brush cutters

Caterpillar Brushcutters are used for clearing overgrowth from highway medians, utility easements and for initial land clearing for housing, parks and recreational areas.

  • Caterpillar offers five models of brushcutters. The BR160, BR166, and BR172 are performance matches to operate efficiently on Cat Skid Steer and Multi Terrain Loaders standard flow hydraulic system. The BR272 is designed for the high flow auxiliary hydraulic circuit and horsepower capabilities of the Caterpillar high flow machine models. The BR378 is matched to the machine’s high flow (XPS) auxiliary hydraulic circuit to optimize work tool and machine performance. All models are matched for machine and hydraulic system performance as well as machine horsepower and weight.
  • High strength blades deliver high cutting action, durability and also mulch overgrowth. Fully balanced blade carriers prevent unnecessary vibration. Tapered blade carrier allows cutter to ride up over stumps and rocks.
  • Long life motors deliver years of high-speed blade performance. Machined and heat treated gears in sealed gearbox provide reliable, durable transfer of torque from motor to blade carrier.
  • Motor protection guard shields motor and gear box from debris. Removing a set of bolts allows this hinged guard to be moved away for easy access to motor and gearbox.
  • Galvanized coil chains (7.9mm[5/16in] proof) provide debris guarding in the front and rear areas to restrict flying debris and material.
  • Heavy-duty skids allow easy movement of the brushcutter through uneven terrain while maintaining stability of the work tool and machine.
  • Caterpillar Skid Steer Loaders and Multi Terrain Work Tools incorporate an interface that matches the machine’s integrated mechanical and hydraulic quick coupler systems. Quick attach mounting allows the operator to quickly change from one high performance Cat Work Tool to another, increasing machine versatility
