You can add a brush blade to the srm 230 sp but I don't see that option for the srm 230.

can you get an edging blade attachment for the Echo 2 cycle 22.8 cc grass trimmer? This product for $289 at Home Depot.

Asked by: the troops
The 230 and 230sp both say no to attachments. But you can add a brush blade to the head of the srm 230 sp.

2-Cycle 22.8cc Straight Shaft Gas Trimmer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 356.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from SRM-230 Great Product ! This is my second ECHO, the first one is still running after 15 years, my son needed one so I passed it on to him and bought a new one. After putting in pre mix and priming it started on the second pull and it idled very smooth. After I let it warm up a short period I went to work and trimmed down the 3 foot high weeds on my bank and it had no problem cutting through the tall stuff with power to spare. When bumping the ground to let out line it worked flawless with no problems. The motor did not have to be tuned or touched it ran great. I always check my equipment before and after for loose bolts etc and found no problems. I would definitely recommend this product. Also it might be a good idea to include a shoulder strap for the older operators.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Trimmer So far the best trimmer I have owned, I had bought the EGO 56 volt trimmer because of the trouble starting my other gas fueled trimmer's, What a disappointment as to what the advertisement said it was as powerful as a gas fueled trimmer or better. It did cut light grass ok and the battery did last about 45 minutes but there were problems with the line feeding and compared to a gas powered trimmer it did not come close to measuring up however I would say it was superior to all the cordless trimmer I have had. I read the reveiws on the echo SMR-225 & the SMR-230 and bought the SMR-230, other than it would be nice to have a shoulder strap as it tends to get a little heavy after 30 minutes. However it does start up within three pull's once you get the prime / choke controls figured out and it does idle without stalling, The most powerful gas trimer and the easiest to start trimmer I have ever owned so I give two thumbs up on this one,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Trimmer with lots of power. I have owned this trimmer for about a month and used it extensively on a large property with heavy use. Pros: Starts easily, revs up quickly, lots of power, and easy to handle and control. Trimmer head is super easy to re-load. Cons: Trimmer head fell off the third time I used it, however it was easy to re-attach. Seems like the trimmer head was not properly tightened at the factory. The last time I used the trimmer, both sides of the line broke off close to the head. I needed to remove the head to re-load the line. In my opinion the weakest part of this trimmer is the head. I'll probably need to replace the standard head with a different head that will hold up better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stop reviewing, and go buy it!!! If you are anything like me, you spend a lot of time researching and reviewing products prior to buying. Well, I'll save you some time... Stop it and go buy this trimmer. After fighting with my 1 acre of grass with my previous trimmer, I had to look into another trimmer to save my back and my time. I had a 28cc prior, and I have to say that this 22.8cc trimmer out performs the larger one that I had by far. Right out of the box, this thing started with three pulls, and took down huge weeds with out a problem. The speed feed head also saves a lot of time in line replacement. So, stop looking at reviews and go out and buy this awesome Echo trimmer. You will not regret it..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Pruduct I bought this as a replacement for another string trimmer (not echo brand) I have had some experience with Echo before. I live on a farm so I need a pretty good string trimmer. Out of the box this thing ran beautifully, the first day I cleaned about 200 ft of fence row, just to try out it, worked great! My biggest concern purchasing this product was the string diameter, .095, I don't know what the deal is but the string lasts longer in this than my old trimmer that used .105 string! Maybe it is the RPM because it does turn considerably faster. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking to purchase a larger string trimmer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bullet proof for 13 seasons I bought this model at the begining of the 2000 mowing season. I have used it weekly on multiple properties ever since. I replaced the head early the first season with an Echo rapid loader head, as I prefer the ease of using cut line to bump and go heads. I've changed the spark plug and filters once in 13 years and it has been trouble-free the whole time. A friend of mine who is out of work needed a new line trimmer, I gave him mine and bought a new one of the same model. I have friends who have bought (and fought with) three or four cheaper line trimmers in the same time. They ended up spending much more in the long run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great machine Spent a little more than planned but knew it would be well worth it. I'm sure I don't need to tell everyone how the motor is strong, easy to start and one of the best in the market. Feature I like the most is the string rewind head, great engineering and works perfectly !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, Easy to start, Lots of power! I use these trimmers for my lawn care company, and they are awesome! We've used Stihl, and many other brands, but the Echo SRM230 is the best we've found. From the comfortable hand grips, to the easy starting and great power band, these really can't be beat. If you are looking for a trimmer that will stand up to years of use, look no further.
