Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gkw Only one small flaw
I had to lightly file the end of the blower coupling, else it wouldn't slide into the shaft. Otherwise very happy (so far).

I love this trimmer. I was previously using an electric one and this one is so much better. This brand was highly recommended to me by multiple people and I can see why.

Bought the Echo Pro Attachment Series for $299.00 plus tax and free shipping. Great product for the price. I have purchased many Echo products over the years and have never been disappointed. Great equipment and great warranty!

I purchased this gas trimmer w blower attachment to replace a 18v battery trimmer. The power the Echo trimmers provides reduces the time trimming by over 50% and the blower by over 40%. Quality products that work as designed and are reliable.

Upgraded from an electric trimmer to the Echo 17 IN. 21.2 CC GAS. More than enough juice to do my half acre. Turns upside down easily for sidewalks, weight and balance are nice. I don't need the edger attachment although the packaging was misleading. I thought I was getting the trimmer, blower and edger for 300. Upon further review it's clear what I was getting but the picture threw me off. That said, you don't need it just put on your goggles and turn her over. Fine tool for smaller lots and larger, noise is appropriate it doesn't sound like a chainsaw in your ear. It looks cool in my garage when not in use. The Blower is better than I thought it would be. My first mixed fuel tool and it's super easy, instructions are good.

I bought this to replace 10 yr old trimmer. I am happy overall with the trimmer it has good power for trimming. I have one huge complaint with the unit, it is very very noisy. So noisy it is obnoxious I would take it back but there is no customer satisfaction warranty. I still give it 5 stars because this may not bother other people and it is my personal gripe. I am also disappointed in the dealer where I purchased it because he never told me there was a more powerful model. I would have purchased the 280 if I had visited this site first. I also heard the bigger motor and it must have a bigger muffler because it is quieter than this one. They had a regular trimmer with the big motor and that is the one I heard before buying this one. I figured if the bigger motor was acceptable to me the small motor would be even better, boy was I ever wrong. This is loud even with hearing protection on.
Enough complaining, the motor starts very easy, much easier than the manual leads you to believe. Mine when cold takes no more than 3 pulls and the pulls are easy to perform. After warmed it starts first pull if I do not follow instructions in the manual. All it takes after warm up is pull the cord once without giving it any throttle. Following the instruction book makes it take more pulls than when it is cold.
the quality appears to be very good and it should last long beyond the warranty period. I will be selling this one and getting the 280 as soon as I can find a buyer.
