ECHO Equipment (Canada), based in London, Ont., will be supplying a range of new power tools for student use at both the London campus of Fanshawe College and at A.M. (Mac) Cuddy Gardens. The tools will be replenished each year and will provide training opportunities for Fanshawe students. The donation has an approximate value of $ 8,000 for the current year.
Tools donated to the college include: power pruner, trimmer with pro-sweep, pro-paddle and tiller cultivator attachments, edger, power blower vac, hedge trimmers, chain saws and powered sprayers. The company is also donating three sets of safety equipment for operating the chain saws. All tools will have a wide range of use in both diploma and apprenticeship programs.
