Slashbuster - Model XL 480SB - Brush Cutter
From Brush Cutters
The world's only brush cutter with a hydraulically operated rotating debris shroud. Developed in response to safety concerns over ejected debris, the XL 480SB brush cutter features a 180-degree rotating shroud; giving you the ultimate in control. This development makes it possible to work near houses, roadways, utility poles, etc, with a much lower risk compared to any other brushcutter.
These two extreme service brush cutters are identical in design and differ only in size and weight. On both models, a 'S-7' mulching disk coupled with its 'MAGNUM' drive system is more productive in large material than a conventional flail mower blade.
The HD 422, with its 42 inch mulching disk, is an excellent match for smaller excavators or long reach excavators that need a lighter attachment at the end of the stick. In long reach applications such as drainage management the performance of the HD 422 brush cutter sets a new productivity standard.
The HD 482, with its 48 inch mulching disk, is an excellent performer when matched to a 15 to 20 ton excavator.
Both attachments have a virtually unlimited shredding capacity with production rates limited only by available horsepower.
Low operating costs of the 'S-7' mulching teeth isn't their only advantage. Designed to be regularly sharpened in place with an angle grinder you don't have to wait for a decline in performance large enough to justify replacement.
Long bearing life is assured with a standard rotating hub debris guard and self-purging grease system working together to keep out water and contaminants. Adjust bearings to zero end play and grease daily for best results.
Tangles with wire are less likely to slow you down with our automatic wire shear, a standard feature on both models.
Reduce the size of mulched material more than typical rotary mowers. Close-up of fixed mulching teeth inside the shroud, a standard feature on HD models.
