Comment:
I previously had a stihl FS 38 which only lasted 2.5 years. When i pulled to start it i felt like i was going to pull my arm out of the socket until one day it just never started again. I went in to my local mom and pop shop and they recommended echo 225 and boy am i glad they did. My 2 year could start this thing, and it cuts amazing. Finally a trimmer worth buying!

Comment:
This product was great for the first three weeks but I would like to warn anyone considering this product that customer service at echo believes that $180 in maintenance within the first 3 months is acceptable and that a non working weedeater should not be warrantied because its just basic upkeep. I spent $220 on this 3 months ago and now I am back to shopping for a new brand of weedeater....This is very frustrating, one of the worst customer service experiences I have ever had.
