Loftness Battle Ax Mulching Attachment

Loftness Battle Ax Mulching Attachment

Loftness has introduced new models of its Battle Ax horizontal drum mulcher designed specifically for skid steers. Featuring a new rotor, tooth design and exclusive two-stage cutting chamber, the heavy-duty Battle Ax is designed for highly efficient vegetation management, including right-of-way maintenance, land clearing, forestry applications and more.

The Battle Ax is available with 61- and 71-in. cutting widths for skid steers with 50 to 120 hydraulic horsepower. Its 17-in. diameter rotor features built-in depth gauges, which function similarly to raker teeth on chain saws to prevent the attachment from engaging too much material at one time.

The Battle Ax rotor is optimized for use with all cutting tooth styles. Customers can choose from Quadco planer blades, hard-surface Quadco blades and carbide teeth. The cutting teeth are mounted to the rotor with a single hex bolt for easy removal on the jobsite. To further maximize performance, the Battle Ax features a two-stage cutting chamber, which allows material to be cut twice by the rotor and helps produce some of the smallest particle sizes in the industry. The primary shear bar is adjustable for customizing particle size.

Tigercat has released the newest addition to its off-road industrial line, the M726G four wheel mulcher.
