CHICAGO – ECHO Incorporated recently announced the launch of the HP-42, a hand pruner designed to help increase yields for hydroponic growers. The HP-42 is the lightest and most user-friendly precision-cutting hand pruner in the ECHO line-up.
“When done properly, pruning eradicates any excess green tissue, which leads to an increase of the plant’s energy, ultimately resulting in higher growth; it’s a key component to increasing yields,” said Product Manager Jason Wilk. “The new ECHO HP-42 precision snips deliver the cutting and versatility needed in a wide range of cutting applications, season after season.”
With a stainless-steel blade that cuts up to half an inch, the HP-42 is ideal for precise trimming and thinning of stems, buds and flowers. The double-beveled, tapered tips are designed for fine pruning, while the comfortable non-slip rubber grip and lightweight composite handle allows for added comfort and strength. MSRP is $9.99.
