ECHO Inc. has announced the addition of two new product categories to the brand portfolio, and dealers are likely going to be impressed by the manufacturer’s latest offerings: wheeled trimmers and chipper/shredders.
These products are essential tools for landscapers, farm and ranch owners and various agricultural applications.
“It’s an exciting time for ECHO, as we continue to expand our categories and offer innovative solutions to end users. Like all our products, the new wheeled trimmers and chipper/shredders are built to be durable, powerful, and reliable tools that get the toughest jobs done quickly and efficiently,” said product manager Jason Wilk.
Both the wheeled trimmers and chipper/shredders come with a three-year consumer warranty and one-year commercial warranty.
ECHO Wheeled Trimmers
Key applications for the walk behind wheel trimmers include cutting dense weeds and mowing tall grass, with five times more power than a handheld trimmer. The heavy-duty, commercial design allows for easy and convenient trimming along retaining walls, fences and other tight areas. Large 16-inch diameter wheels are designed for smooth maneuverability over rough terrain, while an extra-wide 24-inch cutting swath, coupled with ultra-heavy duty .155-inch Cross-Fire trimmer line increases cutting performance and efficiency.
ECHO has three wheeled trimmer models to choose from:
• WT-1610: 163cc Briggs & Stratton engine. MSRP $559.99
• WT-1610T: 163cc Briggs & Stratton engine with the ability to tilt the deck, allowing the operator to efficiently cut hard to reach areas. MSRP $699.99
• WT-1610HSP: Self-propelled model with 160cc Honda engine and 3-speed transmission. MSRP $999.99
The three new chipper shredders are compact, powerful, and loaded with heavy-duty, professional features. The thick-gauge steel chipping and shredding hoppers handle material ranging from light brush to large branches. The chipping hopper, with razor-sharp, heat-treated blades mounted to a heavy-duty flywheel, can chip branches up to 3 inches in diameter.
Additionally, the shredding hopper contains free-swinging shredder blades that can pulverize lightweight material up to ¾-inch thick and handle other garden waste. All three models feature convenient, flat-free tires and handles for easy transport.
