    This might be my most valued tool?
    I can not imagine clearing brush or cutting firewood without my clearing saw. If I had to choose between chainsaw or clearing saw... I'd take my clearing saw. Lots of safety warnings had me concerned, but it is safer to use the clearing saw than ax or chainsaw to cut bushes and multi flora rose bushes. I have a friend who is going old school clearing around a pond on some property he just bought and it is painful for me to watch him. I have 20 acres I am turning into a field, the brush is too ... read more high to use tractor in many places. This tool is awesome! It has been great for thinning the woods around my house too.

    Super Brush Cutter
    Bought a semi-professional brush cutter for clearing wild blackberries and maintaining hiking paths through woods. My wife has taken over using this cutter as it is easy for her to use and she loves the rate at which she can clear dense brush. Adding the better harness has made it much more comfortable to use.

    Love running this saw!
    Bought this saw to help clear 7 acres of thick brush and saplings. I'm an average Joe homeowner . I read all I could online about clearing land and the use of a clearing saw to accomplish it. I'm so glad I purchased this saw. It is a beast. With the included saw blade. It's rips through the small saplings like their not even there. I can easily clear access throughout the property to get to the larger stuff with my chainsaw. The included harness is a must. I also purchased a arborist helmet with ... read more the face mask. Don't operate it with out one. Can't wait to use it to clear walkways on my hunting property!

    This is a powerful clearing saw.
    I live on a small family farm and have used other Stihl trimmers that are rated to accept cutting blades, but they are designed for brush and small saplings. If you need a cleaning saw to clear a thicket or around fence rows this is the item you need. It can handle three inch growth with ease. I have only run five tanks of gas through it but it does a great job clearing around the edges of pastures and any field where the woods surrounding it are moving into the cleared field. I can see this ... read more as a product I will have many years. Once I clear under some of the pine trees the first time the next year will be much easier to maintain. Our farm has been in production sine the 1890's so I have a lot of pride in keeping the place looking good.

    King of the Jungle!!!
    I recently purchased this brushcutter and it is a Beast!! The features are excellent. The harness makes it feel like it only weighs 5lbs and allows you to work more efficiently. The start-up process is awesome. It starts on the the first pull easy. I was able to clear an area in hour versus the normal 5 to 8 hour job depending on my help. Overall, this machine make me like a child playing with toys.
