    I've used both trimmers, and believe the Tanakas have better power-to-weight ratio, last longer (for me anyway), and are more comfortable/compact/ergonomically designed. The also seem to be the best products out there to keep up with epa standards without going to a heavier 4mix engine design. This last issue is, I believe, the most important and telling of them all, and don't underestimate how important it is.

    No and no.

    But Shindaiwa does OFFER 4 mix type products. Tanaka doesn't as of now.

    They all have good and bad trimmers. Take a look at their whole line and see what you like.
