PURCHASING ECHO PRODUCTS
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 technologyECHO 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 VibrationECHO 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 NoiseWith 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-startThe 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 StartDenoted 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.
