    our recommendation
    Scheppach petrol brush cutter MFH5200-4P (1.8 HP, 4in1 multitool - lawn trimmer, hedge trimmer, pruner, 250mm sword/chain from Oregon, swivelling) with quick coupler and belt
    178.99 EUR To the product

    Essentially there is

    • 4-in-1 multi tools and
    • 5-in-1 multi-tools.

    As you can probably guess from the names, you can use a 4-in-1 multi-tool four times and a 5-in-1 multi-tool five times. This means that different attachments can be attached to the "base" of the device - depending on what is required in each case.

    As a rule, multi-tool brushcutters come with a selection of these attachments:

    • brushcutter
    • chainsaw
    • hedge trimmer
    • pruner
    • grass trimmer

    In your search for a combination tool, you sometimes come across reduced 2-in-1 multi-tool solutions. These usually "only" include two different cutting systems, namely line and blade, so that they are suitable as a lawn trimmer (€31.33) and brush cutter (€139.99).

    First of all, of course, you should think about the work that needs to be done in your garden. It depends on how extensive the practical multi-tool has to be in order to meet all your requirements.

Nevertheless, you should attach the greatest importance to the quality of the versatile brush cutter - i.e. make sure that all individual parts are of high quality and durable.


    It must be easy to change the attachments of the multi-tool device. Furthermore, the garden tool should fit comfortably in your hand when you use it. Simply read the reviews of other customers to get a practical impression.
