Tanaka TBC-2390 Line-Trimmer
Tanaka TBC-2390 Line-Trimmer
The Tanaka TBC-2390 Line-Trimmer is engineered from over 80 years’ experience of producing horticultural and forestry products. I have personal experience of using some of the Tanaka products and in my experience, they had offered great value for money and reliability. Tanaka products are made in Japan.
The Tanaka TBC-2390 Line-Trimmer really is a great engineered straight shafted strimmer/brush cutter which offers great value for money at the special offer price of £239.
The Tanaka TBC-2390 Line-Trimmer is powered by a 24 cc two-stroke engine, which then powers the straights rigid shaft to the cutter head that is mounted on ball bearings. This helps to transmit power in a very straightforward way, some strimmers have a curved shaft which isn’t the best way to transmit power.
The Tanaka TBC-2390 Line-Trimmer is very easy to work with and is lightweight, weighing only 3.6 kg. It also comes with a shoulder strap which makes it even lighter to use, and with the D type handle, it is very easy to manoeuvre in tight spaces. Personally, I very much prefer the D handle or loop handle as I find them much less cumbersome than the cow horn type handlebars. Although in general with most strimmer’s a shoulder strap is available, I prefer not to use the strap as for me gives much more freedom and manoeuvrability.
Another excellent feature with this trimmer is the availability of accessories, the Tanaka TBC-2390 Line-Trimmer can be turned into a hedge trimmer all pruning saw in a matter of seconds. These are available as extra items separately. I really like the idea of having a strimmer that can take various attachments, running off of one power unit.
The Tanaka TBC-2390 Line-Trimmer can be converted into a hedge trimmer with the Tanaka TBC-2390 Grass-Trimmer attachment. This is a double sided blade, which I would definitely recommend for hedge cutting, means that you can cut on up and down strokes. A single bladed hedge cutter will only cut one way which is very difficult if you have been used to a double sided blade. The Tanaka hedge cutting attachment pivots to 130° and weighs just 1.5 kg. At the time of writing the Tanaka, hedge cutting attachment retails at £249 but is on special offer for just £169 presently.
The Tanaka TBC-2390 Line-Trimmer also has an optional Pruner attachment. This chainsaw Pruner can be used for pruning, for example, lopping off branches and clearing thick growth. Due to the fact of the Pruner being on a pole, is ideal for reaching branches that can’t normally be reached from the ground, although care needs to be taken when this task is carried out. In all price for this pruning attachment is £199, but at the time of writing is available for £139!
