The 550 Forestry mulcher is specially designed to shred pruned branches, small trees and debris from tree-felling and scrub clearance. This mulcher is designed for use with tractors from 90 to 260 HP. It is equipped with a rotor containing four rows of swinging hammers that are concealed in the inside of the rotor to protect them from heavy impact from tree trunks or stones, lengthening the useful life of the hammers. The special positioning of the hammers on the rotor produces very fine shredding and the shredded material is evenly spread over the terrain. Heavy duty skids for height adjustment. Hydraulic or manually controlled hinged hood. Very solid and sturdily built.
