Eterra has added a 74-inch model to its Typhoon series of mowers, which the company calls “a monster of a brush cutter.”

The Typhoon 74 is designed for heavy-duty skid steers and compact track loaders with at least 2,500 pounds of lifting power. The attachment requires 32 to 50 gallons per minute of hydraulic flow at up to 5,000 pounds per square inch of pressure. It can handle material up to 12 inches with the front gate removed and up to 4 inches with the gate closed. The company says it can “grind down large logs and stumps with slow and deliberate operation.”

The blade bar and housing have been increased in size from the Typhoon 60. The 74 runs on a piston motor rated at 6,000 pounds per square inch.

The mower features high-strength structural steel, double-reinforcement at stress points and a 1-inch-thick, T1-grade-steel blade holder. It has a two-blade design to cover more surface and maintain balance, the company says.

It operates on a direct drive system with no wear parts, bushings or additional gears, according to Eterra. It has replaceable skid shoes and a removable blade cover for enclosed or open cutting, and an anti-kickout feature on the front of the mower for extra grip when cutting trees. Its Lexan shield and window is “bullet resistant,” the company says.
