Strong cutter bar

A HIGH-powered cutter bar from Bomford made its debut at the Highland Show. Designed to replace the infinitely more hazardous saw blade, it is available in two versions – one capable of handling growth up to 10cm (4in) diameter and a smaller model for 4cm (1.5in) growth.

Hydraulically powered, the 1.5m (5ft) cutter bar comprises a reciprocating blade running across another which is static. Both blades have a powerful build which give support to the manufacturers claims that all entering its jaws is ultimately doomed.

Suitable for attachment to the majority of the Bomford hedgecutter range, the cutter bars are clearly aimed at the contractor faced with maintaining overgrown hedges or railway embankments. Prices are £2450 and £5800.
