TB-02 is good(after a lot of money)...but the TA-05 out of the box is awesome. I would highly recommend the TA-05 because my buddies got one, and he hasn't broken one part in two seasons(I only broke a few bevel gears on my TB-02)! I like my TB-02 a little bit more than his TA-05, but he spent less to get it up to speed.
