Trimmer Cuts Brush Up To 3-In. Dia.
According to manufacturer Ballard Inc., the Tri-Clone Trimmer head fits most straight shaft, counter-clockwise running trimmers. This includes both gas and electric models.
The attachment’s three curved blades mean there’s no string to manage, eliminating the hassle of dealing with broken line or string that’s prone to tangling and getting wrapped around stubborn weeds. The blades are made from Sk-51 high-strength steel, which requires minimal sharpening over time.
Weighing just 1.2 lbs., the tool adds minimal weight to your trimmer and is versatile enough to maneuver throughout cumbersome landscapes for quick brush removal. The attachment itself is designed to sit on the ground for easy operation.
Each trimmer head comes with a reverse locking nut for installation (choose 1.00 mm for Stihl, 1.25 mm for Echo, Husqvarna and all other brands). Echo trimmers may require a steel plate adapter, and Shindaiwa trimmers will need a blade adapter kit. The attachment should take fewer than five minutes to install with the right tools.
Customer reviews indicate the trimmer head is well-suited for heavy-duty work, especially clearing overgrown patches of land. Many found that the tool cut down branches as wide as paper towel rolls and could handle contact with the occasional rock without issue.
You can purchase the trimmer head from most major retailers as well as the company website for $64.99.
