I bought this machine because I was looking for a trimmer that had the features I was looking for.

We bought this Echo trimmer/brush cutter recently. My husband loved it before he got it out of the box because we have a lot of brush on the periphery of the yard that needs attending. i was skeptical as I do most of the yard upkeep and am very short, have arthritic knees and an old chest injury so, most yard tools don't fit me well or are difficult to manage. This machine is easy to start, if you follow the clear directions provided. I trimmed for about an hour the first time out and, while getting the machine balanced for the operator is a two man operation, once done, the harness really helps ease the physical stress on the operator. I am a 57 year old woman with physical limitations and i would recommend this to others. We will, however, buy the harness shown on-line as the one that came with it is difficult to adjust and not well made.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mtnview This cutter is great
This brush cutter does a great job taking out anything in its path. It has cranked every time with minimum effort. The 4 point harness is a must with this beast. I like the fact it can be used with blades as well as string. The engine runs smooth with Echo oil and ethanol free gas. Its well balanced for the size and easy to maneuver. I wish I had bought one years ago.

The best string trimmer I have ever owned. I have not tried it as a brush cutter ,but I am sure it will be a good tool for that too!
