Echo claims its new HT-58V2AH offers petrol performance from a battery-powered hedgetrimmer.
The company says the 58V unit has the same professional build quality as its petrol models and the power the lithium-ion battery-powered motor produces is equal to a petrol model’s output.
The hedgetrimmer is lightweight, has a runtime of 90 minutes and comes with a quick charger to help reduce down time. The standard 2Ah batter y is fully charged in 30 minutes and the batter y powers a brushless electric motor. The machine features an ergonomic front handle for greater manoeuvrability and user comfort, with low vibrations.
Echo says the 610mm double-reciprocating, precisioncut blades offer a cleaner cut , regardless of the angle, and are self-sharpening due to the action of the double-sided cutting teeth. Anti-jam technologyensures continuous cutting. The extended reach of the blades reduces user effort and the need for frequent repositioning.
The unit is part of the new 58V range which also comprises a lawnmower, chainsaw, power blower and trimmer, with two battery types: 2Ah or 4Ah for greater runtime. The hedgetrimmer uses an interchangeable lithium-ion battery system which enables one battery to fit multiple tools.
