20 in. 21.2 cc Gas Hedge Trimmer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 193.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from HC 152 Hedge trimmer I used my buddies and after that purchased my own. Great handling and super sharp. This think will make short work of any job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Trimmer But Has Room for Improvment I am using the HC-152 commercially and chose this over a other brands because other companies are giving praise on its behalf with little complaints and i have been using Echo equipment for 4-5 years. It seems to have more than enough power for any job thick or thin. It is easily controlable but it is not balanced well. If you only hold on to the handle in the middle the engine leans lower than the blade rather than staying level. This makes it feel heavier than it is and makes using it more tiresome. The down facing exhaust is often blowing fumes in my face, especially for any trimming shoulder height or higher. Other than that it is a great machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AFFORDABLE AND RELIABLE I like to take my time and research before I buy. That being said I talked with several lawn care providers, landscape maintenance professionals, and read several product reviews online about this and other hedge trimmers. the professionals are what sold me on this trimmer. They had used several different brands and told me this one beats them all. One individual has had this trimmer for 2 years and had a stihl before it that kept bogging down, not starting, and could barley keep up with his maintenance schedule. He was buying at least one every year sometimes 2. He hasn't had any complaints about this trimmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful time-saver This is the first power hedge trimmer I have ever used. Right out of the box the engine started but the blades barely moved. I revved the engine to full rpm, the blades started slowly but rapidly came up to full speed. We have boxwood edges everywhere on our property. Within 2 minutes this machine achieved results I never had with an electric trimmer. With the HC-152 your productivity will soar. The engine is excellent and restarts easily every time. And the warranty is the best among all the hedge trimmers I considered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome trimmer!! I have been using an upscale electric corded trimmer for years, and since we have many shrubs and bushes to trim, I finally got tired of dragging the cord around. I researched gasoline-powered trimmers and decided that the Echo HC-152 would be my best choice. I tried it out and found that the tool was much more than I expected. It's powerful, sharp, fast, east to start, easy to control, etc. I read some reviews and several people complained about the weight of the trimmer. I'm a 78 year old man and I had no issues with the weight. If the weight is a problem for you, maybe you shouldn't be using tools like this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Satisfied Repeat Loyal Customer I purchased my new Echo-HC-152 Trimmer about a month ago to replace my old Echo Trimmer which had provided excellent service for over 20 years. Besides using it at home, I have multiple rental properties the old trimmer always worked well and was completely dependable. Thus far I am very happy with the new replacement unit. I wouldn't use any manufacture other than Echo!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy Machine I was tired of dragging a generator and an electric hedge trimmer around the yard or multiple extension cords and decided to buy this trimmer. I am glad I did. The only problem I have with the unit is the balance. It is front heavy and I tire quickly using it, especially working overhead. The unit starts quickly and runs smooth. I would recommend this unit for purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from easy starting I had a echo trimmer for 15 years, and never changed the spark plug. It started every year. I decided to try a Stihl product that uses different attachments and also a blower. Turn out to be a nightmare. Very hard starting. Echo trimmer starts up right away. I am back to using Echo products.
