Picked up a Tanaka HTD 2530 pf hedge trimmer today. Man this thing will cut through holly and boxwood like its cuttin' throught butter! Had demo's a smaller version some months back. Decided to get its big brother. Very happy! Payed 352.00 for it. Very happy with the price. Got it from a small mechanic's shop that started selling Tanaka some months back. Cranks right up and is easy to maneuver. By for now. Cordially, S.
