    I just bought a robin bh2500 trimmer 4 stroke engine.It puts my echo srm-210 to shame cutting tall grass.it came with a shoulder strap and i just put in one of those rapid loader heads on it. all in all it cost me around $400 total for the trimmer and head.

    I have to honestly say my Echo 2601 is the best trimmer I've ever had. I've had it for YEARS. I have a 260s too, doesn't warm up as fast when cold out, but it's also awesome. Replace the spark plug and air filter once a year, that's IT. So smooth, balanced, powerful.

    I like the Stihl 80R and 100Rx a lot more power than the Echo units
