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 Hedge Trimmer - California Only is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 216.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from ECHO Hedge Trimmer I bought this Hedge Trimmer about a month ago mostly because I have an old trimmer that is electric and tired after annual use in trimming bushes around our home. This trimmer is far more powerful than any electric trimmer I've used in the past, is easy to operate and does the job in more than half the time electric trimmer take to work. I have other Echo products that are likewise easy to use, powerful and are very well made and reliable. I've also seen various yard working crews use Echo products so that should tell you that Echo Products do the job and are reliable and worth buying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent quality hedge clipper. In a pinch I ended up purchasing one of these units, my Stihl unit needs a new carburetor due to it sitting with non treated mix fuel in it over the winter... thanks to my friend who borrowed them. Nonetheless I purchased these planning on repairing the others but I think I am going to just let the other unit go and continue using this one. My only complaint about the product is that it is considerably louder than the Stihl unit. But it gives a better cut on larger leaf shrubs and handles larger branches with ease. It seems to be more balanced than the Stihl unit as well making it easier to use for longer periods of time. All in all I'm glad I purchased this product and did I mention that it was less expensive than its Stihl competitor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out of the box, add fuel and go! First new Echo product I have owned. Received hand me downs from family of other Echo products and loved them. The gas trimmmer is a huge leap from the B&D electric I have used for 20 years. Power and cutting are exceptional. Very good quality of construction. Well packed and easy to use. This is not a toy so wear recommended safety gear and be aware of your surroundings. The bar is longer than what I had which is great to reduce time. However in tight areas I had to slow down and make sure to plan my trimming strokes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surpassed my expectations!!!! I bought this trimmer a couple months ago because I needed it to expand my lawn care business. That's exactly what it did!!!! Since I've bought this, it has given me more confidence to approach more clients regarding hedges. This trimmer definitely performs, there is no shortage of power and the cut quality is amazing. My 11 year old daughter even has no difficulty starting the trimmer and its the easiest piece of equipment to use and maintain. Thank you ECHO for making this product and helping me better my business.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The 5th Great Echo Product! Over the last few years I have been replacing all my 2 cycle tools with Echo. these new Echo products have proven to me that the other high priced brand names are inferior in comparison (I.E. Stihl & Husqvarna). The HC152 hedge trimmer is no exception. I can't remember ever having a non-moody 2 stroke. These engines start on the first or second pull and will start without any throttle. That is impressive! Truly no frustration work horses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use and powerful I bought this to keep mature (read:big) hollies in check. The 152 works like a champ. Easy to start and easy to use. At a steady pace of cutting it went thru all branches with ease. But do follow the manual and if new to a gas trimmer be super careful. The machine won't know the difference between a pinky finger or a branch. (And I also wear eye ear and face protection).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very dependable I always buy Echo products, have had great service from their line of weed trimmers. At the present time I'm using a weed trimmer which I purchased 9/10/2000 and it still runs fine. Now I've purchased a hedge trimmer and the quality seems to be 1st rate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid All Around Hedge Trimmer This hedge trimmer was purchased at the beginning of the year and used on a weekly basis. I trim a lot of hedges from on the ground to on top of 10 foot ladders and this trimmer does the job. Always starts right up with no issues.
