  1. I had been looking at string trimmers for a couple of months. My old craftsman (circa 1988) finally gave up the ghost. But everything I saw in the big box stores (the blue one and the orange one) looked cheap and flimsy in my price range (less than $200). So I decided to look around online and see what was available even if I needed to pay a bit extra for quality. I had heard about Tanaka but never considered it because my only contact was with a commercial lawn service that used their equipment. So I was looking mainly at Toro and Stihl hoping for a deal out there. A search on Amazon led to this Tanaka unit. There was very little information on the internet about it since it’s brand new.

    So how does it perform? Unbelievable! Power, power, power. The heavy brush on the lower part of our lot that I had been avoiding because of the sickly Craftsman met it’s match and went down without a fight. The engine is very smooth with little vibration. It seems to be comfortable for a while (20 minutes or so) but I’m thinking about a sling. The straight shaft puts the cutter head right where you need it. It started right up with a a few pumps of the primer bulb and then restarted on an easy half pull of the starter rope. There was a little assembly required (mounting the cutter and the handle) but Tanaka even included the tools to put it together.

    Overall I couldn’t be more pleased and would highly recommend this unit. Plus I found out after I bought it that Tanaka has a $40 rebate through the end of June so it was really a steal!

  2. The trimmer is super light and has plenty of power to knock down tall stuff and the design of the head keeps weeds from from tangling around it I even tried to make it wrap up and it wouldn’t the 60″ shaft makes a big difference in reach. And the best thing is there are minimal vibrations.

    This is a great trimmer for the money. I was very pleased with how easily it starts. Hit the ignition switch, prime it, a few pulls with the choke on, then choke off and it starts right up. his was right out of the box.

    When warm, just pull the cord – once. Beautiful.

    Power is just fine….took down some saplings and heavy weeds….edged, trimmed along a rock wall…this thing really is all your average homeowner will ever need.

    Lightweight and well balanced, it was a joy to use. Can’t wait to take on some more weeds.

  4. I own and love my ultra-light Worx, but I had let a few areas get overgrown and the Worx just couldn’t handle them. So I ordered the Tanaka and No Brainer adapter. The No Brainer won’t be here for another couple of days but the Tanaka came in today and I immediately put it to the test on the “wild” areas with the standard bump semi-automatic head.

    But first let me say that assembly was very easy and so was starting the engine. I even forgot that I was supposed to pump the bulb a few times as the first step. Still it started with only six or eight pulls. Only one or two pulls after that first time when I paused or had to refill with gas mix.

    This is a terrific weed and bush eating machine! The powerful little engine and the relatively large diameter line absolutely annihilated every challenge I presented. It also cuts a nicely wide swath.

    I highly recommend the Tanaka.

  5. The shipping from Amazon was fast. Easy out of the box and put together, filled the fuel mix, primed three time, pulled one in choke position, pulled one in run position. Ha, running quietly, no fume, no smoke, it is loud at full speed but very powerful. It is light and well balance. Hopefully it will last a long time. I will mail in for $40 visa gift card rebate. I will enjoy working on the yard more now.
