Rated 4 out of 5Â by Jspringky Great edger.
Bought this model after reading the less than positive reviews on the less expensive Echo model (issues with power and clogging in the plastic housing). This unit performs as advertised and is a perfect addition to my Echo trimmer. Expensive model, but worth it in the long run. Highly recommend...

Rated 5 out of 5Â by alshanchar Worth the extra money
When you get right down to it this edger is probably worth the extra money over the standard model.
The metal shield the higher power with good vibration mounts. I think in the long run this machine will outlast me.

I bought this edger in 2007 and it's still running flawlessly!
This machine has it all and performs way beyond expectations . . . and I expected a LOT at this price point.
The aluminum shield broke on my unit, but the machine still cuts through ANYTHING. I wiil order a replacement shield very shortly as this thing kicks dirt all over you without it. ;-)
You cannot go wrong buying this edger - they got it right!

Living on a large corner lot with thick St. Augustine and previously owning a 3Hp edger I was concerned that a stick would do the job. I already own an Echo 225 trimmer so I knew the brand is top quality. Besides every lawn service in the area uses them, I figured they have to last. I bought the bigger model mainly for the metal blade guard after reading the reviews about the plastic guard clogging. I could definitely see that happening with that design. I am glad that the metal guard only comes on the bigger sized engine since it still bogs down a bit if you have overgrown sidewalks, but recovers well and gets the job done. My overall edging time has been reduced and I am absolutely positive I made the right choice in buying the bigger unit. The only negative is the clutch assembly gets hot enough that you want to hold it with arms extended and that takes some time to get used to the additional fatigue. This is my third Echo product purchased over the last 5 years. I'm an Echo guy for life.
