    Do a search or ask in the Tanaka forum.. I believe there was a trimmer they made up for taller people. Mark in the Tanaka forum would know which one it was..

    How long would a person need? I am 6'4" and my fs-85 is fine on length.

    are there 7' dudes in this business :confused: :laugh:

    I have hard of people buying a Tanaka Pole saw or what not and putting a trimmer gearbox/head on it. Not sure what the shaft length is on those....I would have to check. However that would be pricey to do...unless you could get it in that form directly and not have to pay the extra for the saw part of the deal.

    I just bought a Tanaka TST-218 Telescopic trimmer new in box.
    This unit is quit old (1988 or so) but boy what a serious commercial little unit.
    Not accessory expandable.
