Questions & Answers

Is this product worth the money and has anyone had to use the warranty ?

Asked by: TC
I had to use the warranty and was (surprise) the carb was not covered and HomeDepot offered to fix it for $103.00. Don't hold your breath on them honoring it.

what gauge string do i use for the GT225

the nylon stringers come out of the heads when i weed grass at high speed?
Asked by: tv George
I use LoNoiz .130-Inch-by-150-Foot Spool Commercial Grade Spiral Twist Quiet. It is awesome trimmer line! I use needle nose pliers to remove it from the trimmer head when nit needs replacing, as it is usually tight. But inserting new line is no issue at all!

:Having trouble getting the gt-225 curved model started. Thought I followed directions. What could I be doing wrong ?

Asked by: Timm
Honestly, Echo has a single “how too” start your trimmer every time. 1-Turn starter plug to on. 2- Prime the unit using air bulb 10x 3-Hold Handle throttle with choke in cold start 8 times in sequence together simeotaneouly. 4- Place choke to run position while holding handle throttle down and pull start again up to 8 times. Usually I get the engine going on 2nd or 3rd pull from my number 4 sequence every time. My Echo throttle runs without head turning if my hand stays off hand throttle. I give that up to Echo, and the use of the 50:1 ratio premixed gas mixture. Happy Summer to all!

Are these trimmers good for edging?

Asked by: Dc
no the curved head is difficult to get into position and you will have a hard time keeping string in it that's if you can get it started.

2 Cycle 21.2 cc Curved Shaft Gas Trimmer is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 1388.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great choice for the price We use ours to trim a semi-rural, acre lake lot. This Echo starts easily, hot or cold, is very easy to handle (I’m 5’8”, and the straight shaft trimmers are a bit long for me), and with a quick spritz from the hose after use, looks like new after a year of use. We bought from a mom and pop Echo dealer (do this if you can: better service, will test run equipment and educate you, and they’ll happily make adjustments on the spot, and maybe even throw in some line with purchase). Had them change out the potentially troublesome (seemed like it was malfunctioning at the store!) continuous feed head for their traditional one (rapid load?), where you clip a couple sections of line and quickly feed it by hand. It will take round, durable .095 line, but it’s a tight fit and you lose a little top speed rpm...the next smaller size is probably better suited for the unit, but you’ll stop to swap in new pieces of trimmer line a little more often. Now that the unit is broken in, it may need a slight idle speed or carburetor adjustment (idles just a little too fast, so trimmer head takes a long time to stop completely), but I’ll just take a 10 minute drive to the local Echo dealer who’s more than happy to sort it out, on the spot. For the price, I’m happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy start up. Easy to use. My old echo finally gave out after ten years of home use. I used my GT-225 as soon as I returned home with it. I like the way it trims my yard and the ease of using this trimmer. I really like the easy load line. Hopefully this one will last me for another ten years. Also like the 5 year warranty that comes with this trimmer. Echo has not let me down yet. Why change to another brand when you know the quality of what you already had.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great trimmer, one small issue! I bought the GT-225 about two months ago. Really good quality, as I expected from Echo. After several times using it, it was time for new trimmer line. One side locked in on the line just fine, however the other side did not. It would fly off as soon as the engine was started. I contacted Echo support and they are shipping me a new mechanism for the trimmer head. Should be a quick fix.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little Trimmer I got sold on Echo last year after replacing my chainsaw with their brand. A leaf blower later, I bought this trimmer. After returning my original purchase that was obviously used, returned and put back on the shelf for new, I couldn't be more satisfied. Easy start, light, easy start, quiet, easy start. I actually like the trimmer head. I have a small yard but but detailed yard and once I got the hang of it, one change is all I needed. I did go to .095 line which made a big difference. I think you will be happy with it for a small to medium size yards. Just check everything you buy from Home Depot closely before you purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Trimmer Head Faulty! I have been through a lit of trimmer line. It doesn't always stay in, it doesn't last long I can go about 8' feet and if I am lucky maybe 15'. One side will throw the line out from time to time and then I can't feed the new line in unless I use something to poke at it and a little bit of trapped line comes out. The engine so far, only used it 3 times is great but I am ready to go back to my old Craftsman that leaks oil all the time! Echo dump this trimmer head! You should replace it and send a replacement to all that bought this. It is wasteful on the line and it takes more time to trim my yard than it does to mow it.

Easy set up and functioned properly the first time of use. Can't assign a 5-star rating as the curved shaft design can make it awkward and uncomfortable to line up to sidewalk and driveway edges. More bending over than I wanted. I would probably have been more satisfied with the straight shaft unit that is about $50 more. My 'gut' told me to go with the longer straight-shaft model, since I had just retired a similar Echo curved-shaft unit that caused me the same discomfort. Nevertheless, Echo is a very reliable product and is the reason I stay with the brand.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rapidly Fill yard with orange Garbage The Rapid load head on this machine is garbage. Must buy the bump feed for another $30 if you intend to use this like a gas trimmer (by that i mean moving some dirt, not just knocking the yellow dreadlocks off of dandySnoopLions). If you want a light duty trimmer buy a battery unit, some of them are great now. Kind of wish I bought the heavy duty Ryobi or Makita after doing the math, and fighting with this garbage "rapidly clutter your yard with 3 inch pieces of orange plastic" string trimmer head-ache. Engine is great, unit is fairly solid, head is garbage, and replacement head is not as simple as it should be to replace. It involves right and left hand treads just as a FYI to future buyers. Overall, would still recommend but buy the bump feed and keep the other head as a backup.
