Questions & Answers

what is the difference between the 266 and the 280?

Asked by: gator69
The two attachments that the 280 CANNOT use are the hedge trimmers. I am glad I looked it up before I purchased the 280. Now I will go with the 266. Here is the attachment compatibility chart from Echo. http://www.echo-usa.com/Products/Pro-Attachment-Series/PAS-Compatibility-Chart.pdf

Do all attachments fit this power source (ie pruner, articulating hedge trimmer, brush cutter, & string trimmer)?

Asked by: charlie
The 280 is not compatible with either hedge trimmer attachment :( http://www.echo-usa.com/Products/Pro-Attachment-Series/PAS-Compatibility-Chart.pdf

Why dose it say I can't use the pole saw and hedge trimmer with the 280?

Asked by: RAC111
Haven't seen where it states the pole saw cannot be used. However, both hedge trimmers are not compatible. http://www.echo-usa.com/Products/Pro-Attachment-Series/PAS-Compatibility-Chart.pdf

Which two attachments does the pas 280 not except?

The pas 266 excepts all the attachments, and the pas 280 only excepts 14. Which 2 will not work with the pas 280?
Asked by: ken
The two hedge trimmer attachments. This was a deal breaker for me. http://www.echo-usa.com/Products/Pro-Attachment-Series/PAS-Compatibility-Chart.pdf

40 in. 28.1cc Gas PAS Power Source is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from ProPaddle Attachment I live on a long country road and after a long winter, there is gravel and crushed stone in the grass along the entire road. At age 63, I was tired of raking all of this material which took several days. With the ProPaddle attachment, it took about two hours. This is a wonderful took and clears down to the grass. I have attached a video which shows the ground totally covered with rocks and it is cleaned down to the grass in one sweeping motion. The attachment is heavy. However, it is used on the ground. I allow the paddles own motion to place it in the proper position for the next sweep (its sweeping action moves the paddle backwards). It is not necessary to lift the paddle. I am delighted with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What A Powerhouse! I bought this unit a little over a year ago to replace my PAS 225. This machine is very powerful and runs all my attachments to their highest potential. I absolutely recommend Echo to anyone looking for reliable and quality made equipment. As a previous owner of their German competitor equipment for years, I can tell you I've had much more reliable service from my Echo equipment.

I did have a hard time starting it after I ran it out of gas the first time. Pushed the primer ball as recommended in the instructions and flooded it although I let it set for a day and it started right up the next day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality and Performance All In One! I have been using power attachment sources like this for years while working as a forest service volunteer. Unfortunately I spent many hundreds of dollars on cheaper (non Echo) units from big box stores. All were junk. I upgraded first to an Echo PAS 266 and recently added an Echo PAS 280. Should have done this YEARS ago and saved a lot of money! Both units are highly productive and powerful. The PAS 280 allows me to cut through much longer stands of brush than ever before. It works flawlessly and with full power up to my highest elevation of 5000'. The high capacity fuel tank also allows longer cut times between refills. I don't know why it took me so long to finally make this move!
