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.

Hard to use

This cutter attachment adds a lot of weight to the weed eater. I wanted to use it for cutting berry bushes however it doesn't cut them well. Seems I wasted my money on this item.

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.

Brush cutter attachment

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

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.

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.

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!

exceeded expectations

|

We had to clear a couple of acres of thick brush, and we had no problem with this and a walk-behind brush hog. At first, we had this and heavy trim line on another weedeater, but the other weedeater died after 15 minutes - the head got stripped from the workload. Surprisingly, though, this brush cutter did great and never got bogged down.

Brush wackier

|

The Sears Brushwacker easily handles all
advertised items and then some. It takes
care of small brush, tree stems, weeds,
and other items like bramble briers, brush, trash, and other heavier growth.

This attachment increases the value of our trimmer. Easy to switch out and the J handle makes the trimmer easier to use too. I plan to purchase limb trimmer attachment next.

In theory it should, as most of these items are universal amongst most brands.
