BAD AX DISC MULCHER

Skid Steer / Compact Track Loader

The Bad Ax isn’t just another disc mulcher. It’s been engineered for superior weight balance, durability and performance. And, of course, it’s backed by Loftness’ superior customer support and large dealer network. All of these things add up to make the Bad Ax the disc mulcher of choice for land clearing, vegetation management, forest fire prevention and more.

FEATURES:
Radial Piston High-Pressure Motor

The radial piston high-pressure motor provides instant torque at start-up for fast recovery times. It requires 36-50 GPM up to 5000 PSI and 70-120 hydraulic horsepower.

Fully Machined Disc

The Bad Ax can cut down trees up to 14 inches in diameter using a 60-inch diameter disc. The fully machined disc is 1.25 inches thick using premium-strength steel, and it contains no welds, so there are no points subject to stress cracking.

The large Bad Ax disc builds up its own inertia during use, pushing its productive force beyond the maximum hydraulic horsepower. This helps it more quickly gather and process vegetation. It has a 200 MPH tip speed at up to 1100 RPM.

Recutter Bar

The Bad Ax uses a recutter bar along with stationary counter teeth to hold material in place while it is being mulched. This unique design allows the Bad Ax to cut material into finer particles for faster decomposition and produce a nicer looking end product. It also helps avoid log jams in the chamber, which can be extremely difficult to remove in competitive units.

Bolt-on Replaceable Teeth and Tooth Mounts

Quadco teeth are attached to the mulching disc using bolt-on mounts. These make the teeth easy to rotate, replace and remove while on the jobsite. Additionally, the bolt-on mounts can be replaced in the field without the need for cutting, welding or rebalancing the rotor.

Quadco Blades

Reversible with ultra-sharp, heat-treated steel knife edges, the Quadco blades effortlessly slice through trees and vegetation, as opposed to shredding and tearing. They can be rotated on site for a fresh cutting edge, or sharpened to maintain efficiency.

Bearing Anti-Wrap Protection

A precise labyrinth ring design helps keep debris from entering the bearing chamber.

Controlled Discharge Deflector

The discharge deflector directs material down and away from the machine, helping to protect the equipment and operator. Unlike competitive hinged designs, the Bad Ax uses a rigid deflector for better control of the discharge.

Specialized Housing Design

The sides of the Bad Ax housing are parallel. This design provides optimal control when compared with funnel, or V-shaped, disc mulchers, which can be easily misdirected when hooking onto stumps or other solid objects. Additionally, the front of the housing is angled, allowing the teeth to mulch at ground level.

Adjustable Tree-Pusher Bar

Featuring welded claw hooks, the bar is used to push falling trees away from the power unit and to position material for proper feeding into the mulching disc. Unlike many other disc mulchers, the pusher bar on the Bad Ax can be adjusted to meet the needs of the jobsite.

Pressure Gauge

A rubber-mounted pressure gauge allows the operator to easily monitor the workload from the skid steer cab.

Anti-Cavitation Shutdown Circuit

An integrated anti-cavitation shutdown circuit protects motor during shutdown.

Premium Strength Steel Body and Disc

The entire Bad Ax body and disc are constructed of premium high-strength steel for maximum durability.

Universal Skid-Steer Mount

The disc mulcher easily pairs with a wide variety of brands and models of skid steers and compact track loaders. Hoses are included, but couplers are not.

2-Year Warranty

The Bad Ax comes standard with an industry-leading 2-year warranty.
