Bobcat’s 70-inch forestry cutter attachment boasts up to 17% more mulching production, allowing for greater mulch production in less time.
The 70-inch forestry cutter is approved for use with M2-Series compact track loaders — T750, T770, and T870 — and the S850 skid-steer loader. An additional 400-lb. counterweight is required when using the 70-inch model with T750 and T770 compact track loaders. Approved skid-steer and compact track loaders require high-flow auxiliary hydraulics to operate the attachment.
When the attachment is tilted forward, the material is thrown against the counter combs that reduce the wood to fine mulch and provide wear protection for the rear of the housing. An optional front gate can be lowered if the operator needs finer mulch.
While high-flow auxiliary hydraulics are required to operate the new 70-inch forestry cutter, the tube-style drum and spiral tooth pattern allow one tooth to engage at a time for smoother operation while using less horsepower. In addition, the forestry cutter comes standard with 2-speed travel for increased drum torque and improved productivity.
The model also features an adjustable push bar with three positions to accommodate the operator’s preferred setting. The gathering feature pulls brush and trees toward the center of the drum for more efficient operation.
