The Battle Ax is the latest mulching attachment from Loftness. Its unique, direct-drive rotor with built-in depth gauges is ideal for a variety of vegetation management applications, including right-of-way maintenance, land clearing, forestry mulching and more. Models are currently available for 7-15 ton excavators.
Maximum Efficiency for Vegetation Management Professionals: The new 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.
A One-Two Punch:
The Loftness exclusive two-stage cutting chamber provides some of the smallest particle sizes in the industry 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.
