Answer: 
The ECHO 17 in. Rapid Loader Attachments for the PAS series are equipped with a gear reducing gear case which converts the drive shaft rotation from clockwise to counter-clockwise. The gear reducing gear case converts the high engine speed to low end torque needed to cut through heavy grass and or saplings.

Answer: 
There are several different thicknesses of cord that you can get for your weed eater. The thickest cord will cut most anything if you run your motor at full speed. If that will not do it there is a saw blade attachment you can purchase that should do the trick. I have both the trimmer and the saw blade attachments. I use the saw blade mostly because I trim through my woods and have small trees and briars Read More

Answer: 
The Rapid Loader is not designed for use with wire, however ECHO does offer line sizes from .080 - .155. The .155 in. diameter line can be used on units with engine displacements larger than 25 cc’s.

Answer: 
Unfortunately, the SRM-210 is designed for use as a trimmer only and cannot be converted to accept any attachments other than a blade. This ECHO PAS Attachments are compatible with the PAS models only.

Hi jack,
I'm Travis from The Home Depot. Thanks for visiting our site.
Your Echo model srm-210 is a unit that is not PAS compatible.
The Pro Attachment Series, or PAS that Echo builds requires that both power heads and the attachments are compatible.
The connection is half way down the drive shaft, not at the end.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I was looking for! Works exactly as described--turned my Echo PAS into a quick change machine!! February 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Item This is exactly what I expected as I had read the other reviews and I had a similar head on another weed trimmer. Love the attachment as the head stops spinning while the motor is idling as my other machine did not and always had to turn machine off to change out the cords. Two things that could be improved on this item. 1) The shaft of the trimmer near the head gets pretty hot during my 15 - 20 minutes of use 2) The grass guard needs to be about twice the size to really provide any protection Besides those two things love the addition to my echo pas attachments August 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ease of use Excellent value-trims well with the 0.90mm line. The line is easy to change and wears well. The PAS system allows for ease of tool change out. Outstanding tool! September 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works like a charm I needed a line-trimmer that would stand up to the demands of, not only, edging and clean-up; I needed a trimmer that could be used to keep the swail that cuts through my property neat and tidy. This trimmer head, combined with my PAS-266 does just that. I'll say that I was not impressed with the line segments that Echo provided, in truth they only made it a couple of feet before they failed; but once I picked up a spool of higher quality line and cut the 8" sections myself I was able to cut through anything that didn't have a woody stem, and even some of those were lopped off if I took it slow and nibbled it down. September 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Addtion to This Line I Already Own Performs well thusfar. If there is any kind of gripe I have it's that the directions are not exactly clear on how to put in or take out the line. I figured it out, but it took a bit of time in order to get it right and not break it. I would recommend using a thicker line. I'm using a thinner line only to use it up and it doesn't last long. But, it's not hard to replace; certainly easier than the stand-alone models. Just have to cut a roll of line into the right-sized pieces...unless you want to pay alot more by purchasing the line already cut into the 8" lengths. September 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 17" Rapid Loader Attachemnt Very easy change over from brush cutter attachment to the rapid loader attachment. Works excellent. September 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by With Rapid Loader comes decreased work time. I'm loving this trimmer. Time to do my yard is down by 10-15 minutes. Love the fact that it is not constantly spinning while the engine is running. Only when you give it the gas does it take off and start to do it's job. The only downside to this purchase was the delivery time, it took nearly three weeks. August 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great job Echo!!! For years I would never own any Echo product cause you could not depend on them. Echo, (for me) has jumped so far ahead of other "big name" products like Ryobi , Homelite,& Troy Bilt. Keep up the GREAT job August 5, 2014
