Brush Cutter

You may often find that even the most powerful electrical or petrol trimmer is not up to the job of cutting down thick grasses and dense shrubbery if your garden has become overgrown. However, by using a heavy duty brush cutter you should find that this arduous task becomes far easier, and even enjoyable. Brush cutters are able to tackle a whole host of problematic regions in your garden that include thick and established weeds, tall and hardy grasses, brambles, thistles, and you may even use a brush cutter on small bushes. You will also find that even though a brush cutter has a vast amount of power, it is surprisingly maneuverable, and able to deal with the most problematic of foliage.

There are numerous types of brush cutters, although the most popular are the two stroke and four stroke. The two stroke brush cutter is the most common type, and typically is used the most. They will generally rev for a lot higher than a four stroke brush cutter, hence making then extremely powerful. A two stroke brush cutter is fairly easy to maintain and are known to be extremely reliable.

The four stroke brush cutter is a relatively new innovation, which was typically only built by Honda until very recently.
