    I've now got 3 field test reviews on the Tanaka forum - 2 trimmers and 1 hedge trimmer. Is anyone interested in testing the TED-262R drill w/ bulb planting bit, the TIA-340 one-man auger, or TCP-210 pump?

    Mark, what are the specs of the pump. We are doing a hydroseeding job next week, and would be interested if it's capable of our needs. Thanks for the networking to Cans-Bilco, Tom is meeting with me next Monday. I wonder if he has this pump as well?

    The one man auger....whew. Helped Mike put up a privacy fence - had to dig 20+ holes, 2 feet deep, rented a one man auger and it kicked our butts - meaning the two of us ran it at the same time...roots, concrete, and clay didn't help. Questions is can one person run your one man auger smoothly or is it truly a machine that requires 2 people...and so you realize Mike is 5'11, 205 lbs, and I am 5'9 250 lbs, both of us in pretty good shape.

    I could have used the bulb planter last week.
    I'd like to try out the auger as I'm in the market to buy one.I'll buy it if it performs well in clay.

    Good to hear you made a connection with Tom. I will let him know that you would like to see the pump.

    The TIA-340 is truly a one-man machine. We used to offer a 2 man auger, the TEA-500.

    What brand of the one-man kicked your butt?

    I need an auger so bad!!! I have 300 junipers to put in about 2 weeks from now. I would love to test yours.
