I bought this model THT2100SB after reading reviews, i bought it to replace Husqvarna 325HD75 for professional use but it is not up to the standard of the husqy, bought it online and i am having difficulty getting spares as no dealers local to me. Firstly it does not cut leylandii as well as husqy, tears and bogs down as engine is too small. The rear handle drags on hedge which means you have to tidy up bits of hedge pulled out by handle. The petrol tank is far too small it only runs for approx 15 mins before fills as when on side it runs dry with half the fuel still in the tank. The fuel cap vent blocks up if used in wet weather which means you have to keep opening the cap to release vacuum. After about 150 hours use the fuel tank developed a crack next to the mounting. A further 20 hours one of the clutch spring broke. i would not buy another Tanaka, the husqy have weak bearings in gearbox but i will go back to husqy next year. i have either owned most makes of hedge cutters over the years or tried them and nothing cuts like a husqy.
