I have about 20 acres overgrown with various saplings and multi-florals. This machine eats through about anything it comes into contact with. I was going back and forth between this and the 560. I can clear an area 10x the size I would with a chainsaw and machete over the same time period.
Great on Gas, starts right up every time. Buy the sharpening kit when you purchase the machine and you will be running uninterrupted.

make operating this machine effortless.
Once the machine is at RPM, the vibrations go away. Ear and Eye protection are mandatory running this machine. Make sure you have a good set of safety glasses and over the ear protection(I use my shooting muffs).
This thing rocks
I have 200 acres and needed to cut some mesquites at ground level and then poison the stims and stumps left. I can go through a field and clear small mesquites in no time and then go back and spray and then pick up the mesquites rather than bush hogging so there are no thorns left in the field. This thing has been super reliable so far and cuts through everything. I do use the harness and highly recommend for ease of saw use.
