  • It runs like a champ

    I just started up my new hedge trimmer HC-152 and it runs like a champ. It took less than 10 minutes to trim my hedges 14' long with this powerful trimmer. the only setback is the weight of it. reaching out in front to get the tops of the shrubs can be a strain on the arms.

  • Purchased this to replace our 2004 HC-160 Trimmer, and I love the improvements. The balance of the trimmer seems better, but it does seem to get heavy after prolonged use. It's easy to start, and has a lot of power. After using many of your other products, I have one suggestion; with more women entering the landscaping workforce, perhaps there could be more consideration in the size and weight of your products. Other than that, kudos...great product!!

  • I'd recommend this product given it's price, ease of use, and performance

    We have holly bushes and boxwood shrubs that are 12 years old and grown like crazy. My wife was trying to keep them trimmed using a battery powered model (not an Echo). I decided to get a gas powered one and bought the HC-152. I trimmed all of the hedges/bushes with the new trimmer and it cuts well, is easy to use, and seems very rugged. If cutting branches, common sense still prevails and you have to "feed" the branch into the blades. Another thing I like about this is the ease of use, from gassing up for the first time, starting and then getting busy trimming. And on the topic of starting, it fired up on the fourth pull - brand new, out of the box, first fuel. During use, as I would shut the machine off to clean up as I went, it started first pull, every time, even after setting for 15-20 minutes and using NO choke. I'd recommend this product given it's price, ease of use, and performance; I have a couple of other major manufacturers tools (weed trimmer, blower, chain saw) and the Echo is right there with them (and a little above) all of them in build and again, performance.

  • Keep up the good work ECHO!

    I just purchased the HC-152 Hedge Trimmer...what a great tool! I have a lot of bushes that need to be trimmed two times a year, the HC has cut my time in half! Also I don't have to worry about cutting the extension cord anymore. I have been a loyal Stihl customer for most of my life until a few years back when I bought an ECHO Blower, I have been hooked ever since. Keep up the good work ECHO!

  • I am very satisfied that I purchased an ECHO

    I purchased an HC-152 trimmer. This unit is easy to use and has an automatic response time when you pull the trigger. The unit is lightweight and durable. I physically hand held several other makes and found the Echo to be the best felt unit in my hands. keep up the good manufacturing procedures. I am very satisfied that I purchased an Echo.

  • It is extremely efficient and powerful

    ECHO is the BEST!!!!! I own an Echo Hedge trimmer model # HC-152. I just recently purchased the Hedge trimmmer HC-152. I use it on our shrubs. It will cut branches up to 1/2 inch. It is extremely efficient and powerful. I highly recommend ECHO Products.

  • They were used so long we actually wore them out

    I was self employed at one time owning a tree business. We did lots of trimming of evergreens.a local dealer ordered us a Echo hedge trimmer maybe the first of its kind in town.I converted it over to electronic ignition.That was all I can remember having to repair on these trimmers.We liked the starting with ease ,not having to pull more than twice on COLD starts.THE trimmers were used near twenty years .They were used so long we actually wore them out.They never had an easy life.So thats why my new blower is an Echo.

  • This piece of equipment is amazing

    I recently purchased the shc-225/s hedge trimmers. This piece of equipment is amazing, I have owned other brands of trimmers before but have never had the power that these have. Very easy to start, hit the priming bubble 3 times then cranks on first pull. choke isn't really needed, maybe in very cold weather? cant beat the price and performance of this product.

  • As I have used other name brands which were not up to par. After purchase of other ECHO products , Which I have never had any problems with, no reason to change no. My new purchase of an ECHO 20" hedge trimmer did not let me down. Worked great same as other ECHO products I have and use, no complaints.

  • Won't Purchase Anything Else

    The SHC-225S hedge trimmer I just purchased is my second and it works flawlessly. I also own 2 Echo backpack blowers, a chain saw and string trimmer. For ease of start, reliable operation, parts availability and maintainability I will not purchase any outdoor power equipment but ECHO.

  • Cuts Everything!

    I recently purchased the HC-152 Hedge Trimmer and it is one amazing piece of equipment. I grew tired of dragging around the extension cord, and replacing electric trimmers as soon as the blade went dull. Echo products were highly recommended by my brother-in-law due to the excellent warranty and craftsmanship. My new trimmer also saves me time. Instead of going back and forth across the same spot, my new HC-152 cuts everything on the first pass. I couldn't be happier with this purchase! Next up...the GT-230 String Trimmer!

  • I'll Always Be an Echo User

    Im writing you to tell you how much your products can withstand abuse and neglect. I recently moved into my new home and found this Echo HC-1500 hedge trimmer laying in the dirt behind a shed out in the back yard. It had must been left outside by the previous owners. The house has been empty for sometime at least a year before we bought it and moved in. The amazing thing about it was the only thing wrong with it was the primer bulb had rotted off and the blades were rusty from being out in the weather for about a year or so. I went to a outdoor power equipment dealer and got a primer bulb. I installed the bulb and it fired up after about 4 pulls. I did have to adjust the carburetor settings some but it started up and ran. I couldn't believe that this trimmer sat outside for about a year and it all it needed was a primer bulb to start and run. I did have to keep spraying oil on the cutting blades for a couple of weeks until most of the rust came off the blades. I still have the trimmer today and use it about once a month to trim some hedges in the back yard. Thank you for making such a great product. I will always be an echo power equipment user. Thank you Ken

  • Echo Makes Great Products!

    I purchased the HC-152 because of my experience and the performance of my Echo blower, works great and never a problem (5 years). I use the product all day for several hours, worked great! No issues, cut through very large branches and has plenty of power. I did look at battery powered options but when you factory in limited charge time, cost of additional batteries etc... and lost time waiting for product to charge, there was no savings. Echo always delivers and you can't beat the warranty. I went to a local Stihl dealer to review their options and when I told the manager what I was looking at for Echo, he said "I can't beat that, the warranty is amazing. Echo makes great products!

  • Won't Be My Last ECHO

    The HC-152 Hedge Trimmer is my first Echo product and it won't be my last. The trimmer is powerful, light, and effective! It cut through everything like butter; no problem at all when it encounterd a "good size" branch! I look forward to being an Echo consumer for years.

  • So Much Better

    I bought my HC-152 model hedge trimmer 11 days ago. I have used it several times. It is so much better than an electrical trimmer with the cord hanging up on the hedge and getting cut. It is light enough to trim a long hedge without tiring the arms and shoulders. It cuts through larger stems than I could believe.

  • Fire-proof? Yup.

    I'd like to say first that ECHO is fire proof and fire extinquisher proof. Three days ago now a had some trouble with my engine and found out that i had mixed deisel instead of gas. First time that ive ever done this. the deisel was old and had a gas smell so this is how i got mixed up!! Anyways i fiqured out the problem and cleaned out the gas and put in fresh mixed. as i was cleaning it out i had the spark plug out which was giving off a spark but at the same time drops of fuel were spraying out of the plug hole. suddenly the engine caught fire and the whole engine was engulfed in flames so i waved it around until my brother got a fire estinguisher and stoped the fire. i had the air filter off at the time so we cleaned that area off with gas because of the foam, cleaned the rest of the machine, put the cap back on, primed the engine, pulled the cord and it fired up on the second pull. AMAZING.

  • ECHO Reliability

    Thanks for a Reliable Product I would like to thank those at ECHO who are in charge of making sure your products are reliable. I just finished my second year of running my own landscaping business. The trimmers that I bought when I started are running without a problem, and the hedge clippers that I bought this season worked great. My employees know that we use ECHO products because they are reliable. I want all of my customers and fellow landscapers to know we use ECHO just by looking at us. Thank you for your products and services. Sincerely,

  • A Testimony to the Toughness of Your Products

    Dear sirs, I just wanted to share an incredible story with you about an ECHO product. I own an ECHO string trimmer, two SHC-212 hedge clippers, and three extended reach hedge clippers. One of the extended reach clippers, (an SHC-260) belonged to my brother who is now out of the business. He left it on his trailer after he left the business. It stayed there for several years out in the weather with only an old plastic grocery bag over the powerhead. The bag had broken down on the top from UV exposure, (It's harsh here in FL.) but the bottom was still fairly intact. It apparently filled with water every time we got rain. I finally asked my brother if I could have it for parts, and he agreed. I took it off the trailer, and removed the bag from the powerhead. I then removed the spark plug just to check the condition. I can still hardly believe what happened next. A small frog came out of the cylinder! I would not believe it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes. Incidentally, my oldest brother witnessed this too. I then poured out a few ounces of water that was in the cylinder, and put in a few drops of 50:1 mix. I Pulled the starting cord a several times, and then replaced the spark plug. I turned on the ignition, and the unit started on the second pull! What a testimony to the toughness of your products. I guess the frog must have gotten in through the carburetor, because the choke was open? I don't really know, but I know what I saw. The water in the cylinder alone should have ruined the unit. Anyway, you may think this is a fabricated story, but I would not take the time to write this if it wasn't true. I hope you are as impressed with your product as I am.
