Customer Questions & Answers

Is the guard large enough on this trimmer? It seems kind of skimpy in comparison.

Asked by: TMan
Yes, it is large enough to protect the user from objects thrown backward. It's purpose is also to cut the line to the correct length after feeding more line out. Most professional users remove the shield anyway, which isn't good because the line doesn't get trimmed. (Too much line out will harm the engine.) The smaller profile shield gives greater visibility along the sides of the cutting area.

Can this SRM225 be turned on it's side for edging without harming the unit?

Asked by: Anonymous
I have not had a chance to use the SRM-225 yet. But I need it to do trimming and edging. See the Safety Manual, page 30, that came with the SRM-225. Under Operation/Applications, it states "Nylon line heads may be used for trimming, scything, edging, and scalping of grass and light weeds." And it list the SRM plus other models. It states how to hold the SRM while edging and shows a picture of it. Model SRM/PAS/SB (Straight shaft, counter-clockwise line head rotation) - Tilt the cutting head down on the right side (muffler side) while cutting to direct cutting debris away from operator. Feed the line gradually into the material you wish to cut, avoiding contact with fences or other barriers.

12 feet (6 feet on each side) .95 line is the best to use. This is the best self-feeding head I have used in the last 40 years.

Is the handle adjustable? Can a woman use it???

Asked by: Anonymous
There is one thing nobody seemed to mention, If you have SMALL HANDS you will not be able to use the quick feed head. I have this problem. If I want to add new line to the trimmer head I have to take it apart because my hand is too small to apply pressure to both sides of the head at the same time to be able to load the new trimmer line.

2 Cycle 21.2cc Straight Shaft Gas Trimmer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3452.

After using this yesterday... I must say that it is by far, the best weed eater I have ever owned. I've always bought the cheapest I could find and then trashed it when it broke. This time I decided to get a decent machine in hopes that it would help this old man get the work done. Man! This thing is a "BEAST"! It was ready to "rock and roll"! I cleaned up a 200 ft. long creek bed behind our house in 1 hour and 15 minutes. It usually took me about 3 hours before! I only had to bump the line feeder twice and had 1/3 of a tank of gas left. Amazing! The I did the rest of the weed eating in record time as well. If you need a weed eater... this is the ticket! It's also very light and well balanced. Quieter than most too. ECHO model SRM-225, $199.00 at Home Depot. 3,104 reviews with 2,459 being 5 stars! And, I'm about to add another one! I can't believe I'm saying this... but, I actually enjoyed weed eating yesterday, for the first time in my 63 years!!!

I went down to home depot and was pretty set on buying a corded electric or cordless because I wanted to avoid gas, mixing oil, noise, pollution, etc. I purchased a cordless model from another vendor, but I was very disappointed with the run time. It was under 20 minutes. After fooling around with it for a couple hours, I returned it and bought an ECHO 225. I initially didn't want gas, but this thing works so well, I threw my initial requirements out the window. It runs for about an hour at full speed whacking through weeds on a tank of gas. After two solid hours of weed whacking, I was tired but amazed at the area I covered with it. So much more powerful than any corded or cordless weed whacker. It spins counterclockwise, so in terms of throwing debris against your legs, it seems better cutting from left to right. When cutting in that motion, the stuff is throw away from you. But frankly my weeds are so tall, weeds were flying every which way. I would not hesitate to buy this product. If you have a large yard like me (2/3 acre), you'll need something serious like this.

This thing is great cut through 2' tall grass with only a couple of passes without binding up, I love the overall length makes it so much easier on my back, if you are a tall person you will certainly appreciate it, the EZ line reload is also great saves time, this beats my old worn out weedeater trimmer hands down, I only wished instead of spending money on parts for my old one I would have gone ahead a bought this one. ***Note-I have found out the hard way {by having several 2 cycle tools present & past} that spending a little more money on the Pre mixed canned fuel can save yourself a lot of headaches***

I got this today by ordering it online picking it up at the HD. It works great. However, I'd save yourself an hour on how to load the trimming line by watching this video first: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqO3kKZttWc Next, instead of mixing oil and gas I'd recommend using Trufuel. It's a bit expensive, but it's worth it IMO. Home Depot is the cheapest place I've found to buy it. I use the 50:1 mix and a case (6 cans) is $34.99. Lastly, invest in some serious googles—not safety glasses—so debris can't bounce up and get you in the eye. I used the glasses that came with the trimmer and they're not great (although they're better than nothing). The problem is this trimmer throws up a lot of pebbles and dirt when in use. So after a few close calls today I'm buying a pair of Deawalt Safety Google (Model # DPG82-11C Internet #202220499).

After much research online i decided on this unit from Home Depot and will say this is by FAR the best trimmer I have purchased in 35+ years. After trimming approx 1160 Feet x 1 ft wide (paced it off) and 120 ft of 8ft wide ditch I used a little more than half its fuel and bumped the line less than 10 times, plenty of line left. It is very well balanced and does not vibrate your hands off. The trimmer has plenty of power, in my opinion, and is a little quieter than most trimmers. 2 cold starts were used, no problems. Starts very easily when warm. It is not supplied with a strap and the trigger is a little awkward for me. I have only used this trimmer 1 time and sure hope it lasts as long as everyone says it will. I did get the 2 year warranty extension for $25 as I have a terrible track record with trimmers. I average 1 every 2 to 3 years or so. For $224 plus tax I am very happy about this purchase. Hope I'm saying the same thing this time next year. I have not tried restringing it yet.

Best thing I like is that it always starts right up on first try, every time-so far. I have not winterized it due to a very warm winter here (Pike County, Alabama), causing me to use it approximately twice per month this Winter season instead of leaving in shed until Spring. I had previously used other brands (and they were always junk) before settling on this (after researching reviews, etc). I highly recommend this trimmer, based on my own personal experience with it.

No problems with it and haven't changed or replaced a thing. I use this thing weekly as well and does incredible job. If you're looking for a weed eater, go to homedepot quick!! Just make sure you mix your gas right and you'll be okay.
