    I'm thinking that our new 27cc engine might be a better fit for the extended reach trimmer. What do you guys think?

    The TBC-260PFL retails for $429.99 and the TBC-280PFL would retail for $449.99. Anyone want to field test a TBC-280PFL?

    I would love to put that bad boy to the test. There are a couple of heavy areas that I am in regularly that would really show how that trimmer can get it done.

    That and my wife having a masters degree in education to help with the article writing afterwards should be great.....:clapping:

    Perfect. Hopefully we can prove the PFL's aren't just for tall guys.

    Also, I forgot to mention that the weight of the -280PFL is only 13.4 lbs. The -260PFL is 13.2 lbs.

    That is what I was hoping. I will be using it on banks and in a ditch.
