    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi! Thank you for your inquiry. We don't have horsepower information for our units but we can consider that for every 15cc there is 1HP. So, for this unit 22.8 cc divided by 15 the horsepower is equal 1.52.

          Great Commercial Trimmer
          I love this trimmer it's amazing how much power is in a lightweight package. I am a professional landscaper and would recommend it it to any professional or homeowner alike. Great price and plenty of power to cut through the thickest of grass and light underbrush. It's also great on gas I have done two yards with heavy weed eating on one tank of gas more cutting less refueling.

          Echo srm-230
          I purchased this trimmer in the end of 2014 and now I have had this for half the year. it's a great trimmer it starts on the 1st or 2nd pull. It cuts through very thick grass then right about now the engine has been failing so I troubleshooted and it came to the most simple thing it needed new gas. The gas it was 2 years old with no stablelizer. So that's it thank you for reading my review

            SRM-330
            I have owned this product for about 10 years and I love it. I know it recommends 89 octane mixed 50:1 but I have ran this unit off of 112 octane LEADED race gas with a mixture of 16:1 and it always starts first pull. I replace the spark plug every year at the start of season and neber drain the fuel from storage in winter. The oil mixture i use is a little smoky but im more concerned with long engine life with more lubrication than I am about having to replace the sparkplug. I love this thing

              Unreliable
              Hard to start, has warm up issues like most echo products do, would not recommend this weed eater or echo in general

                Never buy a “Homeowner” grade any thing
                I have had my 230 for three seasons now. It works and looks like it was brand new. Key is take care of it. I purchased the 230 to replace a Homelight trimmer. I had a really good Homelight trimmer for twenty-five years. That is back when Homelight was a quality company. I replace that with a new homelight all in one unit. Construction was junk. After Homelight was bought out, it was down hill. I purchased the 230 to replace that piece of junk. Very happy with my 230. I know it will outlast me. Contractor Grade is the only way to go. If you buy Contractor grade anything you buy once. Buy Homeowner grade and you will be buying it over and over again.

                  6-year review
                  I bought a an SRM-230 in 2013, and it has been great! Reliable, lots of power, always easy to start. Pretty good fuel economy, clears acres at a time without bogging down in grass and light brush. The choke + primer bulb are very well implemented. Highly recommended! Just used stabilized, ethanol-free gas and this model will run for a long, long time.

                    Love my trimmer!
                    Is there a Blade Conversion Kit that will fit the SRM-230? The product page for Blade Conversion Kit #99944200422 lists compatible models. The SRM-225 is included on this list but this SRM-230 is not. Why? The SRM-230 is very powerful and does it’s job.

                      Echo stuff is the BEST!!
                      I've owned a SRM 230 trimmer for about 13-15 years and all I've done to it is one new plug and one new air filter. I've had a new fuel line/tank filter kit for a couple years but never needed to install it!! I use premium fuel with a small shot of Marvel Mystery Oil in it and it still runs like a top!! I have an even older GT 2400 curved shaft and same thing except I just replaced the fuel line/filter/tank grommet on that one. When I needed a gas blower there was no thought involved, I got the Echo PLN 250. Love Echo equipment!!

                          Outstanding Power!
                          This is the third grass trimmer I've owned and by far the most powerful. It makes short work of trimming my .52 acre lot. The trimmer is relatively easy to start. It holds enough gas to trim my entire lot on one tankful. The head makes it easy to advance the nylon line and is by far the easiest trimmer head I've ever reloaded.
