How much does it weigh?

Asked by: Anonymous
My newly purchased Echo 152 weighs 11.8lbs, it is somewhat heavy, but my experience is that you get the payoff in performance and durability.

Examine HC-150

I am thinking of buying this gas trimmer but I would like to see it first. I'd like to check out how it feels and look at the way its made. How can I do this without going to the hassle of ordering the trimmer?
Asked by: Anonymous
I can answer my own question now.I was in Home Depot a couple of days ago and they recieved a shipment of the HC-152 hedge trimmers. Checked out the unit and found that it was well made and looks like it would last. Only negative thing is that its alittle on the heavy side.

Can you use a pole extension on the Echo HC-152 gas hedge trimmer

Asked by: Anonymous
No, that is a whole different type of trimmer really, one that I wish I had, but will soon as it tops the lawn/land care list for me.

20 in. 21.2 cc Gas Hedge Trimmer is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 195.
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 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 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 Great purchase I had bought two electric trimmers in the pass. I burned up both motors It was also hard to trim and try to keep the cord out of the way of the trimmer my new Echo starts with the second pull The Echo has a powerful motor. It is also great that I do not have to get out the extension cords I would recommend the Echo to anyone that wants a powerful maintenance free trimmer Gary Hardin

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 Quality Product This is the first power hedge trimmer I've ever owned. I've always used hand tools for trimming jobs, but always hated it. I did alot of shopping around and research before deciding on this product. The deciding factor was really that fact that it is assembled in America, and for a reasonable price. It seems to be a well built unit, blades are razor sharp and easily handle hedge trimming work. It's a good engine, starts up very easily, and uses the same fuel ratio as my other Echo tools (which I am all very pleased with) so it's a great addition to my garage. It's easy to use and plenty powerful, I don't think anyone would be disappointed with this product.
