Echo HCA-265ES HD Pole Hedge Trimmer

  • Product Details

    Possibly the tallest human ever to have existed is the Giant of Castelnau, estimated to have stood at an impressive 11ft 6in by his (or her) discoverer, the anthropologist Georges Vacher de Lapouge, who uncovered fragmentary remains of the apparent giant in  a Bronze Age burial tumulus in 1890. Were this enormous figure still with us today, he or she would probably have had very little trouble trimming even the tallest hedgerows, shrubs and bushes. The rest of us, however, will occasionally need a little help, with ECHO’s HCA-265ES HD Pole Hedge Trimmer long-reach hedgetrimmer providing a handy method of maintaining tall hedges with the minimum of hassle.

    Designed for professional use, the HCA-265ES HD Pole Hedge Trimmer enables safe, efficient and accurate trimming and pruning at heights of up to around three metres without requiring a ladder. This is due to being fitted with an impressive 50cm double-sided blade and a sturdy long-reach shaft, providing an overall length of 2.41m. Laser cut and precision ground, the HCA-265ES HD Pole Hedge Trimmer’s blades will effortless cut through even dense vegetation and feature a protective tip guard to help maintain their sharpness. For added versatility and a more precise finish the trimmer head also features 135° of cutting angle articulation, making it easy to adapt the machine to the task at hand.

    Power, meanwhile, is delivered via an impressively hardworking 25.4cc two-stroke petrol engine. This engine has been made to be as quiet and clean running as possible so as to provide a less intrusive working experience, with digitally controlled capacitor discharge ignition and ECHO’s clever EasyStart system helping to ensure quick and hassle-free starting every time. The HCA-265ES HD Pole Hedge Trimmer’s 0.5 litre fuel tank, meanwhile, provides enough run time to ensure exceptional productivity and features an extra-wide neck opening to make refuelling quick, easy and spill-free.

    Being an ECHO machine, the HCA-265ES HD Pole Hedge Trimmer is also pleasingly tough and easy to use. ECHO’s longstanding commitment to build quality, for example, means that the HCA-265ES is reassuringly durable, while a three-stage heavy duty air filter is included to protect the engine and prevent power loss. User-friendliness, meanwhile, is ensured via ECHO’s brilliant anti-vibration technology and ergonomically designed controls, both of which ensure outstanding comfort even over extended periods of use. Equally convenient is the HCA-265ES’s foldaway blade, designed to facilitate efficient storage and transportation. On top of all of this, however, the HCA-265ES is also supplied as standard with either a five year domestic warranty or a two year commercial warranty, further guaranteeing a long service life and truly remarkable reliability. Thus, for the non-giants among us, ECHO’s HCA-265ES is definitely a handy thing to have around when faced with tall hedgerows in need of a good trim.

    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.
