Brushcutters have been developed for clearing grass, small bushes and brushwood. Brushcutters are available in a variety of sizes, depending on the job. A variety of accessories allows you to use the same machine for trimming grass as well as clearing brushwood, bushes and small trees. The brushcutters have a long shaft to increase their range.
Forestry clearing saws
With a forestry clearing saw you can clear trees, small bushes and brushwood. The forestry clearing saws are available in a variety of sizes, depending on the job. A forestry clearing saw has a shorter shaft for increased manoeuvrability in tight stands and the increased angle of the mitre gear makes it easier to fell in a desired direction. Thumb-operated throttle also helps make the job easier.
Things to keep in mind when choosing brushcutters and forestry clearing saws:
The machine should have an efficient vibration-damping system to minimise vibrations in those parts of the machine that the user comes in contact with.
The machine should be as light as possible.
For maximum efficiency, they should have plenty of high power and rapid acceleration. And brush cutters should have lots of torque.
The machine should have an ergonomic harness, to spread the load over the body. This improves comfort and efficiency.
The machine should be easy to start.
The handlebar should be angled relative to the shaft, to prevent an uneven load being placed on the back.
The handlebar can be angled and folded down, for easier transport and storage.
The engine should have some form of emission control, for the benefit of the user's working environment as well as the environment as a whole.
The wider the selection of accessories and cutting attachments, the greater the range of applications.
The bevel gear and the shaft on a forestry clearing saw should be fine tuned for work in the forest.
