    Echo's 261-t is by far the best trimmer I've used from Echo, I actually have 3 of them, I wanted to try the newer ones but unfortunately they didn't fit so good on my greentouch racks :cry:

    Echo stepped over the line in weight.....the 261T was right on the limit and these feel heavier.They keep saying they got more power so what I got plenty of power on the 261T:hammerhead:
