"Hi James. I bought the Pick Tine and have only used it on one job. This was on a flower bed with soft soil. Perhaps I'm wrong, but, I look at tools as to how often they are used and therefore value for money. The hedge cutter, pruner and strimmer (s…"

Stihl Kombi Brush

I am considering buying the Kombi Brush attachment. I have a couple of jobsthat require a lot of brushing - 2 car parks. One car park has a lot of pine needles that have been left for a long time and and a normal brush won't move them. I have looked at a couple of videos online and cannot make up my mind how effective the brushes are. Has anyone actually got one and is it any good? If so, what do you tend to use it for. Thanks.

Bessertrim brushcutters

Hi all.Our echo brush cutter after 7 years of abuse is now beyond economical repair. I was going to plump for the exact same new model, but knowing parts can be pricey I've vaguely thought about purchasing a different brand. My newest employee suggested a model from Bessertrim, currently with the Mitsubishi TL 26 or 33 engine. I've personally never come across them, and there's very little info online to go with. I wondered if anyone had any experience of their stuff or had dealt with them.
