Customer Questions & Answers

Can this SRM225 be turned on it's side for edging without harming the unit?

Asked by: Anonymous
I have not had a chance to use the SRM-225 yet. But I need it to do trimming and edging. See the Safety Manual, page 30, that came with the SRM-225. Under Operation/Applications, it states "Nylon line heads may be used for trimming, scything, edging, and scalping of grass and light weeds." And it list the SRM plus other models. It states how to hold the SRM while edging and shows a picture of it. Model SRM/PAS/SB (Straight shaft, counter-clockwise line head rotation) - Tilt the cutting head down on the right side (muffler side) while cutting to direct cutting debris away from operator. Feed the line gradually into the material you wish to cut, avoiding contact with fences or other barriers.

Is the guard large enough on this trimmer? It seems kind of skimpy in comparison.

Asked by: TMan
It's a smaller guard than any other trimmer I've had. For me it causes the most problem when the string is in a vertical plane rather than the horizontal shown in the picture above. It might be a neat improvement to have an adjustable shield composed of 2 or 3 overlapping sections that could be fanned in or out to make it narrower or wider.

Is the handle adjustable? Can a woman use it???

Asked by: Anonymous
There is one thing nobody seemed to mention, If you have SMALL HANDS you will not be able to use the quick feed head. I have this problem. If I want to add new line to the trimmer head I have to take it apart because my hand is too small to apply pressure to both sides of the head at the same time to be able to load the new trimmer line.

Customer Reviews

ECHO 2 Cycle 21.2cc Straight Shaft Gas Trimmer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 2955.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Trimmer head defect Took about three hours to finally figure out why when the trimmer head was tapped to the ground the line would "re-tract " rather than release more line. The head was assembled from the manufacturer backwards. The "quick" line install would only turn CCW but not CW as the manual instructs. I removed the head, took out brass nut and turned plastic gear upside down and now it works. Line will now quick install and will now release more line when tapped to ground. Frustrated that had to waste 3 hours but at least it now works. I suspect mine is not the only one with head assembly defect. Hope this helps someone with similar issue.

After owning CRAFTSMAN seedeater and hardly ever getting it started, I finally took a leap of faith and went shopping. I heard a lot of good things about ECHO and decided to take that leap of faith and buy one. I got it home, unpacked it, fill the tank with recommended gas and started the seedeater up. Surprisingly, it start within 8 pulls. I let it idle for 30 minutes to break it in. Afterwards, the seedeater performed as it should have. I have had absolutely no trouble with it and I am a happy customer. I highly recommend any ECHO products and especially the weedeater I recently purchased. No more CRAFTSMAN gas driven weedeaters again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FANTASTIC WEED AND BRUSH CUTTER I purchased the optional blade kit with shoulder harness. I could not believe how this Echo SRM-225 cut through the thick brush and ferns, I installed the blade kit before i ever used the unit, so the grass string trimmer pieces are brand new. This is the best investment i could have made. Starts right up, Idles very smooth, Balances perfectly on the shoulder harness. The instructions even showed me how to sharpen the blade myself with a flat file. SUPER MACHINE!!! And a 5 year warranty, I am very happy with my ECHO

Best thing I like is that it always starts right up on first try, every time-so far. I have not winterized it due to a very warm winter here (Pike County, Alabama), causing me to use it approximately twice per month this Winter season instead of leaving in shed until Spring. I had previously used other brands (and they were always junk) before settling on this (after researching reviews, etc). I highly recommend this trimmer, based on my own personal experience with it.

I read the reviews around this trimmer and found several that stated it had a hard time starting up. However, I found that was not the case with my trimmer. It started right up and ran like a champ. There is plenty of power to the trimmer to tackle all the high grass with ease. While the trimmer does rotate counter clockwise, I found this was an easy adjustment (just go in the opposite direction than you're used to). The spooling was not bad either. The auto-feed mechanism is flawless. The trimmer is not too heavy and the shaft is plenty long enough. My only complaint would be the debris's rather small. However, my overall impression of this trimmer is a 5 star. I highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro grade I was using another "consumer-grade" trimmer. It did the job but had it's annoying issues. THIS TRIMMER THOUGH. Starts right up, stays on, feeds easy, RELOADS INCREDIBLY QUICK AND EASY, takes .95 line, very powerful (I don't even need to have the throttle fully depressed to make clean cuts). I love this thing. When I'm done edging and trimming my lawn, I get bummed that I have no more use for it and just go hang it up in the shed haha. I stand a whopping 5'9" and find it to be comfortable. Little tip: the trimmer cuts way easier if you follow the direction of the arrow on the shield whenever you are cutting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Echo SRM-225 gas trimmer st shaft Waited till it went on sale. Big mistake not getting it sooner just to save $20. Great trimmer with rave reviews. Starts great, wide cutting path, plenty of power, line reloading so easy you don't realize it, I am not tall and the straight shaft is easier to use than curved shaft. I researched many brands, stores & models and settled on the SRM-225 due to the over 2,000 great reviews. Have never seen that many great reviews on a product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute BEAST!! I did many reviews and ended up buying this model. Right out of the box it started right up. No adjusts to be made to carburetor like some . I have a large yard that was over grown badly because I was waiting for old Craftsman trimmer to be fixed. It was gonna cost more to fix then it was worth, so I went and picked this up today 6/4/16. I was skeptical on the smaller engine. Don't be, this thing took down everything I put it through, and only used 2/3 of a tank of gas. And it never once loaded up the head with tall grass wrapped around it that I would normally have to stop and clear off it. The 21.2cc engine is very powerful. You won't be disappointed with this purchase.
