When I saw the first photo I expected to see a snowplough on the other end. Thinking about it, maybe a plough would be useful in pushing aside some of the debris..... :)

I nearly added a thought about putting a rotating brush on the end, when I made my comment about blades! :D

All it needs is a set of whirling razor blades on the sides and it can do the pruning as it goes!
I saw one in SMT about 30 years ago which had a sideways-mounted strimmer - terrifying! The Risk Assessment would make interesting reading...

I wondered that... Or a length of draught excluder to sweep the track? Or both?
