Reasons to Rent This Brush Cutter From YardRents
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the maximum slope on which I can operate the brush cutter? Never mow on a slope greater than 15 degrees. Always mow across the face of slopes, never up and down or diagonally. Do not attempt sudden starts or stops when mowing or on a slope. Avoid sudden turns and use extreme caution when changing directions on a slope.
How does it work? As you walk, tall vegetation if first bent over and cut about 3" off the ground. The debris is then worked inside the cutting deck, finely chopped and forced down into the ground. The deck is designed specifically to process vegetation as quickly as possible so that debris won?t interfere with cutting action.

Got the Goat Brush Cutter today- I watchedsome videos of the equipment online and was a little intimidated by it BUT our yard was covered in black berry bushes & with rocks as the surface we needed something strong. I ordered the equipment for 6-8 hours because my husband was not looking forward to doing the yard and wanted time to "relax" if needed. Anyways, he ended up doing the entire yard in about 3 hours. We contacted YardRents to see if we could get a break if returned the equipment early and they did give us a bit of a credit which is awesome and now we know the all mighty husband can tackle the yard in a couple hours and still relax when doing yard work! We will definitely be returning customers until we are out of the rock yard house.

Our huge backyard had grown into a jungle since we had neglected it all year and we had a serious blackberry problem that our rental agency didn't bother to warn us about. I swear we also had undiscovered plant species growing in our yard...it was a mess...
It all became too difficult for us to manage with the tools we had (weed whacker, machete, cheap clippers) so we called a landscaping guy to get an estimate which ended up being $600! And he said it would take him 12 hours to clear it (with two other guys working with him)! All of us are students so of course none of us could afford that.
We decided to try to rent some equipment and clear the place ourselves. I set up a drop off and pickup time with YardRents for the High Weed and Brush Cutters and it just cost us a little over $100. We rented it for 6 hours but the equipment is so good that we ended up clearing the whole front and back yard (with just two of us working) in under 2 hours. We were unfamiliar with the brush cutter but the guy who dropped it off, Loren, was super awesome and was really helpful in getting us set up. He was also right on time with drop off and pick up and nice enough to check in with us to see how we were doing.
We saved some serious time and money and were completely impressed with the customer service. Hopefully I won't be in a situation like this again, but if I was I wouldn't hesitate to call them again.
