    According to the Echo website, the SRM-3100 is 13.9, and the 3100S is 15.4 DRY. They seriously have come down in weight over the years.

    But still, my 3100 looks like it has been to hell and back...but still started on the first pull even though I forgot push the primer when I started it :cool:

    All right, I appreciate that, and don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to be snippy.

    Thanks.

    Slightly off topic: I was thinking about what people did before trimmers:) I'm guessing mowers were around for a good while, before straight shaft gas trimmers came on the scene. Just a guess.

    Sickles, hand shears and sythes. I have at least one of each and have used each of the extensively. I do need to fix the handle on the sythe though...it no longer tightens properly.

    I have a two year old Echo 235 and I am very pleased with it. I also started doing the vertical trimming this Summer and got very good at it.

    I was planning on upgrading to a 266 or 280 to have that extra power.

    I also have hand tools for "vertical trimming." We typically refer to that a edging.
