For over 70 years, ECHO have been designing and building high performance, commercial quality products. From humble beginnings in Japan with a simple hand-held crop duster, they have grown to become a technological leader and well-respected global brand.
Over the years, power equipment brands have come and gone, but ECHO has thrived. Why? Primarily because of their commitment to quality and providing customers with the best products possible. All engines are designed to the same standard – commercial grade.
They cast and machine every engine in Japan where quality and consistency are closely controlled. And to gain manufacturing efficiencies, they assemble them at various factories around the world to the same exact standards.
With ECHO, you will always get a commercial grade engine and long-term value. Whether you are a contractor or a homeowner, you can buy ECHO products with confidence.

For over 70 years we’ve been producing durable, dependable products. It starts with engineers who under-stand the requirements of the applications and optimise performance, durability and ergonomics. They are followed by those in manufacturing who take great pride in what they do: create components to exacting specifications and assemble them into products worthy of the ECHO name.
WORLD CLASS TECHNOLOGY
To be a global leader, you need to have cutting edge technology. We use the latest materials for strength and reduced weight. Computerised design and manufacturing allow us to meet tight tolerances, providing superior fit, finish and performance. Robots work tirelessly in tandem with our skilled associates for efficient and concise assembly of our products.
The engine is the heart of our products and we control the entire process. Our vertically integrated system starts with ingots and includes casting, machining, heat treating, polishing and plating, all done in Japan. When you are famous for your engines, you don’t want to put your reputation in someone else’s hands.
RELENTLESS COMMITMENT TO QUALITY
Check, check and re-check. Prototypes are field tested for months to assure they meet demanding criteria. Parts are continually measured to make sure there is no deviation. Assemblies are tested for fit. Every engine is started and measured to make sure they perform from the first pull. There are no assumptions and there is no “good enough.”
