    Hey Mark,

    Hi,
    The last year it was in our program was 2004. The MSRP was $389.99

    Was there any "issues" with this unit? Why was it dropped?

    Hi,
    The -270PF PureFire engine had run its course. It was certified to C.A.R.B. Tier II all the way back in 1998!

    Tanaka is currently working on a new optimized 27cc PF engine for next year. Ask around - people love that engine on pole saws, pole hedge trimmers, trimmers, edgers...

    It is one heck of a good edger. The 270 just powers through the dirt . Plus, it is frugal on fuel usage.
