Echo HCR-1501 Petrol Hedge Trimmer

  • Product Details

    Hedgerows can be sneaky. You never see them growing, but let your guard down and before you know it they will encroach upon any nearby paths, driveways and entrances with striking enthusiasm. It is necessary, then, to occasionally reassert oneself in any garden blessed with such vigorously growing vegetation, something which having access to a high quality hedgetrimmer makes much easier. A professional quality machine designed to make tending to extensive hedgerows quick and easy, ECHO’s HC-1501 is just the tool for the job.

    Equipped with a potent dual-action, double-sided trimmer blade and able to withstand the demands of commercial use, the HCR-1501 is perfect for trimming all hedges, bushes and shrubs. This is because the HCR-1501’s hardened steel blades are laser cut and precision ground, thus ensuring that they always remain sharp enough to cut through even dense vegetation with ease. The effective cutting length of 49cm provides a pleasing balance between efficient and precise cutting, with a professional quality finish guaranteed every time.

    Power to the cutting system is provided via an efficient 21.2cc two-stroke petrol engine, with a traditional recoil pull starter included to make it easy to get your machine up and running. For added ease of use, however, the HCR-1501 (lightweight at only 5.1kg) also features a clever rotating rear handle. With five working positions available you can therefore quickly adjust the hedgetrimmer to suit the work at hand, even when trimming in tight corners. A sturdy but comfortable front handle, moreover, ensures exceptional manoeuvrability, while spring-assisted anti-vibration technology works to improve comfort and reduce operator fatigue during prolonged periods of use.

    As with all of ECHO’s high quality power tools, the HCR-1501 is also reassuringly durable and built to the highest standards for a longer and more reliable service life. A commercial grade, three-stage air filter, for example, protects the engine to prevent power loss and reduce service requirements, while easily adjustable cutter clearance makes it easy to keep your machine in top condition. To ensure complete peace of mind, moreover, the HCR-1501 is also supplied as standard with either a five year domestic warranty or a two year commercial warranty, further guaranteeing many years of satisfying cutting performance.

    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.
