Powerfull Unit with one week pointReview by Oldman
The SRM 280 S is a beast. Easy starting and plenty of power. The bump head stinks. I have used it twice 4 hours each time and the bump head has jamed the line 6 times. Yes I read the instructions , used the proper size line and did not put more line in than recommended. Come on ECHO I know you can make the bump head better. Charge $10.00 more, design it properly and robust. (Posted on 6/12/13)
