What people are saying ...

The Ground Clearer did a great job around my top pond area yesterday, so looking very smart. As I have said and will say again, this is a great little machine.

Judy, Buckinghamshire

Already big fan of ground clearer having owned one for about seven years. Recently needed some repair after a lot of work on nine  neglected acres…. We are now also fans of Reddifast and their superb customer service. Special thanks to June who kept us informed of progress with numerous texts and phone calls and Anthony who worked through his break so that we could have our ground clearer back the same day, saving us a return trip from Wales! Can’t recommend this company enough!

Solihull Conservation Volunteers has been Using the Reddifast ground clearer for some time and found it extremely useful for meadow management, greatly increasing an area that can be cut by one volunteer and for bramble clearing it reduces the effort required considerably.  The ground clearer has increased the efficiency of the group so much on these tasks that we have just obtained a second machine.

I was pleasantly surprised by the ability of the Ground Clearer to do its job. The machine looks quirky but is certainly powerful enough to cut through the toughest overgrowth.

I am thrilled with my Ground Clearer and doubt if any other machine would perform as well as this one. I have 6 acres of land and use it all the time.
