The following hand tools were used in this test: a billhook, universal garden brush cutters, loppers and the Bushmatic. Productivity, ergonomics etc. were tested. Testers were asked to assess each tool using various criteria. The testers gave the best average overall evaluation to Bushmatic. They especially commended the Bushmatic's functionality and ease of use.
The study revealed that Bushmatic was more efficient to use than the billhook type of tool, when cutting stems less than 4 cm in diameter. One of the basic results of the research showed that even forest owners can efficiently attend to small sites with small diameter trees less than 4 cm (2 inches) using inexpensive hand tools.
