Designed for vegetation management jobs such as right-of-way maintenance, land clearing and forestry, the attachment has a new rotor, tooth design and two-stage cutting chamber.

Built-in depth gauges, functioning similarly to raker teeth on a chain saw, prevents the attachment from engaging too much material at one time. Loftness says this design is a better solution for managing material being fed into the attachment than ring-style rotors.

A variety of cutting tooth styles — including Quadco planer blades, hard-surface Quadco blades and carbide teeth — are available. Mounted to the rotor with a single hex bolt, teeth can be easily removed.

A two-stage cutting chamber allows material to be cut twice by the rotor, producing small particles. To customize the particle size, you can adjust the primary shear bar.
