General Equipment Company's 190C CUT-R-TACH rotary asphalt cutting attachment is specifically designed as a heavy-duty, high production solution to a wide range of asphalt cutting projects.

The 190C clamps directly to the buckets of backhoes, loaders, graders, dozers and other construction machinery without special tools, modifications or adapters. Its twin-screw pivoting clamp mechanism guarantees a tight fit to the host vehicle, allowing it to work effectively in both forward and reverse cutting directions, according to the manufacturer.

A 19-in. (48 cm)-diameter cutting blade is machined from special service-duty alloy steel and yields a maximum asphalt cutting depth of 5.5 in. (14 cm). Twin Timken-type, tapered roller bearings allow for a downward force capacity of 50,000 lbs. and the blade life expectancy is in excess of 25,000 lineal ft. (7,620 m). Blades are fully field-replaceable without disturbing bearings or seals.

The CUT-R-TACH features unitized, welded steel-plate construction that is reinforced at critical stress areas. It is capable of cutting up to 6,000 lineal ft. (1,829 m) per hour in high density asphalt and is an alternative to conventional sawing and jackhammering.

In business for more than 50 years, General Equipment Company is a family-owned manufacturer of earth augers, ventilation blowers, asphalt cutters and surface preparation equipment.
