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.

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.

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.

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!
