None that will not void your warranty.  There have been some posts of people adapting to use a blade.  Ego does make one for the European market but it has not made its way across the pond yet.
Do a search on brush cutter on this forum and you should find some info if you are still interested.

Just to be clear, the brush cutting blade is for the Powerhead string trimmer attachment, not Ego’s regular string trimmers:

They also make a stand alone brush cutter.  Still do not understand why the offerings in the UK / EU are so much wider than in the US. They just introduced an entire commercial line. (I guess it might have something to do with the $5/gal petrol)

Thanks!  But that terrifies me!  I may take the bottom 2 inches off of my fence with that cutter. :)

Think of how much easier it will be to trim around the fence with 2 more inches of clearance!

The reason the offerings in the UK / EU are so much wider than in the US probably has something to do with the fact that customers in the EU seem to be less litigious than us...:)
