SAE standard parts, not metric.

Specifically designed swing out radiator and cooling systems, with onboard air compressor for easy maintenance.

Productivity of up to 3 acres per hour, depending on population, wood density, size of material and terrain.

Rotor is powered by a variable displacement hydrostatic pump which drives a fixed displacement motor. Final drive is through a toothed belt drive on the rotor end. Sealed rotor bearings.

The newly designed head incorporates cutter overlap and allows for quick changing of individual teeth.

Tip to tip cutting diameter of the rotor is 28 inches and the rotor is available in two different styles: swinging flair cutter and fixed tooth cutter.

The flail rotor is equipped with 54 sharpened, heat treated cutters, each independently, rotatively pin mounted.  The cutters are positioned in the drum by centrifugal force.  Should the cutter deflect, it is free to rotate 360 degrees around the pin mount to minimize damage.  Each cutter is overlapped on both sides by another cutter to deliver flat cut stumps.  One hundred percent of the cut width is cut by a cutter.
