    My Dad uses the 3010 its a lil heavy I think but no problems just put gaskets and filters on it evry year. any other 2 stroke have some carb problems. just like my old banshee. We had it gave to us from one of our customers so that was a blessing sine we were in need of a trimmer. Its going on 5 years and mine is a tanaka 2510 going on 8 years.

    Yeah all that's true great machines we think. Amsoil is what we use for mixture. Compared to my 2510 I an feel a difference in my 2510 and 3010 of my dads.
