TMC Power Equipment Introduces the KPW2950V Line Trimmer

Filling out the line of powerful and dependable TMC line trimmers.

MONTEREY PARK, CA - TMC Power Equipment, Inc. announces the release of the KPW2950V line trimmer to authorized TMC dealers and distributors at a suggested retail price of $379.95. The KPW2950V combines a 29.5cc, 1.4hp Komatsu Zenoah two-cycle engine that meets 2005 EPA air quality regulations together with a 7mm solid steel drive shaft and heavy duty, four-bearing encased gear head, for powerful and reliable performance in a multitude of applications.

“The KPW2950V addresses customer and dealer demands for a mid-level line trimmer for both general purpose use and occasional brush clearing,” said Dean Kanemitsu, president of TMC Power Equipment. “It also does so with a true two-cycle engine that meets the stringent 2005 EPA air quality standards, resulting in lower maintenance and operating costs and easier serviceability, key considerations for all professional operators.”

The 29.5cc engine on the KPW2950V incorporates key commercial quality components like a dual-ringed piston, chrome plated cylinder, and forged iron crankshaft. In addition, by keeping unburned fuel from reaching the exhaust, a problem inherent in traditional two-cycle designs, the KPW2950V significantly reduces fuel consumption. This design is so efficient, it does not need a catalytic converter in its muffler to meet the stringent EPA standards.

The shaft assembly on the KPW2950V incorporates heavy-duty components including a dual-splined 7mm solid steel drive shaft encased in a high strength aluminum housing and supported by multiple bushings to reduce vibration, a cast aluminum clutch housing with an integrated rubber vibration damper, a heavy-duty gear head assembly with forged iron gears and with four bearings for smooth operation, and a metal debris shield, metal engine stand, and cast aluminum handles and handle mounts.

“The heavy-duty components integrated into the shaft assemblies of the KPW2950V are carried over from previous generations of TMC line trimmers,” adds Dean Kanemitsu. “These components have been proven for over 15 years to withstand the rigors of daily professional use. In addition, by carrying over these components, easy serviceability, another key trait of TMC equipment, is continued. Dealer and customer replacement parts inventories are greatly reduced, adding to TMC’s mission of lowering the total cost of owning and using TMC equipment.”
