Blaney launches multi-use excavator cutting head

Blaney Agri, known for its range of land management machinery, has launched the HDX excavator cutting head, which helps to keep hedges and wild scrubland at bay.

The County Antrim-based manufacturer’s new design has an improved hydraulic layout with integrated stationary blades working against the high-speed rotor for a finer chop.

At 1.3m wide, the head requires an excavator of 10t or bigger to manage the heavy-duty rotor and 700kg weight.

Blaney says the head is designed to cut in a swipe motion and the inbuilt skids and guard design should protect the workings from any harm.

It features a high-torque piston motor placed above the rotor and protected by a reinforced skin, while the excavator attaches on the top of the head, rather than at the rear.

Ideal tasks include hedge cutting and tackling rushes, with chains front and rear for debris deflection and an adjustable front cover to control the flow of material. Prices depend on spec but start at £7,000.
