A history built on innovation

For over 60 years, we have been designing and building high performance, commercial quality products. From our humble beginnings in Japan with a simple hand-held crop duster, we have grown to become a technological leader and well-respected global brand.

Over the years, power equipment brands have come and gone, but we have thrived. Why? Primarily because of our commitment to quality and providing customers with the best products possible. All of our engines are designed to the same standard – commercial grade.

We make no compromises. To ensure this commitment, we cast and machine every engine in Japan where quality and consistency are closely controlled. And to gain manufacturing efficiencies, we assemble them at our various factories around the world to the same exact standards.

With ECHO, you will always get a commercial grade engine and long-term value. This is our brand promise. We appreciate your consideration of ECHO. Whether you are a contractor or a homeowner, you can always buy our products with confidence.
