Morbark’s mid-size Rayco C275 Forestry Mulcher can be used for clearing small trees, underbrush, and a variety of unwanted vegetation across a wide range of environments. The C275 delivers 275 hp in a compact, low-ground-pressure package.

The C275’s 109-gpm cutter system provides hydraulic power to the Predator mulcher head, which boasts a 77.5-inch cutting width, while the steel undercarriage and powerful final drives allow operators to tackle difficult terrain. The C275 also will accept a DENIS CIMAF mulcher head.

Rayco’s elevated cooling design keeps engine and hydraulic temperatures within their limits even in harsh environments. To minimize maintenance, an operator can activate a reversing fan from the cab to clear the debris screens, helping extend service intervals. The debris screens are easily removable when manual cleaning becomes necessary, and the rear door opens to allow unrestricted access to the debris screen and engine radiator.

The cabs are climate controlled and sealed from dust and debris to maintain operator comfort. The operator’s seat is high-backed and heated, with adjustable armrests and air-ride suspension. For safety, the cab is certified to meet ROPS, FOPS, and OPS specifications and is equipped with a rooftop escape hatch. High-output LED work lights and a backup camera enhance rearward visibility.

Other key features include Rayco’s exclusive track tensioning system with monitor, which alerts the operator to over-tension situations and provides easier access to track tension grease fittings; hydraulic tilt cab to access pumps and other components easily; and the hydraulic rear winch.
