Automatic Wire Shear

Closeup of the Automatic Wire Shear on an HD 480B Brush CutterDiscarded cables hiding under grass, barb-wire fences camouflaged with bushes; if you have cut brush for very long you know that these enemies like to jump onto cutter heads, wrap tightly around the spindle and stall the wheel. Bad attacks can damage seals and take half and hour or more to cut and untangle. Our solution? Shear the wire before it has a chance to do harm.

The automatic wire shear is a fixed blade that cuts wire as it wraps around the spindle. This gives the operator a few seconds to turn off the wheel before the wire becomes heavily entangled and causes harm. The wire shear does not turn your brush cutter into a wire shredder, but significantly saves on downtime and equipment repair.
