Echo HCR-165ES Petrol Hedge Trimmer

  • Product Details


    A high quality machine with more than enough power to take on even the toughest trimming work, the HCR-165ES also features ECHO’s superb anti-vibration system. As well as addressing the serious health and safety issues related to prolonged exposure to excessive vibration, the added comfort the vibration dampening technology provides enables longer periods of use without requiring a break and thus helps get the job done quickly and efficiently. The difference this makes is significant, especially if you are a professional contractor in need of a machine capable of handling the everyday rigours of commercial use.

    Powered by a hardworking 21.2cc two-stroke petrol engine, with an EasyStart system included to reduce starter cord resistance and ensure hassle-free starting, the HCR-165ES also boasts a tough, 68cm reciprocating double-blade with an effective cutting length of 63.9cm. Laser cut and precision ground to ensure that they maintain their sharpness over time, these twin blades make trimming extensive hedgerows an enjoyably efficient process and leave a truly immaculate finish in their wake.

    The HCR-165ES also features ergonomically designed controls which combine with the anti-vibration system to make this excellent hedgetrimmer almost improbably convenient to use. Perhaps most notable is ECHO’s clever rotating rear handle, featuring five working positions to allow you to adapt the hedgetrimmer to suit the requirements of the job at hand (even when trimming tricky shrubs in confined spaces or up against walls). Another nice little touch is the inclusion of an extra-wide opening on the HCR-161ES’s (pleasingly capacious) 0.5 litre fuel tank, which facilitates quick refuelling while also preventing spillages.

    An already tough machine (built with a three-stage heavy duty air filter to ensure long-term engine power and reliability, as well as adjustable cutter clearance to ensure a longer blade life), the HCR-165ES also comes as standard with ECHO’s five year domestic warranty or a two year commercial warranty. You can thus rest assured of many years of top quality performance from this excellent trimmer, with reliability and professional results longstanding hallmarks of the ECHO brand.

    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.
