what gauge string do i use for the GT225

the nylon stringers come out of the heads when i weed grass at high speed?

I use LoNoiz .130-Inch-by-150-Foot Spool Commercial Grade Spiral Twist Quiet. It is awesome trimmer line! I use needle nose pliers to remove it from the trimmer head when nit needs replacing, as it is usually tight. But inserting new line is no issue at all!

Is this product worth the money and has anyone had to use the warranty ?

Asked by: Anonymous
Purchased this two years ago. It's easy to use, light weight and starts very easily every time. However last week I noticed some gas leaking. Found that the fuel line to the PCV valve was splitting. The user manual indicates that warranty is for five years including the fuel lines. The manual also indicates that fuel with 10% ethanol is fine. Took it to an authorized service center and they claimed that fuel system not covered by warranty because use with ethanol fuel. My choice was to argue about it or buy the part myself and install. Service center also said 3 week wait for service. Clearly they did not want to handle this, and I couldn't wait 3-weeks, so I bought the 3-hose fuel line assembly for $18 and installed it myself in 10 minutes. This is a great trimmer but you can't depend on the quality or warranty.

Are these trimmers good for edging?

Asked by: Anonymous
no the curved head is difficult to get into position and you will have a hard time keeping string in it that's if you can get it started.

:Having trouble getting the gt-225 curved model started. Thought I followed directions. What could I be doing wrong ?

Asked by: Anonymous
My first unit would not start at all with the starter pack and regular unleaded fuel. Your better off to use a higher grade fuel or a 50:1 premix. I swapped out my first one for another and it started right up. I made sure to do it there at Home Depot so I did not become a traveler of multiple trips.

2 Cycle 21.2cc Curved Shaft Gas Trimmer is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 924.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny Bought this over the weekend after doing some research, wow what a great product, set up is easy and your'e up n running in minutes. Was skeptical atter purchase as I walked out of the store a man was returning the exact same model. It went thru thick weeds with no problems, as many have stated the rapid reloader is a pain, yet I had no problems, stopping to reload lets you crack open a cold one after sweating your bag off. If you'e on the fence about buying this bad boy, just do it!! You wont be disapointed!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OK, but have a pocket full of strig pre cut. I like using the precut string, but they break so quickly that you are constantly going to your pocket for new ones. I use .95 string and it does way better than .80. Starts easy, and has plenty of power for up to almost 1/2 thick weeds if you work at them. This one was a big step down for me in motor size, the curved shaft, and giving up string feed (but that is another nightmare). We have an acre and I grow grass on about 1/3rd, the back 2/3's needs a lot of attention, and I'm hoping this unit is up to the task from a longevity position.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This thing is garbage I purchased one to do some simple cleanup around my backyard and this product was a COMPLETE disappointment. Seems like the engine has too much torque to keep the line blades on the trimmer. I found myself constantly having to Put the pre cut sections of line back in the head. This thing is a total waste of money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rapid-Loader™ I love my Echo product as I have in the past, that I bought a newer one. I thought I did the right thing by buying this new easy quick string loader, the rapid-loader. Come to find out there is a lot of waste of the nylon cord and time to reload. I find it to be very wasteful and time consuming! if you add the little pieces that are left on the head, you would find that it is not cost effective, not to mention the time to stop, pull out the ends and discard, then refit the new pieces. I rather have the spool, fill it and forget it about it! this head should't have even been made, not environment friendly, and costly to the consumer

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute satisfaction!! I am 80 years old and still take care of my 10 acres. This is the FIRST weed-eater I have ever had that was easy to start, easy to reload string and light enough to weed-eat around all of my Crepe Myrtles. I have about 100 . Love the weedeater.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far, so good I have a few ECHO products that I am very happy with. I own a mid-sized chainsaw that gets much abuse and it hangs right in there. I also have a small backpack blower that is probably my most reliable piece of yard equipment. So when it came time to replace an old weed trimmer, I chose the ECHO 225. I've only had it for about a week but so far it meets my expectations. The first thing that I did notice is that the line is thin and week. If you do any strenuous trimming at all, the line is pretty useless. I did discover however that this head will take a heavier line. That seems to have solved this problem for me. It starts very easily and runs well. I am pleased with it so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WORST STRING HEAD EVER I love the trimmer except for the piece of junk string head that came with it. Doing very basic trimming on my front lawn, I had to shut it down about every 90 seconds to replace the broken strings. I purchased the speed feed bump head to replace the original. Knowing how bad the original head was , I would have purchased a different model with the speed feed head. I sort of feel ripped off, having to replace a part on a new trimmer. The 2 cycle engine starts easy and runs well and the machine feels well balanced. I recommend buy Echo but not with not with the rapid loader head.
