Echo GT-222ES Petrol Trimmer

  • Product Details

    ECHO’s decades of experience developing superb grass trimmers and brushcutters has led to homeowners and professionals worldwide turning to ECHO machines when faced with tough garden maintenance work. Designed specifically for domestic use, the GT-222ES is a lightweight curved shaft grass trimmer which offers excellent precision, reliable cutting power and outstanding ease of use, along with low vibration levels, a balanced design and outstanding build quality to ensure a longer service life and superior performance.

    Fitted with a versatile dual nylon line trimmer head as standard, the GT-222ES is equally effective whether used for tidying lawn edges and borders or cutting larger areas of longer grass. In terms of precision trimming, the performance of the GT-222ES is bolstered by its ergonomic design, with a curved shaft and comfortable loop handle helping to provide the best possible working position. Moreover, when dealing with tougher cutting jobs, such as clearing long grass and weeds or trimming areas of lawn inaccessible to a conventional lawnmower, the inclusion of a handy ‘Tap & Go’ line feed system vastly improves efficiency to help you get the job done quickly; simply tap the cutting head against the ground to advance the cutting line to an optimal working length. A protective cutting guard, meanwhile, deflects grass clippings and other debris thrown up while you work for increased user safety and comfort.

    Power to the cutting system is supplied by an industrious 21.2cc two-stroke petrol engine, featuring Power Boost Tornado technology™ to reduce noise and emission levels without any compromise on performance. In addition to this, the engine features ECHO’s smart Easy Start technology to reduce the effort required to use the recoil start, thus helping to ensure quick and hassle-free starting even on cold mornings. And finally, as with all of ECHO’s marvellous power tools the GT-222ES comes complete with a five year domestic warranty, allowing you to enjoy the cutting power and convenience of this superb grass trimmer with complete peace of mind.

    About Echo
    ECHO has been a leading Japanese manufacturer of commercial quality outdoor power equipment for over thirty years, but the origins of the company can be traced back further still. This is because ECHO is a branch of the Yamabiko Corporation, which was formed with the merger of the Kioritz Corporation and the Shindaiwa Corporation after WWII. Both of these companies had over fifty years of experience in their respective fields and the Yamabiko Corporation continued this heritage by drawing upon the experience of both, releasing a revolutionary new backpack power-duster in 1947. This was followed by the first Kyoritsu ‘power scythe’ brushcutter 1960, and in 1968 by the first “ECHO” product, the CS-80 chainsaw. Since then, ECHO has become a name associated with high performance, highly durable and superbly easy to use power tools across the globe.

    Extremely reliable and dependable, ECHO tools are ergonomically designed to be comfortable to use and perform to the very highest professional standards every working day. ECHO also continues to innovate, striving to stay at the cutting edge of technological development in order to provide the best products possible. This is particularly evident in the company’s development of low noise, low vibration and low emission engine technology, making ECHO tools significantly easier to use and better for the environment than many competing machines.

    These days the iconic orange casing of ECHO power tools can be found in garden sheds and garages throughout the UK, and with a wide range of products available for both commercial and domestic users, including a variety of handy chainsaws, hedgetrimmers, brushcutters and leaf blowers, there is therefore almost certainly an ECHO tool ideal for you, whatever your particular requirements.
