But not to worry, your local rental professional is here to help!

He was generous enough to help guide us through the rental process.
What are your most common rental items in general?
During the winter our most common tool rentals are more indoor items like breakers, cut-off saws and heaters. In the summer it’s mostly outdoor items, primarily for clearing or “taking the yard back” so we rent the Orec Cyclone, Brush Rover and Samurai. Just recently we have [...]
Using your walk behind or ride-on field mower on a steep slope can be tricky business. The loss of traction and the sense of unease when brush cutting on a slope can make you uncomfortable. What’s more, the pull of gravity downhill along with the added safety risks to you and to the mower make it important to adjust your cutting style when brush mowing on a slope. Safety should always be a consideration when using a field mower but when using a field mower on slopes, it becomes that much more important. Here are some tips on how to stay safe when field mowing on slopes, as well as what to look for in a field mower if you need to cut slopes on a regular basis.

Before You Start: Make Sure You and Your Field are Ready to Brush Mow
1. In some cases you may be using your field and brush mower to mow an area that’s a mixture of brush and invasive plants that you want to get rid of, along with native and ornamental plants that you would like to keep. In such cases it can be a good idea to walk through the area and make note of what you need to cut and what you want to keep. You can then mark the plants you want to keep with fluorescent ribbon, cloth or other material that is easily visible. To avoid accidentally cutting the plants and shrubs you’d like to keep, it will also be a good idea to find a field and brush mower that offers the most control possible, like Orec’s Samurai Walk Behind Brush Cutter, with its front pivot wheel and full slip [...]
Comments Off on 12 Brush Cutting Tips to Maximize Productivity
The following brush cutting tips will save you time, energy, and hopefully the budget for your brush removal projects.
Brush Cutting Tip #1: Dress for Safety & Comfort. Be sure to dress for the weather while wearing as little loose clothing as possible. It’s also a good idea to wear brightly-colored clothing to make yourself visible to others.
Brush Cutting Tip #2: Give the area a walk-through before cutting. Areas that need brush mowing can be filled with stumps, rocks and trash. Make sure to go through the area to find and, when possible, remove these items. Your brush cutter will thank you for it!
Brush Cutting Tip #3: Mark any obstacles. Once you have done the walk-through, it’s a good idea to mark any obstacles that cannot be removed from the cutting area with fluorescent tape or cloth. That way you’ll see those stumps and rocks before your brush mower meets them. [...]

The Basics of Mulch and Mulching
Mulch is material that is spread around or over a plant in order to enrich the surrounding soil. Thus when we mulch a given plant or area with a professional mulcher mower, we are applying that material to that plant or area. Even when we are using a brush cutter such as Orec’s Cyclone Walk Behind Flail Brush Mower that cuts grass into clippings, we are mulching the area with those grass clippings. It is often said that mulching is integral to keeping your yard and the plants therein healthy, but why exactly is this the case?
Different Types of Mulching Materials
Mulch material can be either organic or inorganic. Inorganic mulches include gravel, plastic sheets and landscape cloths. Organic mulches can be such materials as leaves, hay and straw, pine needles and grass clippings. In general, Organic mulches may give your lawn or garden a more natural look [...]
