    It is the weakest "commercial" trimmer Echo sells.

    Don't buy it from Home Depot!!! Buy it from a dealer and pay the same amount but get service.

    Go bigger for a few bucks more and don't look back!

    here where i live home depot they sell for 219. and my dealer sells for 199. But i would step up to the srm-230 for 269.00 much better trimmer i used to buy the 210 but got tired of grease on my arm from the oil seal getting old.

    home depot appears to have raised their prices on echo products above what the local dealers are carrying it for.

    Even more reason to ask why the hell would you buy any power equipment from a place like that.......

    I mean, to save a buck is one thing but when the dealerships are carrying it for less...

    srm-260 will last alot longer and is much better, also most dealers will repair if any problems happen. home depot will most likely tell you to send it back to echo for repair.

    i wouldnt waste my time buying from a dealer. if you cant work on a little two cycle then you dont belong in this business. by the time you take it to the dealer and have them work on it, you could have bought a new one. i think the 210's are great and i get all of mine at the home depot because dealers suck.
