Echo Brush Cutter Power in a String Trimmer Body
We’ve all seen professional landscapers rip the guards off their trimmers, let out tons of string and go to town. Manufacturers kinda hate that—well, except Echo apparently. The new Echo SRM-410X Straight Shaft Trimmer slings out a 20″ cutting swath. And it’s designed with enough horsepower to do it all day long. The fact that it has a large 33.8oz fuel tank seems to back that up.
Features and Ergonomics Built-in
The commercial Echo SRM-410X String Trimmer basically takes the power of the SRM-410U brushcutter, ditches the U-handle, and puts it in a string trimmer. It gives you a 60.2” straight steel drive shaft powered by a 42.7cc 2-stroke commercial gas engine. Backing up that motor is a pleated air filtration system that you can change with just a screwdriver.
This trimmer looks perfect for tall, heavy grasses, hilly terrain, ditches—anywhere you need to take out large areas of weeds or overgrowth. It includes a Speed-Feed 450 trimmer head and .095 Black Diamond trimmer line.
Echo paid some attention to operator comfort, too, using what it calls an “extra heavy-duty vibration reduction system”. Between that, the cushioned front handle, and the included harness—this should work together towards making this a pretty easy string trimmer to carry around and use—even for hours at a time.
The Echo SRM-410X String Trimmer can also work with a blade. With the inclusion of the debris shield, barrier bar, blade-mount hardware, and harness—it’s ready to transition to a brushcutter blade when needed.
Echo SRM-410X String Trimmer Pricing
Priced at $549.99, the Echo SRM-410X trimmer definitely qualifies as a workhorse model designed for intense work. Echo also covers it with a 2-year commercial warranty and a 5-year consumer warranty. Overall, the ECHO SRM-410X looks like it might test out as one of, if not the most powerful trimmers available in the commercial market.
