if i decide to replace the head of the weed eater can the factory one be removed and replaced with an aftermarket head? I don't like having to replace the line with a spool and I'd rather put a different head on it and replace the string individually

Answer: 
The trimmer line may not be long enough. If the line is not fully extended it may get sucked back into the cutting head when reducing speed. The trimmer line could be melted. This could be caused by cutting too closely to hard objects like concrete, or chain link fences with the middle of the line instead of using the tips of the line to cut.

The trimmer line may not be long enough. If the line is not fully extended it may get sucked back into the cutting head when reducing speed. The trimmer line could be melted. This could be caused by cutting too closely to hard objects like concrete, or chain link fences with the middle of the line instead of using the tips of the line to cut. When cutting with the trimmer line too close to an object, or by not using the tips of the line, a lot of friction and heat is built up inside the trimmer head. This buildup of heat causes the line to melt.The spool was installed upside down. The Speed Feed 400 cutting head offers the ability to use it on units that run clockwise and counter clockwise. If the head is installed on a SRM or a 58V trimmer then the letter "L" on the spool should be facing out. If the letter "R" is facing out then the spool should be flipped over and the head can be reassembled. Read Less

I had similar problem once and found out cause was to much line wound around. Try putting less line in and give everything a squirt of WD40. Good Luck.

Answer: 
Are you loading the string properly? You are supposed to push the proper amount of line into and through the spool, then turn the spool in the proper direction as per instructions in the manual. Have you checked online with Echo via their support drop down?
No need to take the spool apart. Just feed the line into and through the spool.

Answer: 
Check to make sure the string is put in correctly. If it is, take the machine back to Home Depot as they have individuals in the dept. that are knowledgeable and should be able to correct the problem and this way you will then know what to do next time. If they cannot help you just return it for a new one. As ours works great.

Mine works fine, just make sure that when you are winding the string in you di it slow so it will not overlap and get caught up when it comes out.

Answer: 
When you push on the head by hand does it go in? If not you have a bad spring. If it does, try taking the internal spool out and turn it over.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 1009 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Worth the money I've had many string trimmers over the years, but this Echo has been the best by far. This trimmer is light, powerful, quieter than average and reliable. I'm glad I didn't opt for the larger engine, as the 21.2cc has plenty of power and easily tore through two foot tall grasses and weeds. I cut the meadow across the stream and the neighbor's hillside too, on less than a tank of gas; and unlike my previous trimmer, I do not feel the need to wear hearing protection. I previously purchased a Echo blower/vac, and am very please with it as well. Echo does cost a little more than the average, but it once again proves that you get what you pay for. June 16, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product so far. Your mileage may vary. After researching quality, durable trimmers, I decided on this model.Note the "i" at the end. It has been very useful and very functional and works as reviewed. I also bought the steel blade attachment kit which is awesome. I only wish that switching back and forth between string trimmer and blade was not as involved as it is, but given the difference in guard types, etc, this is acceptable. Durability is still undetermined, but the device seems pretty solidly built. The shoulder harness (part of the blade kit) is highly recommended. June 30, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Solid, reliable trimmer Bought this a month ago and already put over 40 hours on this machine. Easy starting,reliable, trimmer cord is easy to replace and cuts through heavy weeds with ease. The only drawback is I bought without harness and fatigue on the wrists and hands after an hour on the trimmer is very evident. Highly recommend, however only drawback is the weight on the hands and wrists over a period of time. July 28, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by warranty no good Was less than a year old and had to have a new carb....just quit running suddenly.... Echo will not warranty any fuel issues....even if you use their fuel.....5 year warranty is a joke. I have 2 other two cycle pieces of equipment using the same fuel and they are running fine. Plus Dealer has had it for over 3 weeks putting a carb on...... Back to walmart to buy the throw aways.....at least they run for 3 years.....then toss em and buy another.....cheaper in the long run... Echo has lost a customer.....and by the way.....you can't post a negative review on their website...they won't let you.....so all of those positive testimontals are filtered..... June 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works great I just bought a srm.225 today 5/13/16 to replace my old srm 2300 that I bought in either 2000/2001.I have read that you can not use pas/att on the 225.I have all ready used my pas power pruner on it .worked fine. May 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best product This weed eater is very powerful and light easy to use starts quickly every time I enjoy it recommend it June 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awsome trimmer machine, bought 4-17-2014 For me this machine is what I want in a yard trimmer. I go from cutting grass to buzzing a bush. It has the power when needed for thick heavy wet grass and or vine. I put the smack down on what ever grows out of place. Easy starting every time with smooth idle to screaming string like a killer hornet. I love it, I am picky about my tools and it does the job for me every time. I can depend on it. I buy mid grade fuel mix in good two stroke oil and no problems. I do burn out some string but to me that is to be expected as to what I'm smacking down. Great tool. bought it 4-17-2014 and it will scream all day with no problems. Electric or battery tools don't compare to this for what I use it for. July 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great yard tool Very easy to assemble, actually stupid easy since the thing is already assembled. Just load the included string and some pre-mix gas. Make sure to use super unleaded as mentioned in the instructions. A few quick pulls and the trimmer is ready for action. The engine warms up quickly and only requires a minimum of choke. The string lengthens with just a tap on the ground. So far, I am very impressed with this unit. My original trimmer was a Toro which functioned for over 15 years before the shaft bearings wore out. The next unit was a Poulan, and that one was utter garbage. Only lasted a few years before the engine refused to start and the pull mechanism broke. Don't ever buy Poulan, it's Chinese junk. By comparison, the Echo is well designed and super easy to operate. July 19, 2016
