SPECS SUMMARY

Overall Width75.2 in (1911 mm)
Cutting Width72 in (1829 mm)
Maximum Cutting Diameter8 in (203 mm)
Required HydraulicsStandard Flow
Cat® Industrial Brushcutters are designed for land management, utilities, site prep and maintenance work for brush, small trees, and dense vegetation. These machine and work tool combinations are designed to bring unparalleled speed and productivity for clearing overgrowth from highway medians, utility easements and for initial land clearing for housing, parks, and recreational areas. The Industrial Brushcutter has been developed to withstand rugged clearing applications and provide cutting capability up to 200 mm (8 in) diameter material.

Benefits and Features

Cat® Industrial Brushcutters are used for clearing overgrowth from highway medians, utility easements and for initial land clearing for housing, parks and recreational areas.

Fully balanced blade carrier holds four blades to prevent unnecessary vibration. Blade carrier weighing 409 kg (900 lb) provides unmatched blade inertia. High inertia energy allows blades to wing through dense brush.

Hardened reversible blades provide aggressive cutting of material and deliver high performance and durability. Blades are attached to blade carrier with three bolts that can easily be torqued from an access panel on the top of frame.

Anti-cavitation valve protects vital motor components improving tool life and ensuring adequate machine and tool performance.

Integrated accumulator in hydraulic system works in conjunction with the anti-cavitation valve to reduce pressure spikes to the drive motor. On shut-down, the accumulator discharges oil to the motor to slowly spin down the drivetrain. This reduces noise emitted by the motor and the cavitation.

Heavy-duty skids allow easy movement of the brushcutter through uneven terrain while maintaining stability of the work tool and machine.

Control and guide foliage into blades. Push bar extends beyond blades protecting bystanders.

The Industrial Brushcutter is designed to match with standard flow, high flow XPS, and high flow XHP hydraulics. Each hydraulic platform optimizes recovery time and reduces heat load on the carrier to work in high ambient temperature environments.

Improved tool life with reinforced corner gussets to provide strength in critical areas and also mulch cut material. Heavy Duty bearing case secures blade carrier to the drive system with a series of eight bolts.

Tool mounted and sealed from the elements, this holder includes all of the operation manuals and maintenance guides required for proper operation of the work tool.
