Easy to assemble, started up well, does a good job of cutting thick grass and light brush. What more can you ask for? (Ask for earmuffs - unsurprisingly it's pretty loud.)

I'm generally every happy with this product. Easy to start and sturdy. The cutting line doesn't keep breaking, so I can't comment on the replacement system. My only criticism is that the harness is inadequate. Too light and too narrow. I replaced it with a better one.

This is the smaller version of the brush cutter I bought also. Good little machine. Like most of the flash gear I have it seems easy to start and reliable so far. Good quality for the price.

Very happy with the product. It has the good quality of other Flash products I've bought. Easy to assemble and operate. My only criticism is that the harness and shoulder pad is too narrow. I had another wider and thicker one which I'd used before on a similar product which is much more comfortable.

Excellent value for money, highly recommend

3 months ago


At time of purchase 16/01/21 I could only find one negative review regarding this product. And now having had the chance to assemble and use this product, I can only assume that the person who posted the negative review worked for a competing supplier or was stupid. This machine is excellent value for money, very easy to assemble, I did so without the need for instructions, and suspect any reasonably intelligent person would be able to do the same. Looks and feels well made, come complete with everything you need to put it together. Started immediately and runs perfectly. The 32cc engine has more than adequate power. The supplied accessory, cutter blade is steel and looks like it can handle some good size scrub cutting work if need be. The harness is comfortable and the handle bars are a big improvement on the smaller D type handle. I highly recommend this product, an equivalent machine from one of the big hardware companies in NZ cost at least twice as much.

I was a little apprehensive buying the weed cutter, as the saying goes, you get what you pay for!! I found the assembly easy to follow, and it exceeded my expectations, a little on the heavy side, it powered through the overgrown weeds & still has line left Good on ya Trade Tested

I brought this for my partner who needed to clear a section of overgrown grass and shrubs. It works amazing. The weed eater wire was gone within a tank of gas but the brush cutter was fantastic

Noisy, inefficient or even ineffective Brush cutter

5 months ago


While operating The brush cutter, it generates annoying noise even with ear coverings against noise. What's worse is that the original 3-tooth blade is so powerless, too effort-costing to cut and uneasy to uninstall the 3-tooth blade given the tool kit provided or using our own tools. Until now, I still can't find a way to change it with the new 18-tooth blade I bought the other weeks.

If you are looking for a 'great' priced brush cutter with 'great' power then I would highly recommend this machine. I have been using it on some pretty tough brush and it works without missing a beat. Works even better when I used the 40 tooth blade (which was also a 'great' price ). Thank you Tradetested for making these 'great' priced products available to us.

Commercial Use

I bought this for a big one off job presuming its a cheap sacrifice if it packs up but 6 hours later under constant use it performed brilliantly, started first time every time and cut long grass and weeds with little effort. I was very impressed so now its in my arsenal of gardening weapons to stay.

Evangeline Auckland

Well worth it!

about 1 year ago


This was on sale at the time we purchased it. It does everything a weed cutter should and leaves a nice finish to your lawns. Heads up an extra line at the time of purchase, you will need it after 2-3 cuts. Besides that, really happy with the purchase. Definitely recommend.

A great cutter

Brought this tool to chop down 4 foot grass, did it easily and starts first time. I saw a similar one in a store for way more than what I paid

Gab Auckland

pleasantly surprised

about 1 year ago


ive never used a bicycle handle brushcutter before, but have used a weedeater. i thought getting one with the double handle will be fun, and a 32cc unit upgrade from a 26cc wouldnt be noticeable, but i was very pleasantly surprised at how well this unit runs, for quite an affordable price. will have to use it for a few more months to see if it stands the test of time.

Works well

Super easy to put together. Everything you need to put together is included in the box including a single strap but would recommend the shoulder strap harness you purchase separately at an additional cost. Comes with bobble head spring release cord head and tri blade for thicker overgrown areas. Instruction manual included in English and easy to follow and understand. Works well around the home and light overgrown areas.

Seems OK

over 2 years ago


Has plenty of power. 25 to 1 ratio fuel mix seems a bit over the top as it smokes excessively. I'm going to try it with a little less oil next mix & see how it goes. Appears to be reasonable build quality but time will tell I suppose. Pleased at the moment.

My trimmer turned up really fast from the time of purchase. Works wonderful and all I was after in a unit. However it turned up with the foam fore-grip torn. There was not sign of package interference and damage so must have been packed in this state. Almost 100% had it not been for this tear.

Jeff Auckland

Nice and easy to use

over 3 years ago


I like the brush cutter very much. It's nice and easy to use and powerful. One thing I feel like asking is whether the mix ratio has been tested and confirmed. The exhaust spills out lots of oil with the 25:1 ratio. So I wonder if it's too rich? Only used 2 times so will see how it goes. Thank you. Jeff

Light brush cutter

Out of the box Thursday afternoon, assembled, run, and then had a trip around the section looking for more bits to trim.. and then some more bits to trim..(did I say I was looking for more bits to trim). I am surprised, but it out performs and is more comfortable to use than my Stihl FS45. The reason I bought another trimmer was to have the option of a metal blade, (not able to do on the Stihl FS45). I certainly recommend Tradetested and the Flash trimmer...
