Just last week, I purchased Oregon's two-tooth blade with curved form which proved to be excellent in use, especially using a technique of bringing the blade vertically down onto brambles and seeing them reduced to small pieces.

Interesting Simon.
I have the three way mulching blade, but it is apparently not suitable for anything but the heavy duty machines due to the blade weight causing damage to the drive train.
No issues on my big Kawasaki, which goes through eveything very nicely with it on.
Would you say that your blade is suitable for more midrange tools??

Terry, I only have experience of using it with my Husqvarna 143RII (41cc / 1.5kW). I don't know how it'd do on other less powerful machines.

Anyone have experience of the Oregon Jet-Fit Techni-Blade system? My local dealer was suggesting I try them a few weeks ago.
