Product Description

Superbly dependable, ECHO tools are all designed to be comfortable to use and to perform to the very highest professional standards. The company has also garnered an enviable reputation for innovation, striving to stay at the cutting edge of horticultural technology in order to provide the best products possible. ECHO’s low-noise, low-vibration two-stroke engines, for example, deliver a fantastic combination of power and convenience. This is evident in machines such as in the HC-331ES; a superbly powerful single-sided hedgetrimmer which is designed to produce exceptional results while allowing you to work in complete comfort at all times.

Fitted with a single-sided, precision ground blade for an effective cutting length of around 73cm, the HC-331ES is perfect for maintaining straight sections of hedge in parks and large gardens. The advantage of having a single-sided blade is that the cutting edge can be longer without making the machine unwieldy or cumbersome. This also allows the HC-331ES to boast a more powerful engine (a nippy little 23.6cc two-stroke petrol number) than any of the double-sided hedgetrimmers in ECHO’s range, further ensuring exceptional cutting power whenever you need it. In place of a second cutting edge, the HC-331ES features a handy cutting collector. This enhances performance by preventing trimmings from becoming trapped amidst foliage as you work, thus guaranteeing unimpeded progress at all times.

Additional convenience is provided by the machine’s ergonomically designed controls and innovative vibration-isolating technology, each of which serves to make the HC-331ES easier and more comfortable to use over extended periods of time. Along with the low overall weight of the machine (only 5.8kg), the well-balanced design of the HC331-ES further improves handling and thus allows you to achieve an exceptionally accurate cut almost effortlessly.

As with all ECHO machines, the HC-331ES is also more than tough enough to withstand the rigorous demands of professional use. Built with high quality components throughout, the HC-331ES features a three-stage heavy duty air filter for added engine protection, while adjustable cutter clearance ensures superior cutting performance over time. The blades, moreover, are made from especially hardened steel to help maintain their sharpness, so you can rely upon the HC-331ES to perform whenever called upon. In addition to this, ECHO even supplies each machine with either a five year domestic warranty or a two year commercial warranty as standard, further underlining their faith in the excellence and reliability of their work and helping ensure complete satisfaction for you.

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.
