  • Remove up to 8 in. trees and 12-in. stumps. Shred underbrush and woody materials into beneficial mulch in just minutes.
  • Severe-duty design utilizes oversize 2.5 in. sealed rotor bearings and double carbide-tipped teeth for long term durability. Heavy-duty push bar is useful for toppling tress or brush, and helps protect the carrier.
  • Two-speed hydraulic system utilizes available horsepower. When preset pressure level is attained, the motor automatically shifts to a higher displacement, increasing torque for reduced stalling and faster rotor speed recovery. Prominently positioned gauge lets an operator easily monitor hydraulic operating pressure for additional efficiency.
  • Hydraulic brake stops the rotor in less than 10 seconds, eliminating the "freewheeling" common with other designs.
  • Optional hydraulic cooler is available for operation in high-ambient temperature conditions
  • With a 60-in. opening and 30 teeth, high-capacity rotor takes big bites out of trees and stumps. Rotor is balanced to deliver superior large-material knockdown and shredding performance. Also works well below soil level for chewing out stumps.
  • Smooth rotor reduces material drag and horsepower requirements. Internal counter-combs help shatter incoming material, creating a finer mulch.
  • Optional hydraulically operated mulching plate retains material within the shroud of maximum material shredding.
