User Voice – Gary Chapman

Gary Chapman, gardening and landscaping professional and owner of Gary Chapman Landscaping based in Westbury, Wiltshire discusses why he’s a fan of ECHO tools especially the PAS-2620ES multi-tool in the latest edition of the ECHO blog.

“I’ve long been a huge fan of ECHO outdoor power equipment in my business due to the exceptional product build quality. I have a number of ECHO products to achieve a range of gardening and landscaping tasks. I’ve never had a tool break down on me or left me experiencing downtime which is invaluable as a small business owner.

Speaking to my guys who use these tools on a regular basis, the feedback is excellent. They particularly appreciate the lightweight and lower vibration levels as opposed to other brands. As the guys are using gardening equipment almost all day, comfort and safety is paramount. Having a lightweight machine especially when cutting higher hedges and when up a ladder is so important.

I use the PAS-2620ES very frequently, naturally a multi-tool has great versatility due to the attachments I use with it but the drive unit of this machine really has superb power compared to other top brands I have used. The cutting arm is very responsive and will cut through even the thickest of hedges with ease, this is so important as we work on large estates and on large topiary. When adding the hedgetrimmer attachment it turns into a long reach hedgecutter; the topiary and hedges we cut are often of size so this is invaluable and often we don’t need to use a ladder, saving us time.

The blades are super sharp and stay sharp for long periods of time. I remember this surprised me because previous machines owned had to have the blades sharpened and some even replaced frequently! Naturally minimal maintenance is great because it means less downtime and more profit.

We have a fantastic reputation in our area for top quality work and I can honestly say that this is impart down to the ECHO tools we use. ECHO products are designed and built with professionals like myself in mind. The two-year professional warranty is also fantastic; gives added confidence in these tools”.
