A CARB complaint means it is low emissions and meets the California Air Recorces Board but it should not matter if you don't live In California

Customer Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I am very satisfied I bought this model to replace my old curved-shaft Echo. The old one still works great, but recently purchased a new home with more land and obstacles. I found myself to be hunched over for 3 hours trimming around and edging. NOT ANY MORE. I am just shy of 6' and no longer have to bend over to reach everything I could not with a curved-shaft. The trimmer starts and idles perfectly each time with 3 pulls at the most after a slow prime pull. The power is there as well. It feels very well made/sturdy. Over-all its a well-balanced, well-made, power house trimmer that I forsee lasting for years just like the STILL running Echo it replaced. July 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Easy to use and started right up. Being able to install the string without disassembling the head was a welcome relief. Plenty of power for the homeowner. October 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great running trimmer Trimmer ran great right out of the box and still does August 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT WEEDEATER Very happy with this trimmer. Easy to start. Runs smooth. Tap the head and the string feeds automatically. Makes it through the toughest situation with ease. Would recommend it to anyone. By the way, I'm not prone to brag on hand-held, gas powered devices. This one is the exception. June 30, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by runs great This is my second Echo weed eater I have owned. My last Echo lasted 15 years. I have used this one all last spring and no trouble with it at all. My only complaint is that it seems to have so much vibration that my fingers are all numb and I can hardly bend my fingers. I use it anywhere from 6 to 8 hours a day. I even put pipe foam insulation around the handle and the grip where the throttle lever is. That seemed to help some what with the vibration. I use this any where from 3 to 6 days a week. It is a great working weed eater. March 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far, much better than my old trimmer. Much quieter and less vibration than my Ryobi gas trimmer. Starts easily and the handle has a comfortable shape. The bump head line feeder actually works and it helps reduce work time because I don't have to stop and pull extra line out by hand. March 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great weed eater This is my second echo weed eater I have bought. The first one I bought was in 1999 and lasted me 15 trouble free years. I got this one because I wanted one that had more power then their SRM225. some of my customers have weeds 4 feet tall and it cuts right thru with no problem at all. It starts right up and runs all day long. If you want one that will get the job done and run for many years, then you can not go wrong buying this weed eater. Stay away from the cheap ones because you will have buy a new one every year. Echo is a great product! April 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SR 230 trimmer absolutely happy with it I've had trimmers before and this one is just great.I will never buy another brand January 13, 2015
