Bobcat adds two new Brushcat rotary cutter attachments for mini track loaders and articulated loaders and a full line of redesigned loader drum mulchers for compact track and skid-steer loaders.

Brushcat rotary cutters

Bobcat’s new 44-inch and 54-inch Brushcat attachments are the smallest two models in the lineup, according to the company. Bobcat said the new size offerings expand the company’s current attachment choices for the mini track loader and small articulated loader lines.

The models feature a high-efficiency, direct-drive motor that maximizes hydraulic horsepower for optimal cutting and mulching of tall, thick vegetation in one pass. The high cutting speeds and heavy-duty blades maximize inertia to cut and mulch vegetation up to two inches in diameter.

These new attachments are compatible with Bobcat’s small articulated loaders (L23, L28), mini track loaders (MT85, MT100), and Bobcat’s 450 skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders.

Additional features include:

  • An oscillating deck follows the ground contour for an even and consistent cut on flat ground, slopes and uneven terrain.
  • An open, front-deck design allows for clear operator visibility to the cutting path.
  • A rear roller blocks debris from flying out the back, improves maneuverability, and prevents the attachment from gouging into the ground.
  • Skid shoes prevent the deck from digging into inclines and are replaceable.

Redesigned drum mulchers

The newly redesigned line of drum mulcher attachments are available in 50-inch, 61-inch and 72-inch cutting widths and are approved for the 700- and 800-Series compact track and skid-steer loaders.

The loader drum mulcher attachments are designed for utility lines and right-of-way maintenance, site preparation, cleaning/maintaining property, disaster/environmental recovery response and orchard/vineyard maintenance.

A standard 2-speed hydraulic motor provides increased drum torque and quicker drum speed recovery, according to the company. The 50-inch and 61-inch mulchers come equipped with a pressure gauge to better monitor drum speeds.

Additional features include:

  • Heavy-duty carbide teeth.
  • Depth control rings, a feature of the optional drum for the 50-inch and 61-inch attachment, limit engagement of the cutting teeth.
  • The compact size of the drum mulcher accommodates tree removal jobs of up to 8 inches.
  • Reinforced push bar and optional low-profile front gate provide optimal visibility to the drum and cutting teeth.
  • Hydraulic drum break brings drum rotation to a stop within 20 seconds after deactivating the auxiliary hydraulics.
  • Redesigned hydraulic block and drive components.
  • Replaceable bolt-on skid shoes.
  • Durable connection points.
  • Hose clamps and hose sling protects hydraulic hoses from kinking, contact wear and entanglement.
  • Rear debris chains obstruct debris thrown toward the rear of the attachment.
