Can this brush cutter be used with a clearing saw blade?

I have a small woodlot that has small saplings as well as blackberry/raspberry canes. Some of those canes are rather large.

can you use different blades

I have seen these with disc blades. can this use them too or is it not designed for them. Is there a benefit for using a disc over the stock blade that comes with this?
Asked by: chris
Yes, there are other attachments that can be used with this tool. A disc does not wear as fast as the stock setup.

Can this be used on small shrubs?

I am looking to get rid overgrowth that includes small shrubbery. Nothing more than about an inch thick. Would this work or something bigger needed?
Asked by: Chris
Hedge trimmers typically do not exceed a cut capacity of 3/4 inch. If you used a saw to remove the branches thicker than 3/4 inch, this hedge trimmer has a lot of power to help manicure unruly shrubs.

Customer Reviews

26cc 2-Cycle Gas Brush Cutter is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Caution: look at other Ryobi products with the same power head I purchased this product for its features and low price. Unfortunately, at the time the "brush cutter" had only one review and it was Excellent. If I had looked at the brush "trimmer", I wouldn't have bought this. The brush trimmer uses the same power head and that is where the problem lies. There were over 250 reviews and they averaged only 2 stars. I experienced the same problem as the majority of reviewers; the power head started at first with some difficulty and then after awhile, less than 15 minutes in my case, it failed completely. I mixed the Ryobi oil (supplied with the unit) with a gallon of fresh gas, and I followed all of the trouble shooting suggestions. The unit was loud and seemed to be overheating. I was able to start it and keep it running for a shorter time with a little more oil in the mixture but then couldn't start it at all. The plug looked clean and properly gapped, the air filter was clean, and the unit did not smoke with the higher oil mixture. The little experience I had using the brush cutter attachment was good, it seemed durable and would cut through 1-1/2", but I returned the whole thing and did not want to fuss with a replacement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powerful & great product~! Works great. It could cut anything. Only one problem is that my husband could work with it since it's pretty heavy & powerful for me to work with.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done Cuts woody brush with surprising ease and I even pushed it slowly through 1 inch trees. Hearing and eye protection is essential as well as making sure you wear good boots and pants to protect yourself from flying debris. It was a little hard to start both cold and hot. Runs and idles smoothly but noisy all the time. Full throttle is a lot faster than needed and I wish it had some sort of rpm limiter. Unless you need a product like this for heavy use, you do not need to spend more.
