  • Turn trees and underbrush from unsightly overgrowth to mulch  
  • Punch into large-diameter trees and bring the uppermost limbs quickly to the ground  
  • Compact size allows for any type of removal job, whether clearing every tree or selectively thinning stands 
  • Super Flow available on select models

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 are700-Sries and 800-Series compact track loaders and skid-steer loaders with high-flow hydraulics.

 

Heavy-Duty Carbide Teeth

Heavy-duty carbide teeth on the standard rotor drum rip through hard and soft woods, providing long life and uptime protection.

Depth Control Rings

Depth control rings on the optional drum limit engagement of the cutting teeth for more efficient operation and a consistent mulch. (Available on the 50-inch and 61-inch drum mulcher).

Two-Speed Hydraulic Motor

Two-speed hydraulic motor delivers increased drum torque and automatically shifts to meet the demands of every job. A single-speed motor is also available with a 61-inch drum.

Compact Size

Compact size of the drum mulcher accommodates any tree removal job.

Reinforced Push Bar

Reinforced push bar and optional low-profile front gate provide optimal visibility to the drum and cutting teeth.

Hydraulic Drum Brake

Hydraulic drum brake brings the drum to a stop within 20 seconds after deactivating the auxiliary hydraulics.

Redesigned Hydraulic Block & Drive Components

Redesigned hydraulic block and drive components enhance durability.

Bolt-On Skid Shoes

Bolt-on skid shoes are replaceable for greater convenience and operator uptime.

Durable Connection Points

Durable connection points are designed for long-term operation and operator uptime.

Pressure Gauge

Pressure gauge, standard on the 50-inch and 61-inch drum mulcher, allows operators to better monitor drum speeds.

Hose Clamps & Hose Sling

Hose clamps and hose sling protect hydraulic hoses from kinking, contact wear and entanglement.

Rear Debris Chains

Rear debris chains obstruct debris thrown toward the rear of the attachment.

Top Tasks

Clear trees and brush for:

  • Utility line and right-of-way maintenance
  • Site preparation
  • Clean and maintain property
  • Disaster mitigation
  • Cut firebreaks
  • Orchard and vineyard maintenance

How It Works

Teeth on a horizontal rotating drum rip through standing trees and thick brush, turning the material into a bed of mulch.

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.
