    Sorry Joe, This IS one time I'll disagree w/ you. If you run W/b edgers, the shaft drive tanaka IS THE BEST. I've used Little wonder, McClane, Scag & Powertrim. Top-Bottom= Tanaka Powertrim/Scag, LittleWonder then McClane. Sorry, just calling it like I see it!!

    I've had a Mclane for about 7 or 8 years now. Not bad, I think a shaft drive would be nice though.

    But...i plan on purchasing a Tanaka as soon as possible.
    I was a CATV lineman for over 20yrs and we used your gas powered drills......I saw them with broken handles,bent bits,duct taped gas tanks,crushed housings, dropped from 50ft,highway skids at 70 mph.....you couldn't kill those things!

    The parts issue was always a pain though.

    Still.....a great tool!
