Tanaka Trimmer Field Test

Looking for a field tester for the
Tanaka TBC 260 PFL extended reach (71") trimmer.
Check it out here:
http://www.tanakapowerequipment.com/...ode=TBC-260PFL

(If that long address goes into two lines, you may have to copy all of it and paste it yourself into your browser)

We really want someone who has lots of trimming to do, so this thing can be put through it's paces.

Use it for a while -- take some photos -- then write 1000 - 1200 words about what you think and how it works.

Email me at dcassidy@mrpllc.com or you can PM me here.

Tanaka

It's ideal if you are over 6' or have to trim in ditches or down hillsides.

It is something I am going to look into. I was getting a backache when I got my last trimmer because it seemed shorter than the one I replaced. I am 6'2"

Hey how long till the review for this comes out?

I just saw the ad for it in this months issue and was trying to call around and find it....I have a guy who is 6'7" workin for me and if this could increase his productivity it would be such a great investment.

How tall was the person who tested it?
