ECHO Brings Innovation To SALTEX

ECHO Brings Innovation To SALTEX: ECHO will be showcasing a range of new commercial products for groundscare and landscaping professionals at this year’s Saltex.

The ECHO X Series represents a line of products with performance unlike anything else. The foundation of the X Series is understanding professional needs and applying this with powerful, lightweight products designed for great productivity. Two new ‘Best in Class’ ECHO X Series products are introduced to the range.

The ECHO CS-2511WES rear-handle professional chainsaw is the lightest and most compact rear-handle in the ECHO range. Offering an excellent power-to-weight ratio, the CS-2511WES has a dry weight of just 2.6kg and the premium grade ECHO two-stroke engine produces an output of 1.1kW. The chainsaw’s compact design makes it highly manoeuvrable for users working in tight spaces and the ultra-light weight means it can be used for longer periods without fatigue.

ECHO’s latest and most powerful backback blower, the PB-8010, will be launched at the show. Built for the professional, it offers industry leading performance with the 79.9cc two-stroke engine delivering the highest blower power available, with a maximum air speed of 94.5m/sec. The PB-8010 is perfect for heavy clean-up jobs and clearing large spaces. The innovative, lightweight carbon fibre frame, with its heavy-duty backstraps, is ergonomically designed to give the user maximum control and all-day comfort.

Also featured on the stand will be ECHO’s ground-breaking high torque brushcutters, with a 1:2 gear reduction ratio, delivering up to 50% more torque at the cutting head compared to previous models. This means an ECHO high torque brushcutter can provide the same cutting performance as a larger machine, but with a smaller, lightweight engine. That also means less weight and fatigue for the operator and the potential for higher productivity.

ECHO products are manufactured by the Yamabiko Corporation, a leading Japanese manufacturer of professional-quality, outdoor power equipment for over 60 years. ECHO demonstrate their extreme confidence in their machines by offering a two-year professional warranty on their petrol and 50v battery tools.

AriensCo distribute the ECHO products across the UK through a network of authorised dealerships. To find out more about ECHO power tools, visit stand F013 at SALTEX , go online at or call 01844 278800.
