Does anyone have any experience with the Echo gas grass trimmers?. Any input on this subject is appreciated.

Many thanks,
Steve

Steve, we had one that was problematic. It bacame hard to start after 1 or 2 seasons. This was a number of years ago, so things may be different now.

Steve,

My son has used one for all of one season. So far, no problem! \:D

But on a serious note, he's using a gas stabilizer together with making sure he ran all the gas out at the end of last season. The gas stabilizer helps prevent gasket rot which often causes problems in such tools (snow blowers, etc.)

Thanks folks.

kathyk, maybe we need a little levity right now. That is why I posted my question which just so happens to be important to me right now. Where else am I going to get an answer to a question such as this from people I know and trust?.

Regards to all,
Steve

Just kidding you Steve. It did seem a little funny seeing a lonely week wacker thread amongst all of these lacrimose, doomsday ones. ;\) Great picture in the picture thread, and nice to attach a face to you.

Well, all I have to say to that is DOH! [whacks head]. I didn't realize that there was a Mikester and a Stevester. Sorry about that Steve. Saw that ..ester... and just that it was you. Well, where IS your picture?

MM, I do need a break, but I'm keeping vigil here. We'll all have a break soon enough. \:\(
