can I get a blade for the Echo SRM 230?

Asked by: Anonymous
You can add a brush blade to the srm 230 sp but I don't see that option for the srm 230.

can you get an edging blade attachment for the Echo 2 cycle 22.8 cc grass trimmer? This product for $289 at Home Depot.

Asked by: Anonymous
The 230 and 230sp both say no to attachments. But you can add a brush blade to the head of the srm 230 sp.

2-Cycle 22.8cc Straight Shaft Gas Trimmer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 340.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Trimmer with lots of power. I have owned this trimmer for about a month and used it extensively on a large property with heavy use. Pros: Starts easily, revs up quickly, lots of power, and easy to handle and control. Trimmer head is super easy to re-load. Cons: Trimmer head fell off the third time I used it, however it was easy to re-attach. Seems like the trimmer head was not properly tightened at the factory. The last time I used the trimmer, both sides of the line broke off close to the head. I needed to remove the head to re-load the line. In my opinion the weakest part of this trimmer is the head. I'll probably need to replace the standard head with a different head that will hold up better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent As a child growing up in the late 70's early 80's, my father bought an early model trimmer. Now take in mind it was a beginning for what has now become. The advancements of Echo products across the board in there motors are exponential. Easy start, slowly breaking in the motor for the first hour of use was effortless. Action of the trimmer exceptional. General maintenance is key (read manual). Very happy with overall performance, and I shall continue to invest in Echo products and suggest them to those seeking quality maintenance equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Machine!!! I have had this weed wacker for 6 years now and I absolutely love it. I didn't use it at all last year, because I was promoted and went to nights, so I didn't spend much time taking care of the lawn beyond simply mowing it. So needless to say I was worried when my wife told me she was going to start weed wacking this past weekend. I was at work and she told me it fired right up after sitting for at least a year. She ran it for over an hour without any issue. Just a great product from Echo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stop reviewing, and go buy it!!! If you are anything like me, you spend a lot of time researching and reviewing products prior to buying. Well, I'll save you some time... Stop it and go buy this trimmer. After fighting with my 1 acre of grass with my previous trimmer, I had to look into another trimmer to save my back and my time. I had a 28cc prior, and I have to say that this 22.8cc trimmer out performs the larger one that I had by far. Right out of the box, this thing started with three pulls, and took down huge weeds with out a problem. The speed feed head also saves a lot of time in line replacement. So, stop looking at reviews and go out and buy this awesome Echo trimmer. You will not regret it..

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Striped set screw I've been using the trimmer few the past few weeks and I'm happy with the performance, runs great starts easy, and has plenty of power. Now comes the bad part, the trimmer came with a striped set screw on the gear box, the only reason I know this is because it was slightly out of line and I went to adjust it the screw was completely striped. It gets better, when I called echo USA they referred me to a repair center "weingards" and refused to send me the part personally. My new trimmer was tied up for 10 days and when I got it back I had the same issue, the head was slightly off, just a few degrees, and the repair center striped the same screw or never replaced it? It's only the set screw and I'm still using the unit as of right now, but I'm not sure what to do next, it's it a quality issue, and should I just return the trimmer?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long-lasting, but alas, after 10+ years... I love my SRM-230 weed wacker, but I do believe that after 10+ years, it has finally reached the end of its life. I have replaced numerous little items over the past 3 years (even bought a new weed wacker that was quickly returned because it did not compare) and it will no longer start, even after replacing the little things (filters, tubes, spark plug) again. I do not believe it is worth bringing it to the shop for repair after all it has been through countless hours over at least the last 10 years. I have babied this thing to the point, that NO ONE is allowed to use it, because it truly has been the easiest and most consistent to use. I am sad and will probably shed a few tears. I am quite nervous about purchasing another due to it being hard to compete with perfection that is the SRM-230. You can't go wrong with this machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best trimmer available !!!! After trying many other brands I have to say this is the best !!!! Great power to weight ratio, I do on average 2 hours of trimming every week, between my home and my camp. It is light enough to carry for extended periods without a strap. And the power is unbelievable never had any problems cutting grass to waist high weeds. Combine this with the black Echo trimmer line and one awesome weed thrashing machine !!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect until... I was in the process of rebuilding my 230 when last weekend some jack thief broke into my barn and stole both it and my prize srm 210. Both had lasted through 3 deployments and 5 years of hard work maintaining fencelines, around barns etc and now they're gone. Thank you Echo for making such dependable trimmers that last . Hopefully when I can afford it I will get another 210 or upgrade to a 280t or s.
