Echo invited a collection of its User Advisory Group members and media for its annual 2023 Echo Media Summit, “Power Up and Power On,” held in Lake Zurich, Ill., on Sept. 22.
The company showcased a staggering 21 new products for the landscaping contractors. Save for four backpack blowers and a chainsaw, the majority of the line is powered by Echo’s brand-new 56V Battery on their eForce series.
According to Wayne Thomsen, vice president of marketing and product management at Echo, the company continues to innovate and adapt as the world shifts toward increased battery-powered tools and serve landscaping professionals.
Part of that is the launch of the new products on its new battery solution.
“We’re pleased to be launching the expanded range of X Series 56V best-in-class products, now offering landscapers a commercial-grade battery option within every product category of Echo’s portfolio,” said Thomsen.
Thomsen adds that the company is not turning its back on the pros that prefer gas-powered tools while the demand for battery options grows.
“We're focused on delivering reliable, high-performance dual technology for the professional landscaper,” says Thomsen.

In addition to 21 new products for the outdoor power equipment professional, ECHO also launched a brand-neutral, online community dedicated to helping professional landscapers, arborists and other grounds maintenance professionals grow their businesses.
Named Echo Means Business, the website contains seven years of educational video content, all curated by green industry pros, with new videos being added on a regular basis.
