Avoid
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

Timothy,
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.

Don't Flood It
Does a great job. Very light, but be careful not to push the primer button more than 2 or 3 times. I flooded the darn thing right off the bat.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight, Price

Making The Cut
I had been looking for a lightweight professional replacement for the discontinued John Deere trimmer I had loved for years. This trimmer is powerful and lightweight and very similar to that trimmer.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight, Price, Durable

Best String Trimmer I Have Ever Owned
I've been in the lawn maintenance business for 25 years in North Jersey. After years dealing with Echo, I switched to Red Max. The Red Max was great for 1.5 years, then nothing but trouble. I bought the Tanaka in September of 2015 just to finish the season, and I was going to get something else at a pre-season sale. For 200 bucks, I didn't care.

This machine is so light, its like a baton. Never a problem: just simple spark plug, fuel filter, replace head. Love it. Absolutely great. 60 lawns... more

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

Nice Trimmer, Vibrations At Low And Medium Throttle,
For two hundred bucks so far I can't complain starts and runs good, light compared to my other trimmers,
Only complaint is when not running full throttle it does have vibrations but go away once high speed is reached. Hope this review helps. I'll call company and see if they recommend a fix and post later.

Definately Top Of The Line Trimmer.
Great product but the on/off switch is in a bad location. I'm using twice as less fuel than my other wackers. Starts very easy and not once have I got tangled in tall weeds.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Light Weight, High Quality, Quiet
