Machined from high-strength one-inch-thick steel, the disc meets strict specifications for well-balanced rotation and high-speed cutting performance. The disc mulcher can cut trees up to 14 inches in diameter and turn trees up to 6 inches in diameter into beds of mulch. The disc mulcher can cut at ground level and supports an impressive vertical reach.
Case-hardened steel teeth are fixed to the inside of the deck shell, and they mulch material as the rotating disc carries trees and brush through the attachment. These four-point teeth can be easily sharpened and rotated to maximize efficiency. The planter knives in the center of the disc eliminate dead zones for effective, easy land clearing, regardless of the attachment’s position.
The hydraulic gear motors efficiently handle the bulk of tough land-clearing applications with ease. These gear motors generate high torque and collectively support three hydraulic flow ranges: standard, high and super flow. The gear motors also feature a relief valve to protect against overpressurization.
A push bar on the front of the disc mulcher helps operators direct the fall of trees and heavy brush for productive processing.
The spindle bearings are lubricated with gear oil that should be replaced once every year or every 500 hours, whichever comes first. Operators have easy access to the disc teeth, the motor hardware and the spindle hardware, which should be inspected daily, or every 10 hours, to ensure optimum performance.
A steel covering shields the hydraulic motor, protecting it from contact and damage.
The disc mulcher features two intake configurations to optimize the intake flow of varying tree sizes and material densities.

The disc mulcher functions like a flywheel, storing kinetic energy to slice through tough material and shred it into mulch. The stored energy minimizes the performance demands on your loader and helps reduce operating temperatures.
There are several techniques for operating the disc mulcher, making it a versatile and effective land-clearing attachment.
The following components are required to operate this attachment and must be purchased separately:
Forestry Application Kit Is Required
Designed to help protect you and your investment in the toughest conditions, the forestry application kit must be installed on the loader to operate the disc mulcher attachment. The exclusive forestry door protects against flying debris and objects.
The Forestry Application Kit Includes:
