The Echo gas hedge trimmer, model Echo HC 150 makes an excellent choice of commercial trimmer. The 5 years warranty available with this cutter is an important factor when comparing professional types of trimmers.
Power Type – Gas or Electric?
Cordless Or Corded?
Falls under the commercial hedge trimmers grade and is powered by a 21.2 cc Power Boost Vortex engine. This Echo gas hedge trimmer shouldn’t present any problems when having to cut long stretches of hedging. Blades are precision ground to give a longer lasting edge sharpness and an improved overall cutting performance.
Suitable for Cutting Vertically?
Echo don’t mention anything about having a rear swivel handle although it does have a front D handle. Wouldn’t surprise me if they were to introduce the swivel handle the same as so many other companies have.
Dual Action Blades?
No – As mentioned elsewhere on this site, professionals are not really inclined to leave reviews after purchase.
That being said, the warranty tells us a lot. They provide a 5 years warranty to those who purchase the Echo HC-150 to use and even a 2 years warranty for those renting out the echo hedge trimmer.
I’m not quite sure what the figure 90 days in their warranty statement means. Does it mean that the equipment has to be rented from a retailer for a minimum of 90 days or, that the retailer has to have purchased the trimmer at least 90 days?
Point is, if this is something that would affect you, then I advise that you seek clarification before purchase if you were planning a hedge trimmer rental scheme.
