Loftness recently introduced the new Carbide Cutter G3 high-performance mulching head attachment for skid steers. This new generation product incorporates the latest cutting-tooth technologies and power drive systems, while maintaining the rugged reliability expected of Loftness equipment.
The Carbide Cutter G3 is available with 51-, 61- and 71-in. cutting widths. All models are offered with a variety of carbide-tipped and heat-treated steel teeth to match any job application. The precisely engineered spiral tooth pattern on the rotor ensures continuous tooth contact with the material being cut. For maximum cutting performance, the Carbide Cutter G3 features a two-stage cutting chamber with staggered counter teeth and a shear bar. This combination of features results in small particle sizes, while eliminating the jamming and wrapping issues associated with competitive products.
An optional primary-stage shear bar is also available for ultra-fine mulching.
The mulching heads operate at 1,700 to 2,150 rpm and feature a four-groove banded belt drive with spring-loaded tensioner. They come standard with a fixed-displacement, piston-style motor that delivers hydraulic power at 97 percent efficiency, which is much higher than traditional gear-type motors offer.

Prinoth’s new generation of mulcher vehicles now includes a model in the 275-hp class — the Raptor 300. Aside from the key unique selling points offered by all of Prinoth’s products, such as maximum efficiency and service life, this model places particular emphasis on adapting to meet a diverse range of customer requirements. The modular design has been further developed, allowing the Raptor 300 to be fitted with two different mechanical drive systems.
With three different types of undercarriage available, the vehicle can be customized to suit any possible requirements in terms of ground pressure, traction and overall width. Like its big brother, the Raptor 800 with 640 hp, this 275-hp machine features a ramped-up delta undercarriage on the rear.
Prinoth firmly believes that in the Raptor 300 it has not merely created just another vehicle, but that the company has also taken a real step forward in terms of innovation.

The C160 is an evolution of Rayco’s purpose-built mulcher line. With features such as a 160-hp diesel engine, large cab with side-entry door, impressive mulcher lift height and a hi-track undercarriage, the C160 is ideal for those who want a powerful mulcher in a compact chassis. The C160 weighs less than 18,000 lbs and has an overall width of just 83 in., making it easy to transport and nimble enough for operation on jobs where larger mulchers just don’t work.
The C160 rides on a hi-track steel undercarriage with two-speed travel. The hi-track design promotes longer track life by reducing debris packing in the track chain and keeps the drive components out of the hi-impact areas. Powerful final drives provide torque for climbing hills and allow the C160 to maneuver easily in difficult terrain.
Because it’s purpose-built, the C160 is loaded with features operators appreciate. Loader-style lift arms provide a mulcher lift height of 8 ft, making it easier for mulching taller vegetation. The spacious cab is equipped with a heated, air-ride suspension seat, and the rear fan is auto-reversing, reducing maintenance time. All gauges and controls are located on a large LCD display that includes a rearview camera.
