    i THINK i have narrowed it down to these two brands. Any thoughts? Which redmax model do you recommend? I RARELY attached a brush cutter. I just want a reliable commercial grade trimmer. ALSO ANY PLACE ON LINE TO BUY THE REDMAX? ALAMIA HAS THE TANAKA.

    TANAKA TBC 230 or the Tanaka tbc 2500 vs. redmax bcz2400s or redmax bcz2500s. What are your thoughts on these. My tanaka has lasted over ten years but i hear a lot about redmax. But since i buy one every decade, i want to make sure i buy the right one. Thanks

    I have many commercial trimmers and edgers by RedMax, Stihl, Echo and Mariyuma(sp?) and I personally by far prefer Echo Commercials.

    Good to hear your Tanaka has lasted over 10 years. I won't try and sell you on the TBC-230 or TBC-2500, you need to hear it from the guys who are in the trenches on a daily basis. However, we would really like to keep your business and look forward to communicating with you and all of our Tanaka customers more frequently moving forward.

    FYI - We are currently running a promotion where you would get a free Tanaka accessory kit with the purchase of a TBC-230. More info is available in the Tanaka forum


    P.S. Check out the new Tanaka Web site at and sign up for our enewsletter, get a free catalog, and more.

    Echo works for us too. You need to stay with a brand that has good service and parts support. Look at the best commercial dealers in your area and see what lines they carry. That will give you a good idea of what to buy. You need local dealer support. It's important.
