ECHO’s range of telescopic power pruners has been expanded to include the new, lighter weight PPT-236ES.
ECHO tools, long known in the industry for their excellent Power Pruner® Pole Pruners have introduced a 21.2cc model into their range. Capturing the features that have made the original Power Pruner® range so popular with professional arborists, the new PPT-236ES offers a lower vibration, easier starting option in a true professional saw.
The telescopic shaft boasts a total reach from 2.6m to 3.6m, and thanks to its impressive design, moves smoothly and easily in any position. Locking the shaft into place is a large, single wingnut and clamp. This Power Pruner® features a large in-line handle with an attachment point for the included shoulder harness.
If additional reach is required, an optional 1.2m extension attachment is available from ECHO, to give a total reach of up to 4.8m. The inner and ribbed fibreglass outer shafts have been designed for maximum rigidity even at full extension, giving the operator more control and guaranteeing an accurate and tidy cut.
A 10” bar is fitted as standard, running 3/8 LP0.050 gauge chain for a more efficient cut, and the cutting head is fastened securely to the shaft with a heavy duty clamp mechanism and locating screw to ensure a secure, reliable fit.
An optional articulating hedge trimmer cutter head is available, which can take the place of the chainsaw cutter head to increase the versatility of the Power Pruner® and maximise your return on investment.
The 200ml oil reservoir also features an adjustable flow rate so you can customise the saw to the task at hand, and the chain tension can be accessed from the side of the cutter head. The 450ml fuel capacity gives approximately one hour of run time at maximum engine power.
ECHO’s ES-Start spring assisted starting system minimises effort required on the starter rope, and the unit has been designed ergonomically so the primer bulb, choke lever, and starter handle are all close at hand on the rear of the engine, while the on/off switch is located on the front handle, making the starting procedure a breeze. The felt air filter can be serviced without tools and includes a rubberised seal to the air filter housing, to improve the filter performance.
As with all ECHO products, the PPT-236ES is backed by a five-years domestic* and two-years commercial warranty*.
The PPT-236ES is available from ECHO specialist dealers nationally.
ECHO products are distributed exclusively in Australia by Briggs & Stratton Australia Pty Ltd.
