Featuring a 48-inch cut width, the Peco Brush Blazer produces enough power to tackle trees up to 4 inches in diameter.
The Brush Blazer can clear underbrush and trees, performing trail maintenance, cleaning retention ponds or clearing right-of-ways. The unit can also clear hazardous vegetation management and do wildfire prevention. It is available with a 28-horsepower Briggs & Stratton Vanguard or a 27-horsepower Kohler EFI engine.
In optimal cutting conditions, the Brush Blazer can clear up to 6 acres per day. The unit features a 5-gallon tank that allows a run time ranging from four to six hours, depending on the job’s terrain and material.
The Brush Blazer’s rotary brush cutting system features two half-inch-thick steel discs, each with three hardened steel flail blades. The weight of the discs and the mass of the blades give the unit the strength and momentum needed to plow through tall grass, tough brush and woody material. The flail blades are easy to sharpen and are double sided for extra longevity.
The unit has two levers for speed and steering operating, similar to a zero-turn mower. An operator safety switch requires pressure to run the engine, ensuring operator safety during use. The self-propelled unit has infinitely variable speeds up to 5 mph.
The Brush Blazer features a hydrostatic track drive system for smooth, efficient operation in a variety of terrains and conditions. The track system and the front-end sled configuration provide exceptional traction while also ensuring stability when working on steep grades or slopes. Additionally, the track design minimizes the ground pressure of the 1,250-pound unit to only three pounds per square inch, making it an effective tool for even the most sensitive areas. And, because it is relatively small and compact, the Brush Blazer is ideal for hard-to-reach areas where commercial attachments, skid steers or other equipment may be too large.
The Brush Blazer weighs 1,250 pounds, is 59 inches wide and 96 inches long. It is easily transported on a standard landscape trailer or even in the bed of an 8-foot pickup truck.
