Metal brush-cutting head for trimmer

One area where the EGO trimmers fall behind the competition is the ability to add a metal brush-clearing blade.  For certain applications like clearing blackberry brambles strings just aren't strong enough and access is too difficult with a hedge trimmer.  Please consider adding a brush clearing option like a metal blade attachment.

I have an Echo 58v String Trimmer that I wanted a brush blade for, but neither Home Depit or Echo was able to come up with an answer. Because of that, I bought the EGO String Trimmer Attachment for my EGO Power Head and the brush cutter blade and adapter kit on Amazon.

Ignore the description where it said for Stihl; it works for EGO.

Ryan. Ego makes a brush cutter for the UK/EU market. Hopefully they will bring it to the US/NA market soon.

EGO really needs to step up their accessory selections. Instead of introducing more and more tools, introducing asked for accessories would be a really nice move toward customer loyalty. Especially since this mod has likely voided the EGO warranty. 
William, don't misunderstand me, I feel your frustration.

Oregon Mike, not a concern since this is a simple attachment tool. Technically, all I did was remove the string head and replaced with the blade and the adapter. I can easily reverse the change if/when I want to use the string trimmer, but I already have a dedicated string trimmer.

Looks like it was a real simple swap so that's good. I just wish EGO would provide those kinds of things that could be swapped and not void the warranty.
