A mini excavator is a time saving tool. Time is money and if you already have a mini excavator you know they are great workhorses that save hours on the job. By adding a brush mulcher to your mini excavator you can do even more with it. You can cut any plants, brush or small volunteer trees that have kept you from using certain areas of your property. These areas can now be quickly and easily cleaned with the brush mulcher head.
Blackberries can be a huge problem. They grow in dense thickets and are covered in thorns, making them tough to clear. With a mini excavator brush cutter you can wipe out blackberry bushes in a matter of hours. These same bushes would take weeks, of sweat and blood, to cut out by hand. The sides of ditches and canals tend to be steep and dangerous to mow. As a result, they usually end up as brushy eyesores and can be fire hazards during dry times. With a mini excavator brush cutter you can drive along the bottom of the ditch or canal while safely clearing the sides. If the canal or ditch bottom is inaccessible you can drive along the sides, extending the arm down the sides, clearing the drainage area from above. The brush mulcher head is also perfect for reducing fire hazards in small wooded areas. The arm of the mini excavator allows you to reach between trees that are too close together to drive between. The mini excavator brush cutter will also allow you to easily clear fence lines and maintain trails in the heaviest of brush. Any area that needs spot clearing, has uneven ground or is filled with invasive plants is a prime candidate for the use of a mulcher on a mini excavator. These areas can now be cleared in a fraction of the time it would take if they had to be cleared manually.
With the easy to swap heads, small footprint and high maneuverability. The brush mulcher head is so versatile you will wonder how you ever got along without one.

Outdoor car covers, when used properly, can help to protect your investment from a wide variety of things, including wind borne particles, ultraviolet radiation and bird droppings. Care must be taken when using these covers though as improper use can actually damage your car. A cover that doesn’t fit properly can flap in the wind, scratching the finish, or trap dirt between the cover and the paint, which can also lead to scratches. There are three types of outdoor car covers to consider so you purchase the one that best meets your needs.
Breathable outdoor car covers are the choice of many although they aren’t water resistant. With this type of cover, cotton or cotton/polyester blends are used to protect the vehicle. Most prefer the 100% cotton version as it is less likely to scratch the paint which some have found to be a problem with polyester blends. One thing to consider when purchasing this type of cover is your convertible roof, if you have one. Cotton leaves lint balls on a canvas top so other options may need to be looked into.
Water resistant outdoor car covers come in a wide ranges of weights and materials, allowing you to choose the one that best meets your needs. Most water will be repelled when a cover of this type is used and yet air will still be able to circulate around the car so condensation doesn’t become an issue. Ultraviolet screens are woven right into the mesh of most of these covers to prevent sunlight degradation and manufacturers have taken steps to ensure these covers are resistant to mildew. A variety of types are offered so compare all to find one that meets your needs.
Waterproof car covers tend to be made of plastic or a plastic coated fabric. Although this keeps rain off of your car, condensation may build up and lead to paint damage. Many choose to use this type in conjunction with a breathable outdoor cover to get the benefits of both. Care must be taken so animals don’t make the covers their winter home.
You may find that outdoor car covers aren’t to your liking after reading this. There are many benefits to having a cover on your car though. The biggest concern needs to be the fit of the cover. A properly fitted cover is the best protection for any vehicle.
