Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ManofCourage777 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 1.0 out of 5.0 by Toms Don't believe the warranty
Bought this trimmer for the 5 year warranty .Had it 18 months and it would not run ,only idle. Brought it to a Echo repair center and was told Echo would not warranty it. They said ethanol in gas caused the problem. The warranty says no more tan 10% ethanol which I abided by! used echo oil and fuel stabilizer. I called Echo and was told the same thing. The new type carburetor used is almost impossible to rebuild. Brought it Home Depot and was told they would send it out and if repair was over 100.00 they would call me for authorization to repair. Don't buy it for the warranty.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brer fox Plenty of power!
I have several pieces of Echo equipment. My latest is the HC-152 hedge trimmer. The unit does a great job with plenty of power. It is lightweight and well balanced to make trimming easier on the operator. The best feature of the trimmer as well the other Echo tools: they start!

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 5.0 out of 5.0 by JeffM83 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.
