    I bought an Echo ES231 with the vacuum kit about 4 months ago and it just went down again!! This is the third time! My dealer has fixed it under warranty, each time it was the coil not working.

    Does anybody have any similar problem with this unit? Thanks

    Maybe it's something to do with the #1 on the end?

    No problems here, other than a fuel delivery problem I fixed myself. I have no complaints with my Echo Shred-N-Vac... But my next one will very likely be a Stihl. Very slick, check them out next time around.

    Its because its an ECHO... I used to run all echo blowers, trimmers, clippers, etc... They just could not keep up.... I have replaced them with shidaiwa and have not had a problem since.
