Land Clearing Equipment: A Beginner’s Guide

By now, it’s no secret that there is a massive market for land clearing equipment. These versatile tools can be used in many different circumstances, and our quick guide will help you determine which tool is best for your needs.

It may be challenging to know where to begin if you’re undertaking a project with many layers of difficult growth. The brush cutting attachments you choose may depend on multiple factors. Do you use a skid steer or excavator? What kind of growth are you looking to destroy? Once you’ve determined the scale of your task, you can find land clearing equipment that will do the work for you.

Skid Steer Forestry Brush Cutter Gladiator

The Gladiator Forestry Brush Cutter is a skid steer attachment for uneven land, on-site preparation, and emergency cleanup. The Gladiator is an industrial-grade machine capable of cutting and mulching any bush or tree it meets. 

The Gladiator’s push bar is intended to keep trees and brush in front of the cutter so that they may be easily consumed. The 1″ thick blade carrier of this forestry brush cutter is made of carbide-tipped mulching teeth. 

The mulching teeth aid in the destruction of forest foliage and the grinding down of stumps, and they are strong enough to handle heavy debris and overgrowth with ease.

Skid Steer Brush Cutter Terminator XP

In comparison to other skid steer land clearing equipment, this brush cutter can deal with overgrown brush, vexing native grasses, and other vegetation that is impeding your progress. Not to mention that the quality of this product ensures it’s suitable for both residential and commercial applications.

The unique brush cutter attachment is constructed of the same AR400 steel blades as the Terminator XP, but it includes a few unique characteristics that set it apart.

For additional measures of efficiency, we’ve increased the deck thickness (from 3/16″) and deck sides (from 5/16″), which protects your equipment from abrasive brushes and overgrowth. We’ve added carbide-tipped mulching teeth between the blades to improve work efficiency, making it easier to consume unruly shrubbery, bush growth, and tree stumps.

Land Clearing Equipment for Tree Removal

If you’re planning on cutting down many trees on your property, consider having them appraised before starting the removal process. You never know; you may have valuable timber that you can sell. Many times, trees can be relocated as well. Before you start any job, you should decide what to do with the debris.

Tree Slayer

Our excavator tree shear is built to cut and trim trees, brush, grind out tiny stumps and roots with the serrated edge, then collect the debris in a neat pile with the back edge. This tree slayer is intended to endure the most arduous tangle of trees.

When looking for land clearing equipment that eradicates trees, you want to find brush-cutting attachments that lessen the time spent switching between attachments. Tree clearing tools need to reach narrow areas that other devices can’t.

Additionally, the brush cutting attachment must have strong mulching teeth capable of destroying dense material such as a large span of trunks and branches varying in size.
