    Mark, Not to sound like a smarta$$ but I don't use tanaka products because dealers are far and few between. The closest one is in Alburtis(30 minutes) away. I have never touched one of your products becuse of this and I'm not bashing Tanakas. I read alot of good things about them. Hopefully this didn't come out wrong. Matt

    Who is your dealer? I will find out why they do not carry Tanaka.

    I prefer local dealer parts and service support. I can't wait several days for parts and I don't want to be put at the back of the line for service for buying on-line.

    My dealer treats me very well and I buy all of my equipment from him. He keeps me going no matter what it takes...that's what it's all about!

    I use 2 different dealers for mowers and 2 cycle stuff. The mower dealer sells Echo and the other dealer sells Echo and Stihl. PM me and I will give names and numbers. The closest dealer is Canns Bilco in Alburtis. Nice guys but to far. Thanks for the reply. Matt

    Parts and service. Everything mechanical will break eventually. Matt

    Canns was an excellent outfit when I lived near there. They are also a distributor for Tanaka. If you call, they will probably be able to tell you someone nearby who they distribute to.

    Now I live in central nj and Canns is still the distributor for my local dealer ;) My dealer thought it was funny that I knew who they were.
