Tanaka TCG22EABSLP Review
If you are not familiar with the name Tanaka, it is one of the brands within the Hitachi Power Tools Group. This is Tanaka’s best selling model for grass trimming and brushcutting. It features a great 21.1 cc low emission, carb compliant, commercial grade, 2-stroke Purefire engine which provides excellent reliability and high quality performance.
The unit features a very effective heavy duty vibration reduction system which is really effective in helping to reduce operator fatigue.
It is so easy to start with the S-Start feature which reduces the amount of force required to start the engine with the pull cord.
The Tanaka TCG22EABSLP is only 9.7 lbs in weight but don’t let that fool you into believing you are not getting a real workhorse! It has an excellent power to weight ratio. The 60” solid steel drive shaft provides very efficient power transfer from the engine to the 4” semi-automatic cutting head which is straightforwardly easy to use and trouble free.
This is a commercial grade product for a domestic product price and it is backed by a seven year consumer use warranty.

“Man, oh, man. This string can tear through some grass, weeds, brush, ivy, or whatever you can throw at it. I am using an Echo trimmer and had been using the line provided with the Echo when I bought it. What a difference! My trimmer was eating everything in site and it was even quieter than before. Get this stuff!”
