"SLASHBUSTER"® XL 480 Brush Cutter

The "SLASHBUSTER"® XL 480 brush cutter attachment is a leader in low-cost maintenance mowers. The standard configuration includes a blade bar assembly with a 48 inch swath, ideal for mulching material up through six inches in diameter when mounted on a small 10 to 14 ton excavator.

Installed on a larger excavator, the XL 480 with "S-7" mulching disk becomes more efficient in larger material such as an occasional eight inch or larger stem. The tilt mount and a material handler are productive options on this model.
