Worked very well for a few hours. Then the handle broke. Looks to me like the holes in the handle were drilled too close to the edge and it split. It was clearing saplings like a champ up until that point.
If I kept the receipt I would have taken it back. My local hardware store wants $40 for a replacement handle. That’s around what I paid for the whole thing.
disappointed now only available in 3 bolt, its NOT a suitable replacement for its predecessor, I will be contacting a local American tool company to re-create the original 4 bolt but with a fiberglass handle with integrated steel sleeve inserts in bolt holes with rubberized handle gripping and internal reinforcing.

Disappointed. Second time using and mine broke off near the holes as well. Something seems wrong with the design or material.
Noah Davis –
Handle cracked at the holes and blade dings and bends super easy. Hardly worth hand filing because the edge will just be rolled and dinged again in an hour or two. Did the job (single job) that I baught it for, but would almost certainly not buy again.
