Yeah I love the hell outta these Rapid-loader Trimmer heads, they are made by echo but fit all types of trimmers, $20 at home depot, I really hate winding up trimmer spools, with these heads all u do is cut off some 9" pieces of line and stick it in, you cant pull the line back out , very fast, nothing complicated, nothing to get lost, nothing to break, I cant live without this head...Plus I just checked to get post the link and they are half price right now online! ten bucks............... http://www.homedepot.com/prel80/HDUS/EN_US/diy_main/pg_diy.jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@1800056573.1139276031@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccdgaddgmffedjicgelceffdfgidgkj.0&CNTTYPE=PROD_META&CNTKEY=misc/searchResults.jsp&MID=9876&N=2984+5234&pos=n20

I Am Not A Big Fan Of Echo Equipment. I Have Had Far Better Luck With Stihl. But 14 Months Ago I Bought A 752t Because They Had The Best Air Volume In My Areas Dealer Selection. It Blows Circles Around My Old Pb-410's And It Has Always Started On The 1st Pull. That Is One Heck Of A Machine If You Ask Me It Cuts Down On Clean Up Times Considerably. I Want Another One Instead Of My Pb 410 It Feels Like I Am Waisting My Time When I Am Using It.

Yes these are awesome, have been using them for years, but try to find the 3 string head it makes a world of difference for trimming speed and when you get into heavy stuff. They run about $30. You need a higher CC output trimmer to spin it though.

Travis, I have the pas-260 echo, when I bought it I bought the pole pruner attachment for it. That has to be the best investment I have made so far.

I cannot work without my peltors worktunes, they save your hearing and let you listen to music while you work. Makes the day go by soo much faster. A couple of times I have forgot them at home, it made my day soo bad.....plus the batteries seam to last forever in mine,,all season I think
