ECHO’s New 58V Battery Trimmer: The new ECHO DST-58V2AH 58 Volt battery trimmer is small, lightweight and yet packs the power of a petrol trimmer to take on the toughest jobs. No longer is there a need to store petrol, mix two-stroke and fill a tank. Simply charge and go with a powerful trimmer built to the same professional standards as ECHO’s petrol versions, which means it’s durable and built to last. Low noise, low vibration operation and zero emissions at the point of use add to the already convincing case for using battery power. There’s no more cold starting, the trimmer is clean to use and store and requires minimal maintenance due to non-wearing parts.
There was a time when battery power was not enough to tackle long grass and stubborn weeds. The ECHO DST-58V2AH comes with a 2Ah 58V lithium-ion battery which produces all the power needed to quickly cut and clear large areas. The battery can also be used with other ECHO 58V products in the new range. Run time is thirty minutes and fully charging the 2Ah battery takes just thirty minutes with the quick charger supplied. There is the option of a 4Ah battery for longer run time. The trimmer features a robust brushless motor which is long-lasting and maintenance free, which also means reduced costs on servicing to add to the savings on fuel. The ergonomic front handle design is excellent for manoeuvrability and user comfort and the variable speed control enables optimised cutting power with precision. There is a hi-lo speed switch to select output for maximum performance or a longer run time. When the trimmer line runs out the Speed-Feed 400 trimmer head, which comes as standard, reloads in seconds without disassembly.
The ECHO DST-58V2AH is ideally suited to use in noise and emission sensitive areas such as schools and hospital grounds, parks and public gardens as well as around domestic properties. The new ECHO 58V range comprises the trimmer, a hedgetrimmer and power blower, which come with the interchangeable 2Ah battery as standard, and a chainsaw and lawn mower. If you buy the chainsaw or lawn mower they come with the 4Ah battery so you would have the benefit of extra run time for the other products you might need.
