Introduction

A Brush Cutter also called a brush saw or cleaning saw is a powered garden or agricultural tool used to prune weeds, young trees, and other foliage that cannot be reached by a lawn mower or rotary mower. Different blades or trimming heads can be attached to the machine for specific applications. Sometimes traditional tools won't cut it, that is where the brush cutter comes in.

These tools are used for garden maintenance, landscaping as well as in the large-scale forestry products. Brush cutters come in a range of variations and motor sizes, each designed for specific use. The bigger the motor, the heavier the cutter will be and requires more manpower to operate. Because brush cutters are power tools, extreme precaution needs to be taken when operating it for the first time. You need to make sure that you know where all the working parts are so that you can avoid being injured. In fact, you need to be careful every time you use any power tool.

There are three main types of brush cutters that you can explore. These options include

Hand-held brush cutters, 

Walk-behind brush cutters, 

Tow-behind brush cutters.

Types of Brush Cutters 

Hand-held Brush Cutters: These brush cutters work similar to string trimmers, but have relatively more power and have more powerful motors than their string trimmer counterparts. For thick lawns and weeds, shrubs and hand brush cutters are ideal. These brush cutters are also available in 2 and 4 cycle engines.

Walk-Behind Brush Cutters: Brush mowers are also known as walk-behind brush cutters and are the perfect choice for projects of areas of overgrown vegetation. If you want to tend to areas which do not require frequent maintenance, a walk-behind brush cutter is ideal for cutting and trimming

Tow-Behind Brush Cutters: If you have a bigger field to cut, tow-behind brush cutters are appropriate as they can be attached to a garden tractor or ATV. They are easy to use and effective in cutting thicker bushes and weeds.

Brush Cutters basically function on 2 specific types of engine:

Generally brush cutters function on two types of engine, either a two-stroke or a four-stroke engine. Two-stroke engines are usually lighter, but somewhat harder to start and a bit more inefficient than a four-stroke engine. Although four-stroke engines are stronger, they are more expensive and not available much. Also, two or four stroke engines have different levels of oil requirements. Four stroke engines require more oil than a two-stroke engine. Also, there are electric engines that run on batteries and need to be charged. Their efficiency might be a bit low considering the fact that they require frequent charging but a good electric brush cutter can be very amazing.

What to consider when purchasing a Brush Cutter

Brush-cutters are a great help for land and forest owners. They are used for everything from lawn care to clearing high grass, saplings, and brushwood. If you know how you will use it, we can help you choose the right one. Are you intending using It for professional use? For professional use, it is important to choose a brush cutter with a long service life, which is also suited for the work you are planning on doing. The Husqvarna 500-models are our professional, no-compromise cutters and they are built for comfortable use during long working days.

What Size Should I Pick?

For professional users, it is more important to pick the right size of brush-cutter, rather than simply selecting the strongest model. A strong engine will help you cut through tougher vegetation more easily, but a stronger machine is also heavier. This can be tiresome if you are working for extended periods of time, making you less effective. As a professional you may therefore want to have several brush cutters to choose from, depending on the job you’re doing. The average consumer should, however, make sure that the machine is strong enough to easily handle the intended job. Perfect for the lawn mower

If the work you are doing is on a small or medium estate, or a rural garden with bushes, hedges and small trees, then a medium range brush cutter is perfect for the job. You can switch heads depending on whether you are cutting grass or tougher vegetation. These brush cutters are comfortable, versatile and easy to use. How easy is it to use?

When choosing a brush cutter you should also consider how easy it is to change cutting blades and trimmer heads. Also make sure that it is easy to change the line when you are using a trimmer head and that the feed mechanism is practical. Husqvarna brush cutters have a Tap-and-Go feed system, which means the trimmer line is fed automatically when the head is pushed into the ground.

Difference Between a 2 stroke and a 4 stroke Brush Cutter Engine

A two stroke engine is a type of internal combustion engine which completes a power cycle with two strokes of the piston during only one crankshaft revolution.The two main functions of a two-stroke engine are compression and combustion, 2 stroke engines tend to be more powerful than 4 stroke engines. And since they have less moving parts, 2 stroke engines tend to be more reliable.

In choosing between a two-stroke or a four-stroke, four-stroke engines tend to be better on fuel, quieter, and less emissions. At the time of this writing, four stroke engines are more expensive. Two-stroke engines are generally more powerful than four-stroke engines, thus two-stroke engines are worse on fuel economy, have worse emissions. What they lose in fuel economy and emissions, they make up for in price and more reliability because they have less moving parts.

And speaking of less moving parts, the 4 stroke has a separate oil pan to lubricate the engine. Many lawnmowers are 2 stroke engines and generally cut grass flat on the ground. A brush cutter or a string trimmer often has to be tilted and held at odd angles in order to do its job. That tilt can result in oil moving out of where it needs to be, exposing the engine to greater wear or even damage.
