Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Will The BEST trimmer I have ever owned
I have owned the other "orange" trimmer for several years. The carb had to be changed out every year because it was hard to start, even with alcohol-free gas. This Echo unit starts so easily my wife can start it. There is so much power that the engine is run barely above idle to trim most grass. I love the balance of the unit. Now looking to change all my lawn equipment over to Echo.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nottirble Met my expectations
As a "mechanically challenged" person, I expected to encounter difficulties changing out the components of this item, and especially with changing the trimmer line. This was not the case. Very easy and simple to switch out components (I.e., trimmer, edger, blower) and changing line was easy. I pulled out and restrung the line that came with it just to find out. A piece of cake! I also like being able to use the heavier .095 trimmer line, since my previous electric trimmers would only use the smaller trimmer line, which did not last long and was tedious to put in new line. The weight is more than my previous electric trimmer, but not too heavy. In short, so far I like it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robeva77 Powerful
This is one of the entry level commercial duty trimmers, it is powerful and makes short work of any trimming that needs to be done, but it is also very heavy and has a small safety shield and it kicks back the cut grass to the rear, so be prepared to be covered in the grass that you are trimming.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveS Echo is the best!
I got tired of hard to start weed eaters. I've had a echo backpack blower for 18 years and have never had a problem with it starting. I decided enough is enough and bought an echo weedeater. It has absolutely impressed me of how easy it starts how quiet it is and how powerful it is. I can't believe I waited this long to buy one.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Unhappycustomer Will not accept non echo attachments I have
One of the selling points was being able to use attachments. I have an edger, tiller and brush blade attachment I wanted to be able to keep using. NONE of them will fit this weed eater . The packaging clearly stated it would accept attachments from other manufactures. This is not true. If you have attachments not made by echo do not buy this product. My attachments are ryobi, craftsmen and John Deere.
As a weed eater it has worked very well.
