This is my third Echo trimmer . I did not even consider another brand when replacing my old Echo trimmer(which was 18 years old and still running).) I am sold on Echo. Thanks for making such s great machine!

Im 6 2 so the extra length is perfect for me. last weekend i cut the tall grass and weeds behind my fence and this thing powered right through all of it no problem. its light weight starts right up does the lawn and moderate brush. i might go to heavier line next refill as i have in the past. the bump string head works well. the handle is good not excellent. echo products are well made, and i can recommend the gt 230. i have owned several others i would not.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Elhomeowner good quality, confortable for the shorter user
Powerful unit , i'd like to see a soft grip added that the straight shaft has on this higher 230 unit due to vibration that most homeowners will encounter in their holding hand after a short time of usage. Also the straight shaft has a fatter bump on the bottom that allows for a smoother 'ride'. However I chose to buy the curved shaft for i find it easier to use for my shorter height 5'5''

Rated 4 out of 5Â by LadyDi My Hubby Really Wanted This
For Fathers Day, my hubby went thru all kinds of info to find the "right" trimmer & picked this to b the best one, which he thinks is right.....BUT found that the line doesn't work well where he was working, so he bought a 3-plastic head to tackle the hard weeds he's trying to cut. Now, we'll see.
