Down here in Central florida Gulf Coast we dont use Tanaka products but I hit a yard sale today and bought an unusual three wheel gas 2 stroke edger . It's looks hardly used and must have been kept inside no rust and great shape and runs good as well. I am basically sold on my stihl stick edgers and not really sure of the advantages if any of the Tanaka 3 wheeler other than saving my arms on the big commercial properties . I did a Goggle search and see that it is about 800.00 bucks new and is replaced by the THE 600 model . I guess what I am looking for is benifits gained by this wild looking tool.
