Brushcutter Training

If you work in agriculture, horticulture, landscaping and grounds maintenance, brushcutters and trimmers can prove to be an invaluable and highly reliable tool. Whilst they’re capable of functioning in difficult terrain, they also have the potential to be one of the most dangerous machines in the land-based sector.
