ABOUT ECHO The Essence of ECHO

The Essence of ECHO

After a hard day’s work with your ECHO tool, the only thing you need to think about is a job well done. You know
next time you use it, it will easily start and will have the power and durability you need. You don’t have to think
about your ECHO tool - because we already have.  Our philosophy is simple – to produce professional quality
products that meet the demands of the people who use them.
The Essence of ECHO is a complex story but it’s designed to make your life simple.  Here’s what goes into
every product we make:



For over 70 years we’ve been producing durable, dependable products.  The meticulous process starts with
our engineers optimising the performance, durability and ergonomics of every machine.
It’s followed by those in manufacturing, who take great pride in what they do - create components to exacting
specifications, then assemble them into products worthy of the ECHO name.



To be a global leader, you need to embrace cutting edge technology.  We use the latest materials for strength
and reduced weight.  Computerized design and manufacturing allow us to meet tight tolerances, providing
superior fit, finish and performance.  Robots work tirelessly in tandem with our skilled associates for efficient
and concise assembly of our products.



The engine is the heart of our products and we control the entire process. Our vertically integrated system
starts with ingots and includes casting, machining, heat treating, polishing and plating, all done in Japan. 
When you are famous for your engines, you don’t want to put your reputation in someone else’s hands.



Check, check and re-check.  Prototypes are field tested for months to ensure they meet demanding criteria.  
Parts are continually measured to make sure there is no deviation.  Assemblies are tested for fit.  Every engine
is started and measured to make sure they perform from the first pull.  There are no assumptions and there is
no such thing as “good enough.”


As you can see, there are many elements that create the Essence of ECHO.  Simply stated, we spare no steps
in providing the highest performing, durable products which provide long-term value for our customers.
