Trending Attachment: Rotary Cutters for Skid Steers

THE CUTTIN’ O’ THE GREEN!

“THE RIGHT TOOL FOR THE JOB”
It’s the oldest (and best) advice in the book: get the right tool for the job, and EVERYTHING goes smoother. And when you have weeds and brush that are already creeping above knee-level, even the best platform mowers will sputter. This is a job for a brush cutter / rotary mower — and the easiest way to plow through the tall stuff is attaching one of these machines to your skid steer.  Great power, maneuverability, and superior safety.

“LIKE GOING DOWNTOWN”
One of the great things about being a landscape professional is the immense satisfaction of seeing the “before and after” for yourself. First, you survey the unkempt wilds, then you leave perfectly coiffed greenspaces in your wake.  (A little bit like running the barber shop on an Army base.) But the result is not even half the fun of running through the brush and watching all those lousy weeds trembling in your path.  If you’ve done it yourself, you know: it’s like the Midwestern version of snowboarding.  

If you haven’t run a brush cutter with a skid steer yet, check out this quick video we shot while taking no prisoners on our back 40.  Serious fun, and yes, people will actually pay you for it…

Martin Implement Maintenance Notebook: Facts and Friction

Got grease?  Use it liberally!

MACHINES NEED GREASE: A CAUTIONARY TALE
One of the things that sets professional equipment apart from everyday machines like your car is the intensity of the work it does. Big machines running all day, lifting heavy objects, maxing out on their breakout force…well, work like that gets HOT. Friction is a constant, and it’s a constant threat to your machine’s biggest moving parts. Modern equipment is incredibly strong and well-constructed, but it still requires maintenance.  And in the case of lubrication for high-stress parts like lift arms, that means inspecting grease points daily (or after every use) and adding grease as needed; referring of course to the guidelines in your operators manual.
