    ok im thinking about getting a new string trimmer and i have an echo blower and am very happy with it, i am looking into an echo trimmer and was wondering if anybody uses, or have used the echo pro attachment series and if they work that well, and what the pro's and con's are?

    I've got two PAS-260 systems. I love em. One is about 4 yrs old (no trouble at all) and my newest is about a year now. Run both trimmers weekly in a cemetery as welll as the regular accounts. We edge probably a mile of pavement a week. Use the broom to sweep the rocks back onto the driveways at the cemetery and light snow removal in winter.

    I'd buy another in a heartbeat.

    I have a PAS 260 as well. It is used for running an edger as well as hedge clippers and see some use using a rapid loader with .135 line for cutting down brushy areas. You can't go wrong with this unit.

    I use all Echo handhelds, as well, and love 'em!! I, too, have the PAS 260. I only had the edger attachment (which I love!!) until this spring, when I bought the articulating hedge clipper...haven't used it yet but will soon, as my own shrubs need sprucing up!! :rolleyes: I like the flexibility of the PAS for tasks that don't necessarily require a dedicated unit (e.g. edging, pruning, etc.). For trimming, though, I have two units solely for that purpose...

    I think you will be quite pleased with the PAS (and anything Echo, for that matter!!).

    My next Echo purchase will likely be a chain saw and/or pole saw...any opinions on those??

    I have a power sweeper attachment and a edger attachment. Probably about 5 yrs old. would sell the power sweep bristle attachment for 100 and the edger for 25. or buy both for 100. Sweeper works good, and the edger needs a blade, and a retainer nut, I think it is. If anyone is interested just pm me.
