ECHO® HC-1501 Hedge Trimmer

The HC-1501 is a 21.2cc twin blade hedge cutter. It features laser cut double reciprocating blades for long lasting sharpness, and has an effective cutting length of 499mm. 

It is lightweight and extremely well balanced, ideal for homeowners and light-use professionals. A superior directional exhaust protects both the user and the hedge from hot exhaust gases, preventing scorching and discolouration of the foliage. A vertical fuel filler neck allows for easier refuelling.
