BRX418 Industrial Brushcutter

Cat® Industrial Brushcutters are designed for land management, utilities, site prep and maintenance work for brush, small trees, and dense vegetation. These machine and work tool combinations are designed to bring unparalleled speed and productivity for clearing overgrowth from highway medians, utility easements and for initial land clearing for housing, parks, and recreational areas. The Industrial Brushcutter has been developed to withstand rugged clearing applications and provide cutting capability up to 200 mm (8 in) diameter material.

Fully Balanced Blade Carrier

Fully balanced blade carrier holds four blades to prevent unnecessary vibration. Blade carrier weighing 409 kg (900 lb) provides unmatched blade inertia. High inertia energy allows blades to wing through dense brush.

Hardened Reversible Blades

Hardened reversible blades provide aggressive cutting of material and deliver high performance and durability. Blades are attached to blade carrier with three bolts that can easily be torqued from an access panel on the top of frame.

Long Life Motor w/ Anti-Cavitation Valve

Anti-cavitation valve protects vital motor components improving tool life and ensuring adequate machine and tool performance.

Integrated Accumulator

Integrated accumulator in hydraulic system works in conjunction with the anti-cavitation valve to reduce pressure spikes to the drive motor. On shut-down, the accumulator discharges oil to the motor to slowly spin down the drivetrain. This reduces noise emitted by the motor and the cavitation.

Heavy-Duty Skids

Heavy-duty skids allow easy movement of the brushcutter through uneven terrain while maintaining stability of the work tool and machine.

Reinforced Push Bar

Control and guide foliage into blades. Push bar extends beyond blades protecting bystanders.

Tuned Hydraulic Performance

The Industrial Brushcutter is designed to match with Standard Flow, High Flow XPS, and High Flow XHP hydraulics. This optimizes recovery time and reduces heat load on the carrier to work in high ambient temperature environments.
