If your skid steer has a hydraulic flow of at least 18-20 gpm – 3,000 PSI would be ideal – then attachment distributor Skid Steer Solutions wants you to check out the Typhoon Brush Cutter from its sister company in Bellingham, Washington, Eterra Attachments LLC.
Of course, at pressures that high, you’ll need a case drain, so if your skid steer doesn’t have one, you would need to install the drain, according to Skid Steer Solutions.
That said, the Typhoon has the specs of an industrial-grade cutter, and Eterra says it’s capable of handling “extreme” jobs, cutting through 8-inch trees “like weeds.”
The manufacturer says the Typhoon Brush Cutter’s heavy push bar is attached – not a piece the company expects you to buy separately. The attachment has a cutting width of 60 inches. The push bar collapses trees, enabling the blades to reach deeper into the material.
According to Eterra, the design makes it unnecessary to sacrifice speed to achieve the best performance.
The attachment’s bolt-on cover, which can be easily removed, helps protect people and property when the brush cutter is at work. Eterra says the cover forces material back into the chute to be recut, providing consistent mulching in the process.
The Typhoon Brush Cutter attachment’s motor, a Permco gear drive, powers a direct drive spindle hub and has a hydraulic flow of 40 gpm and 4,000 PSI. Eterra says the machine’s two-blade design is superior to competitive products with three or even four blades, especially in terms of maximum clearing for the power required.
