    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?

    Been demoing the 260 for a couple of weeks. Could definately use more power if you're going to do heavy trimming w/it. As for weekly customers it's fine. Does use the fuel though. I'm 6'3" and would love it to be 3-4" shorter. However, it's way better for me than a normal unit. I actually stand up straight which is nice after 15 years. Thanks Tanaka!

    PS Send 1 to Hayward Dist. and I'll try it out for you.
