CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HAPPY ECHO SRM 280UC OWNER NO DOUBT ABOUT IT, I LOVE MY ECHO. HAD IT FOR 7 YEARS WITHOUT ANY PROBLRMS AT ALL. JUST KEEP IT CLEAN AND USE FRESH GAS. MY YARD IS 1 1/2 ACRE AND THE HARNESS LETS ME TRIM FOR HOURS WITHOUT DRAGGING ME DOWN. I'M 63 AND CAN'T SAY ENOUGH GOOD THINGS ABOUT THE LOW VIBRATION, LOW WEIGHT, AND LOW COST OF OWNERSHIP. ONE OF THE BEST INVESTMENTS I'VE MADE IN YEARS. April 29, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by An excellent upgrade! This item is top of the line for Echo. Echo is a well built and easy to service item. In spite of their poor customer service (called about my previous trimmer and never got call back), Echo comes highly recommended by all who use it. I upgraded from a lessor model Ehco trimmer with a curved shaft. This new model has a longer shaft with dual hand grips and hand control. Pros: -long shaft -handlebar style grip (more control and reduced vibration) -better motor = longer string = cuts more weeds -easy to start -does not hesitate in thick grasses -strap clasp (many inferior straps out there and this is a slight upgrade) Cons: -big -bump feed spool (I upgraded to "as seen on tv" model) -strap1(at this price point, you would think there is a pad they could include for shoulder-ala seat belt style) -strap (has a pad for your thigh {bumps against your leg a bit} that is ridiculous-I cut it off and taped pipe wrap/pad{Dear Echo, cut this pad out and include Echo branded, velcro style pad, ala BMX style pad}) NOTE:Cons are minor at best, this item is as close to perfect as it gets. Finally, if you have a small plot this is probably not the trimmer for you. If you are like me with acres, this is the only trimmer you will need. May 1, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Echo SRM - 280s I bought my trimmer almost a year ago and still rocks May 20, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Handles great Easy to use, lightweight, can change the head from string to a blade very quickly and easily. If you're lucky to live in Houston, go to Al's Engines. They recommended this product. Ordered from Echo and received in 2 days. Very knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. It was my mother's day present!! May 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by used as a brush cutter with blade. Cut down weed growth as high as 4feet easily, fitted with the 80 tooth brush blade. The plastic line trimmer head is junk-replaced with aftermarket Echo head which worked wonderfully. February 25, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Accessory issues Switching from stringer to blade is a hassle due to switching the guard and also your quick release of harness from weed eater is cumbersome July 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by srm-280u this unit is light and quite. Way more performance than the other brand i previously owned, which had a larger cc engine. So far the best trimmer i have used. June 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Start We bought this Echo trimmer/brush cutter recently. My husband loved it before he got it out of the box because we have a lot of brush on the periphery of the yard that needs attending. i was skeptical as I do most of the yard upkeep and am very short, have arthritic knees and an old chest injury so, most yard tools don't fit me well or are difficult to manage. This machine is easy to start, if you follow the clear directions provided. I trimmed for about an hour the first time out and, while getting the machine balanced for the operator is a two man operation, once done, the harness really helps ease the physical stress on the operator. I am a 57 year old woman with physical limitations and i would recommend this to others. We will, however, buy the harness shown on-line as the one that came with it is difficult to adjust and not well made. July 5, 2011
