I am actually looking for a brush cutter also. The integy one cuts and reserrates. The billy easton butcher just cuts brushes. I am going to get the billy easton cutter because i rarely resserate my brushes.

The Trinity billy easton is twice the price of the Integy, from what i know they pretty much do the same cuts.

The Billy Easton I am pretty sure just cuts brushes. The integy does cutting and can reserrate brushes.

Unrelated, but is the advantage of serrating brushes worth the brush cutter and the work? (i mean, at what level of racing, does it become "worth it")?

I have both. The two are very different. The Billy easton version is the only way to go for cutting brushes. It has a lot of possibilites for just about any kind of cut you can think of. The Integy unit is OK but its half the price for a reason. The serrator side works but not the best. If your just looking to do a few simple cuts it will work fine.

If the brushes arent discolored in anyway after running them then they can be re serrated. But if they are discolored then they cant. They will look either rainbow, or silver looking on th edges. Honestly i would rather just buy new brushes each time I redo a motor so i know that I am getting the full potential of the brush. Cutting the brushes are a different story. I have seen so many cuts they all do different things. You just need to play around with different cuts and see what the gains and losses of the cuts are.

the integy one is good but you have to sharpen the serrater and heat treat it. i us this one. oh and the cutting disk i us a dremal disk instead of the saw blade disk.
