Its a good trimmer for what you want to use it for, but if its heavy brush cutting or a ton of accounts you get Id move up to a heavy duty stihl.

i actually used one for over a year in heavy comercial use. all i did was clean the spark plug one time, and the spark arrester has never been cleaned. i don't know about the newer epa regulated units though.

Ive had a 2100, which is the same thing, and used it regularly for 3 years now. I also have a 2400 and to be honest with you, there isnt any noticeable difference in power. The 2100 is also lighter. Everyone always seems to grab the Echos before they grab the Sthil Fs85. The sthil seems like a lead weight compared to the Echos. Although I personally feel like the Stihl has more power. Still the 210 is a good trimmer, especially for light use.

I've got one and it works fine for regular trimming, but like the others say it is somewhat lacking in power for those heavy jobs.

Plus they take a some effort to get them going first thing in the morning. Usually 5-7 pulls, but 1-2 once they've been started.

I do like the lightweight of the unit. Makes it easy to control and use for extended periods.

i actually used one commercially for two years. i bought it in a pinch, expecting to replace it, but it just keep on running. finally got tired of it's slouchy power and bought a 260s. but the old 210 still runs. you can pull start it with sewing thread now it's so worn out, but it really never lost much power it seems.
