The ASV-focused S-Series Battle Ax, available through ASV dealers, produces a finer mulch with fewer passes due to Loftness’ shear bars and two-stage cutting chamber. It is geared to such tasks as land clearing, right-of-way maintenance and forestry mulching. ASV says contractors can use it to fell large trees, shave off materials and perform forward and reverse mulching.
The attachment is compatible with ASV’s RT-75 HD (Heavy Duty) and RT-120F (Forestry) Posi-Track loaders.
ASV says it partnered with Loftness to match the attachment to ASV loaders, as well as tested it to develop the proper specifications and features.
Those features include a new Battle Ax rotor with built-in depth gauges to prevent the attachment from engaging too much material. It also has high-strength steel housing, adjustable push bar and skid shoes, and minimal moving parts for simpler maintenance.
