You can get 2.7mm on ebay. Sorry don't know if the 2.4 will cut as well  :(

2.4mm line may wear out marginally faster than 2.7mm

I've always bought commercial fishing mono (Google for suppliers) on all our petrol brushcutters. It's cheaper than buying a proprietary product and seems to last just as well.

As usual, the 'pros' will suggest a 'proper' line, but a slightly thinner line should work just as well, and you may find it's even better!

A few more swipes with the machine won't make that much difference anyway. You may be there a few minutes longer at the end of the day.
