Designed for compact loaders up to 75 hp, the Drum Mulcher DC Pro from Diamond Mowers is the latest addition to the company’s lineup of vegetation management tools.
The attachment is built on Diamond Mower’s proven excavator drum mulcher platform but is optimized for use with skid-steers and compact track loaders.
Weighing 612 kg, the Drum Mulcher DC Pro’s 63 CC, two-speed, bent-axis piston motor allows the DC Pro to spool-up faster and deliver greater force to power through more and larger material.
“It’s lighter weight design provides versatility for tackling a variety of common land maintenance tasks from managing overgrowth and maintaining fence lines to creating defensible space,” said Dan Stachel, Executive Vice President of Diamond Mowers.
“The streamlined profile also affords good operator visibility and maneuverability, while the chassis positions the centre of gravity close to the loader for optimal stability – even on steep slopes.”
The DC Pro is engineered with a 1.3 metre cutting width to slice through trees and brush and mulch material up to 20-cm in diameter.
The depth control drum features a forward exposure that allows for optimum tree engagement and maximum cut width relative to weight.
A rugged chassis guards the motor from ground impact and allows the operator to manipulate downed material and position vegetation for effective mulching.
A multi-position push bar features extended serrations for material control while the optimized infeed system achieves a complete mulch on the first pass, producing an aesthetically desirable chip size and reducing the need for back-dragging and reprocessing.
“This new offering embodies efficiency and allows owners and operators to optimize the utilization of their compact loaders and adapt to different environments without needing to switch equipment,” Stachel said.
“Customers who add this attachment to their arsenal aren’t just getting a new tool; they’re getting a machine that maximizes productivity, minimizes hassle and sets a new standard for mulching excellence.”
The Drum Mulcher DC Pro comes standard with Diamond Mower’s Twin Chisel Planer Teeth that quickly generate fine mulch.
The attachment also accommodates other teeth options for tackling different types of terrain, including twin maul carbide teeth for use in rough, rocky terrain, and four-point hardened steel teeth well-suited for work in high-production environments.
“At Diamond, we’re constantly innovating and enhancing our products and processes to cater more effectively to our customers’ needs,” Stachel said.
“We are committed to being the best possible partner, from creating industry-leading attachments that simplify work and enhance productivity to our dedicated customer care experts and the ongoing support we provide.”
