Carbide Brush Cutter Blades
on October 12, 2012
I checked this item out on the seller's website as well before ordering on Amazon. It was several dollars cheaper and free shipping on Amazon as opposed to the seller's website. The seller's website did provide more information on the product which led me to the purchase. Overall I am very pleased with the blades. I used them on my Ryobi weedeater (brushcutter attachment head). It did not need the additional reducer ring that came with the blade for mounting. It cut through 2 inch mesquite saplings like nobody's business. I have since used it to trim overhead limbs in my yard. Haven't dulled it yet to require sharpening, but I did buy a two pack thankfully. All in all, very good product.
Now that I have used both blades and they were ready to be sharpened, I got a huge surprise when I went down to my local sharpening shop. IF they could be sharpened, because of the number of teeth on the blade, it would cost more than the blade cost when I purchased it. Secondly, the teeth are so close together, the shop did not have files small enough to fit between the teeth. So, if you are planning for a "one time use", these are great blades. If you plan to use them for a long time (due to the carbide tips), don't waste your time.
