    So did the rest of you guys that registered with them get this same offer?

    I was looking at the e-mail and thinking, "you know that is an OK deal, but.... well heck, you know, that looks just EXACTLY like that new Maruyama blower I saw, which looked exactly like that Kawasaki blower I saw at Lesco."

    I'm not speaking negatively about the blower at all....
    I just didn't realize they were all involved like that.

    Yaht's because Maruyama builds the blowers for Tanaka and Kawasaki. I save 100$ buying the Maruyama. Good blower.

    I see that too in some of the models.
    They are the same with only minor differences. (Air filters, handles, ect)

    Well I'll tell ya, if Kawasaki don't build a lot of people's blowers, they dang sure build a lot of blower engines.

    The Husqvarna's and John Deere's didn't surprise me any.
    That kind of stuff I have leared to expect of them.

    But not Tanaka or Maryuama after the way they boast about their engines.

    When I get bored, I'll compair the trimmers too. I'll bet several of them are the same thing in a different color.


    Anyways.... that was the advertisement, a coupon for $100 off the 7600 series Tanaka.
    It's not a bad offer and I like the big air cleaner.

    But I'm guessing you get your Maryuama's for about the same thing.

    I got my BL690 for 349$, save me a bunch of cash. They are all powered by Kawasaki engines, but Kaw doesn't make any blower
