I have been looking at used rotary cutters. Have come across a couple of options but they have the rubber strip as opposed to chains. Chains are pricy so I wouldn't want them either if I don't need them. I am most concerned about safety - this thing will be for woods use (rocks and all kinds of stuff could be thrown) and there will be some residential area in reasonalbe range. Do the rubber strips work for this or should I go chains only?

Thank You - Dana

Ne personal experience here, but I gotta think that for homeowner use the rubber would be just fine.

I have chains on mine and I can tell you that when I am mowing at over 6"s off the ground, they do not work. I think rubber would be better in that situation. I have thrown branches well over 50 feet all because they slip through the chains or go under them.
