    I posed the question looking for some advice in the Commercial Lawn forum, but wouldnt mind having you weigh in for Tanaka, as I have been considering them as a likely candidate for future equipment purchases. I have an employee who is 6' 6" tall, and obviously needs a longer than average trimmer shaft for someone his height. I currently have Shindaiwa T230 and T231 trimmers, and he is hunched over when using them. Does Tanaka have a solution for this problem, or a trimmer with a longer shaft than the Shindy's?

    Our technical service department just completed mocking up a TBC-2501T that we would like you to try. It has a 70" shaft (the same as our pole saw) and weighs just 12.2 lbs.

    Send me an email with your shipping info and we we will get it out to you. woodlingm@tanaka-ism.com

    Its pretty darn cool that you guys built this trimmer. I'm 6'3" the Shin is a bit short, this may be a bit long, but def something to think about. Hey, Tanaka should come to Canada. I know you would ship here if I wanted one and will consider it. Nicely done.
