Excavator disc mulchers are ideal for reclaiming and deforestation, particularly in steep areas like riverbanks, power lines, pipelines, and railroad right of ways. Excavator mounted mulchers can be used on steeper slopes, greater than 30%, or where it is important to minimize soil compaction. The excavator does not need to travel everywhere it is mulching, which is an advantage over the other machine forms.
An excavator disc mulcher can process both large and small diameter material. They are capable of mulching upright trees and fallen trees, brush, shrubs, and stumps. This style of mulcher is safer where larger standing trees are being mulched.
Applications that an excavator disc mulcher can be useful for:
Land clearing for private and public property
Site preparation and lot clearing
Pipeline and transmission line maintenance
Forest management and wildfire prevention
Trail and road overgrowth clearing
Storm and damage and disaster cleanup.
Rotary Disc Mulching (RDM) Technology is much more than a spinning disk with cutting teeth. The secret to this proprietary technology is the innovative design which transfers maximum power to the attachment using only the existing hydraulics of the carrier. This results in a mulching attachment that can handle thick undergrowth and trees up to 20 inches in diameter without binding or clogging.
This is the most versatile and advanced forestry disc mulching head in the industry. Our RDM Series forestry disc mulchers are used worldwide for vegetation management, land clearing in the timber industry and pre-commercial thinning. They are also used for fuels reduction to prevent wild fires by thinning trees and removing underbrush. The RDM Series forestry disc mulchers are ideal for efficient cutting and mulching.
