I'm wondering if there are any differences from the older ones. Different carbs, etc?

Changes?

Changes to the TLE-600...

1. Scavenging ports in the crankcase
2. Optimized carburetor setting
3. Small catalyst in the muffler

As a side note, I use my Tanaka edger for bed edging as well, on established beds of course. I've seen other lawn services looking at me with a puzzled look, but noticed at least one of them trying it. Their only drawback was they didn't have a Tanaka, which is nimble enough to really follow the curves!

I just bought one (see brain 2000 post) i really like it, I'm just mad my TLE-550 only lasted 12 year (kidding of course-that thing was a tank it was 12 years of abuse and hard knocks for it and it ran tons of hours...i sold it still running and as far as i know its still being used)

I just picked up a used 550 for 275. Very clean probably had about 15-20hrs on it and came with a dozen blades. Price seemed good especially when the new 600 are 800.

I will use both this and a stick edger for cleaning up bed edges and sidewalks, etc..

Is there anything I should look at repairing on the Tanaka in the field or are really that strong?
