Product arrived in an un damaged box as I was worried about handling during shipping, so this was a plus. Instructions where okay, but was easy to figure out what goes where and required little assembly with included tools.

The control handle cannot be tightened enough to keep it still with out stripping the screws. The air filter cover was loose and appeared to have a broken plastic clip. It fell off during first use only to find that the entire filter/fuel priming bulb/choke was cracked... more

If your purchased arrived damaged, it would of been best to contact us as soon as possible. As long as the trimmer engine was not gassed/oil, we would of resolved the issue for you.

A Quality Trimmer
I bought this trimmer because of past experience with the Tanaka brand. This is the first straight shaft trimmer I have owned and I personally believe the curved shaft is easier to use.
This trimmer requires several pulls to get it started and the string does not feed out with the bump very easy. Overall for the money it is a nice trimmer.
Pros: Light Weight, Price
Cons: Difficult To Use, String feeder, Straight shaft

Very Powerful Weed-whipper !!!!
Very skeptical about the reviews I read on this unit, However, I am impressed with the amount of power this unit produces with tall grass... Excellent!!

It starts easily, light weight and manageable the head doesn't get tangled in tall grass, and it even sounds powerful.

The only disappointment I have is that it holds very little string and changing the string often tends to be a pain. I have to maintain 2 acres of un-mowable grass and this has cut down my weed whipping time by 2/3.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations

Not A Commercial Or Heavy Duty Unit
I mowed lawns to pay for college. That was years ago. I had 2 Echos of the same model: 21cc (XXX-2101 if I remember correctly...) Those were high-quality home-owner models.
This Tanaka feels about how I remembered those units save 2 improvements: the solid shaft and the lower weight, I do like these features. I also feel the quality of the unit is pretty good. Starting is a breeze. Because of the weight, I can trim without much fatigue. Vibration is low, noise is low. I can easily recommend... more
Pros: Light Weight, Easy To Use, Quiet, Easy To Store
Cons: Miss represented as commercial unit, Low power, For User 5'-8

Holds Up To Help!
Run a LLC lawncare. Best 7-14 day cut trimmer. Because if you run a lawn care your not cutting waist high weeds every week. NOT FOR CLEARING BRUSH. Trimmer head changed to Tanaka "no-brainer" actual name. The Quality is not that of a 400 dollar stihl. but neither is the price or weight. Guys like because end of day its light and easy to start. Cheap 150 dollar hand held blower is also good. Previous tanaka trimmer purchased 3+ years ago is in use as well. Has had on off switch... more

As Advertised
Been using this for about 2 weeks it's everything advertised and more. Easy to start, pretty lightweight, very easy to assemble and it's strong enough to cut through anything that gets in its path. It may be the angle that I'm using it at however the shield around its head doesn't seem to provide enough protection for me. The free safety glasses included do pick up the rest
Pros: Light Weight, Easy To Use, Exceeded Expectations, Quiet

Good Solid Trimmer
I use mine around the farm and it works very well. I purchased the saw blade for it so it would cut big weeds. I have burned about four or five tanks of gas thru it and have no problem yet. Even my wife can start and use it. It is well balanced and I don't have as much fatigue as others I have used. So far so good.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight, Easy To Use, Price

Good Replacement
My Redmax went down after 17 tuff years and I tried a Murray weed eater and it couldn't do the job. I went on line and came across this Tanaka weed eater and it had the solid steel shaft like my Redmax did and I decided to give it a try. As of now, I'm glad I tried it. I didn't give it a 5 star rating on performance, because I haven't put the weed cutting head on it yet to see how well it can handle the tuff stuff like my Redmax did.
Pros: Light Weight, Easy To Use, Features, Easy To Store
