I´ve been using Battery Products for several years, due to requirements of the locations I often have to work. Only low noise allowed. Of course the tools were powered by heavy backpack batteries. One day my dealer next door showed me upcoming ECHO Battery Series. I was lucky to take one away for some testing as with the cartridge battery system my flexibility has been increased. I was astounded by the performance. The 50V driven hedge trimmer is more powerful than my old equipment, and the low noise impressed me. The tool is well balanced, has high quality blades which I really enjoyed working with as these are very precise and long-lasting sharp staying. After complete testing I can highly recommend this ECHO Battery hedge trimmer.
