John Deere recently rolled out a new series of Root Rake attachments designed to help clear and level land and remove debris. The new Root Rakes are made of alloy steel, and work with a number of different John Deere models. Another recent development is the Bobcat 70 inch forestry cut, which can shred through wood and reduce it to mulch. There are also new munchers and flail mowers available from Caterpillar. The flail mowers have swinging teeth and cavity knives, while the mulched has staggered, reversible, blade-style teeth.
- The Bobcat 70-inch forestry cutter attachment can rip through both soft and hard woods to produce a fine mulch.
- Doosan hydraulic clamps for crawler and wheel excavators can be used to pick and place material and remove unwanted debris when clearing land.
- Kubota’s Rock Grapple attachments for skid steers and compact track loaders can move volumes of materials while allowing small rocks and debris to sift through.
“Available in 72-inch, 78-inch and 84-inch widths, the rakes help shield the front of the host machine, protecting it against damage from large piles of brush or jagged scrap.”
