I bought the TBC-260PF when the transmission head on my 25 year old Stihl SF-66 got a gear tooth chipped, my bad. The Stihl was bullet proof for all the years I had it, but it would bog down when put to heavy task. It also took about 6 pulls to get it started. I probably would have bought another Stihl, but price was really up there, and I had read some very good reviews on Tanaka Power equipment. I also got my Tanaka as a refurb for about $200 off the MSRP, so I bit. The new (Refurb) Tanaka starts on the first pull. This is rare for a 2 cycle engine in my experience, and is probably due to the Tanaka's porting, and the fact that it has a primer bub, which the Stihl did not have. The 260PF is really quiet for a trimmer so that is a nice feature and it has awsome power. It does not bog down it cuts through soft stuff with no problem and I cut down some rose bushes with standard .095 line with no problem at all. As you all know rose stems are tough. One thing that is a little disconcerting about the 260PF is the sound of the clutch engaging and disengaging, which you can really hear because of the High Impact Plastic cowling which this machine has (The Stihl cowling is ALuminum) This particular model is relatively heavy for a string trimmer, but it is a commercial grade machine and not geared to a lightweight homeowner, so if you are one, get a lighter machine or invest in a harness, or support strap of some kind, because the weight will wear you out. I may be overstating this, though, as I am just 5 weeks out of hip replacement surgery, and I tire easily. So far this is a very good machine, but I will update this review as time goes on, because anything can run good for awhile, but only time can tell if youv'e got a winner. I Generally recommend that you use a 32:1 mix instead of the 50:1 mix on two strokes and add a little Marvel Mystery Oil for good measure. Your Two strokes will last forever.

Be safe, and God Bless

HASH(0xa7ba3d14) out of 5 stars Tanaka TBC-260PF June 10 2013
By Randy Christensen - Published on
I bought this unit because it had great reviews, I was not disappointed. This unit ran great right out of the box. I will say that the line that came with this trimmer could have been better. I was think about buying the Echo 225 from Home Depot, it was a 199. plus tax. I was able to get this Tanaka TBC-260PF (made in Japan, not China) Shipped for 289.00 Free Shipping and No Tax, but here's the next best thing it comes with a 50.00 Visa Gift Card. So total cost to me is 240.00. The Echo from HD would be 220.00 so for 20.00 dollars more I have a much better unit and a better warranty 7 years from Tanaka to 5 years from Echo. I would tell my friends and family to buy this trimmer. It made my decision much easier knowing I have 50.00 dollars coming. I hope this is helpful...

HASH(0xa7ba3ef4) out of 5 stars Great professional Weedwacker June 25 2014
By Eric Hooker - Published on
Verified Purchase
I previously owned a Tanaka of a similar build. The thing lasted for about 7 years, well worth the 175 we spent on the machine. This new weed wacker is much stroner, quieter than older models, uses less gas, the Padded handle is simply awesome as my hand no longer vibrates for hours on end while im on the hill getting at those weeds. its an all around better build.

The product itself is terrific, now that I finished putting it together (it was packaged and shipped without all the parts to attach the guard) and have had it correctly assembled (the cutter head had the washer installed in the wrong place and it failed to rotate.
