This year’s ECHO stand at Saltex had a theme of High Torque power, featuring the ECHO range of commercial grade high torque brushcutters. Attracting a great deal of interest throughout the show, this new generation of brushcutter has a 1:2 gear reduction ratio to deliver up to 50% more torque at the cutting head, compared to previous models. This means a high torque brushcutter provides the same cutting performance as a larger machine, but with a smaller, lightweight engine.
The ECHO stand at the Saltex was exceptionally busy on both days of the show and the company reports good quality leads from the strong attendance. It proved to be the ideal venue for the introduction of the first of ECHO’s new Lithium Ion product range which includes a Power Blower, Hedge Trimmer and Brushcutter. Delivering similar performance levels to that of the petrol counterparts, the Lithium Ion products have considerably lower noise and emission levels, making them ideally suitable for use in noise sensitive and emission regulated areas.
The other new product on display was the ECHO CS-2511TES Top-Handle chainsaw which ECHO say has been designed with the professional arborist in mind. It is the lightest and most compact top-handle chainsaw in the ECHO range and as such can be used for longer periods without fatigue.
ECHO products are manufactured by the Yamabiko Corporation, a leading Japanese manufacturer of professional-quality, outdoor power equipment for over 60 years. ECHO are extremely confident in their machines, offering a two-year professional warranty or five-year domestic use warranty, a clear testament to the durability of the equipment.
