Looking at new echo trimmers what model does everyone like.
Echo SRM-265T. Great trimmer and great power.
second the stihl. ive had nothing but problems with echo. i have one left and i took it to my stihl dealer cause i cant deal with the echo dealer anymore.
i have three of the old SRm-210s, love them
have a SRM-230 awesome power
i heard the SRM-265 are a beast
That model has the 4-layer flex cable drive.
The model SRM-265S with its solid shaft drive is superior.
Never run stihl, I've always had echo and had good luck. Nice and light with very good power. I'm probably gonna pick up a 265T or S this year.
As I understand it, unless somebody tells me otherwise, the model SRM-265T
has the cable drive with a high torque (gear reduction) gearbox. The model
SRM-265S has the solid shaft drive with a low torque gearbox. So if my
assumptions are correct, the SRM-265T gives you more torque but won't last
as long, and the SRM-265S will last longer but won't give you as much torque.
You are incorrect as all ECHO trimmers come with a LIFETIME WARRENTY on the drive shaft it does not matter if it is solid or flex
Then why does Echo make both a cable drive version
and a solid shaft version? They must have a damn good
reason; I'm curious as heck to know what that reason is.
Why would someone prefer cable drive over shaft drive???
