The advantages that the Echo SRM-225 line trimmer has do not come without disadvantages, particularly in the overall size and structure of this particular weed eater.
Tendency to Jam: At times when you bump the head to add more string it will tend to jam in the machine which means having to stop and untangle or pull out more string before you can continue. It only happens occasionally, but often enough that it needs to be cited.
Durability: In the past couple of years, Echo has switched to a different company that builds its motors which have noticeably less endurance. While this may not be an issue for homeowners with small yards, for those who have larger properties and use the trimmer quite often, it may mean having to do major repairs or even replacement in a shorter time compared to previous Echo products.
