Basically, the WESSEX SCRUBMASTER ROTARY SLASHER cannot be stopped! Ideal for controlling areas of dense vegetation or heavy scrubland, the Wessex Scrubmaster has an enviable reputation for serious scrub-clearing ability. At work in woodlands and areas of forest across the UK and Europe, the Scrubmaster will power its way unstoppably through dense brush and scrub. Constructed from heavy-gauge steel plate with an exceptionally high-performance drive system, the Scrubmaster is built to last; a testament to this is the fact that our spare parts department receives calls for spare parts from users of Scrubmasters in excess of 30 years old!The Scrubmaster can be ordered with either blade or chain cutters: Blade assembly - comprises of 4 heavy-duty reversible blades mounted on a large hardened steel square plate, delivering over 2000 1 ton impact cuts per minute. The blade cutters give a cleaner cutting action than chains when cutting wood material, and can be used for controlling grass & weed growth. Chain cutters - are recommended for use in areas where there is a likelihood of tree stumps and boulders which could cause damage to blades. Three high tensile chains are mounted on a circular boss and will lacerate cut material more than blades, accelerating the breakdown of woody and fibrous scrub growth. Adjustable side skids - with replaceable wear shoes are re-positioned to alter the cutting height. The skids are positioned so that the working width is only marginally less than the overall width allowing the machine to cut close to trees in plantations and stumps. Fully floating headstock - allows the machine to be dragged across the rough ground with minimal stress to the frame of the machine, whilst a heavy galvanised chain takes the weight of the machine when lifted out of work. Heavy gauge steel tailgates - retain debris beneath the machine for thorough mulching. Drive - transmitted via a friction plate clutch to the heavy gearbox with hardened, bevel gears running in an oil bath for smooth operation. The cutter assembly is welded on a tapered hub which locks onto the gearbox output shaft.
