When it comes to brush cutting attachments for excavators, Eterra offers a range of options suitable for different applications. In this post, we will compare three types of Eterra brush cutting attachments for excavators that can help you choose the right attachment for your job. We'll take a closer look at the Cyclone rotary bush cutter, EX-30/EX-40 flail mowers, and hydraulic string trimmer.
Cyclone Rotary Bush Cutter
The Cyclone rotary bush cutter is a heavy-duty attachment designed for heavy brush clearing, land clearing, and forestry applications. It is available in two models, the 48" version and the 60" heavy-duty version. Here are some specifications for each model:
|Specification||Cyclone Rotary Bush Cutter - 48"||Cyclone Rotary Bush Cutter - 60"|
|Cutting Capacity||6" Diameter||6" Diameter|
|Blade Type||Hardened Steel||Hardened Steel|
|Recommended Excavator Size||10-20 Tons||15-30 Tons|
|Weight||1,300 lbs||1,760 lbs|
The Cyclone's blade design enables it to cut through dense vegetation with ease. With its hydraulic drive system, it can cut up to 6-inch diameter trees and brush. Its blade is made of hardened steel, and its design reduces the chance of stalling or binding in thick brush.
EX-30 and EX-40 Flail Mower
The EX-30 and EX-40 flail mowers are brush cutting attachments designed for heavy-duty applications. These attachments feature a horizontal drum with a series of knives, or flails, attached to it. The flails spin at high speeds, striking and cutting through vegetation. Here are some specifications for each model:
|Specification||EX-30 Flail Mower||EX-40 Flail Mower|
|Cutting Capacity||4" Diameter||6" Diameter|
|Cutting Width||50", 60", 72"||60", 72", 84"|
|Number of Flails||48||72|
|Recommended Excavator Size||6-12 Tons||10-20 Tons|
|Weight||600 lbs||950 lbs|
The EX-30 flail mower is capable of cutting up to 4-inch diameter trees and brush, and the EX-40 flail mower is designed to handle even larger vegetation. Both models are available in various widths, making them ideal for clearing overgrown fields, roadsides, and other areas where traditional mowers cannot reach.
Hydraulic String Trimmer
The hydraulic string trimmer is a smaller attachment designed for trimming and cutting grass and weeds in tight areas. It is equipped with a high-speed cutting head that uses a string to cut through vegetation. The hydraulic drive system powers the cutting head and enables it to operate at higher speeds than traditional gas-powered trimmers. The attachment is available in various widths and can be used to trim grass along roadsides, around buildings, and other hard-to-reach areas.
|Specification||Hydraulic String Trimmer|
|Cutting Capacity||Grass and Weeds|
|Cutting Width||24", 36", 48"|
|Recommended Excavator Size||1-5 Tons|
In terms of pricing, the Cyclone and EX-30/EX-40 are more expensive than the hydraulic string trimmer due to their heavy-duty design and construction. The Cyclone
and EX-30/EX-40 are suitable for heavy brush clearing and land clearing, while the hydraulic string trimmer is better suited for trimming and cutting grass and weeds in tight areas.
When choosing a brush cutting attachment for your excavator, it's important to consider your specific needs and the type of vegetation you need to clear. Eterra offers a range of attachments designed for different applications, from heavy-duty brush clearing to grass trimming in tight areas.
The Cyclone rotary bush cutter, EX-30/EX-40 flail mowers, and hydraulic string trimmer all offer unique advantages, and the table above provides a summary of their specifications. By considering the cutting capacity, cutting width, and recommended excavator size of each attachment, you can make an informed decision on which one to choose for your job.
No matter which attachment you choose, you can trust Eterra's quality and durability to get the job done.
