Field test a Tanaka!

Hi Guys -

I need someone to put a Tanaka Grass Trimmer/Brush Cutter thorugh its paces.

Use it for a few weeks. Take some pictures. Write 1000 words or more on what you thought.

E-mail me your COMPLETE info (Name, Company Name, address and phone number) and tell me a little about your operation.

Email me atr

Please don't forget to include ALL your contact info. I get a lot of email saying "I'd love to test that thing" but with no contact info. I need to pass the info along to the company.
