Echo Tells Us About the HCA-2620S Hedge Trimmer

The HCA-2620S was built for the commercial landscaper who wants an articulating shafted hedge trimmer yet prefers a shorter length and lighter weight tool. This combo allows landscapers to trim hedges with more maneuverability while increasing their comfort and reducing fatigue.

Key Features

The Echo X-Series Shafted Hedge Trimmer features a commercial-grade 25.4 cc 2-stroke engine and 21″ RazorEdge blades to take care of the heavy lifting. These blades have 3 sharpened sides per cutting tooth for the best cutting performance available. As Powers said, “the HCA-2620S cuts through thick hedges like a hot knife through butter.”

Echo X-Series Hedge Trimmer

Perhaps an even bigger talking point revolves around the shorter shaft. The Echo X-Series Shafted Hedge Trimmer features a 33″ shaft length to keep the tool light and maneuverable. The head articulates – rotating 45º up and 90º down – giving you better control over your work. Echo has constructed the gear case from lightweight magnesium and support bar from aluminum for even further weight reduction. The end result is a hedge trimmer that weighs in at 13.7 lbs.

The Echo X-Series Hedge Trimmer also features a 2-stage air filtration system, rubber front and rear grips for operator comfort, and a tip guard to prevent accidental contact with buildings or the ground.


The Echo HCA-2620S Shafted Hedge Trimmer is available now. It retails for $519.99, and it comes with a two-year commercial warranty or a five-year residential warranty.
