I am very interested in what you posted to paleonet - do you really attach a cutting disc to a brushcutter? This is such a great idea if it would work. What about lateral pressure? I mean, an angle grinder or dedicated rock cutter is reinforced for pressure on the axle, but I would imagine a brushcutter is not. Am I worng? Also, how do manage it with its long arm - is it not dangerous? What about attaching discs - is it a standard fitting? And underwater - this is the bit that intrigues me most - do brush cutters really work under water??
If this is all true, this could be the answer I have been looking for!!
many thanks for your post

I am an amateur palaeo living near Sydney, Australia. I have a Honda brushcutter that I can attach a 230mm diamond saw or just a plain masonry cutting disc. Works brilliantly, even in hard to reach underwater shoreline locations. Has petrol engine.
