Removing Bamboo | First Time Using a Clearing Saw


One of the first things we need to do is clear
all this bamboo so I got one of these. I don’t know what it’s called in English but
whatever it is, it looks dangerous. Turns out that it’s called a clearing saw
or brush cutter for less powerful versions. It’s quite a common tool in Japan, most farmers
have them. I got mine at my new favourite store, Yamashin,
and they recommended this Ryobi, as it has a strong metal head and a powerful enough
motor for bamboo. I also needed a special blade. Let’s see how it goes once I figure out how
to get it started. Good look mate. That’s probably not a good idea. I should have mentioned, what I’m planning
to do is cut all of the bamboo right down as low as I can, and then keep on cutting
it as it tries to grow back. Eventually, according to what I’ve read online,
the roots, which are quite extensive under the ground should run out of energy and die. And then I’ll be able to plant something over
the top So after not knowing what I was doing in the
beginning I’ve managed to clear quite a lot of bamboo. I’ll report back in a later video as to
how effective it’s been. Thanks for watching.

  1. Good evening. Perhaps I was not attentive, but how do you plan to deal with felled plants? What fire regulations exist in your area?

  2. Should have just strapped a bunch of it to a tow strap and pulled it out of the ground with a kei truck
