Questions for Echo string trimmer users
I've about decided on the SRM 210 or the SRM 230 based on researching old posts here. I was reading through the manual for the 210 and had a couple questions.
The manual recommends 89 octane fuel. All my other equpment runs fine on 87 octane. Comments?
The manual also recommends that the unit not be stored with fuel in it, they say to drain unused fuel after each use. I have seen a few posts that have complained of fuel line deterioration with these units. What are your experiences?
And last, is the 230 worth the extra $70.00? My lot is bordered on one side (about 500 feet) by woods, which requires periodic "beating back". And I will be using it about twice a year to clear shooting lanes through the woods at the gun club.
Thanks for all your thoughts/comments.
