    Eh. Get a stihl fs80r. Much better product and will outlast the echo many years.

    buy the srm 230 from a dealer much more power than the 210, i personally like shindaiwa 2-cycle equipment but buy it from the dealer so you can have support later

    I have a couple of the srm 230 mentioned above. I would recommend them to anyone. I have had very little trouble with them.

    Desent trimmer works well under normal conditions, would try to go to dealer though in case something breaks.

    I have a SRM 230 and a Stihl FS55. The Echo is smooth and pleasant to run. It has a good fuel capacity as well. I like the power from the Stihl, it is definately more powerful. I occasionally have issues starting up up and I can only run it for about 25 minutes before having to refuel. I was going to switch over to all Stihl tools but I have changed my mind about that now.
