    Let's change the subject from backpack blower recalls and talk about handheld blowers for a bit. Tanaka is gearing up for two new 2-stroke handheld blowers and we want your input.

    If you were in charge, what would the next Tanaka PRO handheld blower look, weigh, and perform like?

    like the old Stihl bg 85s, but with tanaka reliability and ergonomics.

    The case looks round, which means that you have to hold it further out from your side in order not to bruse your leg which will tire out your arms faster. Looks like an old Remington blower.

    Power etc of the BG85!
    Actually, make it the same as the BG85 but better internals!(carb etc)

    I would buy tomorrow if you could do that!
