Iv'e never tried Tanaka but have heard good things about them. I always had good luck with Echo so i'm like if it's not broke don't fix it... Some guys on here had bad luck with exhaust clogging up on them and stuff but i just stick with Echo's 2cyl synthetic blend and everything has worked out great.
My oldest trimmer is now 5 years old, it still runs good just thought it was time for an upgrade.

Just picked it up.. To early to tell but I think it will do just fine for me. Just for lawns that the Viking might be a little to heavy for.. That thing pulls great & I really like it. I think a lot of guys who have had problems with them were trying to replace a 36 wb or use it as there primary mower.. Awesome machine to me...
