The Bradco ground shark extreme-duty brush cutter by Paladin Attachments attaches to high-flow skid steers for increased production, maximum reliability and ease of maintenance when clearing tough ground vegetation, brush and sapling trees up to 7 in. (17.7 cm) in diameter. Four blades with alternating bevels provide deep penetrating, self-clearing, axe-like cuts and spin on a heavy-duty retention disc for increased stability and smooth operation. To increase blade wear life, the ¾-in. (1.9 cm) thick high-grade steel blades are designed to rotate inwards when there is contact with an obstacle. The fully enclosed auto-retractable front shield allows for maximum blade utilization and optimized debris deflection, and the heavy-construction push bar minimizes the possibility of trees falling back toward the machine for increased safety. Constructed of ¼-in. (.6 cm) steel and finished with a high-quality powder coat, the "Clean-Deck" design reduces snagging and funnels material to the corners for optimal debris control and greater blade performance, according to the manufacturer.
The highly visible pressure gauge allows the operator to maintain peak performance and prevent stalling.
The Bradco ground shark extreme-duty brush cutter comes in a 72-in. (183 cm) cutting width and is designed with a direct drive system for smoother and quieter operation. The vertical motor features a heavy-duty spline shaft that increases performance. Optional bolt-on stump grinding carbide teeth increase mulching performance and allow for leveling of stumps and the replaceable wear shoes extend deck life. Motor and valve assemblies that are fully shielded and dual steps improve safety when entering or exiting the cab.
The ground shark extreme-duty is part of the ground shark family, geared toward vegetation management professionals performing roadside maintenance, right of way clearing, site preparation, fire control, fence line maintenance and trail maintenance. The product family also includes the 60, 72 and 78 in. (152, 183 and 198 cm) ground shark standard-duty brush cutters that clear light to medium density brush and hardwoods up to 4 in. (10 cm) in diameter.
