Hi folks! I would like to fit a Stihl gearhaed attachment on a Echo SRM-260 trimmer. Will the drive shaft and tube match? I own Echo stuff but like that Stihl offers gearhead attachments such as the Power Scythe.

Take your Echo to your nearest Stihl dealer and have then compare. They may be able to try it without you buying it.

Can't even change between the two different Echo shafts (steel/flex) so I would high doubt it will interchange with any other brands.

I did it the other way around and created the stihlecho and got two years out of it. I had to grind the end of the shaft to get it to fit.

Thanks guys. It sounds like Stihl uses a slightly larger square drive shaft than the Echo cable drive I have so I'll have to do some more thinking.
