The Battle Ax rotor includes built-in depth gauges, which function similarly to raker teeth on chain saws to prevent the attachment from engaging too much material at one time. This unique design is more ideal for managing the amount of material being fed into the attachment than competitive ring-style rotors, which many operators find to be overly limiting.
TWO-STAGE CUTTING CHAMBER
The Loftness exclusive two-stage cutting chamber is capable of processing material more thoroughly than competitive units by cutting material twice. Not only does this allow faster decomposition, but it also results in a nicer looking end product. The primary shear bar is adjustable, so the clearance can be narrowed or widened depending upon the desired material size and production rate. From here, the partially reduced material passes smoothly to the secondary cutting chamber behind the front bumper, where it’s processed further before being discharged toward the ground.
Two types of Quadco blades are available for superior mulching performance. They can be reversed on site for a fresh cutting edge, effectively doubling their service life.
The Quadco knives are mounted to the rotor with a single bolt. They can be easily reversed, replaced or removed on the jobsite using a common hex socket.
STAGGERED/SPIRAL TOOTH PATTERN
This exclusive tooth arrangement ensures single-tooth contact with the work surface at all times while maintaining optimal rotor balance.
FIXED-DISPLACEMENT GEAR MOTOR
The high-pressure gear motor is a reliable, cost-effective workhorse. It operates at 2,000 to 2,500 rotor RPM that provides an optimal balance between speed and torque. This system was designed for skid steers up to 9,500 pounds delivering 15-34.9 GPM at up to 4,100 PSI. (Rated up to 70 hydraulic horsepower.).
MACHINED ANTI-WRAP BEARING PROTECTOR
Rotor ends are machine turned to mate with close tolerance, machined anti-wrap rings, which minimize debris in the bearing chamber.
An integrated PSI gauge that monitors the hydraulic load is positioned for easy viewing from the skid steer cab. It helps keep the Battle Ax at the optimum hydraulic load for peak performance throughout an application.
PREMIUM STRENGTH STEEL HOUSING
All body components are laser cut from premium strength steel. Also, abrasion resistant steel is used in high-wear areas.
STEEL DEFLECTOR CHAINS
Running the entire length of the mulching attachment, steel deflector chains improve safety by reducing flying debris.
The Battle Ax is designed for maximum visibility from the skid steer cab, which increases safety, productivity and efficiency.
UNIVERSAL SKID STEER MOUNT
The universal mount allows the Battle Ax to be easily used with any skid steer brand or model.
HYDRAULIC HOSE ROUTING
Hoses are right sized and routed to reduce the chance of binding, yet are long enough for a full range of motion without damage. Hoses are included, couplers are not.
