Echo Rapid loader

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...4+5234&pos=n20

Echo 751t

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.
