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

I only buy echo products. They offer fast starting and plenty of power.

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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Earl Very good purchase so far.
Weight is only down fall would be nice if it came with a sling.
