28 MARCH 2017 OUTDOOR POWER EQUIPMENT www.outdoorpowerequipment.com H E D G E T R I M M E R S & B R U S H C U T T E R S EQUIPMENT & TECHNOLOGY FOCUS Echo ProXtreme 2620 Series offers a brushcutter selection Calling the Echo ProXtreme Series the most powerful 26-cc engine family ever developed, Echo Inc. is seeking to redefine the performance standard for professional landscapers with its new 2620 Series products. In addition to a standard trimmer (SRM-2620), a high-torque trimmer (SRM-2620T), and an edger (PE-2620), the series also contains a brushcutter (SRM-2620U). The SRM-2620U brushcutter features a solid shaft. Gear reduction is 1.62:1. The tool-less, adjustable, U-shaped handle has an integrated throttle lever and can fold parallel for storing and transport. It comes with an additional shield for blade use and shoulder harness. The blade is an optional purchase. The ProXtreme Series 2620 powerhead is what makes this lineup special. It offers a unique combination of high power and low weight. The newly designed 25.4-cc professional-grade 2-stroke engine delivers 1.35 hp. The weight reduction is achieved primarily by using military-grade magnesium versus aluminum. Better air filtration is provided by using a 2-stage air filtration system. An insulator plate and flexible bellow-style fuel transfer system dramatically reduce heat. That system, combined with a remote fuel tank air vent versus an integrated fuel cap vent, prevents clogging and reduces re-start issues. The larger fuel tank allows for extended run time between fill-ups. Echo Inc. Echo HCS-3020/4020 professional-grade hedge trimmers Echo's new HCS-3020 (30-inch) and HCS-4020 (40-inch) hedge trimmers with 21.2-cc 2-stroke engines deliver outstanding power with professional features for cleaner and more precise operation. The single-sided, double-reciprocating RazorEdge blades provide cleaner cuts, which helps expedite plant recovery. An offset gearbox, positioned below the handle frame, facilitates a precise cut on the first pass. The front-facing exhaust prevents brush burning and directs exhaust away from the operator. A leaf collector helps sweep away cut material for a cleaner finish. A commercial-duty air filtration system allows for longer run times between routine maintenance. Captive tool- less access to the air filter speeds any required maintenance in the field. These hedge trimmers are also comfortable to operate. A rubber grommet vibration-reduction system isolates engine vibration from the handles. Rubber over-molded front and rear handles increase comfort. The i-30 starting system reduces starting effort by 30 percent. Both models come with a 2-year commercial/5- year consumer warranty. Echo Inc. efco's TG 2650 and 2800 XP professional hedge trimmers efco's TG 2650 XP and TG 2800 XP professional hedge trimmers were designed with power and durability in mind. With a 21.7-cc/1-hp. engine, these units make quick work of all types of vegetation. Each double-sided blade is made with high-quality steel and features tri-tip teeth for a clean cut. Both units include a 180-degree swivel handle for comfortable trimming at any angle. For operator safety, the exhaust exits over the front of the blade to prevent blowback into the operator's face. The anti-vibration system features 4 springs and 4 rubber mounts for increased operator comfort. A durable foam and cloth filter increases filtering efficiency and hours between m a i n t e n a n c e . Products by efco are engineered with Italian design and performance.
