There was a thread the other day discussing echo trimmers being hard to start and having carberator troubles. I have 2 2601 echos that dont start well and a 261t thats 16 months old, same thing. I wonder if its worth paying someone to rebuild them or should I jump ship and go Redmax or other model? I really don't know wether to fix these or get something else. I figure it will be about $100 each to repair so $300 buys 3 refurbished trimmers that might last a year or 2 or invest in 1 new trimmer thats more reliable. What would you do?
