Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 49 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Echo quality I have owned this tool for many years and have had no problems. Starts easy and is very simple design to restring the cutting cord. July 2, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best weed whacker I have ever owned Excellent weed whacker with the exception of the dual string trimmer head. It pops apart and parts go flying while trimming for no reason. July 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Trimmer The trimmer works great. I did have an issue with the harness missing an attachment ring. Echo sent the missing part for free. April 21, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best trimmer ever! Upgraded my SRM-225 because I own a small lawn service. Wow what a difference! Like all my other Echos it starts in no more than 3 pulls, has tons of power while being super efficient, and is so comfortable. I put on a high capacity speed feed head and just trimmed 3 foot tall grass with no bog down and I didn't even get dirty! Stick with the best, stick with Echo! April 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Trimmer! I purchased this trimmer for standard grass trimming around my 3 acre yard, but also for the occasional brush removal from our wooded areas. That's why I also got the torque model. I purchased 2 metal cutting blades along with the blade accessory package. All of these work great! I am having no issues what so ever. I am glad to have spent a few extra dollars and made these jobs an easier one. At my age any help is appreciated. July 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome! The trimmer works great. Starts right away and the power is incredible. When going thru thick or tall weeds it cuts them down with ease. June 12, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Trimmer Very powerful; rips through the toughest jobs easily. A bit loud and drinks the gas, but very good tool. March 20, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Serious weed wacker This unit has the power to handle any task. It handles heavy grass, thick weeds and light brush easily. I highly recommend using all the safety equipment; safety glasses, ear protection, long pants. I have needed all these to safely use this unit. July 22, 2014
