    SRM 210. Best trimmer for the money. Very light and plenty of power for weekly accounts. Little underpowered for overgrown properties though. If I would of known echo was discontinuing this trimmer for the 225 awhile back, I would of bought 2 or 3 of them.

    For the most part the 225 is all we use. Light and get the job done for normal resi work.

    I have a Husqvarna 125L that I bought as a back-up and it is light and does good with regular trimming. It is very light as well.

    I'm not sure if there are any differences between the 210 and the 225. They are both 21.2 cc and weigh the same. My dad has the 210 and I have the 225 and I can't tell a difference between them. The 210 just has a different handle.

    I enjoy the lighter weight of the 210 over the 230 or my PAS 265 but the 230 goes through noticeably less fuel and has more gusto to do the vertical summer burn free edging [around sidewalks and driveways etc.] I’m famous for in this area. :)

    Very, very few other companies edge like me. Most LCO’s here tapper down to ZERO like a Marines haircut with a touch of moss or a unsightly transition to ugly brownish summer burn. :hammerhead:
