The 280 is 10.8lbs

I have 2 280's and 1 260
3 Rapid Load Trimmer Heads
1 Articulating Hedge Trimmer
1 Pole Pruner
2 Brush Cutters
1 Power Sweeper
1 Blower
1 3' Extension
1 Power Edger

I love these units. I have people tell me that the 280 w/Trimmer is heavy. But I have used them for over 2 years now and I don't feel that they are. They do have plenty of power for what ever you want to throw at them.

Not to long ago I started a thread asking for opinions of the power rake attachment and only got one reply. Anybody on this thread have one and if so what are your thoughts

You might think about having the guys at shop or you cutting down an old trimmer. I I mean some one landed a limb on my old 230 it sat in shed for about 4 years then I brought it to shop and ordered the parts made it a pas works fine I use the edger and hedge trimmer don't bother with the pole saw just go for the echo power pole saw its great I've got the hedge attach for that too! I think the pas adapter cost me installed 175 ?

I tried a 266 and a 280 the other day when I had to replace my SRM210 head amazing machines, when I get new mower getting the 280 and all but 2 of the attachments.

I'm using the the lower attachment from the PAS as a head on my 210 right now the stock is sitting put up indoors waiting on the upper 280.

Thanks for all the input!

Are The Tiller Attachment's Any Good? Durable? Long Lasting?
