Buddyboy thanks for your concerns I fully appreciate them. The brambles and bushes are as you guessed almost head height. I had taken advice from my brush utter supplier at the weekend and I can assure you that I lost a pound on two in perspiration today wearing all if the safety kit he sold me. We are doing "surveys" of narrow strips of the land figuring out what's in each strip before we attack it with the brush cutter on a couple of occasions we have had to remove an old gate and a fence post before we went in.
As I stated earlier the advice given has been marvellous and I thank you for your concerns. I do hope other members have found this useful as well .
i would urge any one else using this advice to make sure that they use the correct footwear,eye protection and gloves before taking on a task like this.
one small tip from me " the old brambles are horrendous all the gloves I tried were rubbish then I found a pair of welder gloves in a friend shed, thick leather/suede that come halfway up your forearm,used them on tuesday and wend out and bought a pair this morning best £19 I've spent so far on this project
