    Has any one ever used heard of or had any experience with these machines. My Hustler dealer sells these but have never used nor seen anyone use them. Is there a good reason for that.

    A friend of mine bought a Tanaka trimmer well over 20 years ago (home use) and it's still going strong.......

    I run them, good trimmers never once failed me in two years. Buy the bigger powered engines tho i got the 230's and I wish they had more power.

    I have bought many Tanakas and other brands over the years. The Tanaka hedge prunners are the only ones we will buy now. Bought 2 of the 230s string trimmers last year and 2 more this summer. We love them, super light for packing around on those large all day properties. Plenty of power for trimming the lawn, not enough for cutting big weed patches. We got the big power units for that.
