Very well built product, easy to use. The quick disconnect is very well build and easy to slide in and out of the power head to lock down the tool. as you can see by the picture, I cleared the whole back of my lot, 80 feet , in about 30 minutes.
Pros: Cuts Well, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Good Size & Weight, Durable, Powerful, Easy to Store, Long-Lasting
This equipment works well. Only had some problem to assemble it, as bottom screw was very tight. I had to go to the shop to untighten iit. It appeared to be counter clockwise so all my efforts to unloosen it, only made it tighter. But the shop helped me out in a friendly way.
This is a dream piece of equipment. My property is acres of trees, the undergrowth of which is a jumble of different kinds of vines, wild blackberry, wild rose, barberry and tree seedlings and young saplings. An impassable jungle. This attachment on the Echo engine cuts through it all. It's not easy, but it works where nothing else ever has -- except a Bobcat Brush Hog which cost me $600 to rent for one day. I live in hope now that I will be able to reclaim areas of my property that I had given up to the jungle.
Pros: Cuts Well, Easy to Use, Powerful, Great Engine, Easy to Store
This is awesome for trimming the brush and weeds too large for string. Watch your toes! Once you figure out how to swing the trimmer to get the blade working for you, it's awesome, and can cut up to 1-1/2" fairly quick and easy with just a good swipe/swing. FYI - It's uni-directional so I got great cuts moving left to right, but it didn't work as well the other direction, which makes perfect sense.

The brush cutter is a little heavy for me to operate for a length of time, but I do use the harness which helps some. The cutter works quite well and I am glad I have purchased the Echo PAS 225 and can use a variety of attachments that I plan to add to my collection. With proper care, these Echo cutters and trimmers can last a very long time. Glad I got it..
This attachment is Awesome.. I've used it to cut down some overgrown weeds that are starting to become the size of saplings... The only problem I have is that nowhere is it mentioned that you should use the Bicycle style handles when operating this attachment, except in the manual for the power head, now I have to go out and spend more money to operate this attachment safely...
Pros: Durable, Powerful, Cuts Well, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Easy to Store, Light Weight

Review 11 for PAS Brush Cutter Attachment
Another quality attachment to futher the Echo investment
The Brushcutter works quite well, but be cautious!! Run your engine at high speed to force the blade also to be at high speed! If you do not run at high speed, you're opening the door for the Brushcutter to do a kick-back. ALWAYS BE SAFETY-MINDED WITH THIS TOOL!!
Pros: Cuts Well, Good Size & Weight, Easy to Store
For me it took some time getting use to, but when I did - wife has to remind me to stop. The Bush cutter attachment is easy to assemble - just remember that threads are reversed, left on- right off. I was cutting 3" sapling with the attachment without much difficulty. I got my money's worth purchasing this attachment.

Had a lot of small undergrowth 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inch on the property that was too small for a chain saw. It works great but plan on using some muscle and keep your kids away. Worked great on my Florida jungle, a lot of florida holly (Brazilian pepper) and palmetto.
This is a perfect product if you want to reclaim your yard cheap. Blade works well, but if you have more heavy duty like I had 8" or 9" Renegade Blade from Amazon works extremely well. It will cut down saplings up to 3" in diameter easy.
It starts fairly easily. I use the brush cutter blade which works great on brush, not so great on individual grass blades or for some reason thin twigs of poison ivy or hackberry tree. It also works great on clumps of fescue, not so great on bermuda. I probably need to shift to a string trimmer. I did have an issue with my first power head; Home Depot immediately exchanged for a new power head. The new one works like a champ. I read that some people didn't like the length and was a bit worried, but I find it just right--I'm 5'6", female. The shoulder harness that came with the brush cutter is a bit of a challenge to adjust. Not sure why the belt thing is there, especially since it seems to adjust in the back. The assembly instructions could be a little more detailed( one picture, and sort of small)
Pros: Durable, Great Engine, 5 year warranty
Cons: needs better assembly instructions, brush cutter doesn't cut small grass well

Review 20 for PAS Brush Cutter Attachment
Misleading product information for 99944200600 PAS 80 Tooth Blade Brushcutter
PostedJune 5, 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
If this is not compatible with SRM-210, then I am a victim of erroneous product labeling.
The list starts with the prefix "SRM-" and is then followed by model numbers without its repetition. So I understand this to mean that except where PAS prefix is used, all these are SRMs. 210 is one of the apparently SRM models on this list. So it is rather a rude surprise to be told that the thing is not compatible.
I saw that I would be charged for shipping, if I return this item. But even if I were not to be charged, I am already too inconvenienced. If I did not already own an Echo tool I would not buy one, ever. The naming is too subtle, and the manuals are too casual about the subtlety.
Still I see the power head on the attachment looks excatly the same as the power head on my SRM 210. I must therefore wonder whether the head is not transferable to the SRM 210 power shaft (i.e. by removing it from its attachment and then using it to replace the original SRM-210 powerhead). I started by fixing the debris shield onto my SRM 210 powerhead, and the parts are an exact match. It is only when you reach the blade that you find it is a non-match. However the attachment of the head looks an exact match to the original attachment of SRM 210 head, therefore seeming to suggest that the heads are substitutable. Unfortunately the person who told me it is incompatible did not include any info about his expertise with the tool - whether it is practical or only from various product descriptions (which seem to differ with source of information).
