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

It's really, really simple - far more simple than any other trimmer I have used. Here's how you do it:
1. Remove any old line
2. Pull out a 10' length of new line
3. Carefully feed the line through the eyelet on one side of the head, *straight through*, so it comes out the other side. (NOTE: You do NOT have to remove the head, open it, or anything else.)
4. Wind the head backwards as to pull the line Read More

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 304 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very Pleased Just picked this up on the 3rd of Sept, 2016. Took it home and started the reading as I normally do with most of my new tool purchases, just to be on the safe side. Made sure everything was in the box that is suppose to come with it. Everything was accounted for. I read this little beast prefers 89 octane fuel so off I went to get it with the advised 10% ethanol. Fueling presented no issues, meaning no leaks. A 2.6oz bottle of 2 cycle oil comes with your purchase in the box. I primed the bulb 8 times as instructed, set the choke and squeezed the throttle, as instructed. On the 4th pull she fired up. Turned off the choke and I let her warm up a couple minutes. She purred the whole time, meaning no stutter. Well off I went to the yard. This baby did everything I asked her to do at half throttle. I can only imagine what it will do at full throttle. If you are cutting around small trees or small samplings, this will cut them down at full throttle, I'm quite sure. It will surely debark your tree. I chose the Echo SRM230 over another Husky due to the fact my Husky just froze up on me and it was only 7yrs old. Very pleased so far with the Echo. Very smooth running light and the power, amazing. I'll write again after I use it the rest of the summer here in Michigan. Warranty is very good, just don't forget to register your new weed killer. If it would have come with a harness, I would have gave 5 stars. September 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Commercial Trimmer I love this trimmer it's amazing how much power is in a lightweight package. I am a professional landscaper and would recommend it it to any professional or homeowner alike. Great price and plenty of power to cut through the thickest of grass and light underbrush. It's also great on gas I have done two yards with heavy weed eating on one tank of gas more cutting less refueling. May 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Trimmer!!! I have had an Echo trimmer before and absolutely loved it. This trimmer is the best one I have used! I will never use a different brand! It made short work of thick grass 2 feet tall, I got almost the whole 3/4 acre done in just under 2 hrs. Stop reading and go to the store and get this trimmer!!! August 14, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by best for money I cut 1.68 acres mostly riverbank. Wore out 2 ryobi weedeaters in 2 years. just bought this and it's great. cuts through tough wet grass well. Hands don't hurt after using. pretty light to carry. we will see in two years how good it is. May 2, 2016
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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy start I love how easy it starts and how smooth it runs. Throttle response is good and has decent power. I would like the overall balance to be better. The cutting head needs to be heavier. It is too light and is easily jolted from the cutting position. The string spool doesn't hold enough string and has to be refilled too frequently. Reliability was what I was looking for when I purchased this unit. I love the 5 year warranty. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT product!!! Had it for a couple months now & love it! Has started every time without a problem! Has plenty of power and is balanced very well. This thing is very well built and I think it will last a very long time. I will seriously look into other Echo products!!! September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Echo SRM 230 line trimmer Just finished weed eating the lawn with my recent purchase, completed in half the time as my last trimmer. I think I'll trim everyone in the neighborhood, I'm very pleased with this one. Wouldn't hesitate a moment to purchase any of their products, you shouldn't either. September 4, 2016
