The high-specification Echo PPT-265ES is one of the safest and easiest ways to prune trees and cut-off dead and/or dangerous branches, and will allow you to leave your wobbly old step-ladders in the shed.
The Echo Power Pruner PPT-265ES is a telescopically adjustable unit which measures an expansive 2.72m in length unextended; and 3.72m when fully extended. The telescopic shaft can be simply adjusted and securely locked by hand.
This machine is powered by a cleaning-running and impressively fuel-efficient Echo Power Boost Tornado engine (25.4cc), and has a 30.5cm no-stall chainsaw head that ensures heavy loads won’t prove a problem.
An ergonomically-mounted top handle makes it easy to control and manoeuvre; while the handgrips incorporate conveniently grouped controls, including an ‘ignition off’ switch; trigger throttle; and throttle control lock-out (which prevents accidental engagement).
To prevent user-fatigue, the shaft on the Echo PPT-265ES is cushioned and the throttle is isolated against vibration, so time-consuming applications can be completed in comfort.
The rigid, non-flex shaft has a splined fibreglass cover, which is easy to grip and ensures a firm, positive hold. It’s also much more resistant to fuel spillages than rubber.
A gear-driven oiler lubricates right to the tip of the cutter-bar, allowing the chain to run smoothly in any position; while a high-torque gearbox assures faster and more accurate cutting.
Also of note is the centrally-positioned exhaust that facilitates both left- and right-handed use.
