    Hi,
    I'm looking for BG 85 owners to field test our handheld blower, the THB-260PF. Send me a PM if you are interested.

    Hi, I am couple of months past your posting date but if the offer is still out there I would be willing to test your Tanaka THB-260PF against my BG 85 Stilhl. I own two Tbc-230's so I am familiar with Tanaka products and their commitment to quality.

    I have run BG55 and 85 blowers for 8 years now, needed a new one this year purchased a Echo PB-251 this season (big mistake all kind of carb problems). I would love to try the THB-260PF. I have some backpacks 751's I have to replace was looking at the TBL-7800R or the Redmax 8000 but all the problems with the TBL-7800R in the previous post I am not sure now! I have two 230's and two 260PF's string trimmers and love them, (small problem with one of the 230's called Tanaka tech and they sent me a new motor!! thats costomer service!) Thats why I purchased the 260's. Allways start second pull and ready to go, no screwing around with the choke forever trying to them them to run. Thats why I am not replacing my Echo with Echo anymore.

    I still haven't received my demo unit. Fall is almost here! I'd love to test it, but need the unit!

    Well I assume I will not be testing this unit since the season is almost over and I haven't received it. I do love my TBC-280, and maybe someday I will upgrade my BG85.
