Thread: Removing of bramble bushes

  1. #1

    Removing of bramble bushes

    Any recommendation how to remove large area's of bramble, 6-8 ' high, from an area (around a high seat) where it is almost impossible to do it with anything more than hand-tools. And yes, I do have a heavy-duty petrol motor strimmer with cutting blades rather than strings, and it is still a very awkward slow job. Thank you.

    These blades are brilliant and work well on my Husqvarna brushcutter hardly ever get choked and you can work at a decent pace.


    Batter it with brushcutter in winter and then a spray with a decent brush and tree stump killer next spring and you should see a difference.

    Have you tried a mulching blade they are only two blades but the they bend 90 degrees down about 2 inches, they are good medicine for brambles.

    Please dont spray. It causes cancer.

    Could you get a Billy Goat brush mower in there? I've got a DR Power Field and Brush mower and there's not much that slows it down (although going through a large bank of brambles today, I did have to reverse out again and have another go as they're like steel cables...)

    this blade

    does this to broom (similar to gorse but not spiky for those that don't have the pleasure of clearing the stuff),
    its the downwards swatting motion that really gets it done.
