There is another review here by "Jimbo", who was right, He Says "For the price just buy it do not think about it, no regrets at all."
I'm tough on my tools and Equipment, but I'm serious about superior Maintenance. I had a Ryobi commercial Straight shaft B30 Weedwacker last 6 years and it was a poor performer(designed to last 2-3 Yr.s) I wanted a grass trimmer and a weed wacker that was a strong performer that would last. I shopped thoroughly and tested a STIHL FS 90 R and a HUSQVARNA 224L - Both Great trimmers but ~ $380 investment to get them into your truck. The Tanaka TCG31 was an agile performer at trimming all heights and types of weeds (and I pushed it!, thorn bushes etc.)
As a Brush Cutter it when through over grown fields nicely - big thorn bushes to 1.5-2" sapplings. I've only used it for about 45 hours, but because of the 5 day money back Gaurentee - it was an extreme 45 hours (70% heavy brush cutting) - and beside the blade getting all bent up at the tips, the machine wasn't even phased.
Great Value at $200 - and it seems as though it is built to last, which I hope it does! and think it will if the warrenty is any indicator...
This is the first gas powered trimmer I've used. It starts easy(1 to 3 pulls) and does a great job.
Easy assembly, took me about 10 min. to put it together, started after 3 pulls, has a ton of power. Will recommend, great tool.
