    I'll comment. Actually, there was a thread not too long ago about your equipment. We have the walk-behind edger, stick-edger, string trimmer, 2 hedge trimmers, extended-reach hedge trimmer,and the shred-n-vac unit. We (knock on wood) haven't had a lick of problems with any of the equipment. Always starts, always runs. As far as performance, all the commercial equipment works about the same. Every employee has their favorite as well. I would imagine you'll hear good and bad on this site. Just the nature of it.
    Have no reason not to purchase your equipment in the future. Our dealer carries it and whatever they carry, we buy.

    OK...my first post didn't post...hmmm

    Anyway what i asked was about any new blowers in the works to compete with the Redmax 8000 and the new shindaiwa that will be about the same size? i am in the market for a new blower and am partial to Shindaiwa but i am open to trying a different brand. My dealer also carries Tanaka so i wouldn't be too worried about dealer support if i don't care for it. Thanks

    Joplin Mower,
    Thanks for your interest in Tanaka. At this time, our largest blowers are the TBL-7600 and TBL-7600R. What are you looking for in a big backpack blower that Redmax and Shindaiwa don't offer?

    Welcome to the site.
    I'll enjoy visiting you're forum. I must admit though, about the only thing I know about Tanaka is that y'all made a edger quite a few years back that was second to none. How 'bout that bottle :blob3:

    I was looking for something that was comparable to the Shindaiwa and Redmax. Something that is approx. 72 cc or so. Thanks

    so why is tanaka better than shindaiwa or redmax? what would give me an advantage. right now I have all shindaiwa's but I'm very interested in your trimmers.

    I tried on of my friends out and he really likes them. how are they priced as far as parts go?
