    Hello Everyone,


    Wondering what brand and model of road side slasher everyone might be using. Looking for a slasher to replace a heavy duty Superior 7ft (2100mm) slasher.

    Any info, thoughts or feedback good or bad would be appreciated.

    Good Morning Peter,

    Shire of Esperance recently purchased ​a Kanga KSHR210 with upgraded gearbox linkage, Clutch Upgrade and cutter bar upgraded.
    Pricing was good (Sub 10K), spare parts good - Victorian based.  Has good references from local contractors. We are happy so far.

    Replaced a Howard EDH 210 for which parts were getting harder to source.

    ​Hi Peter,

    Here at Lockyer Valley Regional Council we are currently using Howard EHD Gal Top slashers (2100mm &1800mm). To date they have proven to be very reliable.
