trail clearing technique and tools

   / trail clearing technique and tools #1,211  
Cooled off a bit in Middle Tennessee enough that I decided to cut some thick stemmed brush on the hillside. First picture is the material after being laid down by a chainsaw blade style cutter.

Second picture is the material after being mulched by the Oregon two tooth mulching head (295505-0).

Sorry I didn't make before/after pictures of the briar patch I also cut, but the mulching head flew through the briars and also mulched them up very effectively. IMO, this is where it excels over all other cutting heads I've used. It mulches briars so well that I'm not having to wade through a pile of cut briar stems like I did with the other cutters I've used.

There seems to be a certain size of sapling and grape vine where the mulching head tended to throw chunks of material back at me. I would not recommend it for cutting through larger saplings or larger grapevine because of this. Definitely recommend wearing face protection, gloves, boots, and leg protection.
