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

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 60 reviewers.
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
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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Trimmer for Tall Grass and Brushcutting The pros: The SRM 280T is the ideal weed eater for users who want to tackle tall grass, vines, and even rose bushes. The trimmer has more than ample power, and never even pretends to bog down even in waist high grass. The speed feed head is essentially perfect and I bet that every other decent brand is trying to mimic it. The head is simple to load (almost to the point where you question whether you are doing it right), it dispenses line with a light bump, and it almost never wraps itself in tall weeds like other brands that I have had (stihl, craftsman, and even an older echo). Furthermore, the design of the trimmer is clearly to provide comfort for the user. The rubberized plastic grips on both the throttle and grip are soft in the hand, and the trimmer cranks with minimal pulling (so much so that my 55 year old mom can start it). The cons: The biggest reason that I’m not giving the SRM 280T 5 stars is that it doesn’t cut lawn grass evenly, and that it is heavier than many other trimmers I have used. The if you are buying the trimmer with the goal of keeping a well-manicured lawn the SRM 280T is not for you, but I would however recommend a smaller echo trimmer. Everything I have ever owned produced by echo is top of the line and this trimmer was no different. May 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SRM 280T trimmer Best weed trimmer i've ever used, i would buy another one. May 18, 2016
