    Can anyone tell me what other trimmer spool will fiit into a echo srm-210 trimmer head? Echo doesn't seem to sell just the spool, you have to buy the whole gear head which is costly specially when you don't need it.

    Thanks Guys

    You can get just the spool from an Echo dealer. No, Home Depot does not carry them, they want you to buy the head. They are about $13.

    You can get a shindaiwa speed feed head (they have them in a new smaller size now too) and the adapter kit to fit an Echo straight shaft. Roughly $36 for the large head w/adapter and $28 for the smaller head w/adapter.

    Or yes, if all you need is the spool, find an Echo dealer.
