Stay balanced during single-sided operations

Activate the operator-controlled sliding counterweight to maintain balance during single-sided operations, even on slopes.

Dust and debris stay outside

Stay protected from dust, debris, precipitation, and temperature extremes in the climate-controlled, fully enclosed, pressurized cab.

Terrain changes? Obstructions? No problem.

Tilt, rotate, or pivot the cutter heads to adjust to terrain changes or maneuver around obstacles. Move the boom up and down to adapt to terrain levels or use the boom swing to move the cutting heads to the desired cutting area.

Extend cutting reach to 60 feet

Extend the cutter heads up to 30 feet from the track center - on both sides of the machine - for a total reach of 60 feet (each cutting head has an eight-foot cutting width). Also, extend the cutter heads up to 21 feet vertically (maximum) to trim branches and high brush.

Adjust debris spray for different conditions

Set the cutter head rotation on the optional blade-type cutter head to direct where debris lands - close to the track in populated areas and away from the track in open areas. Cut and mulch at same time Use the saw-blade cutter head to cut easily through dense brush and trees with up to four-inch diameter trunks. Mulching teeth on the cutter head shred the vegetation to reduce debris spray.
