TANAKA ANNOUNCES COMPLETE DETAILS ON THE RETURN OF THE WORLD’S FIRST-AND-ONLY SHAFT/GEAR DRIVEN WALK-BEHIND EDGER

AUBURN, WA (September 20, 2005) — Tanaka today announced that the world’s first-and-only shaft / gear driven walk-behind edger will return to the lineup as the TLE-600. The suggested retail is $799.99 and it will be available to purchase from authorized Tanaka dealers beginning the first week of February 2006.

Other than featuring an optimized 50cc, 2.5 h.p. Tanaka two-stroke engine, the other components of the unit remain the same as the previous model, TLE-550. Main features include a 10.5mm, solid steel drive shaft; heavy-duty, two-stage air filtration system; hand lever activated height-adjustment system; large, rounded front wheel; and optional drop wheel / curb riding kit. The TLE-600 complies with EPA emissions standards, but will not be available in California.

Tanaka will be displaying the TLE-600 at the Green Industry Exposition (GIE) in Orlando, FL, November 3-5. Attendees will be able to demo the unit as well as enter to win the very first production unit when it arrives. End users can go to www.tanaka-usa.com and sign up to be contacted by Tanaka when the TLE-600 is available for purchase in their area.
