With the commercial-grade Echo RM-520ES Backpack Brushcutter at your disposal, you’ll be able to access areas that would be impossible to reach with a conventional handheld unit!

Powering the Echo RM-520ES Backpack Brushcutter is a premium 50.2cc Echo two-stroke engine that develops a beefy 2.9hp, and which employs the Japanese manufacturer’s Power Boost Tornado™ technology, whereby power output is maximised, while fuel consumption and emissions are cut.

Echo’s Easy Start system means the engine will fire-up with the gentlest of pulls on the starter rope; their provision of a roomy one-litre tank ensures very little time will be lost due to refuelling breaks.

The Echo RM-520ES boasts comfortable padded backpack straps that work with its lightweight design (12kg) and ergonomic loop-and-bar handle to minimise user fatigue during day-long landscaping applications.

It’s equipped with a high-tensile steel driveshaft, which ensures powerful, high-torque performance, and it can be used with either with a metal brush blade, or a twin-line, bump-feed strimming head, so flexibility of use is assured*.

* A choice of blades is offered; three-tooth, four-tooth and eight-tooth.

Shipping Info

Shipping Info

If you’re buying a boxed product, we aim to get your order delivered next working day – UK mainland where possible.

If you’re buying a tractor or ride-on mower – a special order item – it could be slightly longer, as we need to PDI the machine.

We do try and van-deliver these machines if we can, as this gives us a chance to demonstrate the product, and to ensure you’re happy and confident with your purchase.

If we can’t van-deliver your machine, as you’re out of our local delivery area, the tractor will be sent on a pallet via a courage company. They will then contact you directly to book a specific day and time that suits you.
