Unbelievably powerful- you really feel the commercial grade engine with one stroke of the machine.

Incredibly smooth engine performance –even with a higher-octane engine, it performs very smoothly and doesn’t rattle the hands when in use.

Wonderfully simple assembly- all you have to do is mount the cutter and handle with the Tanaka provided tools, and it’s done.

Easy to start-The S-start system makes it a cinch to turn on and get going. A simple pull will be easy on your body.

Great warranty- with seven years on the cutting head and two years for non-rental activities and 1 year for rental, you can ‘t beat it.

Placement of the kill switch –even though it feels great in regards to buttons, the size is a bit bulky for people with smaller hands.

Higher priced product-with all of the accolades and performances, you will have to pay a bit more than the standard products, but as they say, you get what you pay for.

Poorly constructed manual-Instructions have been reported very hard to read and understand.
