Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ArkansasBob Excellent trimmer!
I have always used echo in the past when I had a mowing service and loved them . I recently started my lawn care business back up after being out of the business for a little over 10 years. I started out with other equipment and they work ok but not quite to the level I expect from my equipment so I ordered the srm 28 and could not be happier! The machine starts easy has more than enough power to do any task you might ask of it and it runs so smooth! I would recommend it to anyone looking for a trimmer

This product is a beast I Have noticed as well thought it drinks a lot of gas I would say as as much as twice the 266 I have you can hear the power difference in the motor. You can fell the power in the trigger when cutting though weeds. You can easy cut thick weeds. If you have a lot of land to clear or do landscaping buy this its amazing.

This is literally the most expensive piece of garbage i have ever wasted my money on. Most of the time time its under repair, not functional. Has never once just started right up, there's always some little game you have to play with it, tilt it on its side to start it, the pull starter gets stuck, have to CONSTANTLY spray carb cleaner in it and baby the fuel system... Not to mention MOST of the original parts wear out WAY too fast for a $400 piece of equipment, i have already spent over $100 on replacement parts for this piece of junk in the two years ive owned it. Unacceptable if you ask me

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by HDis2 Junk - Echo is no longer a quality brand.
This is a huge waste of money! The machine has not run properly since it was purchased.
To top it all off, the poorly trained staff at the Fleming Island store 6369 says over the phone that they will give me store credit to replace it and upon arrival, they refuse. They shouldn't promise something they won't commit to.
This waste of $400 and the overall experience with Home Depot has surely made me a Lowes customer.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Guest So far, so good.
I've only used it a couple of times so far but it has performed well. It's fairly well balanced and has plenty of power. It also seems more fuel efficient than any trimmer I've used. If it lasts well and continues to perform as it does now, I'll be a happy customer.

Initially I'm generally pleased with the trimmer. It is pricey compared to similar trimmers. I purchased based on the name hoping to get a longer life. Not real happy with how difficult it is to get it started. Get ready to make a few pulls before it starts. Once running...no problems. BUT...it isn't very responsive to the throttle pull. There seems to be a delay when throttling up so don't expect a crisp throttle response. It doesn't seem to be a problem for performance....just seems sluggish. Still performs fine. The "bump" line delivery system works well. It is somewhat of a hassle to load because you have to measure out a very long section of line, then feed it halfway through the feeder, then turn it until it is loaded inside. Like I said...a little bit cumbersome, but does an excellent job of feeding the line and lasts a good long time before needing to be refilled.
