Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JD OK so far
Starts easily, gas fill is pretty easy. Plenty of power, even for ferns and tall weeds... rev it up and go. bump feed works OK. Reloading string is a bit tough... getting the canister open is a bit challenging to the thumbs. The instruction book has no info about which way to insert the string canister, if you have to remove it... that happens when the "already loaded" reel needs to be removed to re-thread the string through the proper hole. Pretty well balanced... even when using any optional strap assembly. Be careful to align the latch pin, if you remove and replace any of the various attachments, it may not "pop in" all by itself.... check that the pin is seated..

It's durable and long enough to avoid bending when using

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 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 Tony Echo always great!
Echo products are great! Bought it because of the detachable options available. I have another one for just weed eating.
