I only speak of echo 260s (awsome).
Just bought a New 260S and works Great and starts easy.The only Bad part is it scares people sounds like a Cahinsaw.
i would go SHIN-T250 or STIHL-FS85
I have a 2002 SRM260 and like it. I have a2003 Shin t270 and like it.
The materials and detail are better on the Shin.
I would buy both again.
Shindaiwa solid shaft [excellent for edging with a long line, and a slide bore carb for excellent throttle response.
My buddy burned up two Echo's last season using echo oil so something is up with their materials or quality control. [srm 260s]. One was still on warrenty the other just off.
They stopped making this model years ago. I'd go with the T-230 , T-260, or the T-270.
ur right i meant 270 thanks
I sell Echo now and I sold Shindaiwa a few years ago. Both of them make great equipment so either would be a good choice. If I were making this decision I would look at the dealer you have to purchase from. Quality equipment is easier to find than a quality dealer.
If it's man made then a man can break it.
Yup, and if it's made by man, and named Echo, it will break sooner and more often. If it's made by man, and named Shindaiwa, you likely won't need dealer support. No, I don't get royalties from them, and yes, I know I sound like a broken record, but I have eight (8) shins, 6 trimmers and 2 edgers, and over the years, ONE of them has had to have the grip replaced. That's it.
