UPDATE: April 28, 2012
Ok folks, it's been 3 years since my original review and I just want to say ... my Tanaka still works like brand new!
I feel very lucky that I found this excellent trimmer. I'm sure you'll love it too.

----------------------------------------------------------------

FINALLY, a trimmer that I'm very happy with ... my Tanaka 240PF!

I tried several different brand trimmers, Sears Craftsman professional model ($300), a Ryobi from Home Depot ($167), Echo, Stihl, and a few others. I usually buy Husqvarna products, but not this time.

This Tanaka trimmer is amazing. It trims weeds as if they are made of butter with it barely running above idle! So far, I haven't needed to run it past 50% throttle! This is also the quietest trimmer I've ever used. You can actually carry on a normal conversation without raising your voice, while it's running. (if needed)

The bumper feed works so silky smooth that I wasn't sure it was feeding string at all - but it was! Because I never saw the string get shorter, I assumed there was a problem. No problem at all! I had bought the "no brainer" optional spooler, but I see no reason to use it because the standard spool is flawless.

I suppose that after experiencing past trimmers, including all the headaches, I wasn't used to a trimmer that actually works properly. This Tanaka is certainly in a different class, a commercial grade without a doubt.

Before I bought this Tanaka, I did read the other reviews regarding a few problems and complaints of it being made in China instead of Japan. Personally, I'm glad I ignored these comments.

I'm a homeowner with a large yard, both hillside and level. What I wanted was a high end homeowner/entry level commercial trimmer and that's what I got. I am very satisfied with the Tanaka. I tried out Shindawa (T242 as a matter of fact), a number of Echo's, Husquevarnas, and Stihls. For my purposes the Tanaka balanced better, and felt as light or lighter, than the others. All of which are good.

A commercial dealer told me the Tanaka's don't break down and that Tanaka has trouble making money since they don't sell that many parts. You judge.

First chance I got I put it together (btw, no shipping damage from Amazon--of course they'd cover it anyway) and took it into the yard to test on 2-3 ft grass (foxtails, wild oat, alfalfa, others) mixed with woody weeds, 1/2" average diameter. Don't know the name, but tough stuff. Leaf shaped like a geranium. The Tanaka just took them out, didn't bog down at all. When I when into some really thick stuff I had to slow down a bit. But it took it all out. Including some dead birch branches, maybe 1/4 to 1/2", I hadn't cleaned up yet.

Oh yeah. It has a 2 year commercial use warranty. 3 yr home use.

So far so good. If I have problems I'll report back.

I was a little hesitant when the description included "CARB Approved" being from California I know what that means. If the California Air Resources Board has anything to do with the way something runs it will be hard starting and run like crap. I can't tell you how wonderfully surprised I was to find out the opposite is true. It's starts easy, runs great, and has excellent power. This is my second Tanaka many years ago I left one behind in a divorce it was excellent and so is this one. One of the things I got was the no brainer string head with a precut line change being done with a simple push of a button. Just to simple and easy. Quality tools always makes the job easy.

After using the Tanaka TBC-240PF Grass Trimmer for over 2 years, it starts like it did when it was new.

I bought this a couple years ago, this will be my third summer with it. I live on 10 acres in NW Montana and have about 400 yards of driveway/road that I use this to trim the edges as well as walking through the property to take care of the noxious weeds. I got it out this evening after it sitting in the shed all winter and it started on the 4th pull - unbelievable. I have had many trimmers and none are perfect but this is as close as they come; it starts easy, runs smooth, cuts through the weeds, lasts a long time on a tank of gas - and starts easy even after sitting in a garden shed through a Montana winter.

Even in all its greatness, it is still a handheld trimmer. I think I am using it to its limits, I usually run it full throttle to cut through the thick, tall weeds and still it occasionally bogs down so I have to take it a little slow in those parts. As long as I don't get ahead of myself it works just fine.

The string that came in it was terrible, broke easy, wouldn't feed, got tangled inside the spool. I was really regretting my purchase until I ran out and put in fresh stuff, then it was like a whole new trimmer. The one thing I don't like is the way the string is wound in the spool, you have to cut off the entire piece before you wind it, which means I usually don't get enough or I get too much and end up cutting some off. Having said that, it feeds very easily and never seems to get tangled (as long as you have good string - I have not had any issues since replacing the original string).

All in all you can't beat this thing for the price, every trimmer I've had has caused some sort of headaches, but not this one - no headaches here.
