No, if it is for home use you got 5 years, but if you are a professional and use it commercially then the warranty would be for 2 years.

Answer: 
That's a matter of opinion, I personally like the flex cable, for the simple reason that it absorbs more of the back tork from the string head. They are also pretty tough, in all of the years of use ( with the ECHO ) I never had nay problems with them. I haven't with the shaft ether, but the shaft seems to rob the engine of power a little.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 68 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by String breaks every few feet, have to take apart head Just bought this for simple grass trimming in my yard; Trimmer runs great and feels good but factory installed string broke on one side after a few feet of trimming. Head is not made to be taken apart every few minutes; bought new roll of recommended string, installed per manual and had same results. Have spent 95% of my time reinstalling string. Will be taking it back tomorrow. June 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Everything I expected The packaging was excellent, easy to open and minimal debris to get rid of after opening. I just added the gas mix and it started right up and went to work. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The 266 is a topnotch trimmer The 266 is a reliable strong running tall grass tool that will help open a new garden or save an old one. Thanks to this tool i can see my property again! June 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2010 PAS 265 BOUGHT A PAS 265 WEEDEATER USED FROM MY LOCAL DEALER LANGS OUTDOOR POWER EQUIP MARIETTA OHIO. BOUGHT IT BACK IN MARCH 2013 AND HAVE USED IT EVER SINCE . IT HAS BEEN A GREAT TRIMMER AND HAS WORKED OUT GREAT AROUND MY HOUSE AND HELPING A NEIGHBOR WITH SOME RIVER PROPERTY HE OWNS THIS WEEDEATER CAN HANDLE VERY TALL WEEDS AND THICK BRUSH . I ALWAYS BUY THE ECHO .105 STRING IT IS ALL I USE . I ALSO USE THIS WEEDEATER WHERE I HUNT AT TO CLEAR BRUSH IN THE FALL . THIS PAS 265 IS A 2010 MODEL AND RUNS GREAT. THEN LAST THURSDAY I CALLED MY LOCAL DEALER TO SEE IF THEY HAD ANY USED WEEDEASTERS AND HE SAID HE ONLY HAD ONE A ECHO SRM 280 SO I TOLD THEM TO PUT A TAG ON IT AND I WOULD GET IT. NOW I BOUGHT THIS TO TAKE AND USE AT MY CAMPER BEING I HAVE MOWING JOBS THEIR ALSO . May 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best trimmer I've used Got this trimmer about 4 months ago, I knew echo was a great brand but this trimmer is really awesome. Easy to start, more than enough power and that speed feed head is perfect. If I had to choose again it would be an easy choice getting this trimmer again June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Strong Weed eater / Trimmer This trimmer is a beast, I cut the guard at the bevel, removed the line cutting blade ( to let the line advance to a wider cut ) this allows the trimmer to cut smoother at a lower RPM on the engine. This motor notices no strain at all, it performs as well or better than my 280T. The only thing I don't like about it is it meets California emissions, which means no carb adjustments, yea that's right no High or Low speed jet adjustments. To tell you the truth I have logged several hundred hours on my other Echo weed eaters with out making any adjustments. March 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love my Echo trimmer! So for the past year I have been looking into purchasing a new trimmer. I own 8.33 acres, only two of which I mow. The other portions of my land is divided between an acre field and the rest is heavily wooded with paths leading to deer stands. So after reading every review I could come across and speaking to every "old timer" who has been there and done that I decided upon an Echo, specifically the SRM-266. Prior to purchasing this trimmer I have used electric trimmers which unless you have a 10x10 foot yard they are worthless. I have also purchased cheap one hundred dollars trimmers all of which I was very disappointed with. I purchased this model both on my own decision per reviews and specifications and also upon the recommendation of Echo support. So day one I got this thing home and could not wait to get to work. First impressions on this trimmer was how well balanced it was while using it. Taking into consideration the length of it and when I initially picked up it seemed heavy. The trimmer was easy to use and felt good in the hand. Start up was easy and after priming the engine it started up in I think 4 pulls! Needless to say I was impressed already. The engine took a minute to warm up and the initial torque appeared a bit soft, but after a few moments the engine caught up and off I went!! Through various types of grass ranging from two inches to nearly 14-18 inches high this trimmer melted through it with ease. My very first day using the trimmer I ran it for three and a half hours and two tanks of gas. All and all I am very pleased with the ease of use, balance, power and performance of this product. I even used this trimmer to clear out a patch of thick forest grass in order to place my compost ben behind my barn. In this area I have never mowed it and the grass and plants were very thick. I had no issues. Over all I would recommend this trimmer to the home owner who wants a professional grade product due to owning large amount of land or just wanting a product that doesn't lack power like every trimmer I have ever purchased from a box store etc.. So to cut to the chase I would buy this trimmer time and time again with no hesitation and what is not to love about a five year manufacture warranty! Best in the business for a reason. Thanks Echo from one very happy home owner! May 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Commercial quality I purchased another brand string trimmer, after using it one time I returned it at once very disappointed. Very satisfied with my new purchase, I am sure it will last for years. May 7, 2016
