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.

Turns into more work

I bought this in spring of 2012. Worked great. I thought about future purchases for the accessories the main reason that we bought this one. It's much heavier than my old Weed Eater brand. We have about 250 yards of fence to trim under and a steep bank to weed eat, the bank generally takes about 1-1/2 hrs. to do. Plus aroud trees and sidewalks, etc. This spring the weeds get wrapped around the shaft and the guard. It takes a lot longer to untangle the mess than it does to get it wrapped up in there. For the price I would not buy again.

Vibration/Wobble at half speed

|

Vibrates badly at half power, getting up to full power. Has anyone had this problem? OK at full power..Still, afraid blade will come off.

works great

|

Works great if used as intended so read the instructions. I am using this with a 31cc Chraftsman Limited Edition weed trimmer. I used this to clear over 2000 ft of fence row that had over grown with weeds and saplings up to 1 inch in diameter. Actually on the weeds 1 inch diameter and on saplings up to 1/2 inch cut great - over 1/2 inch on the saplings took a little more effort but would cut them. Also I mainly just use on the big stuff and go back over with my string trimmer to cut the grass. It will cut grass but its slow as its itended use is for the bigger stuff. I think the negative reviews come from people that maybe expected to much or abused the cutter so again read the instructions. This brush cutter could last you a long time or a short time just depends how hard you make it work.

Mandatory Piece in Your Arsenal

This item is rugged and works well with your split trimmer attachment. You can purchase a "****** Blade," which will significantly add to the efficiency of your brush cutting. Try to score it on sale with your "ShopYourWay" rewards points for the lowest price you will find.

Great for brush removal comes with accessories

|

Use this to clear brush with such ease. Have a few acres where a tractor can not reach. Easy to use. The shoulder strap and handle accessories (included) adds to comfort while in use.

Works just fine

|

I would suggest those having difficulty try reading the manual. If you use it as intended and instructed it cuts through brush and saplings up to 1.5 inches at least. Demolishes them. The blade is also just fine the way it comes

Easily Overtaxed

|

Don't challenge this item with any wood/ woody brush over 1/4". And I hit some bamboo shoots that were mature. Eventually, the SINGLE torx (3/16"?) screw holding the cutter head on the shaft deformed the threaded hole, making the entire unit spare parts only. In store staff helpful, but no cigar. I would like a steep discount on a replacement...maybe. Can I get a witness, Craftsman?

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.

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.

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.
