    Hoping to get some suggestions on a replacement hedge trimmer. I do a lot of tall schip laurel and privet - privet hedges are several hundred feet long. I'm on a ladder quite a bit. I've been using an Echo SHC-212 Hedge Trimmer for several years, but I'm having difficulty with it and need a...

    Anyone run the 131R trimmer and feel the RPMs just doesn’t rev high as expected? Seems there are only two modes when pressing the trigger, low and about medium-highish rpm’s. I’ve been running Echo PAS SRM 2620s, been most reliable and high rpm’s when needed. I’m able to feather as needed. I’m...

    Just bought my first chainsaw - its used 2019 Echo CS400 with an 18" bar. Found it on CL and seems like its in good clean condition. Previous owner used up in the Rocky Mtn. high country (above 7500') to help clear an acre or so he was building on. Came with a new chain and all the crap that...

    Hi everyone. I have a 80’s lawn boy 7071, promo model. I plan on putting it to work when it’s a bit too steep for my 4 stroke push mower. I also have an echo SRM 225 and a homelite blower. Both the echo and the homelite state they need 50:1. I use red armor for the most part. If I mix 40:1 is...

    My old Homelite 2 cycle trimmer is finally going. My yard is not huge so part of me is inclined to go cheap and replace it with an Echo GT-225 or Ryobi 18v cordless if they are still on clearance. I use my manual pole saw one a year tops, usually once every couple of years. The other part of me...

    Currently have a Stihl MS 271 farm boss saw. Works fine, but I think I want to retire it or keep it as a spare. I’m wondering what people’s thoughts are on other brand saws? Particularly in the reliability department. Is Echo/Shindaiwa decent in chainsaws? How about Husqvarna? Side note: I have...

    This is the second flywheel I put on this damn blower and it keeps flying off. No matter how much I tighten it the damn thing just flys off when I attempt to start it. It only runs for a half second if I'm lucky. If I really tighten it then it just permanently warps the flywheel and it hits the...

    Hello Everyone - I'm debating on whether to purchase the OEM or try one of the after-market carbs for my Echo SHC-212. I'm curious whether anyone has had luck with after-market carbs and if so - could you provide a recommendation. Thanks in advance.

    I just want to give my experience and review so far with stinger equipment. I had high hopes that the quad aer 3600 would take my business to the next level as far as productivity & efficiency. It turned out that it did just the opposite. I ordered a quad aer 3600 back in august but they...

    Today I was cutting through some thick, long grass with my trimmer and brushcutter attachments powered by my PAS-2620. I was cutting through the grass at full throttle. After doing this work I noticed that the gear box is very hot. It would burn my hand it's so hot. I just bought all my PAS...
