I have a 14" Echo chainsaw that I have had and continue to love, for many years. It has ALWAYS started when I need it. I have gone thru three "other" brand weed trimmers in that time.

QUESTION: Is the gas/oil mix the SAME between Echo trimmers and chainsaws?

Answer: 
A 50:1 ratio with 89 Octane fuel can be used in all ECHO 2-stroke equipment, provided the oil is ISO-L-EGD and JASO M345 FD certified. ISO-L-EGD and JASO M345 FD oil must be used with a mid-grade (89 octane) or premium gasoline in all 1997 and newer engines. A 50:1 Ratio = 1 US Gal. 89 Octane + 2.6 fl. oz. ECHO Power Blend Oil.

Answer: 
I believe that they all would be since they are all from the same manufacturer. It would be easy to make sure by checking the item out on line or when you are at the store just check the info on the box or ask an employee in that dept.

Answer: 
50-1mix use either one of those small oil containers in lawn and garden add that to 1 gallon fresh gas or you could buy the echo pre-mixed container of fuel and oil. Nice trimmer very fuel efficient. If your local gas has a lot of ethanol buy the echo gas/oil can won't gum up the carb. Good Luck

2 Cycle 21.2cc Straight Shaft Gas Trimmer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 2924.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro grade I was using another "consumer-grade" trimmer. It did the job but had it's annoying issues. THIS TRIMMER THOUGH. Starts right up, stays on, feeds easy, RELOADS INCREDIBLY QUICK AND EASY, takes .95 line, very powerful (I don't even need to have the throttle fully depressed to make clean cuts). I love this thing. When I'm done edging and trimming my lawn, I get bummed that I have no more use for it and just go hang it up in the shed haha. I stand a whopping 5'9" and find it to be comfortable. Little tip: the trimmer cuts way easier if you follow the direction of the arrow on the shield whenever you are cutting.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Trimmer head defect Took about three hours to finally figure out why when the trimmer head was tapped to the ground the line would "re-tract " rather than release more line. The head was assembled from the manufacturer backwards. The "quick" line install would only turn CCW but not CW as the manual instructs. I removed the head, took out brass nut and turned plastic gear upside down and now it works. Line will now quick install and will now release more line when tapped to ground. Frustrated that had to waste 3 hours but at least it now works. I suspect mine is not the only one with head assembly defect. Hope this helps someone with similar issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Trimmer!! I picked up this trimmer based on my prior experiences with Echo products. I had a lawn service in Florida for 6 years and only used Echo products. They always worked great and hardly ever had any issues. I had 3 crews with two line trimmers running all day long on all 3 crews (for a total of 6 line trimmers). I didn't have to replace any of them but every 2 years. This trimmer could handle commercial work if necessary but is designed for residential and should stick to residential. It has a great power to weight ratio to get the job done without wearing you out. I love this trimmer!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very Impressed I am very pleased with this Echo Trimmer model # SRM-225, it is a very powerful trimmer and more than adequate for my purpose. I will be only using this trimmer around my house and I can honestly say that it is just as powerful as the FS 250 Sthil Trimmers I use at work. I love how easy it is to start and the speed feed head works great!!! I am very impressed with this product from Echo I would highly recommend this product to any home owner in the market for a new Trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 7 yrs on...still flawless! I purchased the 225 in Aug 09. I've used it religiously week in and week out all season, every season for the last 7 years. In N. Tx to boot, thats March thru mid Nov. This trimmer is simply awesome! All I've done to it is retrofit to the speed feed head the newer 225s come with. Its great, and has surpassed all expectations! I'd recommend to anyone looking and buy another myself if I ever manange to kill this near indestructible piece of equipment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased! My son used the trimmer the other day and was impressed with the way the trimmer handled and that the construction modified the chance of receiving a burn from the hot motor. My soon to be daughter-in- law used it also and was impressed that it didn't weigh as much as other gas trimmers but performed very well if not better that others she had used in the past. Very happy with purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC WEED AND BRUSH CUTTER I purchased the optional blade kit with shoulder harness. I could not believe how this Echo SRM-225 cut through the thick brush and ferns, I installed the blade kit before i ever used the unit, so the grass string trimmer pieces are brand new. This is the best investment i could have made. Starts right up, Idles very smooth, Balances perfectly on the shoulder harness. The instructions even showed me how to sharpen the blade myself with a flat file. SUPER MACHINE!!! And a 5 year warranty, I am very happy with my ECHO

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed with the SRM-225 trimmer. Light, powerful, easy to use. I have had the SRM-225 for about 2 weeks now and have used it about 3 hours total, but my early impressions are VERY good. I was going to spend the extra for the 225i, but my local HD didn't have it on the shelf, so I went with the "plain" 225. The i30 system makes it VERY easy to start and I don't see where the extra money for the "i" model would be justified. The 225 seems to be very fuel efficient. I trim my 2 acres on a single tank of fuel. It had quite a bit of torque and easily cuts through weeds and light brush. The trimmer is relatively light IMO and well balanced. I can hold it with one hand and trim when I need the extra reach. I was also surprised by the lack of vibration. I don't have a single regret buying the SRM-225 and I would recommend it without hesitation.
