Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jaxson 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!!

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.

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.

This was a fantastic purchase for me, was disappointed with other gas trimmers and went to electric weed eaters. Has some success with them but did not give me the all in all quality a gas trimmer offered. Echo gave me what I needed and excellent service. I would recommend this product for anyone to use, It is the Cadillac of gas trimmers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NTxan 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!

The Echo straight shaft gas trimmer was easy to use for cutting the shrubs around the lawn.
