Rated 5 out of 5Â by JM57 Built to last
For years I have always bought the cheapest trimmer and figured I'd just replace it every other year or so when it went dead. So finally a local harware parts department guy spent some time discussing the merits of buying into a machine that would last far longer and perform at a higher rate while doing so. Instead of spending $100 every 2-3 years, plus parts, I put down $250+ for the Echo 225SB. If it lasts 20 years thats 12.50 a year versus $33.00 yearly the other way. I am just a regular homeowner, not a landscaper, so it should last me forever. The performance difference is fantastic, like the first time you drive a Vette vs. A VW bug. You won't be disappointed if you purchase this trimmer and you can add on other attachments and make it into many other tools.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by JamesHoff Unhappy with redesign of trimmer head
This is my third Echo String Trimmer, all of which are still in service. I just needed another one, this head design... I do not like and will end up taking this unit back to HOme Depot for a refund. Other than that I love my older units and wish Echo would have just honored my request for and old style head for this unit,customer service told me that they could not do that. 1 Sale returned and 1 negative review... Certainly not what iwould have expected from Echo Corporation. I just hope they do not delete this review.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jericho9MM Exceeds my expectations
I bought this about a month ago and just used it about 4 times, and it really exceeded my expectations. The engine is not as loud as the others, got a lot of power, the attachments are durable (doesn't shake like ryobi and toro), and I can finish the job faster. I like the edger with those big wheels. I always treat my lawn equipment really good and hopefully this will last a lot longer compare to my toro and ryobi, which both only lasted 3 and 2 years respectively.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by RDMK1 Great Product
I bought this a month ago & have used it several times. I have over 3 acres of land with lots of tress. I can usually complete the task with one tank of gas. I love the long straight shaft. It keeps me from having to bend over to reach certain areas. So far, I haven't had any problem starting the weed eater.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Kekee14 Best bang for the buck!
Bought about a month ago after doing some research.Owned a stihl for 13years loved it.But wanted to try something else that's why I bought the echo.Its light and has the power to do what I need.The trimmer started on the second pull,and it ran very smooth.I cut weeds 4 to 5 feet high a lot with 1 inch stalks like they were nothing.Im very happy with my echo and the warranty is one of the best out there.No one else gives you 5 years on a trimmer. My stihl dealer tried to talk me into another stihl but they were heavier and cumbersome .Im satisfied with echo!
