  • Using trimmer string has its limits and not all brush blades are equally effective. In this video, I compare 5 different brush blades for clearing tall grass, light brush, and small trees. Please follow manufacturers instructions and use all appropriate safety gear and equipment if you decide to do this. This is educational and entertainment purposes only. I'm not sponsored by any of these brands and I purchased all of the products that I tested.

    If you want to cut small trees, use a Beaver blade or clone. Chainsaw teeth mounted on a disc blade.

    I use a Ryobi blade.
    When cutting grass with a metal blade.
    Get at the edge of the grass and push the blade in just above the ground. Grass is stiffest there and cuts easier with the blade.
    Pass the blade about 1 to 3 inch in and across your swing. On the backswing push it in a little more and move the cut grass out of the way with the trimmer.
    Rinse, Repeat.
    Take off just a little at a time and the blades work better on tall grass.

    For small trees less than 1 inch just hit em pretty good just above the ground and they should cut right off.

    Anything over 2 inch I am going to get a saw.
    I have torn up enough weedeater shafts in my lifetime.

    Hey man, Hope you are doing well. Please don't cut trees for each and every blade. Cut only one tree from the top of the branch and use next blade for same tree. I don't know whether you are going to plant a tree or not but the plant will take years to become tree. Hope you understand and stop cutting and start planting.

    Have you ever looked at a table saw and thought, "Gee, I wish this didn't have a guard on it and I could swing it around on a pole!"

    Stihl makes a great shoulder harness that attaches to your whirling instrument of dismemberment. Please don't risk your leg or bystanders leg. Those blades ricochet off small tree limbs so fast you just shouldn't do this!!

    This seems like a great way to loose a foot. I say stick to the filament for grass and a chainsaw for brush.

    I would go with Craftop for sure. More versatile blade. Probaly would deal better with unexpected small rocks.
