Loftness updates Bad Ax mulcher attachment

default

Loftness’ updated Bad Ax disc mulcher attachment for skid steers is designed to be lighter and stronger, featuring improved machine balance and upgraded performance. It weighs 400 pounds less than the original model and is positioned approximately 5 inches closer to the power unit for improved balance, stability and flotation of the skid steer. Despite the lighter weight, engineering improvements are designed to increase durability through updates to the steel housing and a larger-diameter main shaft. A new radial-piston, high-pressure motor is designed for full torque capability at startup for fast recovery time. A redesigned intake is designed for better material flow through the unit. Similar to the original, the new Bad Ax employs a fully machined, 60-inch-diameter disc designed to cut trees up to 14 inches in diameter. The housing features a re-cutter bar along with counter teeth designed to hold material in place while being mulched. Heat-treated, steel Quadco blades are used to slice through vegetation, as opposed to shredding and tearing material. Other standard features include an integrated pressure gauge, an adjustable tree-pusher bar with welded claw hooks and anti-wrap bearing protection. The Bad Ax requires 70-120 hydraulic horsepower to operate. (www.loftness.com)
