what size weed eater line does the $200 echo need because i read the manual and it said .85 and .95 so which one would it be?

Asked by: cody
The SRM-266 can take line size .080-.155 depending on the cutting head that is being used. The SRM-225 comes standard with .095 line. and the head can take line sizes .080-.105.

2-Cycle 25.4 cc Straight Shaft Gas Trimmer California Compliant-DISCONTINUED is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 113.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality! I have always purchased less expensive trimmers and decided to spend a little more to get something that would last longer than one season. I was impressed by the Echo warranty so I bought the SRM 266. Its only been a month, but I've been very impressed with this trimmer, it starts easily and will cut through anything with ease. I also love the easy and fast loading of the line. It used to take me several minutes to wind it by hand and get frustrated when I let my fingers slip and had to start over. This trimmer is a little heavier, but it's utility is ten times better than anything I've used before. I would highly recommend purchasing this product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really makes life easier! This is my second echo string trimmer. I "upgraded" from a 225 for my lawn business. I could not believe how much easier it made my edging. Great feel, powerful, and the speed feed head is amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful After a little over a month and some serious weed eating I am truly pleased with the 266. My old trimmer you would have to hold wide open to cut the same weeds I'm doing now at half throttle. More torque. And you're not penalized with more weight. The 266 weoghts about the same as my old John Deere ( which was gifted to my niece) and is still in use. Love the speed feed trimmer head. It allows you to in stall fresh line in no time. Can fault this trimmer on any thing. Does exactly what I what. Easy starting too. Brand new and started on the third pull.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A real power house I bought this unit a month ago primarily for my hunting camp. I currently own a curved shaft GT model (I have had this one for 7 years) never a problem. I ran the SRM-266 for over 3 hour one day with a brush cutter attachment. The weeds 2 to 3 feet tall and this machine made short work of it. The machine is a little heavy and with the brush cutter the vibration increased slightly. But, compared to previous trimmer a Homelite there is no comparison. The Echo is a great machine! The Homelite was nothing but problems and something was always breaking.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average I bought this a month ago and had to return it because the throttle stuck and it started shutting off. I still Have my old echo trimmer and I loved it..... only bought a new one because the throttle cable needs replaced however I'm not nearly as impressed with the new model. I'm 5'8" tall and it seems like my arm is always getting to close to the hot exhaust..... seems like there should be a way to either cover, deflect, or reroute the exhaust. I also think the handle placed is for taller people.... how about a fast locking quick adjusting handle.... finally I don't feel like starting it is as easy as what you promote.... just my opinion.... it's pretty pricy for what it is especially when comparing it to my older one which I've had for over a decade and ran flawlessly....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong, Efficient, Balanced.... Perfect!!! I have had this trimmer for just about a month now. This trimmer cuts thru just about anything like butter. Doesn't bog down in tall thick grass like my Troybuilt that I bought when we first moved in. Also bought this to put a blade on to cut down saplings and small trees. My guy at Weingartz recommended this Echo trimmer over the Stihl but he said either brand is great. He recommended due to he has had this trimmer for 30 years. If you spend the little extra money for this model you will. It be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to start, Easy to reload line I bought the SRM-266 about 3 weeks ago. The trimmer was very easy to start and runs very well. Like most string trimmers, trimming along a chain link fence tends to use the line quicker then normal trimming. I found it was very easy to reload new line on the spool. It sure beats trying to wind the line on the old style trimmer heads. The one down fall of the unit is Echo does not include the attachment point for a strap/harness on the trimmer. I will have to buy the shoulder strap kit to get the attachment point. Then I have to remove the cutting head/transmission and handle on the shaft to get the attachment point positioned properly. The omission of the attachment point along with the need to disassemble the unit to add the attachment point is the only reason for not rating it 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT TRIMMER I had a Ryobi x430 which is the worst machine I ever ever bought!!! So I bought the SRM266 8/5/2017 and I used it the next day. I kept doing my research on trimmers either STIHL or ECHO trimmer. Echo got me on their Warranty of 5 years which Stihl only has 2, but Stihl are great as well. This machine is very quite and definitely has power. Follow the instructions on how to start it and had no issues. Once I used and got warmed up I took breaks when cutting and when I started it, it took one pull and love how quite the motor is when idle!! I will see after this year to see if it keeps the same power and start up. I truly recommend to anyone wanting a trimmer. I hear a lot of the SRM-230 model that is another great trimmer, but Home Depot did not have it, I so went with SRM-266 definitely happy!
