Product review. Brogio flail head

Fantastic attachment for your strimmer, pulverizing anything from soft herbs to thick briars and thinner branches

beats a mulching blad in that it does not stop when it hits a srock, thus saving your machine

Down side? it could kill you or anybody near by if a link detatches in mid strim

€50 seems steep, but as long as it lasts, money well spent

As a result of a fatal accident which was the inevitable result of the use of these things, they are now illegal anywhere within the EU. I'd think very seriously before you stick it on your strimmer, doofa.

It looks like a dangerous weapon.
One like the medieval knights on horse back used to use.
Pecan unused it riding a horse?

It looks like a dangerous weapon.
Looks like EU health and safety agree.

Follow the rules we don't want any nasty accidents.
It would be a dull place on here if any thing nasty happened to u.

TBH I think chainsaws would be, statistically, more dangerous

or clogs

Clogs, badly fitting or carelessly left on stairs, cause 300 accidents a year, closely followed by place mats (165), dustpans (146) and bread bins (91).

It does look like a awwsome tool if it wasn't for the risk of a link shearing off . I've flicked a stone through a window with a regular strimmer head. That just cost me the cost of a new DG unit but a flying chain link could cost far more.
I've got a combi strimmer and have a few tools for it. After looking in the catalogue and thinking it was a gimmick I went ahead and brought the edging tool ( trims the lawn edge ) and now find it such a useful tool. The only downside is how quickly the blade wears away. I've found the same problem with the brush cutter head too but have taken to cutting new blades myself out of steel blanks.
