Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 11 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 excellent trimmer, highly recommended Hi everybody, I got this trimmer a couple days ago and absolutely love it. Echo did a great job making it feel balanced and have low vibration. The bump feed head is SUPER easy to use and the engine sounds great. I was going to get a Stihl, but after visiting home depot and finding the 230, I decided not too. I also saved 50 bucks compared to the Stihl for a trimmer that is just as good. I already ran 2 tanks through it and there was little vibration. The engine has great torque. At 1/4th throttle it powers through moderately thick grass. In the box is a 2.6 oz. oil container, safety glasses, and two instruction manuals. The only drawback is not coming with a harness. Definitely get one, it saves your arms from having to hold it. The carburetor and throttle lock look a little flimsy, but proved sturdy after a day of use. I highly recommend this product! :). March 17, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Weedwacker ! I bought this weedwacker 6-8-09 And it has been absolutely great ! I ran about 2 gallons through it this year and I cut some 7 FT tall grass with it with .130 string and with the after market ECHO trimmer head. This thing starts right up every time no matter if its 100 Degrees out or 20 degrees out. It could have a little more power but it does the job pretty good, Haven't had a single problem with it yet ! Great product highly recommended ! December 26, 2010
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Trimmer!!! We've had Troy-Bilt Bolens, Ryobi, & GreenMachine and the Ryobi and GreenMachine models didn't last that long but this ECHO SRM 230 is a good trimmer. Beautiful trimmer!!! Well done, ECHO!!! October 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic product This is my second Echo outdoor power tool and, like my pruner chainsaw, it has not disappointed. Easy to start, runs well, and eats heavy weeds/grass easily. The larger fuel tank on this model is handy. I trimmed the entire front and back yards in one pass and still had ~1/4 tank left. That's about 1.5 acres and I was at it for about an hour. Nice to not have to stop midway through and walk back to refuel. May 15, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Echo SRM 230 This is great trimmer. I had a Stihl for 15 years and it finally gave up the ghost. This trimmer is powerful and cuts through heavy weeds pretty easy. My only issue has been stringing the spool I've got a little more practice under my belt and it is not too bad. Overall this an outstanding weed eater and am looking forward to many years of service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best of breed! I've used my echo srm230 for over 2 years now and has always perform flawlessly. This cost more than the echo 225 but you get a boost in power which can really make a difference in heavy weeds. I have a small lawn service (8 yards) I take care of in the summer and it gets used a lot. Great machine! November 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IMPRESSIVE.... Bought my 230 a couple of months ago. This little powerhouse is awesome. Very easy to start and handle. Very well balanced. Had several Weed Eater and Poulans in the years past, never again. The straight shaft is much better than the curved, in my humble opinion. HOPE it works the same for years!....Thought about buying another one just for the heck of it.....:)..........Lonnie October 10, 2013
