Three Cutting Tooth Options

The Battle Ax Skid Steer is available with three different tooth options. The teeth mount to the rotor with a single bolt, allowing them to be easily reversed, replaced or removed on the jobsite using a common hex socket.

Standard Carbide Tooth


Carbide cutting teeth are highly durable for withstanding tough operating conditions, such as rocky terrain. The Battle Ax rotor is designed to work well with these teeth, whereas ring-style rotors tend to have difficulty picking up material when using carbides.

Quadco Planer Blade


Reversible with ultra-sharp, heat-treated steel knife edges, Quadco blades effortlessly slice through trees and vegetation, as opposed to shredding and tearing. They can be reversed on site for a fresh cutting edge, effectively doubling their service life between sharpening. The depth gauges on the Battle Ax maximize performance of these blades by preventing them from biting into too much material at one time.

Hard-Surface Quadco Blades


A hardened surface on the outside of these Quadco blades wears at a slower pace than the inside, creating a self-sharpening effect for long-lasting performance. These cutting teeth are more ideal for use in loam or sandy soil, and are not recommended for rocky conditions.


Two Powerful Motor Options

The Battle Ax Skid Steer is available with two hydraulic motor options to accommodate a wide range of customer needs and budgets. Choose between a reliable high-pressure, fixed-displacement gear motor, or upgrade to our advanced V-Drive variable-displacement piston motor.

V-Drive Variable-Displacement Piston Motor

The V-Drive uses a variable-displacement piston motor, which automatically shifts the rotor RPM from the highest speed to a lower range for increased torque, as needed. The result is less stalling and a shorter recovery time, helping operators to concentrate on the job instead of power settings and continuous head repositioning. This motor provides a more effective use of power as the head RPM increases under lighter loads, allowing operators to quickly slice through smaller or more flexible growth, as well as when back-dragging material on the ground. As larger trees, trunks and stumps are engaged, the motor increases the drive displacement to increase torque. It is designed for skid steers delivering 32-45 GPM at up to 6,000 PSI. (Rated up to 120 hydraulic horsepower.)

Fixed-Displacement Gear Motor

The high-pressure gear motor is a reliable, cost-effective workhorse. It operates at a constant RPM that provides an optimal balance between speed and torque. This system was designed for skid steers delivering 29-40 GPM at up to 4,300 PSI. (Rated up to 85 hydraulic horsepower.)
