Gets the job done
The brush cutter attachment for my trimmer overall does a good job. It was very easy to attach to the trimmer. Once I had it attached, I started the trimmer and began to cut brush. When you first pull the trigger, it wobbles a bit and is loud, but once it gets up to speed, it levels out and works well. I began just trying to cut one piece of small brush at a time. I was trying to use it like a chainsaw. It worked, but took some time. Then I began using it like a trimmer. I began using a swinging motion from side to side to sweep the area I was cutting. This was very effective. It took down every piece of brush in its way on the first try. Other than it being a lit wobbly in the beginning, I think this is a great attachment. It has saved me a lot if time. I would recommend this for anyone looking to clear out some brush.

Brush Cutter
This attchment gives a slight vibration upon initial engagement. I had expected more cutting capability with this attachement, don't expect do cut down brush over a quarted inch without some added pressure to get through it. If the blade that come with this unit was like a saw blade it would be much better.

Brush Cutter Attachment

Does not do well at cutting the smallest of brush/weeds. It basically just bend the weeds over and not cutting them. I have to slant the cutter and cut weed/brush one at a time. I have tried several different angles.......never had this problem with other cutters.

I got this Brush attachment to cut down 16 years worth of weeds.

It works really well. We did have to return it once due to a screw breaking of but it works wonderful for cutting down large weeds and over grown brush.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Brush cutter attachment

Not very good at cutting thick brush. Will probably do fine once the brush has been thinned.

Great Product

It is a little unbalanced when you first start using it but smoothes our at full speed. I bought this because of a lot of brush on our new property. cuts like a knife thru butter! Handled tough thick weeds without a problem, cuts saplings up to about 3/4 to an inch with little trouble at all. Overall very happy and satisfied with it.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

It works but it's not the safest of designs.

If I had a different option, I'd try it. When I first connected the brush-cutter to my trimmer, it seemed like a sloppy fit. After starting the trimmer, I realized how bad it was. The locking/release tab is smaller than the hole on my connector on my trimmer, which causes the attachment to jump a little every time you rev the trimmer. The real problem being that after this happens a few times, the attachment acts like a hammer and rotates the connector and the attachment until your brush-cutter blade is facing upward and staring you right in the face. It's managable with a little modification to the trimmer but it scared the **** out me the first time it happened and started shooting debris straight up in the air.

Excellent product

I purchased this cutter for my husband to go along with the pole saw and weed cutter attachments. He really enjoys using them and they are a very good quality product! I would highly recommend them to anyone considering a convertible unit. We have trails through our woods and using this cutter to go through the small saplings is awesome!

I would recommend this product to a friend.
