All listed model, SRM-266, SRM-266S and SRM-266T feature the same engine displacement and performance, 25.4 cc engine. The SRM-266S features a solid steel driveshaft that improves acceleration and reduces the weight. The SRM-266T features 50% more torque at the gear case.

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

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.

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

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 23 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This tool is awesome for big yards. I love Echo products. This one is just as good as the other. I'm not pleased about being forced into a California compliant model, but ok. The unit starts right up and has the power to get through the ground cover I have here. In addition the bump line feed works great and the balance of the unit prevents fatigue. It is a great tool. December 24, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Garden Of Eden Start up is hard. Even going through the steps several times, tool takes a while to cold start. If you've ever had to trim with scissors, then you will know that anytime something with power is used, it's faster. If you've ever had to pull weeds out down to the last bit of root, you will like just cutting the top off with this power tool. It's better to just dig the whole weed out if you have the extra time. So buy a shovel too, even if you don't want to. If you ever have had to mow grass, you will like to use this, to trim the edges for a professional look. You're on your way to becoming better than average August 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is 1 awesome trimmer!!! Like the title says, I purchased this trimmer online and had it shipped to the store. My wife picked it up and got it home. I also had her pick up some Echo power blend fuel as well. Filled it up, primered it 7X , flipped the choke pulled it twice and it wwanted to fire. Flipped choke to run and on 1st pull she fired up and idled like a dream! This is what you need to do for 1st start up. I went and did some light trimming just to break it in nicely. Now I only primer it 3X for cold start and no issues. Now on to why I purchased this model. My old unit T.B. stopped running, I tried to fix but to no avail. So being I have a Echo blower that has been absolutely fantastic, I decided to get a Echo trimmer. I went on Echos website and watched the videos. I decided that the SRM-266S was for me. The larger 25.4cc engine and shaft drive will perform smooth with perfection, in which it does. For residential homeowner use it may be slight overkill, but I know I'll never have any shortage of power. If your not sure if the SRM-230 is enough power, for about $50 more get this or the SRM-266T and you'll be glad you did. My only gripe is the sliding on /off button. Wish it had a momentary switch, but I'm splitting hairs here. Love the machine! Don't over think it, spend little more and get one you'll be pleased. July 31, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to start if you know how I have the 280T model and it absolutely rips, instant torque. Mine always starts on the third pull even when not used for 6 months. Here is how: unscrew the gas cap a bit to release any vacuum; prime well; choke ON; toggle trottle1-2; Crank 1-3, not more than 3x. You should hear an engine cough at this point. Choke OFF, primer, screw gas cap tight. Put pinky on trottle and toggle as you crank 1-2 times. Should start easy. Overall I only crank 3-4 times for an easy start every time. The trick seems to be to release the gas tank vacuum, and to not overcrank with choke on, then toggle trottle as you crank. June 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A great string trimmer The motor purred like a kitten...very smooth, powerful, idled well, never died, and easy to start. It cut through high, tough weeds and grass nicely. Seems like a very high quality machine. A little less costly than the Stil product, but still a little costly...you probably get what you pay for, however. It would be nice, if a shoulder strap was included for long cut jobs. September 16, 2015
