Answer: 
The gear reduction is the difference between engine speeds, and the attachment speeds. Gear reduction ratios are used when the high engine speeds need to be converted to lower speed torque. Torque referred to the twisting motion of the attachment which is used needed to drive the attachment under load.

Answer: 
The SRM-280T and SRM-280 feature the same engine displacement and performance. The SRM-280T has a high torque gear case that will provide 50% more torque at the cutting head. The advantage to the 50% more torque is the engine will not be put under as heavy of a load in demanding applications. The SRM-280 does not have the extra torque, but it has a faster head speed.

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

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 65 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing Machine! What a pleasant surprise to get to work and have the trimmer do all of the hard stuff. I was able to dig out old growth from around cemetery stones without hardly any effort from me. The power of this echo trimmer is outstanding. I am a big fan of Echo and am happy that Home Depot carries such a fine product. Almost perfect. The slight con is with the style of head. The string head is a little difficult to access and does not close completely without some strong force. I'll be reverting to an older style for familiarity and comfort. July 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excllent Trimmer I made the switch to Echo with the purchase of the PAS kit about 7 years ago at a smaller home - for the last 2 years the same kit has helped me manage my 1/4 acre lot beautifully, but it was time to upgrade. I ended up going with this trimmer and could not say better things about it. The speed loading of line is great, the engine starts easily and powers through thick weeds, and i especially like how when idling the head does not spin. My only grip would be it has more vibration than the PAS it replaced, but I expected that given the larger engine. I bought the matching edger as well and am just as happy. Worth the extra money by far. Be sure to register! September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Top of the line! Runs like a dream! Great buy. Will never go with any other brand July 30, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Weed Eater The best weed eater I have ever used. Would highly recommend this product. May 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by powerful edger I wanted a machine that could both edge and clear,this does it . A great product. September 22, 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 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
