CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12 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 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
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Heavy cutter for heavy brush We needed a brush cutter that was a step up from the usual suburban-grade string trimmers most folks use. We're out in the country where, if it's been a good year for rain, the local wild flora goes nuts. Sweet clover over our heads, wild sunflower, vines, weeds -- you name it. And the occasional tree sapling growing where it shouldn't. The Echo straight shaft 28.1cc cutter was just what we needed, although right from the beginning, we bought a blade and put that on instead of the included string spool. (Fortunately, this particular model came with the blade kit, but you do have to buy the blade itself separately. We got the 3-blade mower-type blade, but are about to switch to a circular one.) Once properly set, it's easy to spend a couple hours just swinging it back and forth to take down the overgrowth. However, I do have to recommend getting the four point harness for this thing, as the shoulder strap is fine for about an hour of cutting, then it starts to bite. On the other hand, for someone as short as I am, I'm having a bit of trouble getting the trimmer to be positioned high enough on my hip. I might need to make some further adjustments. The other problem we had was the instructions for starting the first time seemed somewhat contradictory -- and led to me badly flooding the motor, so that it just wouldn't start. Just pump the carburetor bulb like 3 times max and pull with the choke wide open. If it doesn't start, what they say is to close the choke and keep pulling. But if that doesn't work, you're supposed to start over and reprime the carb. Anyway, luckily, once I figured out the trick, it usually does start now on the first 3-6 pulls, although often it's after I've switched to "closed choke" -- then when it kicks over, I have to re-open the choke for a few seconds to keep it going. My top reason for deducting those ratings on 'Ease of Use' is this: The motor is already somewhat problematic for starting, requiring a bit of coordination. Then they add the fact you have to hold down the handle throttle at the same time you're pulling the starter cord. And holding the whole thing down, but not kneeling on it too hard lest you damage the shaft. Well, that's one too many things to have to do. Anyway, I see this as a design flaw. Meantime, I'll probably find a way to rig up a large rubber band to hold the throttle while I'm starting the motor. However, that all said, once it's started (which, if you do it right, isn't that hard) and get it settled on the harness, be prepared to become a brush cutting machine. I cleared unbelievable amounts of overgrowth quickly and easily. Further advice: If you're cutting serious brush, a pair of safety goggles/glasses alone isn't enough. Get one of those full-on face guards like they sell for chainsawing. I also HIGHLY recommend serious ear protection because the motor is loud. August 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 17in. gas straight-shaft Brush cutter This is an awsome piece of equipment. Iam very satisfied in the way it handles and its very light yet durable. September 8, 2011
