An Alternative Use for Hedge Trimmers - Brush Hogging

By Wyatt Bedell from Wyatt's Lawn Service

Hi guys, Wyatt here again, and today I want to show you an alternative use for your hedge trimmers - brush hogging.

Sure, bushes, hedges, and shrubs are all well and good - but trust me, you'll want to think about using your trimmer for brush hogging after seeing what I had to cut down!

As you saw in the video, these weeds were tall and thick, and needed to be cut down. I could have gone in with a regular string trimmer, but I would have been there all day, even if the string didn't keep breaking!

While I use a STIHL hedge trimmer in the video, I have a quick tip for those who think that might be too heavy - check out the video at 3:24. :)

Well, I hope that helps, guys, and I'd love to hear if this video helped, and what tips you'd give for thicker weeds and if you use a hedge trimmer like this.
