Answer: 
The "T" at the end of the trimmer models stands for Torque. These models feature 50% more cutting torque than any other standard trimmer.

Does this unit come from the factory with a head that can be reloaded with .095 nylon without having to remove the head and manually wrap the head and then reinstall the head?
I'm wanting the style of the head to be the kind that the nylon is inserted through a hole in the side of the head and pushed through to come out the other side and then twist the head to load the nylon. Does this unit come standard with that type of loading?
I'm hoping so.

17 in. Straight Shaft Gas Trimmer is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Plenty of power I've used this weed eater twice now and I weed eat quite a bit on a few acres. Any time I get a new tool it takes a few times to get used to. Well on the 2nd time, it felt more comfortable to me than the 1st time. The motor has plenty of power and the bump feed is the best that I've seen, it feeds the string so easy. Installing the string is even easier, you just line up the marks and feed your string in with equal amounts and then wind it in by rotating the head, that part is genius! My only complaint is that I wish the trigger was a little longer because I have to operate the trigger with one finger. I weed a couple of big ditches so my trigger finger gets a little tired. I suppose someone with larger hands may not have this petty complaint. I highly recommend the SRM-280s.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots Of Power Lots of power, cuts through almost anything. Use the 95 string the 80 has a tendency to get sucked inside. You should be aware that solid shafts vibrate a lot more than cable shafts so if you don't need to cut thick brush and weeds on a regular basis get the cable shaft.This thing will cut down trees as thick of my finger. This is my second 280, someone stole my first one but it ran great for the two and a half years that i had it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great trimmer Works great. Hope it stays strong for years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don't buy anything else Just bought the SRM 280/S. It's FANTASTIC! It replaced a 15 year old SRM 260S- a winner also! I considered the 280T, but did not want higher RPM's in order to get more cutting torque. The 280S has an awesome attack, and far more torque than my prized old 260S. Believe me, this is all the whiskers you will ever need! I used to own a commercial lawn service in Florida. I moved to Tennessee and retired with 7 acres to care for. I brought much of my Echo equipment with me and I am an Echo fan - exclusively! No other manufacturer builds comparable product period.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hands down BEST TRIMMER ever! I bought my 280t thinking I could throw absolutely anything at it. It has taken just that. I have run a forester chainsawtooth blade on it and cut down 8" cedars and I have used it for weekly trimming. One extreme to the other its an awesome trimmer and suprisingly easy on fuel. If you're in the market for a heavy duty trimmer I HIGHLY recommend the 280t . You get the gear reduction for more torque, a speed feed 450 head, a fuel sipping giant, and a 5 yr warranty. The competition has none of these its a no brainer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Echo's the #1 product on the market. I purchased this and used it 6 hours straight around my property and like my old echo it keep running and running. Love this trimmer it has the steel shaft in case I want to put a different head on it. Echo it the best product on the market , you cannot go wrong with Echo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Commercial grade trimmer! Don't settle for the off the shelf trimmers. They don't have enough HP to trim heavy loads. The Steel drive cable is a must for long term heavy duty use. We have 2.5 acres, so lots of trimming to do. The SRM-280S is professional model that is a great long term asset for the average homeowner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable - holds up well We have been using these for several years - 26 weeks a year. They are operated by seasonal help from a temporary employment agency. So many different hands have held each piece - we have six ECHO trimmers now and they hold up to being handled by a variety of folks each year. They are reliable and easy to maintain and repair.
