Best heavy duty weed wacker?

barnold4August 4, 2014

Sorry if this is the wrong forum to post in but I have a hillside acre of natural Colorado grass/small bushes that I need to keep cut for fire mitigation. I'm told the best way is a weed wacker. Any suggestions on a commercial grade type?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Any of the commercial machines are competent: Redmax, TMC, Tanaka, Efco, Dolmar, Shindaiwa, etc.

Higher end consumer straight shaft such as Echo or Stihl might be a good choice for you.

Since you're talking brush, make sure you get a straight shaft with a solid drive shaft and the ability to handle a saw blade and a three-lobe brush blade. Figure $300 and up.
