Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MBurke 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MilwGuy Nice unit
Only used the unit twice, but so far so good. Have to get used to the straight shaft - it extends the length of the trimmer and makes it a little harder to use for a short guy like me (5'9"). While it allows me to reach out somewhat further, the typical close-up trimming takes some getting used to with the longer shaft. Had to return the first unit because it began leaking grease at the trimmer head before I ever used it. But Home Depot exchanged it without an issue and the second unit has been great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Silvertank 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.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by campingbeacher worked good for only 2 seasons
Used for 2 summers after that engine was bogging down replaced carb thought ethanol maybe affected it. Ran ok for about week with new carb and started bogging down again. Replaced fuel lines and primer bubble still runs like garbage. I have a $70 weedeater trimmer that is 9 years old and never gave me a problem this thing is a true piece of garbage!!!!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GeeWhiz Great trimmer!
This is the first trimmer I have ever purchased, and I have been very pleased with the quality and operability of the product. Easy to start, easy to use. I am very glad that I elected to purchase the
Echo Trimmer, and would recommend it to anyone who needs a quality trimmer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ctandc Stop looking. Stop buying cheap trimmers and get this one
I have a pretty good sized lot (almost an acre). I had a cheap Weedeater brand trimmer than I kept running each year. Finally it was just worn out. I always thought it did an okay job, but heck I paid under $100 for it back in '07 or so. Tried the new Dewalt cordless 20V trimmer. 2 uses, stopped working, dropped it off at the closest service center (100 miles away) took them TWO MONTHS to repair - it was Winter when I got it back. Tried to break it out last month, and SAME THING. Barely ran - battery tested good. Read reviews, looked around and finally bit the bullet on the Echo, since it was in stock down the street and I wanted to get the yard done.
WHAT A DIFFERENCE a good trimmer makes. Fired right up, idled smooth and CUTS like NOBODY'S business. Worth every penny. Just buy it.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Roberto1167 Just brought it home, won't start
Complete junk. Bought it brand new. Followed the 'Quick Start' directions to a tee. Even used Echo's premium 50:1 fuel. Never even came close to starting. I understand that a piece of equipment like this is hard to do a quality control start up at the factory, because you'll most likely leave fuel residue behind. But something has to be done to ensure that the thing works before a customer spends a couple hundred dollars on the thing. Headed back to the store now...where I won't be getting another Echo product.
