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.

Cuts the heavy stuff

Works good to cut the heavy stuff. It does load the engine on the string trimmer pretty hard but once it's up to speed it does ok out of the box. Sharpen the blades as I did, and this really rips.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great Tool

This tools cuts almost anything about anything, cuts fast and smooth, good for cutting hard roots or high sticks, it also includes de J-handle, so you can replace the stock one, I prefer the J-handle you can manage it more precisly.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

POOR Attachment

I had to buy an upgraded version of a current weed wacker that I already have in order to use this attachment. I am NOT impressed. First I have to run the weed wacker at a hight RPM just to get it moving and then when it hit something it doesn't cut it very well and most of the time not at all. Furthermore, this causes me to use more fuel and less cut time. You also have to cut really horizontal in order to cut anything low to the ground. Poor design but i guess its because they are using a slotted type of bar so that you can interchange different attachments. Definitely lost money on this thing.

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.
