Which Stihl Brushcutter Blade ?

Once in a while I need to cut wild clumpy grass with meter high nettles & bindweed.  It's often wet.  What's the best Stihl blade for this ?  I don't think the shedding blade would work as it has downturned ends that might catch on stones etc.  I was going to get the standard 4 lobed blade but Stihl say this is for long dry grass.

  • I like the Tri blade, use it the most for rough stuff. I haven't used 4 lobed. I dislike the 2 lobed, one dinked notch in it, then it's totally out balance.

    If you have the correct guard fitted the muching blade does not touch the ground as the guard prevents this. I find it a very efficient bit of kit and it reduces the amount debris left on the surface as it's cut a lot smaller rather than just cut down and left on the ground.

  • Do the Stihl blades come with the fitting kit or is it extra ?

  • I believe they do not come with the required gubbins. Just a blade. Best to speak to your Stihl dealer.

     

    • I live in Ireland & it's wonderful but the Stihl dealers are not good :)

      • F r Jones have got the fitting kit for under £36. With out the tools needed to fit.

  • I trialled a Stihl one last week at the local shop , it was like two discs oscillating, unbelievable it was 

    No chance of it flicking stones as it worked like a hedgecutter , I've not seen one ever being used and don't know the name of it though 

    • That's been well publicised & reviewed here.  

    • Rg-km? Great tool, massive price difference.

      • That's the one . Do you use that regular , he advised it for edging on grass cuts but I thought it was a bit too slow for that tbh , great for some jobs tho
