Do you have to use special diamond line or will regular .095 line work?
Asked by: Mike
In my short time of owning it (less than a week), I've successfully run standard 0.60, 0.80, and the diamond .095 line through the speed-head. All have worked equally as well in the head, but the OEM diamond stuff lasted a lot longer and performed better. I'm told it will accept up to .15 line, but I haven't tried that. No doubt it will take the standard non-diamond .095 most people use.

Can you run synthetic oil in it?

Asked by: Keith
i use Trufuel 50:1 Pre-mixed Fuel + Oil. from home depo. and that is mixed with synthetic oil. so you shouldn't have too much trouble with it, but that being said you should just buy the premix stuff and not worry about the right gas and 2 cycle oil to mix. most pump gas has 10% ethanol mixed in and thats not good for your 2 cycle engine. it will run with your home mix you make but your trimmer might not last as many yrs as you were hoping for. Good luck.

This is the SRM-266 Model we use at work for the city of Davenport. it is very reliable. I have bought one for home, for personal use. Its a quality piece of Equipment. All I have ever had to do was add gas and string. I also own the SRM-230 model for the last seven years. It also is quality equipment. Still running and reliable.

Echo engi... 3rd echo trimmer, but may be my last. srm-225 was changed so I bought this "upgrade". Echo engines are great (except for the irritating tendency to flood if you leave fuel in them), but this trimmer head is junk. Worked for two line-loadings, but now will not work properly at all. Either leads all the line out or won't let it out at all. Line stuck inside so I had to disassemble the head (manual has zero guidance on how it should be put back together), so I doubted my re-assembly and have tried the center line reel with "L" up and with "R" up (it will fit either way), but only "L" even tries to operate properly, "R" sucks all the line back in immediately. Attempting to contact echo for resolution.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I had been using a Tanaka grass trimmer for 5 years with no problems. It was not fussy about gas ... I had been using a Tanaka grass trimmer for 5 years with no problems. It was not fussy about gas and always ran good until I had an accident and fell backward on to the trimmer motor and broke off the carburetor and 5 of my ribs. The following year I decided to buy an Echo SRM-266 after reading many of the good reviews...big mistake. After running about a gallon of fresh gas with Echo 50:1 oli it would not start. I took it to a dealer who quizzed me about how fresh was the gas and it could not be older than 2 weeks plus I really should use his PreMix gas at 5 times the price of high octane pump gas. So now there are doubts as to whether Echo will honor the warranty because the problem was probably caused by Ethanol which is in all all gas sold in California but not in PreMix.. No mention was made of this when I purchased the trimmer from Home Depot. After thinking about this for a day I called the dealer and said if the trimmer can not be fixed under the warrant don't fix it at all and I ordered a new Tanaka trimmer. I've have spent thousands of dollars at Home Depot but not warning customers about the changes in fuel demands has soured me from doing anymore business with them. Oh and yes I am guilty of not reading the instruction book from cover to cover so I guess that leaves Echo off the hook!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Buy I bought my ECHO SRM-266 several months ago it’s everything you will ever need as a home owner. Believe me I researched a lot before I bought it was between ECHO and that other orange color which had more cc power. Well I got the SRM-266 out after watching the videos I decided here we go new fuel primed 3 pulls starts and idle keep in mind first time starting it. I tried to break it no lie 3ft grass 3,4 swipes gone idled down 2 times was very impressed and 5 year warranty for residential owners I would recommend this weed trimmers to anyone and you will not be disappointed. I also cut all of the weeds and grass with factory bump head original string. So everyone knows I do not work for or have any connection with ECHO I really bought it was not given to me so I would promote it real customer and over pleased with this buy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Professional grade trimmer. I had purchased another brand 4 cycle model about 2 months ago. I used it 4 times, was very unsatisfied and returned it. A friend told me about the Echo models and how pleased he was with them. I visited my local dealer and was very impressed with the salesman and his knowledge of the products. I explained what I was planning to clear with this product and my future plans on possibly adding a cutting blade to it. He suggested the SRM-266 straight shaft trimmer. I am totally pleased with this product. It takes whatever I throw at it. I trim my ditches that contain cattails, briers, and pampas grass, with no trouble. It starts easy, runs strong, turns up fast and doesn't bog down. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking to move up to a serious professional grade trimmer.

Starts by the 2nd or 3rd pull of cord, lots of power, and with that extra power i find it more comfortable to wear gloves with it for the vibration i feel in my hand when running it for more than 45 min. I expect to have this trimmer for many years. i got this trimmer because i have a echo chain saw that has not failed me for over ten yrs. i know the quality is in the engine, so don't be afraid to give echo a chance when looking for a new trimmer. Love the bump head. never seen one like this,dont even have to take off to fill. its awesome tweak.

This product gets a 1 star review only because it would not let me give it 0 (zero) stars. Would not start straight from the store. Purchased this on 7/21/18 as a replacement for a Ryobi 4 cycle that was purchased 1 week earlier and returned. Also purchased the ECHO RED ARMOR 50:1 PREMIUM FUEL at the same time for use with this item. Got it home and tried to use it, (no assembly required, ready to use straight from the store - Great!). unfortunately, it would NOT start, drained the fuel and tried a second tank, made sure that fuel was getting to the carb, still no start. Returned it and bought a Troy-Bilt.
