    I have had 2 Tanaka string trimmers. They were ok, I guess. Drive shaft splines stripped out on one and the other had the bearings go out on the cutter head. Still using one as a backup machine. I really used to like their hedge trimmers, I have owned 4 of them. The last one we bought was guttless , so we wont buy them anymore.

    Tanaka is also a sponsor on the site (or they were a little while back), if you have direct product related questions.

    I have had the same one for 10 years. Used lots and works great.

    Tanaka is decent equipment but getting parts is a nightmare!

    No dealers left in my area due to the lack of support and hard to get parts
