Questions & Answers

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

Asked by: TMan
The guard is useless no matter which side I approach from it throws grass all over me face, chest and legs. In comparison, my old Mccolloch only threw clippings on my legs.

weed wacker will not release string when Bumped in other words bump does not work

I have taken machine to a professional garden shop repair place because wind in string did not work that was solved now at home will not bump out feed line to work Shop repair place has been in business for over 20 years he did not run machine and test bump out on string. acts like locked up ? what could be the cause of this can any one reply? Please
Asked by: echo22
I had the same problem with mine one time after taking the head apart to clean and inspect it and it turned out I had installed the spool backwards. When I flipped the spool back everything worked properly. It's a good idea to mark the spool when removing it so you know which side is out when you put it back in. Great machine! The best one I have ever owned!

Can this SRM225 be turned on it's side for edging without harming the unit?

Asked by: shazaman
Absolutely. Two stroke engines can run in any configuration because they are lubricated from the oil that is added to the fuel, rather than a four stroke engine which have an oil sump.

ECHO 21.2 cc Gas 2-Stroke Cycle Straight Shaft Trimmer is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 3104.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Trimmer ive ever owned I'm not sure why a few people had such problems with this machine. I have a small lawn care business, I have bought plenty of ryobi's, I have 4 to be exact and not one of them is running. Bought my first echo 2 years ago and is now 1 of the 3 I own. These trimmers will be running off and on for 8 hours a day 3-5 days a week, always starts and never any problems. The only problem i do run into is the primer bulbs drying out and cracking but its a .60cent fix. For those that had problems with feeding the line, its actually a quick feed, you shouldn't have to take it apart to feed it. You need to pull out a strand of line 6-8', feed the ends through the holes then start turning the bump feed clockwise and the string should start winding up. Once you get it wound up it should be a loop of string across the head of the trimmer. cut it in half and your ready to do work. Any other problems you may have, resort back to the owners manual, it will tell you all you need to know. thanks

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!!!

After much research online i decided on this unit from Home Depot and will say this is by FAR the best trimmer I have purchased in 35+ years. After trimming approx 1160 Feet x 1 ft wide (paced it off) and 120 ft of 8ft wide ditch I used a little more than half its fuel and bumped the line less than 10 times, plenty of line left. It is very well balanced and does not vibrate your hands off. The trimmer has plenty of power, in my opinion, and is a little quieter than most trimmers. 2 cold starts were used, no problems. Starts very easily when warm. It is not supplied with a strap and the trigger is a little awkward for me. I have only used this trimmer 1 time and sure hope it lasts as long as everyone says it will. I did get the 2 year warranty extension for $25 as I have a terrible track record with trimmers. I average 1 every 2 to 3 years or so. For $224 plus tax I am very happy about this purchase. Hope I'm saying the same thing this time next year. I have not tried restringing it yet.

Ive had nothing but problems with all their products. The trimmers Worked amazing. My issue is with the manufactures 5 year warranty, customer service, defective parts that go bad often and have to be special ordered. Echo flat out refuses to honor their warranty. The warranty calls out if there are defects in the product it should be covered. I have repetitively tried to contact Echo on the phone to fix the defects, the 1st time Echo sent me to a service dealer in the are, dealer was rude and basically told me to get lost. Tried contacting Echo and its like they refuse to answer the phone. So I then tried social media and they blocked me. NO reply just blocked. The part on the trimmer goes bad about every 4-6 months and its a special order and I have to keep purchasing a new item. You have to Special order the Grease! The service centers are just garbage in my area. I shouldve just went with stihl!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WOW! is the word I choose I've had a Craftsman 32CC trimmer for several years. So, when I looked at this trimmer I had some concerns. One being the displacement size and two the string size. well, after the first 15 mins. of use I was no longer concerned. this product has it right in all areas. I was working all demands, form quarter throttle to full and it never cared. even in heavy grass at half throttle, I could give it full throttle and it went straight to it. Very impressive and pleased. from grazing across the grass to scalping the surface the .095 string was very good. control and feel was very good. the lighter weight allows for a very user friendly control. I ran the first tank of fuel over an hour non-stop until it ran dry (good break in). Idle was good throttle control and response good, Bump head feed never missed a beat. Value for dollar is spot one and then some. I'm "Happy, Happy, Happy" !!! Hope you enjoy the same experience that I have. It has definitely been worth the research. Plus the 5 year Warr. Please...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Quality Very much worth the price, this is probably the best string trimmer I've used. It started with 3 pulls first time, and has been pretty consistently around that. With the pull chord being easy on the arm as well.... It is not super heavy, but has plenty of power. I have determined to use the high quality ethanol free pre-mixed fuel as well. It is more expensive, but for the homeowner, the trimmer is efficient enough that the cost is negligible, and you are guaranteed the best performing fuel for the engine, without risking ethanol damage, treat your engine right and it will be a workhorse... I was very pleased with the bump feed string loader as well, it works great and is in fact very easy to load. No taking things apart, just put the chord through and wind it up, great! I would also recommend the ECHO brand cross-fire chord as well, it is phenomenal, strong and effective. You can get a cheaper trimmer, but I don't think you'll get a better one. Save yourself the hassle and headache of cheaper models and go with this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy starting and no vibration This is the first straight shaft trimmer I’ve used, I’ve always used a curve shaft before. I would highly recommend this trimmer. I was a little worried about the handle, but it seems to hold up fine so far and takes all the vibration out. I’ve only used the trimmer three times but it is very easy to start. I think the shield could have been bigger to protect the operator better. I do like the pre-mix they sent so you don’t have an extra can of gas sitting around and you don’t have to worry about the mixing formula. (Safer also!) I got the pre-mix a day or two prior to the trimmer. The trimmer was already pre-assembled so there was no hassle of having the correct tools. I went to Echo’s website and registered the trimmer (very easy process!) and checked out the various attachments I can get for this trimmer. Only problem was there was only one store listed in my area for purchasing the attachments and that store did not know anything about the attachments. So far, compared to other trimmers, I am very impressed with this one and I knew Echo has a good reputation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SRM=225 Great Trimmer Yesterday I just bought this weed trimmer for my wife and she loves it. She had an old Weed Eater that finally wore out and she wanted to move to a gas Trimmer. We originally went to Big R and purchased a STIHL trimmer on the advise of a neighbor. Brought it home and tried to use it and right off the bat had trouble with it. Took it right back to Big R to return it and they did not want to accept it back. Poor return policy on powered equipment. After haggling with them and the manager calling STIHL and his head office, they finally gave us our money back. The next morning I was on my computer researching weed trimmer and this ECHO SRM 225 had the best reviews. Bought it from Home Depot, took it home, fueled it up with the ECHO fuel, primed the fuel system and it started right up. Adjusted the handle down about a foot because my wife is only 5 foot tall, gave it to her and she went to town on our yard. My wife and I are in our mid sixties and found this product to be light weight, well made and easy to use.
