Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
This section is designed to answer any questions you may have around the Brushcutter Pro Blade. If you cannot find the answer to your question, please do not hesitate to CONTACT US. We are more than happy to answer any questions.
Which Pro Blade do you recommend?
We are always being asked this question, and before answering it is important we understand your individual situation. We know that not every operator has the same needs.
We have also found that a lot of commercial customers purchase a variety of Pro Blades. We know from experience that when the going gets tough, it is well worth having the right Pro Blade for the job. We also offer an ongoing COUPON discount if two or three Pro Blades are purchased at the same time.
What is ‘Cut & Mulch’ technology?
‘Cut & Mulch’ technology is the culmination of ten years research, development, testing and refinement. The design combines a concaved shaped body with the cutting edge positioned underneath. It is this design that allows for all types of cuttings to be captured and mulched.
What is the ‘Reversible Pro Blade’?
The ‘Reversible Pro Blade’ available on some models, is a dual purpose reversible blade which allows both sides to be used for different tasks. The lawn side can slide along the grass and be used as a lawn mower, cutting the grass to a uniform height without chopping up the turf. The weed side of the blade cuts and mulches vines and lawn.
What are the fins on top of the Pro Blade for?
The fins assist in cutting above the blade and preventing vines or long weeds becoming tangled around the pole. You will find that this is a very useful feature.
Can I really sharpen the Pro Blade on asphalt or a concrete surface?
Yes you can on most models. This is one of the great design features of the Pro Blade. No need for separate sharpening tools, and no need to take the Pro Blade off. Simply run the Brushcutter at a moderate speed, and evenly and gently in a downward fashion make contact with concrete or asphalt for approximately five seconds. Please view the WHY PRO BLADES? – INNOVATION video to see how easily this is done.
Will the Pro Blade fit my brushcutter?
The Pro Blade is designed to fit on all petrol powered straight shaft brushcutters. This includes popular brands such as Stihl, Honda, Husqvarna, Makita, Victa, Ryobi, Bushranger, Shindaiwa, Tanaka, Matrix, Hitachi, Kawasaki, Echo, Ozito, Homelite and Gardenline.

Should I also purchase a Pro Guard?
We recommend that you do for two reasons.
Firstly, the Pro Guard is designed to handle anything the Pro Blade throws at it and is made with the same high quality Japanese steel as the Pro Blade. The Pro Guard will not crack and break like many other models do, and at only 250 grams you will hardly know it is there.
Secondly, the Pro Blade is designed for the professional gardener, farmer and landscaper. As such some models are larger and require more clearance than traditional cutting blades. The Pro Guard is fitted in under two minutes and allows the operator the ability to use the entire Pro Blade range.
The Pro Guard is designed to fit on all straight pole brushcutters.
How long will the Pro Blade last?
We get asked this question a lot, and the straight answer is ‘a very long time’. The Pro Blade is manufactured using the highest quality Japanese steel with state of the art manufacturing techniques. The Pro Blade never needs replacement parts and never malfunctions.
I want to see the Pro Blade in action. Do you have any informative videos I can watch?
Yes we do and they are well worth watching. You will be able to see how safe the Pro Blade is compared to traditional cutting blades and how the Pro Blade performs in many different situations. Please visit our WHY PRO BLADES? page.
