Greg Francis, professional gardener explains why he chose the new SRM-2620TES High Torque brushcutter and after daily use for the last month he’s confident he made the right choice in the latest issue of the ECHO blog.

After using another make of strimmer for the last 5 years I was in the market for a new machine. Having bought ECHO leaf blowers and hedge cutters and being really impressed by them, I naturally looked at ECHO’s range of High Torque brushcutters. After a bit of research and trying a few machines including a demo of the 2620TES via my local dealer, I concluded that the SRM-2620TES was the machine for me.

I’ve been using it every day for around a month now and I’m satisfied with my purchasing decision. The engine has plenty of power for the various lawns that I cut on a weekly or biweekly schedule. I was particularly interested in this model as I knew it was part of the High Torque range. I certainly had a lot of torque and I could cut thicker brush without it clogging or losing power. The machine is also very reliable and comfortable. During the spring months, I’m strimming for prolonged periods of time, so need a machine that is relatively lightweight and ergonomic.

I would highly recommend the SRM-2620TES high torque brushcutter to anyone regardless of whether it’s for domestic or commercial use. It really is a great machine!
