10000 LB MIN. EXCAVATOR WEIGHT TO RUN THIS CUTTER.
Blue Diamond® Mini Excavator Severe Duty Brush Cutter is a serious attachment for clearing land! The Italian-made piston motor will tear through large brush with ease, boasting 40% more torque than geroler/gerotor type motors. The cut-away design allows better access to larger material and keeps grass standing while cutting, leaving a cleaner finish. The three AR400 blades make quick work of brush or grass. Proprietary valving allows this unit to be used without installing a case drain line, a first for a piston motor! This saves you time and money while giving the benefit of the piston motor’s increased torque. Available only in 42″ cut currently, it weighs 729 lbs. without a mount. Flow range is 16 to 26 GPM. 10,000 lbs. min machine weight recommended, for up to 19,000 lb. machines.
FEATURES INCLUDE :
High torque piston motor
6” cutting capacity
No case drain needed
Bearing seal protection kit under deck
Grease filled drive dramatically improves bearing life and prevents downtime from seal damage
3/4″ Thick blade carrier

WARNING: A Forestry package must be installed on the host machine before removing side guards. Only remove one guard at a time, and rotate the cutter so the debris is directed away from the host machine, to avoid machine damage. Operate with care!

Is the auxiliary flow of your machine within range for the brush cutter?
Minimum auxiliary flow recommendation – 13gpm. For machines with less flow than this, feel free to ask us about your machine. In some cases, we have found that smaller machines will still run the head, depending on how the manufacturer arranges the hydraulic pumps.
Maximum auxiliary flow recommendation – 23gpm. For machines with more flow than this, feel free to ask us about your machine. With most larger machines, it is possible to restrict the flow and pressure to within safe operating range. In some cases, this can even be done automatically from within the cab.
Is the total flow of all hydraulic pumps close to double the auxiliary pump?
This is important so that the volume of hydraulic oil going to the brush cutter is not drastically reduced when operating another function such as boom or drive.
All brands respond differently when operating attachments, based on how their pumps are set up and whether or not a priority valve is installed.
What are your expectations?
Generally, mini excavators will not produce the hydraulic flow of a skid steer until you get into the 80 class size machines. Therefore, you are not going to get the same cutting torque as you would see with a compact track or skid steer machine.
The attachment and the standard movement of your machine are both powered by the same hydraulic oil, so performance may be restricted. When working with a bucket, the undercarriage and boom have access to all of the hydraulic flow. However, when the brush cutter is using half of that to turn the blades, you will most likely experience a slower drive speed, and a harder time booming up or down. Booming down and swinging are usually the least affected functions.
Can I mount this to my machine?
Yes, Blue Diamond offers most mounts for factory pin or quick coupler style mounts on all major brands.
We can also make most aftermarket quick coupler mounts.
Just give us a call and ask! We will do what we can to find the mount you need.
You can also choose to purchase this machine without a mount, and it will be sent with a flat plate to weld on the correct ears for your coupler.
What if one of the three models doesn’t fit my machine?
Give our Customer Service team a call and ask them what experience they may have had with your machine in the past. We may have done or be able to configure an attachment compatible with your machine.
Note: The Blue Diamond mini excavator brush cutter does not require a case drain line be installed on the excavator saving both time and money on set up.
