Chain Beefs Up String-Type Trimmers
"The Brush Crusher is a universal chain-cutter that replaces the head on existing string trimmers. It's equipped with flexible, square-edged chains that are ideal for cutting through heavy grass, bushes and shrubs," says Peter Quail, of The St. George Co., Paris, Ont.
  The Brush Crusher is designed to use on any 25cc to 45cc string trimmer. It's equipped with two 4-in. long chains with links about 1/4 in. thick.
  "The chains crush through thicker material up to 1 in. thick, yet can easily maneuver around rocks and other objects," says Quail.
  Reduced maintenance is a key advantage, says Quail, as there are no strings to replace. "We introduced the Brush Crusher last summer, and so far no one has told us they've had to replace any chains."
  You have to be careful when operating the unit as the chains can be dangerous. "If the strings on a conventional string trimmer can cut through flesh, then you can imagine what chains will do. You have to keep them at arms length," he notes.
  The Brush Crusher sells for $57 plus S&H.
