Up your brush-cutting game with the next generation of rotary cutters for mini and mid-size excavators/backhoes. We’ve upgraded our heavy-duty cutters with a powerful piston motor for higher torque and included a hydraulic relief block with an integrated case drain. The now removable chain curtains accommodate different cutting styles, and the vented, hinged hood improves drive-train protection. Big in power, yet still the right size to squeeze in tight spaces. A dependable, versatile cutter you’ll use for virtually everything.

Number of Blades

(2) 0.5 x 4 in; updraft

Blade Type

High-tempered updraft steel blades for lift and mulching action.

Blade Carrier

1” GRD-50 disc.
All Brush Wolf blade carriers are CNC balanced for ultra-smooth operation.

Drop blade

Long-Lasting Blades

The Brush Wolf industrial-strength drop-down blades are heat treated, have a milled edge, and are Supertuf coated to stand the test of time.


Direct-Drive Piston Motor

Experience the power of the direct-drive SAI® radial piston motor. With higher torque, you’ll get more cutting power, quicker recovery time, and less bogging down when accelerating through thick brush.


Massive Bearing Housing

We pair our direct-drive radial piston motor with a robust Eskridge® bearing housing that has a 2.25” shaft diameter and patented shaft retention system.


Motor Protection

Pressure Relief Valves: Added pressure relief valves safeguard your motor from pressure spikes and allow for a faster shutdown.

Case Drain is included to relieve excess pressure build-up and protect the motor.


Gearbox Seal Protection

A welded seal guard collar prevents wire, twine, and vegetation from wrapping around and damaging the gearbox.


Ultra-Rugged Deck Frame

Here’s why our brush cutters last for life. We build each deck frame from a single piece of formed heavy-duty steel, never pieced together. This means our frames are consistently better made and more durable, with the elimination of construction errors and frame failure. One-piece frames will always provide superior strength.


Seam Welding

Unlike our competitors, Brush Wolf’s deck and frame construction is fully boxed and continuously welded across each seam for an indestructible, rust-proof support structure.

Boxed-in gusset

Reinforced Gussets

We went above and beyond to make sure our cutters are crazy strong by adding boxed-in gusset reinforcements, extra bracing, and supports.

Powder coating cutters

Powder-Coated Tough

Protected with the most durable finishing process, we powder coat every part to minimize rust, resist scratches, and prevent fading, so you get more life out of your brush cutter.

Blade Access Cover

Blade Access Cover

Easy access to the blade bolts for quick blade replacement.

Couplers and dust caps

Plug + Play Ready

Everything is ready to go upon delivery with the included quick-connect couplers, 90” hydraulic hoses encased in protective wrap, and dust caps to prevent line contamination.

Advanced Hose Routing System

We took the time to devise a well-thought-out hose routing system based on real-life situations. Using guides and STAUFF clamps, our hydraulic lines can be routed to either side. So, you choose which side works best for your machine.


Chain Curtains

Optional, removable 5/16” safety chains to accommodate different cutting styles.


The vented hood fully encloses the motor and drive components to shield them from damaging impacts and debris. The hood is also hinged to allow easy motor access.

Pilot guard

Pilot Guard

We took safety to the next level by welding a reinforced plate “pilot guard” to the underside of the cutter deck to protect you from flying objects.
