Get it. I bought one for my echo, much better than the echo rewind head. Very easy to load.

where did you pick yours up at and how much did it cost, if you don't mind me asking.

I have whatever the larger model is and love it. I have never had a tangled cord and it's quick and easy to load.

If this is the larger head it is not really recommended for the small homeowner trimmers. That was what the dealer said anyway. I installed one on my father inlaws SRM 210 and it does just fine. You may have to add a single flat washer to keep it from hitting the guard. It runs just fine on the small trimmer.

I was first using the larger 450 speed feed heads but, have gone to the 375 on the 2 trimmers that we most use. The 375 is easier for smaller engined trimmers to spin and it holds a sufficient amount of line. The 450 holds a lot of string and smaller engined trimmers can spin it but, just not as easily.

I love the Echo/Shindiawia Speed-Feed heads! They work great and reload much easier than the Stihl Auto Cut 25-2 bump feed head.
