Questions & Answers

Is the guard large enough on this trimmer? It seems kind of skimpy in comparison.

Asked by: TMan
It may seem small, but after trimming my 1/4 acre hillside I was covered with substantially less debris than my old curved shaft Homelite. I think it's adequate.

Is the handle adjustable? Can a woman use it???

Asked by: Stanlena
There is one thing nobody seemed to mention, If you have SMALL HANDS you will not be able to use the quick feed head. I have this problem. If I want to add new line to the trimmer head I have to take it apart because my hand is too small to apply pressure to both sides of the head at the same time to be able to load the new trimmer line.

2 Cycle 21.2 cc Straight Shaft Gas Trimmer is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 4028.

I got this today by ordering it online picking it up at the HD. It works great. However, I'd save yourself an hour on how to load the trimming line by watching this video first: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqO3kKZttWc Next, instead of mixing oil and gas I'd recommend using Trufuel. It's a bit expensive, but it's worth it IMO. Home Depot is the cheapest place I've found to buy it. I use the 50:1 mix and a case (6 cans) is $34.99. Lastly, invest in some serious googles—not safety glasses—so debris can't bounce up and get you in the eye. I used the glasses that came with the trimmer and they're not great (although they're better than nothing). The problem is this trimmer throws up a lot of pebbles and dirt when in use. So after a few close calls today I'm buying a pair of Deawalt Safety Google (Model # DPG82-11C Internet #202220499).

After using this yesterday... I must say that it is by far, the best weed eater I have ever owned. I've always bought the cheapest I could find and then trashed it when it broke. This time I decided to get a decent machine in hopes that it would help this old man get the work done. Man! This thing is a "BEAST"! It was ready to "rock and roll"! I cleaned up a 200 ft. long creek bed behind our house in 1 hour and 15 minutes. It usually took me about 3 hours before! I only had to bump the line feeder twice and had 1/3 of a tank of gas left. Amazing! The I did the rest of the weed eating in record time as well. If you need a weed eater... this is the ticket! It's also very light and well balanced. Quieter than most too. ECHO model SRM-225, $199.00 at Home Depot. 3,104 reviews with 2,459 being 5 stars! And, I'm about to add another one! I can't believe I'm saying this... but, I actually enjoyed weed eating yesterday, for the first time in my 63 years!!!

For 200 Dollars (Roughly) you are getting a professional grade Weed eater that will work for you for a long time. Everything on this feels sturdy. I've had mine for around a year and do quite a few side jobs mowing lawns. This thing ALWAYS starts up 3 pulls for me. I only use the "echo pre mixed fuel" and it has yet to fail me. I don't mind spending a little extra for the fuel as we don't have any fuel in my area that doesn't contain ethanol. This thing runs like a champ and I expect it to carry on for years to come. Another great thing is that there are replacement parts for most of the things that will break for this unit. You can buy them at the store, or you can buy them from Echo directly. Awesome little weed eater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worh Every Penny - 2 Year Post Purchase Review for 2 Acre Lot ** 2 year post purchase review** I weed eat and edge with this trimmer twice a week on a 2 acre lot, I’ve never had an issue. It fires up immediately every single time, the quick feed head makes replacing the line a breeze and maintenance is easy. I’ve given this thing a run for its money and its never failed me once. ECHO has won me over, ill now be purchasing an edger and a blower without any hesitation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing weed eater I have had and tried all kinds of different weed eaters in the past.. they all lose their string, are hard to string, and get weeds wrapped around the head.. this one is complete opposite.. amazing power! I don’t see who would need a bigger engine. I love how you restring it! This thing seems like amazing quality. Go buy it and you won’t be disappointed!!

No problems with it and haven't changed or replaced a thing. I use this thing weekly as well and does incredible job. If you're looking for a weed eater, go to homedepot quick!! Just make sure you mix your gas right and you'll be okay.

Once the string gets down to an inch or two it retracts back into the head. Once this happens you are done. I had to stop and restring the unit 4 times during a 15 minute session just to get the job done. You have to make sure you constantly bump the head to ensure you have the maximum amount of line so it doesn't retract. For me this is the main reason I don't like this unit. 2. Head spins counterclockwise. After years of using trimmers spinning clockwise it is very hard to get used to the reverse tourqe of this trimmer. Since it spins backwards there is a constant barrage of debris flying in your face and legs. I didn't think this was going to be a big deal but it is very uncomfortable to operate and doesn't feel right. 3. This thing is powerful. So powerful that it can be hard to manuever and it goes through string quickly. It is hard to cut a nice straight edge as it will take off huge chunks if you are not careful. I feel like I have to bump the head every 10 seconds to keep the string long enough to keep from retracting again.
