What is the difference between a petrol grass trimmer and a brushcutter?
Grass trimmers are designed for trimming areas of the lawn where the lawnmower is unable to cut such as around fence posts and other obstacles. MITOX grass trimmers feature a loop handle and a curved shaft design which make it easier for precise trimming jobs. Click here to see the Mitox range of curved shaft petrol grass trimmers. Brushcutters are more suitable for clearing wider areas of rough grass and weeds.
How do I choose which would be the best brushcutter for me?
Choosing the correct brushcutter depends on the amount of work you will be carrying out, how large an area needs to be cleared and what kind of vegetation is being cleared. Click here for some advice on choosing the most suitable brushcutter for you.
What are the differences between SELECT & PREMIUM brushcutters?
Brushcutters in the PREMIUM range are powered by upgraded engines and are fitted with Champion spark plugs for reliability. Other benefits include the Soft Start recoil system which reduces the force required to start the engine and the heavy duty gearbox which ensures durability in the harshest conditions. MITOX brushcutters in the PREMIUM range come with a 5 year domestic warranty for extra peace of mind (T&C'S apply).
What fuel / oil mix ratio should I use in my MITOX 26U SELECT brushcutter?

If something goes wrong with my brushcutter how do I fix it?
To keep any warranty valid, all repairs should be carried out by a MITOX approved service dealer. You can find your closest dealer here.
How do I mix the fuel to use in a 2-stroke brushcutter?
The most effective way to mix the fuel and oil mixture is by using a premium fuel mixing bottle. Simply pour 1 litre of fresh fuel through a filtered funnel into the mixing bottle and then add two-stroke engine oil up to the required ratio marked on the bottle, securely fasten the cap and shake to ensure it is fully mixed.
What is the best way to store my brushcutter over the winter months?
To ensure that the brushcutter is ready for use after the winter, there are a few steps to take before it is stored away in the garage or garden shed. For maximum protection against damage caused by Ethanol, we advise adding B3C Ethanol Shield to the fuel and is run through the engine. This is the most effective way to protect the engine as residues will still be present if the fuel tank is drained. Check the cutter blade for any damage and to prevent trimmer line from becoming brittle, remove the spool and store it in a damp place. Ensure the brushcutter is clean and dry.
Is the 26U SELECT brushcutter supplied with a harness?
Yes, a padded twin shoulder strap harness will be included.
How much assembly is required when I purchase a MITOX brushcutter?
There is a small amount of assembly required, the brushcutter guard, nylon line head / blade and the handles require installation.
What fuel should I use in my brushcutter?
You should only use fresh unleaded petrol and semi-synthetic oil specially designed for two stroke engines. We advise using B3C Ethanol Shield 2-Stroke oil to prevent engine damage caused by Ethanol found in petrol. Click here to learn more about fuel related engine issues.
