The Echo HCA-265ES LW articulating hedge trimmer allows you to cut and shape tall and wide hedges with less relience on ladders and platforms.

It has a 50cm double-sided double reciprocating blade that adjusts to 10 different cutting angles through 120º degrees and an overall length of 2148mm.  The blade rotates 180º with a lock position for safe transportation and easy storage, keeping the cutter parallel to the shaft.

The HCA-265ES LW is powered by a 25.4cc Echo two stroke engine with the Easy-Start system. A culmination of years of unique and innovative developments, Easy-Start works to minimise the effort required to start the engine with greatly reduced pulling power and no kick-back effect.  In most cases, the effort required to pull the starter is reduced by up to 50% compared to standard models.

The Echo HCA-265ES LW is fitted with an ultra-light magnesium gear case and aluminium support bar, the overall weight of the machine is just 6.5kg. The well positioned fuel tank with higher spout aids filling with less risk of spillage.

Echo first invented and produced the long reach hedge trimmer, and each model has gone from strength to strength. The Echo HCA-265ES LW is a commercial-grade long reach hedge cutter with low vibration and smooth running.

Perfectly balanced, lightweight and easy to control, Echo hedge cutters deliver unmatched performance and enduring reliability. All Echo hedge cutters have been developed for total operator comfort - allowing you to get on with the job in hand.

Echo works as hard as you do

Renowned for product durability and versatility, ECHO Bear Cat has one of the broadest line of chippers/shredders in the market place. ECHO Bear Cat products include EZ TrimMowers, Stump Grinders, Bear Vac Lawn Vacuums, Chipper Shredders (upright, towable and PTO models) and larger Chippers.


ECHO products come equipped with a range of unique product features designed to deliver ease and comfort for users.

ECHO is successful in producing low vibration and low noise for power tools and are leaders in two-stroke power tool emission technology. ECHO Bear Cat products come with a host of features and are renowned for their unmatched performance and quality construction.

Leading in two-stroke power tool emission technology
ECHO has the widest variety of emission compliant engines ever certified for EPA, CARB regulations and EU directives. ECHO has condensed the years of development in the USA into the trademarked Power Boost Tornado technology, with a highly refined two-stroke engine design. This technology is now applied across the ECHO Power Tool range, with engines delivering more power, higher fuel efficiency and better engine lubrication, while improving combustion and reducing exhaust emissions.

Low Vibration
ECHO has taken up the challenge and is successfully producing measures for maximum control of vibration. ECHO products are designed and manufactured for constant and lengthy use by professional users, with homeowners/domestic users also able to enjoy the benefits of commercial quality and features. Under independent tests, ECHO brush cutters and ECHO hedge cutters have produced the lowest vibration figures. ECHO is one of very few manufacturers who make its own engines, therefore every ECHO product is designed and tested as a completed package. This ensures high quality, ergonomically designed equipment, with maximum vibration controls.

Low Noise
With power tool equipment in use in public and residential areas, noise is of primary concern, ECHO has developed the technology to control and minimise noise pollution. ECHO designs and manufactures engines from scratch, matching low noise engines to low vibration products, by retaining complete manufacturing control.

ECHO Innovation - i-start
The i-start device makes first time starting of two-stroke engines a certainty, while removing 90% of the effort required. i-start stores the energy of one long and gentle pull, or two short pulls of the recoil starter and delivers it in a dynamic burst that starts the engine every time.

ECHO Innovation - Easy Start
Denoted by the ES symbol on the power tool, Easy Start works in a different way to i-start to minimise the effort required to start the engine. With Easy Start the pulling power needed on the starter rope is greatly reduced compared to other makes, with no kick-back effect when cranking.

Echo power tools come with a five year domestic warranty and two year warranty for professional use.  For the domestic user there is the total reassurance of using equipment designed and built for professionals, and a five year warranty offers even greater peace of mind.  Registration of Echo products and servicing are necessary to validate the warranty.
