with a little maintenance it should last you a very long time. Very pleased with this product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tbui81 Everything u need in a trimmer and edger
I've been doing a lot of research on these multi attachment trimmers. I decided on the PAS 225 and it has not let me down. The easy pull start makes it easy. The trimmer head is awesome, not to mention the speed feed head. The edger is what does it for me. This thing cuts through like butter. I live on a corner lot with a sidewalk. It use to take me 10-15 minutes to do the task. Now it takes less than 5 minutes. Purchase this combo and you will not regret it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer281 Great purchase
I wasted my money on 2 other brands before deciding if I wanted a trimmer that would last and works great, might as well get what is on all of the lawn crew's trucks. I've used this trimmer 10 times for both edging and trimming and it works great. The edger has an open front allowing for cutting of higher edges. The power unit transfers power to the attachments very well and without vibration. I had a Craftsman unit of the same size that vibrated so much that my hands hurt after the same amount of work. I'm mad I didn't buy this kit first! Save your time and money and buy this kit! Worth every penny.
