    how much would you guys pay for a echo trimmer. it is a echo gt-200ezr. i tried to find it on ebay and some other places but no dice. it is used but in excellent excellent shape. As good as a used piece of equipment can get. It was one of my customers and she and I traded 100 dollars of lawn care for it and a cheap ryiobi plug-in blower that i will eventually just give to someone. We did trade services for equipment before. 200 dollars of lawn care for a really nice snapper self propel. So nice it sat for 4 months and i pulled the string and it started. One pull. Same with the trimmer. 3 pulls.

    Anyway just seeing how much you guys would pay or better yet how much do you think its worth?

    but the trimmer is a bent shaft trimmer. no good for novice, and advanced professionals. If you find the right person i would think you could get 110, but i dont know what it retails

    You can score a bent shaft trimmer like the one you described for around $60 in a pawnshop around here, Ofishil. BTW, where in tx are you?

    I am not familiar with that model ECHO but the SRM-2100 I had I wouldn't give a tinkers damn for much less money.

    I hated that thing and I took it back for a full refund.

    but to be fair...it ran very smoothly. but I still hated that POS.

    I paid $129 for a brand new srm 260 at a pawn shop. Looked like brand new! Best money i ever spent at the pawn shop.
