ECHO has introduced a new hedge trimmer, the DHC-200 to its 50V lithium-ion battery series.
“The ecological features of the new DHC-200, as with all the ECHO lithium-ion series products, offer contractors and professional landscapers exceptional benefits,” says ECHO.
“The low noise makes them suited to use in noise-sensitive areas such as schools and nursing homes. Low emissions are beneficial in their use in parks, nature reserves and organic gardens.
” It is described by the company as lightweight and comfortable to use, due to the ergonomic design of the front handle which helps with manoeuvrability. They also say gardeners trimming ornamental hedges can count on the variable speed control for precision cutting and optimized run-time. The 62cm double-sided precision cut blades provide a clean cut with a long-lasting sharpness. The machine uses energy efficient motor controls to manage motor speed, power delivery and battery temperature for improved cutting performance and battery life.
The DHC-200 comes with a 2Ah battery and rapid charger as standard, with an optional 4Ah battery for a longer run time. The rapid battery charger ensures the 2Ah battery is boosted to 80% capacity in 24 minutes and the 4Ah in 48 minutes. It comes with a two-year professional use and five-year domestic warranty.
