The Tanaka TBC230 is matched with a 22cc commercial-grade engine and comes complete with a nylon-line Tap ’n’ Go head. There’s a primer for easy starting, a very decent anti-vibration system and an effective low noise muffler. What’s more, cutting is easy on the user — just feel the weight.
“It’s a top-notch trimmer. It is extremely lightweight and manoeuvrable,” remarks the tester. “I don’t know how they have managed to trim the weight down to this and yet still provide the power to do such a good job.”
The other tester stands at over six feet. He finds he needs a longer shaft to be comfortable cutting vegetation close to the ground, but he appreciates the light weight. A bent shaft version is also available.
