Brushcutter action

Buying guide: brushcutters

Consider your needs first when you are buying a brushcutter. Here is our 7-tip guide to get the right machine for your working life.

You use a brushcutter for clearing grass, small bushes and undergrowth. The brushcutter is more robust and stronger than a grass trimmer, and comes in a number of engine sizes. The denser the vegetation you have to clear, the more powerful the machine you need.

With accessories, you can use the same machine for trimming grass, clearing undergrowth and shrubs as well as thinning out smaller trees. The brushcutter is fitted with a longer shaft to increase its working range.

7 tips before buying a brushcutter

1. Choose a machine that is powerful enough for the vegetation you plan to clear.

2. Equip your machine with an ergonomic harness for the best relief, comfort and efficiency.

3. The handlebar should be angled relative to the shaft, to prevent an uneven load being placed on your back.

4. The machine must have excellent vibration dampening to ensure you have the energy to work for a long time without getting tired.

5. The handlebar can be angled and folded down, for easier transport and storage.

6. The wider the range of accessories and cutting equipment, the greater the range of applications.

7. Buy your machine from a servicing dealer who can help you with accessories, service and spare parts.
