ECHO’s New Class Leading Trimmer Series Poised to Take Over the 30cc+ Market

Posted by AcreageLife on Aug 2, 2018 10:36:51 AM

 Professional landscapers and right-of-way crews who demand top engine and cutting performance now have the ideal choice in hand held equipment - the 30.5cc ECHO X Series SRM-3020.

The SRM-3020 trimmer, the SRM-3020T high torque trimmer and the SRM-3020U brushcutter were specifically designed to cut thick grass, heavy weeds and small saplings, making them ideal choices for maintaining parks, preserves, embankments, ditches and overgrown areas.

The ECHO X Series SRM-3020 trimmers and brushcutter offer category leading 1.8hp two-stroke engine performance along with a 20 inch cutting swath that increases productivity over competitor models. This translates into a 17% larger swath and double digit improvement in cutting torque over closest competitors. Coupled with professional-grade features such as a large pleated paper air filter plus a foam prefilter, chrome cylinder plating, a two-ring piston, and exceptional hot restart ability due to its bellow-type intake, the SRM-3020 power head offers the performance that professionals demand.


The gear ratio for the standard trimmer and brushcutter is 1.62:1, with the high torque trimmer using a 2.07:1 gear ratio for heavier duty applications. All models have a flex cable drive for the optimal performance and low vibration. Each model uses the popular Speed-Feed® 450 trimmer head and is covered by a 2-year commercial/5- year consumer warranty.

“The introduction of the SRM-3020 once again demonstrates ECHO’s commitment to providing the best quality and highest durability products for professional users,” says Wayne Thomsen, Vice President - Marketing & Aftermarket, ECHO Incorporated. “In a league of its own with category leading engine performance, the SRM-3020 sets a new industry benchmark.”

With the introduction of the SRM-3020 products, the ECHO X Series includes a full range of category leading models. The X Series designation identifies for professional users ECHO’s most powerful, lightweight and most productive products.
