This worked remarkably well, even after the downpour we had this evening. Of course, now it's all dirty...

I strap an extra tube of cutters to the handles on mine (that I have been using for the past 3 seasons :P) for when I get a little over zealous trying to cut tougher stuff.

Another tip on the tougher stuff - cut extra lengths of the line and keep them in your pocket, as they hit saplings they'll pull right out. Saves you running back and cutting more line.

Thanks for trimming the pumptrack! Spent a couple more hours out there tweaking the berms and added a roller.
It was quite pretty out there with a freshly mowed lawn :)

Berms were looking great! Thanks!

I guess the trip with your Kona and me back to the Muck Truck during Maybury trail day was just practice for future events :wink:
