Think hybrid hedge trimmer on an extension and used similar to a string trimmer. You can clear a lot of brush quick!  Makes short work of black berries and any brush 3/4 or less.
  Thanks for the info on this, cleared most of my fences yesterday in about 5 hours, would've taken me a month with a machete!

Glad you found it useful. Works great on bracken fern, wild black berry, and any other brush. Plus works pretty well as a hedge trimmer :). Looking forward to the Scotch Broom bloom this year, should make control much easier.

Ended up with a Stihl; so far so good  :tup:

Well I'm sure you'll be happy. I recommend ethanol free gas, and Stihl brand 2 cycle oil. Been running both in my Echo for years with no problems.

Already on it. 6 pack of stihl oil with purchase got me another 2 years of warranty.
