Exceptional service differentiates Mclaren from its competitors." - Rob Pagacz (Bobcat S300 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "Tires are still working out great.

I have the TDF series track." - Scott Robinson (Takeuchi TL 150 compact track loader);                                                                                           "Your Protrac rubber have saved me thousands of dollars! I rented a track machine for one month prior to having your tracks, that rental cost would have covered the cost of the McLarens. I was expecting to have bought a new machine, but there has been no reason to as the OTTs have added lift capacity, stability, a softer ride, and of course traction beyond my wildest expectations. My machine rep is not happy with your product, no sale for him... Could not be happier, literally!" - Simon Huxtable (Bobcat 763 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "The up front cost is greater than others but quality and performance far outweigh the cost." - Bearden Services (Bobcat S250 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "The sales rep that handled my purchase was knowledgeable, polite, and knew his product...

What To Consider When Looking for a Skid Steer Brush Cutter Attachment

What To Consider When Looking for a Skid Steer Brush Cutter Attachment

A quality brush cutter attachment is one of the most effective tools you can have in the landscaping business. Designed to chop through thick undergrowth and foliage with ease, these devices improve your jobsite efficiency and results exponentially. But while it’s no secret that these attachments are highly useful, it can still be a bit difficult to find the right model for your needs. We’ve compiled a list of what to consider when looking for a skid steer brush cutter attachment to help make the buying process easier for you.

Brush Cutter Type

As you first begin your shopping for the perfect skid steer brush hog attachment, the primary thing to keep in mind is the type of cutter you want. These attachments come in open-face and closed-face models, and the type you choose can limit your cutting abilities on certain properties. Generally, open-face models are better for wide-open areas. Closed-face models are better in tighter spots near fences and larger trees. Because of this, it’s important to consider your cutting environment and job needs carefully when making your choice.

Flow and Power Capabilities

You’ll also want to think about your skid steer’s flow rate and how that compares to the attachment’s power capabilities. Some skid steer attachments have designated high or low hydraulic flow rates that affect the types of skid steers they’re compatible with. As such, choosing incorrectly can impact the amount of power you have when cutting a yard. Fortunately, McLaren’s skid steer brush hog attachments come with both high and low hydraulic flow rate capabilities, making it easy to find a model that works with your loader.

Skid Steer Operating Capacity

Skids steers can have varying operating capacities as well, and you'll need an attachment that falls within that range. For instance, brush hogs tend to weigh between 1000 and 2000 pounds, but not all skid steers can accommodate that weight. Make sure you have a skid steer that can lift that extra bulk and effectively maneuver with it. Reference your skid steer’s manufacturer’s guide for more detailed information on your model’s maximum capacity and operational limitations.

The Product's Manufacturer

One of the most vital things to consider when looking for a skid steer brush cutter attachment is the manufacturer you’re buying from. After all, buying from a quality manufacturer is a great way to ensure your product lasts. McLaren is one of the largest and highest quality skid steer attachment manufacturers around. We work hard to make quality, long-lasting products that are affordable for anyone who needs them.
