John Deere added the MH60D mulching head to its Worksite Pro lineup.

Designed to remove 8-inch trees and 12-inch stumps with ease, the MH60D model shreds underbrush and woody materials into mulch in minutes. It’s optimized to work with John Deere skid-steer loaders and compact track loaders, as well as most competitive models.

“With 30 double-carbide tipped teeth, our new mulching head attachment is a job site beast that easily takes big bites out of trees and stumps,” said Jessica Hill, global program manager, attachments. “It’s an invaluable tool for customers who need a powerful mulching solution, no matter the tree type or location.”

The MH60D also works well below soil level for chewing out difficult stumps. A two-speed hydraulic system efficiently uses available horsepower. When the preset pressure level is attained, the motor automatically shifts to a higher displacement, increasing torque for reduced stalling and faster rotor-speed recovery time. A prominently positioned pressure gauge allows operators to easily monitor hydraulic operating pressure, the company said.

A 60-inch high-capacity, smooth rotor design reduces material drag and horsepower requirements. The rotor is balanced for smooth operation, and 2.5-inch sealed rotor bearings deliver long-term durability, according to the company. A redesigned mulching chamber enables more efficient material flow and reduces wear points for optimized shredding performance. Internal countercombs help shatter incoming material, creating finer mulch. Optional knife tools allow for smoother cutting and finer chip size.

According to the manufacturer, the attachment’s three-position heavy-duty push bar helps protect the carrier while toppling tree or brush, the door cylinder inside the frame body is better protected and the enhanced frame construction and bolt-on skid shoes reduce debris buildup.

The new mulching head attachment is backed by John Deere parts, service and warranty coverage.
