Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by POWERHUNGRY ECHO POWER!!!
If your like me and always want the best, then this is what your looking for. Cuts like a hot knife through butter. I researched for days before I bought it. I also bought the 770 echo blower a week later. Then I got the echo chain saw the following week. My landscaping arsenal is up to date with quailty gear, I don't have to borrow from anyone. I can always count on my echo products to start right up everytime. I've owned echo for years, I still have my 20 year old echo blower that works. I needed more power for lots if wet leaves so I got the 770. You can't go wrong with echo, just get their top of the line and don't be cheap with yourself! More of everything is better, especially echo power! You will be amazed how well they work, and how much time you saved. I find myself cutting bushes that don't need it just because I'm done so fast!

Used this 30" Hedge Trimmer for the first time on a long and 7-8 ft high hedge. Was a little awkward at first but once you get used to the longer blades it seemed to do the job. Was able to reach across the top of the hedge to get at "most" of the new high growth. We'll see how this trimmer holds up to probably only once or twice a years use as time goes on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mrmike56 Great hedge trimmers
I purchased these to replace a Stihl set I had bought last summer that was very hard to start . these start up very easy . Just what I wanted ! these run great .You do have to get used to a little extra weight and the blade length but it is worth it .

I bought this machine a few weeks ago and used it for the first time this past weekend. Nicely balanced, easy starting and absolutely unstoppable in cutting very heavy vegetation. I'd buy this again in a heartbeat.

I tangled between this echo and a comprable stihl for my lawn company... happy with purchase. Works great and weight is good. I have a smaller echo that has run like a champ for over a year of commercial use. I like the shear pin release mechanism on these models... saves the trimmer if you hit something metal hidden in a bush and can be fixed on site without much down time. Thinking of buying and echo top handle chain saw as well. Echo is manufactured in US (a plus) and price is better than competion (another plus). Echo also gives a long warrany for residential use as well as commercial.

I am a home owner so I can't speak to how well this hedge trimmer will hold up for daily, commercial use. What I can say is that I have 4 other Echo lawn and garden tools - string trimmers, pole saw, back-pack blower and a brushcutter. I have had these for many years and they have all held up well - they usually start on one pull even after sitting for the winter and are easy to service when needed.
I bought this hedge trimmer because I was sick and tired of the Stihl I bought 3 years ago. Even after one season, it was difficult to start, the air filter kept falling off and I was stuck going back to the Stihl dealer when I needed anything.
This Echo trimmer is in a different league than the Stihl. It has plenty of power, starts easily, better ergonomics, and has better vibration isolation. And, if and when I need a part for it, I can go on-line and order it and not be held for ransome by the Stihl dealer.
Sure it's expensive but it is an excellent, well made product and should last for years with minimal upkeep - like the other Echo products I own.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TomH Starts easily, runs strong, ruggedly built, great machine.
Have used this trimmer several times since my purchase and have found it to be an easy starting, great running, powerful machine. It tackles 1" brush with ease. I highly recommend this equipment to the homeowner and professional alike.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by crit starts easy and runs well
This was a little pricey compared to some clippes but you truly get what you pay for on these clippers, I have had less expensive clippers and it showed in the quality.
Really cool rotating handle that will help fight fatigue when trimming.
The folks at Home Depot did great by shipping this direct to my home at no extra cost even though the store is only 4 minutes from my house.
