    anyone use the echo srm210, i was wondering how it holds up because its on the low end commercial grade. i will only be using it for 15 accounts.

    Ive been using Echoes forever. This past season, Ive been cutting down my route and picked one up in the spring. So far so good. I use it on about 30 weekly.......I still miss the carb adjustment screws though.

    I use the 210 and it is great to start with, but as I grow, I will need more power and durability. Maybe one with a steel shaft.

    Used to use them. They wear or quick and lose power. They also had parts like the on/off switches falling off them. I think they stink!!! Never buy anything echo again.

    I started with an Echo 210. I replace it after 2 years. It lost power quickly. Once I bought something on the higher end, I will not go back to Echo products. I started with Echo trimmers, edgers, and back pack blowers. Now I have Shindaiwa and Red Max products. There is a substantial increase in power and longevity with the higher end products.

    Kingbman, I have the same trimmer. So far so good, but it is on the light commercial side. Will probably upgrade to a 260 next season and use the 210 as a backup and use the Craftsman as dedicated brush cutter. No problems with Echo so far, I also have the PB603 backpack blower and love it.
