Eh. Get a stihl fs80r. Much better product and will outlast the echo many years.

buy the srm 230 from a dealer much more power than the 210, i personally like shindaiwa 2-cycle equipment but buy it from the dealer so you can have support later

I have a couple of the srm 230 mentioned above. I would recommend them to anyone. I have had very little trouble with them.

Desent trimmer works well under normal conditions, would try to go to dealer though in case something breaks.

I have a SRM 230 and a Stihl FS55. The Echo is smooth and pleasant to run. It has a good fuel capacity as well. I like the power from the Stihl, it is definately more powerful. I occasionally have issues starting up up and I can only run it for about 25 minutes before having to refuel. I was going to switch over to all Stihl tools but I have changed my mind about that now.

I've ran the echo 210's decent unit and also stihls, redmax, shindaiwa, and my favorite just because of the balance of it a kawasaki

210s are great and gas efficient as heck. They also don't get hot and burn your arm unless its 35+C out. The 260's are great aswell but get hot.
