Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Brushcutter This brushcutter is easy to start and can handle all the brush on my farm, from thorny thickets to small trees. It is well-built and dependable, and is light enough for a smaller person like me to use. June 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Money Ever Spent I thought I would have buyers remorse when I was making this purchase, but after getting it home I couldn't be any happier! I am an average Joe home owner with about 5 acres of over grown woods.After making the purchase I used it a few times in a small area just to get the feel for it. This past weekend I spent about 7 hrs strapped to it. I was pleasantly surprised that after that many hours of running it I wasn't extremely sore. The double harness is a must have. The harness takes all of the strain off of your arms and shoulders.I was averaging about a tank of gas every 45 to 60 minutes and after 7 hrs of run time the chisel tooth blade is still cutting just as good as when I begin. I have been cutting everything from grass to small trees up to 3-inch's in diameter.I am going to purchase a string head for it next to do my everyday trimming. This machine does weight a lot but with the harness it doesn't where me out nearly as bad as my small straight shaft trimmer.If I had to do it again I wouldn't hesitate for one minute! Best Purchase Ever!! May 18, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brush cutting beast Very powerful and but fuel efficient machine. Cleared 5x the area and used less gas than my FS 130. It used different blades than the smaller units. Overall best clearing saw I have ever used. Starts on first pull 95% of the time. i have the double harness and it works flawlessly using it all day. April 15, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Power I have about 20 acres overgrown with various saplings and multi-florals. This machine eats through about anything it comes into contact with. I was going back and forth between this and the 560. I can clear an area 10x the size I would with a chainsaw and machete over the same time period.Great on Gas, starts right up every time. Buy the sharpening kit when you purchase the machine and you will be running uninterrupted.Don't let the weight intimidate you, the double shoulder harness make operating this machine effortless.Once the machine is at RPM, the vibrations go away. Ear and Eye protection are mandatory running this machine. Make sure you have a good set of safety glasses and over the ear protection(I use my shooting muffs). April 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent does more than advertised. Cuts small trees with little resistance Was able to clear dense scrub pine trees easily in a one acre area in a short time December 11, 2015
