Tanaka Launches Two New Straight Shaft Trimmers

by Abby Levy | Oct 24, 2012
Tanaka Power Equipment today announced the launch of two new straight shaft grass trimmers, the TCG24EASPSL (23.9cc) and TCG27EASPSL (26.9cc) to further diversify its well-established suite of OPE tools and accessories. Powered by Tanaka’s PureFire® low emission commercial grade two-stroke engine technology, these trimmers feature Tanaka’s industry leading 7-Year Consumer Use, 2-Year Commercial Use and 1-Year Rental Use Warranties for even more piece of mind.

The TCG24EASPSL straight shaft trimmer features a powerful 23.9cc engine that delivers a maximum power of 1.1 HP. The fuel tank capacity is 14.6 fl. oz and it weighs a mere 10.1 lbs without cutting equipment. The TCG27EASPSL is more powerful, equipped with a 26.9cc engine that delivers a maximum power of 1.2 HP. This straight shaft trimmer holds 17.6 fl. oz. of fuel in its tank and weighs just 10.8 lbs without cutting equipment.


Both trimmers are equipped with commercial grade PureFire engines, providing powerful performance. Tanaka’s PureFire series achieve lower emissions and lower fuel consumption, therefore less carbon dioxide exhausted when compared with traditional engine products. They are environmentally friendly and suitable for prolonged use- rated to 300 hour EDP (Emissions Durability Period) as defined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Starting the trimmers is fast and easy with Tanaka’s S-Start pull force reduction system. Expect an increase in productivity due to the instant throttle response. With lightweight designs, both trimmers deliver greater balance for less fatigue and better maneuverability. The trimmers also come equipped with durable covers to protect the fuel tanks from wear and tear and prolong tank life. The drive shafts measure extra long at 60” on both for extended reach, and are constructed of splined solid steel for better performance and durability. Vibration is reduced due to heavy duty sleeves for even more comfort during use. Both the TCG24EASPSL and TCG27EASPSL include 4” semi-automatic cutting heads for convenience.


Tanaka’s outdoor power equipment line comes with an industry leading seven year consumer use warranty, two year professional use warranty and one year rental use warranty. For more information on Tanaka products and support, please contact 1-800-706-7337 or visit www.tanakapowerequipment.com.
