Re: Echo vs stihl weed eater?

I have an Echo, straight shaft/Solid shaft SRM-261T
The T is a geared down /lower RPM, high torque model. Get the current SRM-280T.

Had mine for over 18 years now, home use, still going strong. It just plows through the roughest 3 foot tall ditch grass you can imagine without bogging. Its scary brutal with a metal brush blade. One swing and "ping" ...1"+ sapplings are toast. One carb rebuild with new gaskets is all I have done to it.

I purchased at the advice of a friend that was a mechanic at a mower shop. He knew what rocked.
