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 4.7 out of 5 by 2605 reviewers.
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 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
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Echo SRM225 is an Absolute Animal Folks, No joke here with this machine.. In the past I bought a 4 cycle Toro that was nearly $400.00 Used it twice it was such a piece of junk, Never ran right from the get go, gave that one away to good will. For the past two years used a electric powered Ryobi in which was enough power for what I needed, but the Auto feed was a joke. So much so I will never buy Ryobi again. Bought the Echo from Home Depot after extensive research... Bang!!!! It is Sick! More than I need but starts every time and I can get most all of my trimming done with a few bumps of the head... Perfect Line feed System, bar none. (4) bars in the ease of use category is only because its a bit difficult for me because of its weight. It is not terrible but I prefer lighter trimmers. I guess we cannot have it all. Fantastic Tool!!!! July 9, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DO NOT BUY I purchased one which never could get it to start. I purchased the oil/fuel mixture recommended to me by the store manager. I returned this one; the tool rental associates tried to start it and they told me it was the oil/gas mixture, he said all the refunds on this machine were from the same fuel. I got a refund and got another one (same model). I was told to use the oil that came with it and a gallon of fuel. So I went home and it started with no problem but it was turning off every once in a while. 2 weeks later, the weed eater would not start again, same fuel used as before. did everything by the book. Took it back for a refund. I have never had so much problems with a machine like i had with this one. June 26, 2016
