I have the need to dissolve regen including dog rose, white and black thorn, tough herb layer and grasses, I am thinking latest generation brush cutters Stihl or Husky with the 2 or 3 mulching style blade, any help with make, model or blades appreciated.:001_smile: And no I’m not allowed to use my flails grrrrrr got to be hand work:thumbdown:

i run a couple of stihl fs480 with the twin blade mulching head, gets abused to hell doing rail and site clearance and cant fault it. regularly takes hitting big immovable stuff thats been chucked off the line and into the undergrowth in its stride and would happily buy another. The twin mulcher blade works god as the blade twists down at the ends so you can effectively drop it onto the undergrowth to mulch it.

the Kawasaki TH48 is a great machine i have two.

 

with the wing tipped mulching blade it rips through tough stuff , we even use it on thick patches of broom and gorse thats over 2meters tall and dense.
