Curious why Echo doesn't show horsepower ratings like some other brands? Regardless of cubic centimeters, I don't want a trimmer less than 1.25 hp

Answer: 
ECHO does not do testing for horsepower ratings because there is no standard between companies or regulations on accuracy of the information that the companies provide. However, the EPA does do testing on all manufacturers for horsepower, torque and emissions. The results of the EPA testing can be found on the EPA website. The results are listed under "Nonroad Small Spark-Ignition Engine Certification Read More

Answer: 
The SRM-265T is designed for use as a trimmer only. However, ECHO does offer a Straight Shaft Edger Attachment (Part number #99944230001) which allows the end used to covert a standard ECHO SRM into a Straight Shaft Edger by replacing the gearbox, shield and cutting head with a straight shaft edger.

Hi PrincessKate,
I'm Travis from The Home Depot. Thanks for visiting our site.
This trimmer will cut in any position, so yes, it will edge. You will need to turn the engine over to accomplish this task, but it is perfectly acceptable to do so. 2-Cycle engines will operate in all 360° of position.
There is no accommodation to turn the head separately from the motor though.
Thank you for Read More

2 Cycle 25.4 cc Straight Shaft Gas Trimmer is rated 4.8 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 EXCELLENT WORKHORSE My 20 year old Echo finally died. This high-torque model is heavier, But I sometimes have to deal with overgrown areas. The 266T is well built and starts easily. It runs smoothly and because of it's higher torque, it doesn't need to run at high rpm in order to keep from bogging down. I'm very pleased with this workhorse and hope it will also give me years of service.
