2 weeks ago I purchased a Tanaka THT 2000 Hedge trimmer. I notoiced that the blades didn't seem to be sharpened properly (seemed to have burrs underneith the blades) so I mentioned this to the dealer. He assures me that they would be ok. After using it for about 5 hours on light work I inspected the blades and sure enough just about every cutting edge is rolled over and blunt. Is this natural? I took it back to the dealer and he said that he spoke to the local rep and he said that there was not much he could do. But if I had brought the next model up this would not have happened. So $500.00 Australian is not enough to pay for Quality?? Pretty poor customer relations I think. I was going to purchase another 2 hedge trimmers but I think Tanaka might be off my shopping list from now on. Any one else had this problem?
