Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FKingPSUCE 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by G1964 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by BelieveInTheMostHigh Excellent & powerful
I owned 4 or 5 cheap weed eaters and decided to go with a better quality unit this time. The last unit I had was a Murray & it was a terrible ordeal when it was warranty time. They told me to go to the authorize repair shop & they said, "it won't be covered under warranty & it will cost more to fix it...yadah, yadah, blah, blah..." Looked online and it was the universal response to others! So, with that said, THANK YOU to Murray and the gang for being horrible because it prompted me to buy this wonderful machine. It feels premium and is powerful. I had to get used to the straight shaft though, but I am learning. A MUST BUY if you are serious about getting through the yard chores without a "cuss word" fest. Oh yeah, one more thing (like Columbo would say), learn how to use the auto string feeder properly and smile each time you do.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RDD Echo SRM String Trimmer
I just moved to a new home with a lot of yard and fence for horses. I have used echo before and new it was up to the task of keeping the grass edges and areas where the mower could not get, cut down. I owned a landscape maintenance business in CA before retiring and moving to OK. Echo was always my choice of trimmers, stick edger, blowers and chain saws. They just run and run and run.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HottyToddy Mississippi Kudzu
Lightweight for a 6'1 180lb man. Long shaft means no bending over and aching back. Cranked up on third pull. About 5 hours this far and this thing mows through kudzu but also is agile enough to work around tight spaces. Seems to burn fuel quickly. Only complaint is you can't fill fuel in the horizontal position.

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.
