Which Trimmer Brush Blade is Best? Let’s find out!

Using trimmer string has its limits and not all brush blades are equally effective. In this video, I compare 5 different brush blades for clearing tall grass, light brush, and small trees. Please follow manufacturers instructions and use all appropriate safety gear and equipment if you decide to do this. This is educational and entertainment purposes only. I’m not sponsored by any of these brands and I purchased all of the products that I tested.

I always used carbide tipped circular sae blades, knock the diamond out of them and they bolt right to the head. Lowes had them in contractor packs and were cheap.
And for the asses, I had a solid shaft trimmer with a handlebar grip… and yes you need to be careful and yes it is dangerous but fence rows just can’t be readily cleaned out any other way..

Ever tried nyl saw, trimmer wire? It’s a thicker wire with teeth on it. Can be used in the regular trimmer wire head, or put in a special head. Perfect for heavy grass and can cut up to around 1″ in soft species.

Id be making up a metal guard for those saw blades! Plastic wont do much if a saw blade shatters!

I buy both 7 1/4″ and 10″ 16 tooth carbide blades depending on the brush. I use a step drill and ream them out to fit the tool. Very inexpensive and they work great.

I bought the brush cutter attachment from Lowes, put it on my cub cadet 4125 4 stroke. Tried the tri blade it comes with but it is no match to a circular saw blade. I bought a 7 1/4 circular saw blade for $5 and used it for at least 8 hours. Found a 3 pack on sale so I switched it out. Was missing 4 teeth but still worked great. Using them to cut down honeysuckle bushes and whatever else (4 inch thick trees) and I’m cutting the stumps at ground level. The brush cutter attachment has a metal guard which is safer and helps position things during cutting. I might buy one of the 8 inch blades on amazon just to try it out but basic circular saw blades work amazingly well.

Funzone49 says:

I use a Rhino-tuff brushcutter, it is kind of like the Grass Gator, but instead of being made completely out of nylon, the blades are metal-tipped, will not cut trees, but makes quick work of light brush and berry bushes

Brad Taylor says:

The carbide tips are really dangerous. I had one come off a saw blade once and embed itself in the ceiling when it clipped a hidden nail. Like the chain saw tipped disc better. Add, if I used these kinds of blade, I think I would have them hard mounted in a deck in front of my mower. I don’t want my legs anywhere around them.

Keith Lincicum says:

You put a smile on my face because 25 years ago I had one of the first Stihl straight trimmers and a carbide tooth blade was not available. We had 5 acres of semi-forest, so I made a bushing to put one of my old 9″ carbide table saw blades on it. I cleared a lot of brush and limbs that day. KL

Craft top is a Stihl ripoff!

That forester blade had the “not intended for” but that’s just a disclaimer to save the companies butt. I may get one that thing shredded brush.

Hammers and Dents Forge says:

I definitely like that the Forester can be sharpened

Ragesauce says:

I’d be scared as shit to use that thing, a friggin saw blade unprotected just inches from my legs, no thanks!

Gene Murphy says:
