New ECHO PROXTREME 2620
Junr 28, 2016 - ECHO is redefining the performance standard for professional landscapers with the launch of its new 2620 ProXtreme series.
The new ECHO 2620 lineup includes a standard trimmer (SRM-2620), a high-torque trimmer (SRM-2620T), and a brushcutter (SRM-2620U)).
The ProXtreme Series 2620 power head, offering a combination of high power and light weight, is what makes this line-up exceptional. The newly designed 25.4 cc professional-grade two stroke engine delivers 1.35 horsepower. The weight reduction is achieved primarily by using military-grade magnesium versus aluminum. Better air filtration is provided by using a two-stage air filtration system. An insulator plate and flexible bellow-style fuel transfer system dramatically reduces heat. That system, combined with a remote fuel tank air vent versus an integrated fuel cap vent, prevents clogging and reduces re-start issues. The larger fuel tank allows for extended run time between fill ups.
The SRM-2620 and SRM-2620T trimmers both feature a solid shaft for lighter weight and quick acceleration. The SRM-2620 uses a 1.62:1 gear reduction, while the SRM-2620T features a 2:1 gear reduction. This enables 23% more torque than the SRM-2620 for powering through thick, dense ground cover and optimal performance with a cutting blade. The higher torque range of both models eliminates the need to run wide open throttle to achieve peak torque. This keeps the unit cooler and saves fuel. The units also cut 17” swaths and use the easier- loading Speed-Feed™ 400 head.
The SRM-2620U brushcutter also features a solid shaft. Gear reduction is 1.62:1. The tool-less, adjustable U handle has an integrated throttle lever and can fold parallel for storing and transport. It comes with an additional shield for blade use and shoulder harness. The blade is an optional purchase.
ECHO also offers a wide selection of complimentary heads, line, blades, and work gear to. As with all ECHO products, the ProXtreme Series 2620 products carry the standard five-year consumer/ two-year commercial warranty.
