Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by It would not start again I purchased the PAS version of this item: the power head plus the articulating trimmer attachment. The engine initially started for 5 minutes, and then died. It couldn't never be restarted. I had to bring back to the store and reorder. Because these higher end items are not sold in the store, they must be ordered online. Therefore, I had no idea how heavy this item is. The overall balance of this 59" shafted unit is not ideal for lengthy use. August 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great but heavy I have bought all the other brands before. Now for most of my needs I will only buy Echo. This hedge trimmer works great. Always starts on the second pull. It has plenty of power to cut through most branches. It's only drawback is it's very heavy and will wear you arms , shoulders and back out. October 22, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Features but very thin drive shaft I ordered this product online and had to assemble it myself. It was difficult to line up the drive shaft in the extension rod with the drive shaft from the engine. It's very narrow and I actually chipped the corner off the square of the shaft. I finally got it aligned and it works but it should be made stronger and easier to assemble. Easy to start and cuts through hedges and branches up to 1/2" like butter. November 11, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The rotating head is great Being able to change the angle of the blades allows shifting the workload between both arms. Less fatigue. March 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great for commercial use great ajustable head, performs and starts great, easy to operate May 15, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love This Tool I have about 300' of plants and hedges around my yard. After years of trying to maintain them with electric hedge trimmers standing on ladders wearing myself out. I went to my local Mow & Saw Shop and spent some money on this professional pole trimmer. I'm so happy I did. I spend about forty five minutes trimming and everything looks sharp and straight. Not hacked up. I loved this tool so much that I have now brought the Echo string trimmer and edger combo pack. Cheers Lee October 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great products for Commercial use. We take care of many properties and the quality is second to none September 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid, Quality Trimmer Purchased trimmer with extension accessory (sold separately). Extension adds on and off easily with allen-key and screwdriver. Handles nicely. Steel peg on opposite end of clipper serves as a helpful anchor when starting, protecting blade from engaging material. Two suggestions: 1) When assembling throttle wire, depress orange throttle handle to provide necessary slack to thread wire. 2) When operating, be aware that the stop button is not spring loaded. Slide stop button back before attempting to restart. March 30, 2014
