All About Our Quick Attach Disc Mulcher

The Annihilator Forestry Disc Mulcher is a highly productive skid-steer forestry mulcher designed to take on the harshest environments. You’ve never handled a mulcher skid steer attachment quite like the Annihilator. The Annihilator is a direct drive unit powered by a Bent Axis Piston motor

The Annihilator comes with a hydraulic pressure gauge that allows you to get the most out of your disc mulcher. When the pressure gets high, you back off, and when the pressure is low, you can go faster into the material. This feature is key to maximizing your disc mulcher’s production so that it can work twice as hard as a traditional mulching system. If you’re looking for a Skid Steer Disc attachment for sale that can go the distance, the Annihilator is the perfect choice.

 

Discover the Speed of our Disc Mulcher for Skid Steers

Another amazing fact about our product? The massive weight of the wholly machined forestry disc combined with the power and torque of the Bent Axis Piston supplies the energy and momentum needed to mulch trees and brush. These units are capable of cutting up to a 14-inch diameter tree. Using a back dragging technique, you can mulch material into the ground, and you can be more efficient than any mulching mower or mulching head. Nothing is quite as efficient as our quick attach disc mulcher when it’s time to get the job done.

With a shelf life 3 to 5 times longer than steel, carbide teeth require no maintenance. Our carbide teeth are designed to slice through thick terrain and withstand maximum ground contact. 

Additionally, the Disc Mulcher Annihilator’s 3 /8-inch deck thickness efficiently manages how material flows through the mulching chamber and maximizes your cut-and-feed operating technique for seamless land clearing. You won’t find another skid steer disc attachment for sale that works at the same level of efficiency.

Tips for Disc Mulcher Operation

Keep the Annihilator Close to the Ground for an Even Cut

Because of its heavyweight and rapid cutting speed, it’s best to keep your annihilator close to the ground, so your attachment has continuous support.

 

• Safety First

Once your attachment is in action, it’s going to send mulch and heavy debris flying across the work area. Rather than risk accidental harm or damage, make sure your pathway is clear. Bystanders should be at least 300′ away from the attachment to prevent injury. 

• Change Your Speed 

The hydraulic gauge produces plenty of pressure while you’re working, and so to optimize your workload, it’s essential to regulate your speeds. As the pressure increases, back off your pace, and once it gets lower again, you can cut into material faster. This is a great way to keep the balance within your machine.

• Clean Your Attachment Frequently

Removing heavy-duty limbs, trees, and branches means there are lots of opportunities for excessive debris. For your Annihilator to cut at its highest capacity, it’s essential to clear out all unwanted waste in between uses.

• Stop If You Experience Abnormal Vibrations or Sounds

If you feel any unusual rattling or heavy vibrations during use, it might result from damage or trapped debris. Stop and clean out the disc mulcher for skid steers if you’re unsure of what’s occurring.

 

Efficiently Remove Trees 

Keep the Following in Mind When Clearing Trees:

  1. Find the tree you wish to remove, engage the cutter so it moves in a fluid motion.
  2. Slice through the base of the tree cleanly, so it doesn’t leave more than a stump behind.
  3. Continue to cut through trees in sections, giving your attachment enough time to cut through a tree’s base before moving onto the next.
  4. Use the tree cutter to slice through limbs and other unwanted branches along the tree.
  5. For troublesome stumps or sticks, center your mulching teeth over the wood, and grind down the remainder of the stump.

We custom build each Annihilator specifically for the machine that it will be going on. This customization will allow you to get the most out of your machine and your disc mulcher for skid steers. Before selecting your Annihilator size, we recommend you review the carrying capacity of your skid steer loader to ensure the best compatibility for your machine.

I had ordered a BRUSH CUTTER FOR SKID STEER, CTL, AND MTL 60″ RUT MFG TERMINATOR 15-27 GPM at the end of last year and finally was able to use it for the first time here on our farm. I have 60 acres with about 50 of those being heavily wooded with multiflora rose, up to 5″ or 5″ grapevines, and thick growth of who knows what. Today is my fourth day of using this Brush Cutter for RUT MFG and I couldn’t be happier with this piece of machinery. When I ordered, I had Tony install stump grinding teeth (I think there are 22 of them) and that really helps when I cut a tree and then use the teeth to grind down near ground level. I highly recommend using RUT MFG. Feel free to reach out to me if you care to check up on my thoughts in a month or two.

I bought the Rut manufacturing brush eliminator for my Kubota kx040 excavator. Wow, this is the way to clear blackberries and brush up to 4-inch diameter in a hurry. Way to go Rut manufacturing I will definitely recommend their products and services.

Excavator mounted log splitter is spot on. Split and load wood and never leave the seat of your machine. Wish I had this many years ago. Rut fitted the unit to my machine easily, I installed the unit and went to work!!
