Does anyone know anything about the echo pe200 edger?
Yes. How can I help?
is it a good edger? I have just landed a commercial account and prior to this I have just used my weedeater to edge prior to this. I am a part-timer who is looking to go in the business full time. any advice is appreciated.
I have an Echo Pe 2400. I think it is middle of the road for power, in the Echo line of edgers. There are times when I wish it had a little more power. IMHO, the Pe 200 might be a tad underpowered.
thanks tjlc. I may just go and get the sthil 85 edger. that is the one i want but the wife doesnt want me to spend that much money.
It is lacking a little power, it does the job for part-timers.
I lost my shidaiwa on the interstate do to an irresponsible former employee and baught a 200 from a friend. It gets the job done on maintenance jobs but when I really need to cut through the thick stuff it just dosn't have the power I need. I will upgrade to the shindaiwa ASAP.
For commercial use, the PE200 would not be recommended. It is strictly a homeowner model. In an Echo I would go no smaller than the PE260 (more power than the FC85), but would highly recommend the PE310. Heavier, yes, but a real beast.
Tell your wife that your tools are what make you money.
I really appreciate the input. Thanks
Avoid the Echo and get a Stihl. It is worth the extra money and will last 3 to 4 times as long as the Echo.
