Customer Questions & Answers

Can this model be used as an edger for flower beds, etc...? Can the head be rotated to turn into an edger?

Asked by: PrincessKate
Yes, this model does cut an edge pretty well. The trimmer can be rotated in order to cut a horizonal edge along walks or flower beds.

difference between Echo 266 / 266S and 266T String trimmers

Every craftsman, and Homelite gardening tool I have is gradually getting replaced by ECHO! My string trimmer, Homelite ST175 just died, and I'm looking at Echo for a replacement. Can someone please detail the difference between Echo 266, Echo 266S, and Echo 266T?
Asked by: john
The 266 has a cable drive. The 266S is the same but use a shaft drive. The 266T is a cable drive but has more torque than the 266 and 266s.

echo srm 266t

does this trimmer come with the high capacity speed feed head. echos website says that is standard on this model but in the description it just says bump and feed head.
Asked by: Anonymous
I don't know if it's considered high capacity, but the string lasts a very long time without advancing or adding new line. The bump feed seems to work well, but one time it did get stuck, and I had to drop the spool down to free the line where it would bump feed again.

2 Cycle 25.4 cc Straight Shaft Gas Trimmer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 28.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from New fan! Years ago I had a straight shaft Craftsman trimmer that actually lasted me for quite a while. I decided to purchase a good brand and went with a curved shaft Stihl. After about 3 years of using that and cussing it every time I used it, I decided to go back to a straight shaft and see what else is out there. I'm pretty serious about researching items (just ask my wife) and in the end decided on the Echo SRM-266S and I couldn't be happier. It fires right up and handles amazing! I just also upgraded my chainsaw and bought and echo. Great products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wanted an Echo quality product..... and got it! I wanted a quality line trimmer to replace a Ryobi model that wasn't running reliably. With doing research didn't like that many trimmers use a cable linkage between the engine and the head - the cables require maintenance. Have had good experiences with Echo and tend to spend a bit more to get a higher model as it pays in the end. Liked this model due to the solid shaft instead of a cable drive. Used it for a few weeks and starts very well, looks well designed, line trimmer head design is interesting and is easy to reload with line. Only small criticism is the weight of the unit but it seems proportional to the extra power this unit has. Would buy again and would recommend to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful tool for precise trimming This SRM-266T is the second one I have purchased. The first one I owned for a mowing business and I sold the trimmer as part of a package deal. I've been kicking myself ever since. So when I moved to an acreage and needed a trimmer I definitely bought one of these again. It starts very easily using the procedure in the manual. It has plenty of power and doesn't bog down when trimming. Other trimmers I've used would scalp because the trimmer would bog, slow down and let the line droop, but I've never had that problem with this Echo. It has a powerful engine and it has a larger gearbox at the trimmer head, allowing a higher torque gear ratio which keeps the line from slowing down even in thicker grass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product but I should buy the multi tool I found to late that the same engine was available on multi-tools. Then I bought the multi-tool with the attachment hedge trimmer and the extension.
