Mini-excavator attachments are designed to meet a broad range of brush cutting needs. The mini excavator brush cutter is highly effective at shredding brush and trees up to a diameter of 8″. The mini excavator mulcher has been most commonly used for development and maintenance of walking, bicycling and RV trails, pipe line right-of-ways, electrical transmission lines as well as pre-commercial woodlot thinning operations, roadside clearing, stump grinding, wetland dyke management, and the list just goes on.
A mini excavator brush mower provides several advantages of over larger excavators with similar attachments. Along with low capital cost, a mini excavator mower is less expensive to mobilize, operate and maintain than larger forestry mulchers. Given its reduced environmental impact due to light weight and agility, the mini excavator mulching head is ideal for applications such grove maintenance and residential clearing operations. The small foot print of a mini excavator with a Torrent mulching head allows for use in areas where maneuvering space is limited such as in pre-commercial thinning operations.
A mini excavator stump grinder is used to grind standing trees and bush, slash, and stumps. Some common uses of a mini excavator mulcher include clearing land in uninhabited areas, maintaining recreational trails, and doing pre-commercial thinning of land. It is designed for use in intensive brush cutting applications.
A mini-excavator brush cutter is great for trail maintenance because of its small footprint and turn radius. With its small brush cutter head, a minin excavator brush mulcher is also ideal for fence line mowing. When you are working on landscaping maintenance, you can easily switch the mini excavator brush cutter with other attachments to complete the job. The mini excavator attachments are effective in clearing brush and eradicating invasive plants when you are landscaping. And cleaning ditches is made easy with the mini excavator brush cutter, too. All you have to do is walk the carrier down the middle of the ditch while it clears overgrown vegetation along the sides.
You can even perform fire line construction with the brush cutter. When you shred vegetation, the brush cutter creates mulch that has low flame length. Typically, dozers are used for fire line construction. Using a mini-excavator brush cutter, however, reduces cost and environmental impact considerably.
Another issue is overgrown vegetation on forest roads. Narrow, winding roads that are overgrown with brush can create hazardous blind curves. Mini excavator brush mowers can be used to clear vegetation on forest roadsides.
The mini excavator mulching head also helps with reforestation: reforestation equipment helps by reducing residual logging slash, which prepares the area for new growth. Traditionally dozer piling is used for this purpose, but the problem is that it obliterates the soil. On the other hand, mini-excavator brush cutters conserve organically rich soil to preserve good seedlings. Furthermore, the mini excavator mulchers increase water retention, make immediate planting possible, and don’t compact the soil, which reduces stand productivity significantly.
