    I just bought a new in box Tanaka TST-218 telescopic trimmer.
    Although, this machine is quite old (1988), it is one of the most impressive pieces of power equipment I have. I have alot.
    This unit has the most rugged gearcase, clutch housing and overall ruggedness which is second to none. Black shafts, bright orange paint over beefy metal substructure. 21cc typical tanaka quality engine, bicycle type handle with strong latch hook.
    Pictures will follow. Almost makes my Honda trimmer like a Searscraftman.
    Very unique piece of equipment.
