Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lester Good cutter, but lade needs a cutting edge.
Just bought this cutter today, and the first thing i noticed is what another reviewer stated; the blade has Zero (0!) Sharpness. Its completly blunt. I tried it for a few minutes and it tries to beat the brush to death instead of cutting it. I took the blade off and put a cutting edge on it with an angle grinder, and presto!, much better! What are these designers thinking? Safety? Thats like putting a lawn mower blade on your mower with a flat edge. It wont cut hot butter. So except for a simple mod, its a pretty good tool. A little pricey, but now it works well enough. Lets see if it holds up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYer Expand it Brush Cutter Attachment
I bought this to cut some heavy brush. It was a good size area. It took me about 4 hours over 2 days to complete. The brush was really thick. At the end of the job, the blade was completely dull. But I worked it very hard, so I was not disappointed about it. I will need a new blade to use it again, but the attachment performed well and is easy to connect and disconnect from the trimmer base. I used it on a Troy-bilt trimmer base with no issue. It is a good buy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Doug A good intermediate tool
This is a good intermediate tool. In a tight area where a larger machine would be awkward to use and the brush is too tough for a sting weed-eater would be over powered this brush-cutter trimmer is the ring in the bell.....It is a tool the user has to operate with good tool skills and safety practices. It will take the brush right down to the dirt level, and with that I recommend to anyone who considers such a tool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MagicBill Does a great job for what it was designed to do
The brush cutter attachment worked well with my Homelite Easy Lite 26vt power head. As others have stated, it takes a few seconds to power up to full speed and the blade is not sharp. But the momentum easily whacks down small brush and saplings.
I found that it worked better if I swung the head back and forth like a sickle. That seems to cut the underbrush better including the vines and brambles which would tangle otherwise. Several small saplings were 1/2-inch in diameter and the brush cutter whacked them down at the base. The head hit rocks and sparks flew; however, the blade is heavy enough not to chip or ding the blade. If it was thinner and sharper it may have took a divot out of the blade.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TC This thing is like a light saber on vines!
Put this attachment on my Ryobi power head and headed to the back 40. It cut through the multi flora rose like a hot knife through butter. Not the best on 2 inch or larger trees, but that's what a chainsaw is for. This thing is great on heavy weeds and vines. Any brush smaller than 2 inches goes down easy too. Great product for the price. Frankly, I was skeptical about it, but it's a really good tool!
