When to Replace a Brushcutter Head

A brushcutter like the Honda UMK435 is a fantastic tool for dealing with thick brush, straggling weeds, and any other plant matter that gets in your way. These machines are typically handheld and powered by a strong engine. The engine drives energy to the blade which is then used to eradicate the aforementioned plant matter. Unfortunately, when your blade comes into question, the entire operation of your Honda Brushcutter is put under the magnifying glass. The most common reason for brushcutter malfunction has to do with the blade. Here are the common problems that signify your need for a new brushcutter head.

1) Hub Cutting – When you operate your brushcutter long enough, you are bound to run into material that is too hard to cut through. When your machine can’t cut through a material, the flail-blade can potentially begin to push up and against the top hub of the device. Left alone long enough, your blade will eventually break off. If you notice blade flexing and hub cutting, make sure to get your brushcutter head replaced.

2) Dull Blade – Your brushcutter blade is the same as any other metal blade. Given enough rough use, your brushcutter blade will begin to dull. When your blade dulls, it makes it harder to cut through your targeted material. Given enough time, your blade can dull to an extent that renders your brushcutter device unusable. If you notice that your brushcutter blade has begun to soften its edge, make sure to line up a replacement.

3) Mutual Flail Blade Damage – When your blades begin to lose their edge, you naturally make up for it by pushing harder into the medium. You might not even realise that you are driving your brushcutter harder until you see that the flail blades have begun to damage one another.
