I'm looking for a straight shaft brush cutter with the option to occassionally use a hedge cutting attachment . I tried being cheap (Florabest multi-tool ) but it's a heavy and loathsome machine, the hedging "tool" is particularly awful/useless. The tiny Tanaka (TBC-2390) has caught my eye. It's very light (3.9 Kg), from a reputable brand, can have the TPH-200 hedging attachment fitted, and within budget. -So has anyone got any experience of this little weedwacker and/or the hedging attachment? Powerwise it should be ok for strimming duties, I currently have a Stihl FS-50 which is sufficiently powerful for dealing with long grass on fence lines and reeds in my brook etc. -Will the little 24cc (1.0hp) Tanaka have enough grunt to drive the hedging tool reasonably well? It'll be used to trim soft green material like Juniper, conifers, Laurel and the thin extremities of Hawthorn a couple of times a year. Thanks for any responses
I am currently searching for a replacement brushcutter since my FS410 was stolen by the light fingered scum. I was set on another FS410 or FS460, but having read a few reviews etc I am reconsidering the Husky equivalent a 545RXT. I will be running it with a shredding knife attachment on thick scrub/brambles etc. So your views and opinions please?
can anyone tell me anything about this brush cutter? on the shaft it has allen sds 20 on it but i cant find anything out on line about it other than some Kawasaki's are the same i need to know exactly what Kawasaki or others are the same as i think i need a new carb,
Charles Ekin posted a topic in ChainsawsGreetings I need to change the cylinder and piston on my Stihl FS400 strimmer. (There was no specific forum for strimmers, so I thought this was the best place out of the other options). Genuine part £160+vat, non-genuine part on e-bay or elsewhere around the £40 mark. Any ideas about what to look out for, tips, strong opinions, etc very welcome. All I've been told so far is that the same casting moulds that make the parts for Stihl will be used for other brands unless they are Chinese, and in which case, they make their own moulds which are more likely to be dodgy. Any thoughts? Thanks Charlie
