Easily rip through hard and soft woods with the new Bobcat 70-inch forestry cutter attachment. This forestry cutter model boasts up to 17 per cent more mulching production, allowing for greater production in less time. The 70-inch forestry cutter is ready to rumble with M2-Series compact track loaders — T770 and T870 — and the S850 skid-steer loader.
Easy to operate
The 70-inch forestry cutter attachment is easy to operate and can efficiently turn trees and underbrush to mulch. 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.
This model also features an adjustable push bar featuring three positions to accommodate the operator’s preferred setting. The gathering feature pulls brush and trees toward the centre of the drum for more efficient operation.
The double-tipped carbide teeth efficiently rip through trees and underbrush, providing long life and uptime protection for the attachment. A low number of forestry cutter drum teeth allow operators to reduce teeth replacement costs and ensure faster knockdown of trees.
