Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 247 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent trimmer Excellent trimmer, easy to start. Only time it would not start was when I put diesel in it by accident. Emptied tank and refilled with mixed gas and it fired right up. I feel some hand fatigue after 10-15 minutes use, but I attribute that to my Carpal Tunnel syndrome. July 24, 2009
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Echo srm-230 I purchased this trimmer in the end of 2014 and now I have had this for half the year. it's a great trimmer it starts on the 1st or 2nd pull. It cuts through very thick grass then right about now the engine has been failing so I troubleshooted and it came to the most simple thing it needed new gas. The gas it was 2 years old with no stablelizer. So that's it thank you for reading my review June 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Echo always!! I am big fan of the Echo products. I have used the SRM225 in past years and now have upgraded to the SRM230. there is a noticeable difference, the trimming head does not get jammed up with tall weeds as much and the cutting power is better than the SRM225. it seems to me my cutting time is less than before, and I am always in knee to waists high weeds. you will not be disappointed with this machine. the only con I have is the metal housing gets pretty hot and when I lean my elbow on the housing (which I do a lot) it stings. I am thinking of adding some insulation/ padding to the area to correct this. October 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy starting This model is light once you figure out how to wrap the spool it's easy after that and comes off the spool without a problem. It's powerful November 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GRRREAT TRIMMER We bought our ECHO SRM-230 trimmer in august 2015 and we believe it is the best we have used in many, many years. Our neighbor bought one a week later. We also bought an ECHO chainsaw and love it too! November 12, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by srm-230 This is my second echo trimmer and the performance and reliability and feel is quality highly recommend November 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This trimmer stays in BEAST mode! I have had this trimmer for about 4 years now. Never a blade of grass it couldn't handle easily. I needed a brushcutter and bought the attachment and it was like I had a whole other machine. I started with the echo 8 points knife blade. It took down almost any thing it touched. The saplings above an inch were just to much. It would cut them, but due to the limitations made by having such a small cutting area, you would have to bump it several times. I then put on a 26 tooth saw blade and began cutting small pines trees with ease. Several of them were 4 to 5 inches in diameter and almost all cut straight through in one pass. With a little finesse trees 6 to 8 inches in diameter would fall just as easily. I spent nearly 3 hours clearing part of my dear lease and got done with 3 times the work than what I thought I would have done. To top that off, I only used 3 quarters of a tank of fuel!! Its impressive as a string trimmer, because you know that's what it is for. No grass is too thick. Put a saw blade on it and you will be awestruck at what this machine can actually do. You can finally see the raw power this 12lb unit has. I would normally be opposed to using something with this small of displacement for a heavy duty clearing job, but this is the only one ill grab when its time to clear next year. Was doing it with a Stihl fs 110r. It performed well with the 31cc engine. I thought there was no way 22.8 could even come close to keeping up. I was dead wrong!!! If you need a trimmer that can do double duty as a brush clearing saw, this one is it!!! You MOST DEFINITLY will NOT be disappointed November 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool I bought this SRM 230 Because I had An ECHO Weed wacker For 20 Years. It finally died On me. The new unit I can use the same attachments That I had for the old units November 8, 2015
