Keep reading below to learn more about our mini skid steer brush cutters, and what we have to offer.
Open or Closed Front Mini Skid Steer Brush Cutters
One of the first items you have to decide on is if you want an open or closed front mini skid steer brush cutter.
When making this decision, the main variable to consider is what you are most likely going to be cutting and what sort of finish you are after.
An open front brush cutter will allow material into the cutter easier. The trade off is that the material you are cutting will spend less time inside the brush cutter being chopped down to a smaller size. This arrangement works well for attacking thick woody bush, as the bush can enter the cutter easier. You will, however, end up with a rougher cut.
On the other hand, a closed front brush cutter for your mini skid steer will keep material inside the brush cutter for longer, giving you a much finer and cleaner finish. This may be an ideal set up for customers who are mostly planning on working over grown grass, thistle, pasture etc. In this case, ease of entry into the brush cutter isn’t much of an issue, but having a cleaner finish may be ideal.
What Can a Mini Skid Steer Brush Cutter Cut?
Most mini skid steers brush cutters are designed to cut grass and heavy bush. Although it’s likely that a quality mini brush cutter can be used to cut material up to 4” thick, be sure to check the manufacturers recommendations for the one your are purchasing.
What Kind Of Mini Skid Steer Do I Need?
Most modern mini skid steers will couple and work with most modern mini skid steer brush cutters. It’s important that you ensure that your mini skid steer has the required minimum auxiliary gallons per minute for the brush cutter you plan on using. Generally, mini brush cutters will need at least 12 gallons per minute.
Because mini skid steer attachment couplers have slight variations between brands, it’s also important that you order the proper mount for your brush cutter.
For example, mini universal and mini Bobcat mounts have different dimensions and are not interchangeable. If you are unsure what you need, contact one of our sales reps for assistance.
Because mini skid steer brush cutters are entirely hydraulically operated, there is no need to purchase an additional electrical harness.
Other Mini Skid Steer Brush Cutter Consideration
