ECHO’s HCR165 ES Pro user hedge cutter has an extra long 64cm, double sided blade with laser cut teeth. Powwer is provided by a low emission 21.2cc professional grade 2 stroke engine. The double reciprocating blades provide a cleaner cut and the blades are self-sharpening because of the action of the teeth. The blades are adjustable to ensure that the perfect cut can easily be maintained.

This hedgecutter is fitted with the Echo Anti Vibe system to ensure the ultimate comfort and low exposure to vibrarion when cutting for prolongued periods. The 5-position rotating handle allows the operator to use the machine at different angles without having to twist the whole hedge cutter.

The HCR165 ES has an easy, tool-free air filter, and a large vertical filler neck to enable easier re-fuelling. Exhaust emissions are reduced with this 21.2cc engine and the directional exhaust directs the hot gases away from the hedge, eliminating discolouration of thr foliage.

Weighing in at only 5.1kg this is truly a heavy duty, but lightweight hedgecutter.

A petrol hedgetrimmer, needs to be kept sharp in order to perform. We offer a sharpening service alone, or as part of a complete annual service which we will be happy to carry out for you.Follow the link below to our service section.


Use of the correct fuel is also very important to all 2 stroke engines to ensure optimum engine life and ease of starting. The correct fuel to oil ratio for this hedge cutter is 50:1 (2%).

Only semi synthetic, or fully synthetic oils of good quality should be used. We supply Rock Groundsman 2 stoke oil which we have found to be 100% reliable.

However, the fuel mix is only as good as the base petrol and unfortunately modern petrols are very poor quality and tend to degrade quickly (within a couple of months from purchase).
This degraded fuel leads to poor starting and reduced performance. As the fuel ages it also causes the oil content to separate from the petrol which can cause serious engine damage if used.

To overcome the problems associated with todays ‘pump’ petrol we strongly recommend the use of ASPEN alkylate fuel in all small petrol engines.
