Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 96 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing trimmer I always do tons of research on anything before I purchase and this wasn't any different. The reviews are spot on! Literally added gas two pulls and it fired up! I have echo's weed eater, blower, and now hedge trimmer! This trimmer cut all thickneses of bushes/hedges and never let up! You will not have buyers remorse with this purchase! Got mine on sale for $261.00. Go Echo! April 4, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product is a good value! This thing rocks! I just finished beating back the brush on my one acre lot (brush on 3 sides) in less than a half hour. It was ready to use right out of the box. Gas it up and go. I swung it like a madman in thick blackberry bushes and all the natural brush that grows in western Washington and it never bogged down or stopped cutting. The blades are VERY sharp from the manufacturer and it is (like all Echo products), super easy to start thanks to the priming bulb on the carburetor. This is a must have for any property owner and I can't believe I lived without one for this long. I have an Echo line trimmer that I have had for about 11 years now and it still runs like new on the origional spark plug. After today, I am a believer in Echo products and will continue adding Echo products to my tool collection whenever the need arrises for something new. September 11, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My Favorite Tool This product is without a doubt the best tool I have ever bought. I tried manual hedge clippers, rechargeable battery clippers and electric clippers. None even came close to the Echo gas powered 20". Really, this thing cuts through dense palm tree branches, evergreen shrubs and about anything else that will fit with ease. I would warn those not in good physical shape to take it easy the first time using it. You won't want to stop and will be using muscles you might not have used in a while. That was me. The next day was tough...but you get used to it too and it is really a pleasure to use. Also be careful the first time using and cut/trim less that where you want whatever it is to be. It cuts so fast and so easy that you can end up with some uneven lines on shrubs you might want to be evenly cut. Like other things, you can always go back and cut more. This is a fine tool. Durability? Hard to say as I have only had it for a couple weeks but it looks well-built and seems to be doing just as good of a job now as it did out of the box. May 1, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Power I had an overgrown shrub in my front yard that I was dreading having to deal with.... Until I got this trimmer. I was done in less than five minutes and it looks much better than it ever has. I was able to trim all the bushes around my house in less than 30 minutes with the new trimmer. Great quality as always from Echo! October 24, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Echo Fan! Over 3 years I have gradually changed over all my cheaper equipment to Echo brand, I'd started my small lawn care business with just enough money to get used or cheap things, now with the purchase of this Echo hedge trimmer I now have a full compliment of Echo products, Trimmer, Edger, ChainSaw, the 770 BackPack Blower and now this, I cannot speak to the longevity of this hedge trimmer, but I'm a HUGE fan of Echo products and have had NO problems with any of my other Echo stuff so expect this to be a fine add on to my growing business.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Read previous reviews and it works beyond expectations Started on the first pull after following instructions. Using Truegas and not a gasoline oil mixture. Runs great and I don't smell like gasoline after using it. No way I'd go back to a battery hedge trimmer. It's obviously heavier but it sure does the job. Have used it several times and it starts right up and does it's job. First bought the Echo blower/vac about a month ago and since it worked great went with this hedge trimmer and I'm very impressed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent trimmer trimmer works great, easy to use, starts on first or second pull. June 24, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great just like every Echo product we've owned! Bought this for my husband for Father's Day. Started to go with a "cheaper" brand, but knew he had an Echo weedeater and loved it. Same with the hedge trimmers. He loves them and recommends them to everyone. July 2, 2013
