I want a GT-230 with the new Speedfeed 400 head like on the Echo website so how do I find out if you are selling the new version with the new head since this is an "online order only product:"?

Answer: 
That is the only way Echo manufactures the GT-230 now, is with the SF 400 trimmer head. It is possible HD has the new versions but they may still have the GT-230 with the older heads if they have not sold all of them yet. You will need to inquire with your local HD.

Answer: 
A 50:1 ratio with 89 Octane fuel can be used in all ECHO 2-stroke equipment, provided the oil is ISO-L-EGD and JASO M345 FD certified. ISO-L-EGD and JASO M345 FD oil must be used with a mid-grade (89 octane) or premium gasoline in all 1997 and newer engines.
A 50:1 Ratio = 1 US Gal. 89 Octane + 2.6 fl. oz. ECHO POWER BLEND OIL

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rock Solid and Lite My first Echo purchase. I've owned a Stihl before... a decent trimmer... but our local shop carries Echo, so I gave one a test drive and I bought it. I believe in buying local. My entire spine is busted up from a bad motorcycle accident, so my arms are weaker than most and a task like weed-eating is a chore. This Echo Trimmer is super easy to start and it is lite, and I adore the 5 year warranty! I also like the extended shaft length, too. And the build quality is simple and effective; another plus. I will be telling my family and friends to stop buying the "dime store" trimmers and buy an Echo and be done with it... August 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome trimmer This is my 2nd Echo my first had to be replaced after about 10 years but only because my kid didn't close the tailgate on his truck and it bounced out. I love the easy feed cutting line I always hated those tap n go ones they never worked. This baby has plenty of power and always starts within a couple pulls June 15, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by angry johnny approved 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. April 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GT - 230 An awesome weed eater! Very happy an impressed with the performance of the GT - 230. July 12, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nice product, loosy string system The unit is great but the system for string replacement is a major pain. Cap does not come off/on easily, nor turn easily. September 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Echo always good good product,nice people to deal with, have had a number of echo products, will buy them again June 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lots of power i bought this weed eater about a month ago and I am so very pleased with the product. November 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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'' November 9, 2011
