    I Have a Spare 210 Echo Trimmer Laying around my Yard.I have been wanting to turn it into a brushcutter for the last couple of months but I did not know how to do it.I was looking in my Echo book and they were selling diffrent brushcutter blades for it. I know i am probably going to have to replace the plastic trimmer gaurd but i do not know what else.I thought of buying a brushcutter but i didnt want to spend the money for something if i was only going to use it a couple times of year... And What blade works well cutting down bamboo.

    As the owner of the 210 echos(3). I think they are great trimmers. That being said I don't think they would do to well as a brush cutter. I just don't think 210 has enough power. Best of luck and I hope if you do make one into a brush cutter it works out good.

    I agree not enough power my back up 230 is lacking compared to my 261t
