WHAT WILL BE COVERED?
This course has a real practical bias, and whilst you will be covering basic risk assessments and health and safety legislation, you’ll be carrying out the inspection and routine maintenance on the brushcutter / trimmer. You’ll find out how to check the brushcutter blade is safe to use, and ensuring that it is balanced after sharpening; as well as respooling the line on to the trimmer head. You will discuss different types of brushcutter blade and find out what they are used for, and how to cut back growth in different types of terrain. You will be demonstrating both the swipe and swat methods of cutting too.
