With a brushcutter primarily heavily savaged areas are freed from wild growth. But it is also possible to work with the brush cutter maintained lawns. For almost every purpose, there is a corresponding brush cutter. It is good to know which knife is best for a specific application.
Mow grass with a 3-tooth blade
If normally grown grass is to be mowed with the brush cutter, a 3-blade knife is particularly well suited for this job. Such a knife is equipped with three cutting edges. These are sharpened on both sides. That is very beneficial. If the knife becomes dull at work, it can simply be turned and reused. The two-sided grinding doubles the service life. A 3-tooth blade cuts the grass very clean. Neither the sward nor the blades of grass are damaged during mowing. The clippings can therefore also be used as food for animals. If this is not desired, it can be simply swept up and disposed of.
A thicket knife is suitable for wild growth
With us you also get knives for processing wild growth. These have two blades and are similar to a lawn mower blade. With such knives can be eliminated easily wild growth. Even if some scrub has settled in the wild, the area can be worked with a thicket knife. Anyone who has ever tried to regroup a heavily overgrown property knows how difficult this project can be. But if one of our thickets is used, it means a lot of work.
Mulching blades are suitable for natural surfaces
There are numerous areas that should be left as natural as possible. Regular maintenance is required so that growth on these areas does not become excessive. For this purpose, a mulching knife is very good. Such a knife does not simply cut off the fouling, but crushes it for the most part. Therefore, the clippings can safely remain on the surface. Over time, the clippings disintegrate and then serves as food for the regrowing plants. To maintain a natural habitat, a mulching knife is indispensable.
What to look for when buying a knife for the brushcutter?
Particularly important is the size of the hole. Basically, there are only two different holes on the blades. Some have a 20 mm diameter hole. These then fit only on free-cutters, which are equipped with a 20-millimeter tool holder. Somewhat larger units are equipped with a 25.4 mm diameter mount. We also offer suitable brushcutters for these devices. So it makes sense to measure as a precaution, which knife fits on the brush cutter.
