Rotary Cutters

Share This Product:


  • Designed for extreme-duty applications, the Extreme Duty Rotary Cutter excels at clearing medium to heavy brush and hardwoods up to 18 cm (7 in.) in diameter.
  • Direct drivetrain contains no gearbox, for improved performance, durability, and reliability.
  • Four alternating bevel blades are made of 19.1 mm (0.75 in.)-thick high-grade steel in a reversible design, to provide a deep, self-clearing cut and long wear life.
  • Standard pressure gauge is highly visible, allowing easy monitoring of blade load to prevent both overheating and overloading.
  •  Retractable forward shield moves up and away from the tree to expose entire cutting edge while protecting the operator from flying debris.
