What Customers Are Saying:
Power, baby! This seems to be one of the main buzz words swirling about this Tanaka trimmer in most customer reviews.
The anti-vibration system the Tanaka TCG22EASSLP boasts is reported to actually work – noticeably. Same with the easy start-up motor.
ALWAYS starts on the first or second pull.
A very limited number of users (literally just a few) have had issues with the fuel line but based on the number of positive to negative reviews we don’t see it likely being a problem for you. If you do run into any problems though this trimmer is backed with a 7 year warranty.
The Tanaka TCG22EASSLP has a 2-stroke engine designed to create low-emissions and low fumes. In the yardwork world, the motor behind the machine is everything and this trimmer has a lot of power. The engine runs on the PureFire commercial-grade 21CC technology by Tanaka (Hitachi owns Tanaka and they share the same technology). As noted it’s a low-emission motor and is CARB approved (CARB means it complies with California’s Air Resource Board air pollution standards) meaning you can sleep better at night knowing your weed whacker is good for the environment. It also means you can use it in California.
Another technology this Tanaka trimmer uses is the S-Start system allowing for quick start-up. Remember those days of repeated tugging on a cord that just doesn’t want to cooperate? Well buy this unit and forget about them! Seriously it’s rated to use 50% of the pull-force average units require and starts on the 1st to 2nd pull pretty much every time.
The Tanaka TCG22EASSLP uses .095 inch co-polymer trimmer line which is much thicker than most electric weed trimmers. The head holds up to 13 feet of the line and makes quick work of weeds with its 17 inch cutting radius. The line feeds easily with the semi-automatic line feeding dispenser. The head attaches to the 60 inch solid steel drive shaft allowing for trimming in small spaces. Added convenience: it only weighs 9.7 pounds meaning you can lug it around for longer periods of time and not get tired.
Note: Optional blade kit and conversion kit (not included) can be attached for bush and overgrowth cutting. Comes with a 7 year warranty.
