    Default Re: Scythe vs Weedeater

    I love my Austrian scythe. Way different than the american versions hanging in barns and antique stores.

    It's a light, sharp, fast tool that is a joy to use. I've cut hay and straw with mine, cleared brush up to 1/2" and trimmed around fruit trees, fence lines, buildings, etc.

    I recommend them to anyone who likes quality tools and can figure out how to maintain them.
    Kubota mx4700, Ford 8nx2, Timberking B-20 sawmill, Farmi 351 skidding winch, tiller, mower, bale chopper, etc. F250 5 speed I6. Stihl and shindaiwa saws.

    Every spring I drill 450 holes in maple trees, so I get to make about twelve cords of wood a year. Just me and the Gransfors Bruks splitting maul.

    Mine was made in Austria and has an aluminum handle. It used to be a joy to use when I was 40 (gotta pace yourself) but not any more.
