Forestry Applications Kit

Designed to protect you and your investment in the toughest conditions, the forestry applications kit must be installed on the loader to operate the forestry cutter attachment. The exclusive forestry door protects you from flying debris and objects. Other benefits include ISO 3449 Level II Falling Object Protective Structure (FOPS) and debris guards for muffler, lights and hydraulic components. 
 
The forestry applications kit includes: 

  • Fire Extinguisher: Mounted in the cab for quick access in an emergency. 

  • Forestry Door (3/4-inch laminated polycarbonate): The forestry cutter attachment will not operate without the door installed. Emergency exit allows removal of front door, if necessary. 

  • Front and Rear Light Guards: Ensures branches and debris won't break lights. 

  • Hydraulic Quick Coupler Guard: The guard, along with no exposed fittings on the hoses, helps protect the couplers, hoses and wire harness from falling trees and branches. 

  • Level II FOPS: (meets ISO 3449) Protects operator and cab from falling trees and objects. 

  • Muffler Guard: Protects tailpipe from damage and reduces material buildup in the engine compartment (except on Tier 4 Forestry Application Kits). 

  • Polycarbonate Top, Rear, and Side Windows: (1/4 inch or 1/2 inch polycarbonate) Protects operator and maximizes visibility.

Additional Details

Built of high-strength, steel-body construction, the drum mulcher attachments provide leading durability and the performance to tackle tough land-clearing jobs. These drum mulchers punch into and pulverize trees up to 8 inches in diameter. The lineup of drum mulchers replaces the forestry cutter attachments.

The drum mulchers are available in 50-inch, 61-inch and 72-inch cutting widths. Approved carriers are 700-Series and 800-Series compact track loaders and skid-steer loaders with high-flow hydraulics.
