We use ECHO trimmers on a daily basis
I work for a large School Corporation in Indiana and we use only ECHO Trimmers on a daily basis anywhere from six to seven hours a day five days a week. We trim nine schools and several other buildings in the Corporation. The ECHO Trimmer that I have been using is at least six years old (if not older) and runs great.
Last week while I was trimming I placed the trimmer on the back of the tail gate and we took a break. After the break we moved the truck and I forgot to close the tail gate and while backing up the trimmer fell off the truck and was run over by the dump truck I was driving. I thought that was the end of the trimmer, but guess what? The trimmer still works great and I still use it on a daily basis. The shaft was bent and the cover plate was cracked, but other than that it works just great. This is just a testimony to the fact that ECHO makes the best trimmers in the world that run even after being run over by a dump truck and are used by far more than the average individual would use in a lifetime.
