    I was wondering if a Stihl, Echo or Redmax gearbox will fit on on the 260 long shaft model? My son needs the extra lenght but I would like to be able to run a Edgit on there.

    Hi,
    Sorry, I don't know the answer to that one. You might ask Naturescape - he is the Edgit/Tanaka/Gearbox expert.

    Well I thought I had a dealer close to me, but they do not carry Tanaka anymore. Can you look and see if I have a dealer somewhat close to me? My zip is 76240. I am in north Texas, close to Denton and Dallas.

    The Echo gearbox fits my Tanaka 230 and 255PF trimmers.... I'm assuming it would fit your Tanaka as well.

    If you use the Echo gearbox, the Edgit will bolt right up to it.... no adapter necessary.

    And I DO run the Edgit on my Tanakas. Works great!

    Thank you for the info. I just bought another trimmer so I might wait till next year to see if we get any Tanaka dealers around here. I really do not want to drive 2-2.5 hours to a dealer.
