Just got this

published

I was on the verge of buying the Stihl but thought to check this site first. So I got the Echo thanks to reviewers. It seems very well designed and made. easy to put together and use for the first time. I will update this as I use it more.

Purchased in January 2020 at Bunnings Warehouse for A$299.00.

A really great brushcutter

published

I ask for 2 things in a brushcutter- Easy start and easy line replacement. 10 months ago I bought an Echo brushcutter for $279 and it's perfect. Starts 2nd pull as in the brochure, line replacement couldn't be any easier, and the line lasts a long long time. Nice and light. Made in Japan.
I did a bit of research because the previous brushcutter was so difficult to start, even from new, that I had to spray Ether into the intake every time I tried to start it.
This short video made me decide to buy one and I couldn't be happier with it.

Hi Lorraine,

You can buy it from Bunnings. The best one is the model GT222-ES which has the bent shaft. They are easier to use than the straight shaft models. They have increased in price to $339 probably due to COVID.
