weed cutter double blade diy homemade

Recommended Posts

sorry for the inconvenience, I would like to make a similar tool to mow the weeds and bushes in my garden, I do not have a motor brush cutter, every time I have to borrow it. I think this rake-like tool that cuts like a razor and swings like a hoe could be useful to me, do you think it is efficient or would it be better to adopt a classic scythe? thanks, I wait for opinions and suggestions.

I built it in the afternoon, only it came very heavy, I took a 30x30 x 2 mm box about 38 cm long, I welded teeth made with 8 mm construction iron, 13 cm long 6 pieces, welded about 5 cm l 'one from the other, in the reverse direction I welded the foil of a 4 cm wide gate spring, as a handle I put a rusty iron tube at the head, like a t-shaped razor rake. I broke it works like a hoe but it is very heavy, from the side of the blade I cut from the side of the prongs I pull the mowed grass and I make sheaves. I did something wrong I'm sure.

about 3000 square meters let's say 5000 square meters with the neighboring land, it is aesthetically very ugly and heavy, perhaps the scythe would be more suitable.

there are no goats, animals and sheep around, unfortunately human goats as neighbors, the motorized brush cutter is a problem, I have to lend it to myself, transport it with my small car, then the cockpit smells of petrol, while a 2p manual tool does it I hide in a hidden corner and use it when needed. .
