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

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 63 reviewers.
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 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
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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Turns backward This is a serious, well-built machine, meant for heavy duty commercial use. The engine starts easily, the cutting head re-strings easily. Potential buyers should be aware that, for a right-handed operator, the string head rotates backwards. The head tends to throw clippings and debris back in the face of the operator. For this reason, this trimmer gets a four star rating, not a five. August 5, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AWESOME Trimmer!!!! I bought this trimmer after my Ryobi went down. I had it delivered to my home, got it out of the box and it was preassembled! Filled it with fuel, primed it, pulled three times, and it was off to trimming. This machine has all the power you could ask for and more. Tackles all the tough weeds without hesitation! Very torquey as well!! I am very pleased with all aspects of this trimmer. Starts right up now with two pulls, and the pulls take little effort!! I don't even need to prime the bulb unless I run it completely out of fuel. Just pull it once on choke, and pull it once more off choke, and we are off!! I've never looked back since!! From now on, Echo it will be!!! SUPER HAPPY!!!!! September 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Trimmer Worth every penny. High quality, easy to start and handle. I own a 1/2 acre mountain property with spring grasses and weeds. My other brand trimmer didnt last one year. The Echo works exactly as advertised. This trimmer trims heavy grass and weeds with on a tank and a half of gas and less that one spool of line. April 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great power and torque My old McCullough 2510 finally died, so the hunt was on. I knew echo was my next brand and research led me to the 266T. Has tons of power and torque to trim the taller grasses and weeds. Nothing seems to bog it down. Great machine and am glad I purchased it. June 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Value and built to last! Purchased this high torque trimmer 45 days ago and it has provided flawless operation. The I30 starting system provides easy starting. June 5, 2016
