The Badger straight shaft grass cutter is an immensely powerful weed eater. It is the perfect assistant for detail work and cutting very tough brush. Unlike most gas string trimmers, this unit works flawlessly in fact, it is a powerful and easy-to-use tool that will serve for a long time. We rated the grass trimmer using a few main points of functionality, product features, and customer service, as explained in detail below.

a) Power

It is important to note that this is a gas-powered trimmer, so it is crucial that you keep it topped up before use. The transmission of the trimmer is encased in a vented aluminum casing to ensure it is corrosion-resistant and durable. Furthermore, the casing greatly reduces vibration allowing you to work in comfort.

Grass cutter with 52cc 2-cycle engine

The grass cutter has a 52cc, 2-cycle, full-crank engine that is excellent at reducing emissions and increasing fuel efficiency. The brush cutter blade is very fast and efficient once you crank up the power.

When it comes to operating power and what kind of brush-cutting, hedge-trimming, lawn equipment gives you more power, you can select between two different styles; 26cc and 52cc. They are both excellent trimmers with great performance. However, the power of each varies between the type of jobs you do. So, you can adjust the style you purchase, based on your yard needs and what vegetation you have to cut down.

b) Multifunction

This grass cutter comes with a grass trimmer attachment, brush cutter, and harness to easily manage heavy tall grass. While you can use it to cut brushes and grass, it is also very nifty for trimming weeds around corners. Additionally, you can also use it to trim any unruly hedges, weeds, or burning bush plants. Each attachment contains the best blade for the job.

Multifunction with different blade attachments

The shoulder straps are excellent for added support. You can adjust it to the opposite side shoulder from your dominant hand for more support at max power. Additionally, it is very easy to load the trimmer line and trimmer head, so your cuts are perfect. There is no doubt that this is a solid weed eater with a tri-tip blade to ensure efficiency.

Shoulder straps

Furthermore, when cutting tough vegetation like shrubs and vines, it is better to replace the cord feeder mechanism with a saw blade for the best performance. You will be done with clearing brushes in a matter of minutes, and the swap is easy using an Allen wrench end inserted through a hole.

c) Durability

Brush clearing especially thick brushes and long grass, is easier since the unit is built with an aluminum tube. Additionally, the trimmer is meant for residential and commercial use. It can also last 3 years with regular use. Fuel consumption is very low with this unit, and its a nice saw-type blade.

Durability

The unit weighted slightly heavier than expected. However, that should not be a problem once you get used to it. 23 lbs. might seem like a lot, but the trimmer makes up for it in durability and fuel consumption. You will barely use 1/2 a tank, even when maintaining shooting lanes. This gas string trimmer easily starts up with 3 pulls, so no burp is observed.

d) Ergonomic

The handles on the gas trimmer are like the handles on a bicycle, which makes the whole unit easier to control. The only failure that most customers were concerned about was that the non-throttle handle broke. However, this is an easy fix since Wild Badger will ship you a replacement immediately.

 

Additionally, the straight shaft trimmer with brush cutter keeps your feet safe as you guide it. However, it is recommended to wear protective boots to avoid maiming yourself. It is also easier to wear nice padded gloves, especially when working long hours, to avoid getting blisters.

The vibrations may be minimal (thanks to the rubber vibration-dampened handle), but after a long time, they make your palms sore. For an additional ergonomic feature, ensure to move the harness connection swivel upwards and towards the engine.

The robust aluminum tube can handle it, and as a bonus, this feature will prevent any back pain by balancing the unit well if you are a big-framed guy.

e) Quick Start

Most gas-powered trimmers are hard to start, especially if they haven’t been used in a while. However, this trimmer is easy to start and quieter than you would expect. This brush cutter takes no more than three string pulls to come alive, all while delivering longer life. That’s impressive for any gas-powered engine or lawn equipment, for that matter.

To improve the speed and functionality, you can change the quick line feed for a twin line cutting system using a max power line. A max power line improves any trimmer, regardless of the blade. This trimmer unit works with most brands of square-head end attachment-capable trimmers.

Wild badger Customer Service

Wild badger has excellent customer service. This is evidenced by many satisfied and returning customers. Since spare parts for this unit are cheap, you can stock spare parts directly from the company's website. As you buy spares, it is recommended to get a carb-adjusting tool in case your gas unit stalls.

With 24/7 reliable customer service, you can also get a new unit or a replacement free of charge, if yours stops working. As long as you are still covered by warranty.
