Ground Shark Rotary Cutter Clears Brush, Pastures With 3/4in Blades

Hydraulic motor powers four-blade disc that cuts through 7-inch saplings and other brush.

Published on: Jun 13, 2012

The Bradco Ground Shark Extreme-Duty Brush Cutter by Paladin is designed for skid-loaders with high-flow hydraulics to clear tough ground vegetation, brush and saplings up to 7-inches thick.

Four 3/4-inch high grade steel blades with alternating bevels provide deep-penetrating, self-cleaning, axe-like cuts and spin on a heavy duty retention disc for inertia and smooth operation.  The cutting is done within an exclusive patent-pending, fully enclosed auto-retractable front shield. Also, a heavy-duty construction push bar prevents trees from falling back toward the machine for improved operator safety.

A imposing look with the ability to take on 7-inch saplings is the hallmark of the Bradco Ground Shark Extreme-Duty Brush Cutter.

The "Clean Deck" is made of 1/4-inch steel and finished with a high-quality powder coat and is designed to reduce snagging and to funnel material to the corners for optimal debris control and blade performance. The deck also features an operator-visible pressure gauge to help maintain peak performance and prevent stalling in tough conditions.

The Ground Shark comes in a 72-inch working width and is designed with a direct-drive hydraulic motor power train. The vertical motor features a heavy-duty spline shaft that boosts performance, with all plumbing and valve assemblies shielded to prevent damage and injuries.

The Ground Shark also can be used as a stump grinder/mulcher with a set of bolt-on carbide teeth.
