Questions & Answers

is this Hedge trimmer Echo HCA-266 assembled if ordered online?

Asked by: JROD
The only assembly required is to install the cutting head and tighten two bolts with the allen wrench that comes with the unit.

Does it cut lake weeds under water

Asked by: Wes
I would not recommend trying this. Rusted blades or water in the gearbox will ruin the tool.

Can you add grease to the gear case ?
Asked by: gear
Yes. There is a grease fitting on the side of the gear case. The instructions are very clear as to how often and how much grease to add. Have you read the instructions?

20 in. Reciprocating Double-Sided Articulating Gas Hedge Trimmer is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Commercial Product Bought mine about a month ago and have used it several times on some very large (and overgrown) hedges on various properties. Doesn't flinch. Never use the shoulder strap though, it just makes it harder to reach higher. Just bought another small echo hedge trimmer and will probably continue to do so!

I purchased this product because of the length and the Double-Sided Articulating attachment. Engine runs really well and the machine is well balanced with help from the strap. The first one that I purchased worked for 4 hours but then the hedge trimmer itself stopped working. The second one that came in only worked for 30 minutes with the same issue. Home Depot tech mentioned that it seems to be a clutch issue happening each time. I've used these in the past from different brands so I'm very familiar how to properly trim arborvitaes without damaging the hedge trimmer with thick branches.

The articulating blade was easily adjusted to any position to trim tops of a hedges and other hard to reach areas that a conventional hedge trimmer would require a ladder (too dangerous). Although the unit is heavy, adjusting the position around vertical makes it manageable. Rotating the top blade too far beyond 11 to 2 o'clock positions make it cumbersome to control. Overall, the trimmer met my expectations and is a versatile tool that offers many safety advantages by eliminating using a ladder.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Alright hedge trimmer Have had this trimmer for about 5 months and honestly It's a well balanced machine in weight and power. I do have issues with the flexibility of the machine. The angles of the swiveling head are a little too much. Also the swivel head level is in the wrong area. I'd prefer it too ba on top so it doesn't get caught with the shrub and thus giving me a nasty contact with the bush.

Only reason not 5 stars is that it's a bit of a beast to manage especially up on a ladder. Would have been a good idea to put a plastic handle on the back for extra holding. Shipping was so fast - got it next day!

It does exactly what I bought it for and the articulated cutting head is easy to adjust for cutting tall shrubbery. Now I no longer have to climb a ladder to cut the taller items.
