When it comes to land clearing, you need more brute force to accomplish the task than what can be done with the typical landscaping attachment. Here are some work tools to consider when the job requires clearing trees, brush, rocks and stumps:
TOOTH CUTTING TECHNOLOGY ENSURES HIGH PERFORMANCE
Loftness’ Carbide Cutter G3 mulching head attachment, which fits on compact track loaders is available with 51-, 61- and 71-inch cutting widths. Offered with a variety of carbide-tipped and heat-treated steel teeth for any job, the spiral tooth pattern on the rotor ensures the teeth are continuously in contact with the material being cut. A two-stage cutting chamber has staggered counter teeth and a shear bar, which results in small particle sizes and eliminating jamming and wrapping issues. The mulching heads operate at 1,700 to 2,150 rpm and have a four-groove banded belt drive with spring-loaded tensioner. A fixed-displacement piston-style motor delivers hydraulic power at 97 percent efficiency.
SKID STEER MULCHER CLEARS STANDING TREES
Clear brush, trees and stumps to ground level with FAE’s line of hydraulic forestry mulchers for skid steers, which includes the UML/SSL-150 VT. Useful for both high and standard flow machines, the attachment mulches standing and fallen trees up to 8 inches in diameter. Equipped with a 110cc variable displacement hydraulic motor, double relief valve, adjustable skids and more, the mulcher’s rotor can be equipped with different tool options based on the application. The UML/SSL-150 VT has a 63-inch working width, 74-inch overall width, 32 teeth and 2 side scrapers.
MOVE DEBRIS WITH ROCK AND TREE ATTACHMENT
Move large trees, heavy rock and other debris with Ez Spot Ur’s Rock and Tree Handler, which fits any carrier equipment with a universal quick attach system. When attached to a double cylinder rotating base, the Rock and Tree Handler offers 127-degree rotation. Two 3- by 6-inch clamp cylinders secure loads. The 320-pound attachment features jaws that spread from 5.5 to 46.5 inches, and are available with rubber tips for handling trees.
TREE SAW HANDLES THICK BRUSH AND SHRUBS
Increase flexibility and performance with the X Series Rotating Tree Saw from Vail Products, which features 180 degrees of drift-free, stable, hydraulic powered rotation. A high-torque motor reduces stalls and jams, and the attachment’s hydraulics extends motor life. Features include in-cab OEM rotation controls, a rotary actuator that enables a precise angle of attack and a quick-stop blade system for safe operation.
TURN YOUR BUCKET INTO A RAKE
Rake rocks and other debris with an existing bucket with the BR-S Bucket Rake from Anbo. Designed for use with skid-steers or other machines with buckets, the BR-S fits carriers ranging from 15 to 100 horsepower. Taking only minutes to install, the BR-S has 3-inch tine spacing, a sturdy bracing bar to spread the load and a raised retaining ridge to keep rocks from falling out. A forward cradle area boosts volume capacity.
