Questions & Answers

does it have a saw blade

At one time I had a weed wacker (gas) with a saw blade that coould be attached for trimming branches and stalks. Does this product do that?
Asked by: tom
It does not have it with it but you can get a brush cutter kit for it that will come with the blade strap and other hardware. I think the kit sells for around $50 to $75 if i remember correctly. Here is the part number for that kit 99944200418 from Echos web sight. Hope this helps

What is the shaft size - interested in adding a Brush Blender attachment to it and it needs a 1 inch shaft
Asked by: Sharon
The SRM280T has an arbor size requirement of 20mm! A 25mm (1inch) arbor sized attachment will not work except on higher-end ECHO gas trimmer models!

With the higher torque how much less of a cutting speed will I get? How dirty if a cut will it make compared to a 21.1c

Asked by: Spenc
Higher torque translates into a more "powerful" cut. Even at a lower speed it will still "plow" through heavy material where lower torque/higher RPM models would be bogged down! The loss in speed means that when dealing with predominantly fine textured grasses will not get as "neat" of a cut. Although I find it totally satisfactory! Otherwise a higher torque slightly lower RPM cutting does a much better job in all other situations! If you are using a gas trimmer for your well-maintained lawn area the SRM280T may be over-kill! Go with a higher RPM model. Be cautious about lower end models by ECHO depending upon your needs. I had a not so good experience because I thought I was saving money while lowering my criteria for functionality!

2 Cycle 28.1 cc Straight Shaft Gas Trimmer is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 67.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Underpowered and overpriced Unit appears well made. Doesn't have enough power for the .095 line it is shipped with. I replaced with .080 and it works better. Primer bulb is on bottom of carb. really unhandy.

The only reason why I bought this is because my dad needs a powerful grass trimmer for our garden. The problem isn't exactly the price, it's how much inconvenience it was for me. First, it's only available in the States, so I had to pick it up over the border. Second, since it's well over $200, I had to pay taxes at the border. Third, no matter how many times I rev up the engine, it won't start up even when I follow the instructions. I'm going to get this hunk of junk examined. Depending on what the people at Home Depot say, I'll have this refunded. It was not worth the stress.

My first Echo trimmer is an SRM-210 which is about 10 years old and still runs but the unit was having trouble with the thick weeds at the new property. Selected the SRM-280T (high torque) to get more power and the unit has the option to attach brush cutter blades. Rated only 4 stars since first unit that was delivered did not start (no spark). Returned bad unit to nearest store and reordered a second unit to be delivered. This unit works as advertised and cuts through the thick weeds without any problems so I don't plan to order any of the attachments. Only have a few hours of operation on the unit so can't comment on reloading the trimmer line yet. If this unit holds up like my SRM-210 it will be worth the hefty price.

When I finally received this product, after delays in delivery, it worked for a grand total of 15 minutes before the motor seized. Because the nearest Home Depot with a repair department was so backed up, it took a week to diagnose that it needed a new motor. After a month of waiting for diagnosis, shipping, repair, etc., I had the trimmer back and got back to work. This time it worked for about an hour before the "speed feed" head malfunctioned, and it spewed all the factory-installed trimmer line out of the head into a tangled mess. I spent the time to untangle and try to start over with new line, but with the same result. Returned it to the store, and went back to my little cheap Craftsman.

I switched to .080 and that works better. I wouldn't buy this model again. It is overpriced for the power it has. Does a really poor job of trimming with the .095 line. Primer bulb is on the bottom of the carb. couldn't have put it in a more unhandy place.
