The Battle Ax is a truly unique mulching head from Loftness. It has an innovative depth gauge design that's proven to perform better than any other bite-control rotor on the market. Plus, the two-stage cutting chamber is a more effective solution for sizing material than drum mulchers that use hydraulic doors to trap material. The combination of these features and more allow the Battle Ax to process material more thoroughly and complete jobs quicker than competitive units. Not to mention, our products are backed by a large dealer network and superior customer support from our 100-percent employee-owned company based in the U.S.A. We’re proud of our Battle Ax mulching head…and so are the people who run them.
Maximum Efficiency for Vegetation Management Professionals: The 17-inch-diameter Battle Ax rotor features built-in depth gauges, which function similarly to raker teeth on chain saws to prevent the attachment from engaging too much material at one time. This unique design is more ideal for managing the amount of material being fed into the attachment than competitive ring-style rotors, which many operators find to be overly limiting. It has also proven to perform better with both Quadco blades and carbide cutting teeth.
A One-Two Punch:
The Loftness exclusive two-stage cutting chamber is capable of processing material more thoroughly than competitive units by cutting material twice. The primary shear bar is adjustable, so the clearance can be narrowed or widened depending upon the desired material size and production rate. From here, the partially reduced material passes smoothly to the secondary cutting chamber behind the front bumper, where it’s processed further before being discharged toward the ground.
