What's New


Loftness introduced its Bad Ax disc mulcher for skid steers, a high-powered forestry head for a wide range of applications, including land clearing and vegetation control. It includes a fully machined, 60-inch disc designed to cut trees up to 14-inches in diameter. Because the disc contains no welds, there are no areas subject to stress cracking. The disc is driven directly by a hydraulic motor to apply 100% of the power to the job at hand. A polyurethane coupler offers excellent vibration dampening, and the direct drive eliminates the need to maintain belts. Standard features include an integrated pressure gauge, an adjustable tree-pusher bar with welded claw hooks, and anti-wrap bearing protection. Customers may choose from two available hydraulic motor options, including a fixed-displacement gear motor and an adjustable-displacement piston motor. The Bad Ax requires 70-20 hydraulic hp to operate.  www.loftness.com
