The 48X packs a punch.


Introducing the new Brush Wolf 48X HD & 48X XP for your mini excavator or backhoe loader. Designed with a piston motor to increase motor efficiency with quicker recovery time, runs cooler and without cavitation on shutdown. With the faster recovery time you will snap through brush quickly and accelerate your job completions. The open sides of the 48X expose the blades and destroy brush at impact. Efficiency improvements abound. You will clear dense brush and saplings up to 6″ in diameter with the long-lasting high tempered steel blades. A vented hood improves drive-train protection. Hanger, pins and chain guards are sold separately, and on a per request basis. Excavator requirements of an enclosed cab with shatter-proof glass.

There are two 48X options available dependent on the excavator’s primary auxiliary hydraulic flow:
The 48X HD requires between 17-29 GPM (Gallons Per Minute) with a max PSI setting (Pounds per Square Inch) of 3500 – cuts up to 5″ diameter brush.
The 48X XP requires between 30-37 GPM  (Gallons Per Minute) with a max PSI setting (Pounds per Square Inch) of 4000 – cuts up to 6″ diameter brush.

The small size easily maneuvers in tight spaces at a job site, around buildings, fence lines or on your property. Cross-Tech engineers each cutter with the correct hydraulic motor to achieve the highest torque available while maintaining a proven blade tip speed ideal for your operating equipment. Three year warranty on the structural steel and 18 months on the hydraulic motor.
