Depth Gauges

The Battle Ax rotor design uses built-in depth gauges to control cutting depth, like raker teeth on a chainsaw.

Two-Stage Cutting Chamber

Two shear bars allow the Battle Ax to produce a finer mulch with fewer passes. The primary shear bar is adjustable for controlling particle sizes.

Convenient Tooth Mounting

The cutting teeth are mounted to the rotor with a single bolt. They can be easily reversed, replaced or removed on the jobsite using a common hex socket.

High-Performance Teeth Options

Choose from 4-point beaver teeth, Quadco reversible planer teeth or Double Carbide Teeth.

Fixed-Displacement Gear Motor

The 20 Series Battle Ax features a 45cc high-pressure gear motor for excavators with hydraulic systems ranging from 15 to 35.9 gallons per minute and up to 4,100 PSI (20 to 70 hydraulic horsepower). This reliable motor turns the rotor from 1,700 to 2,300 RPM.

3-Band Belt Drive

A three-groove banded belt system efficiently transfers power to the rotor.

Machined Anti-Wrap Bearing Protection

Rotor ends are machine turned to mate with close tolerance, machined anti-wrap rings, which minimize debris in the bearing chamber.

Premium Strength Steel Housing

The Battle Ax is constructed of high-strength steel to withstand some of the toughest operating conditions.

Steel Deflector Chains

Running the entire length of the mulching attachment, steel deflector chains improve safety by reducing flying debris.

Optional Spade Hook/Hydraulic Thumb

The spade hook is a useful tool for positioning material to be mulched. A hydraulic thumb is also optional for added versatility.

Multiple Mounting Options

A variety of mounts are available for attaching the Battle Ax to any make of excavator. Pin-on and pin grabber styles are available.
