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...

Maintenance Tips for Your Skid Steer Brush Cutter

Maintenance Tips for Your Skid Steer Brush Cutter

If you want to get the best possible results for every landscaping job, the process begins with the condition of your equipment. Skid steer brush hogs are some of the most effective machines for chopping through thick undergrowth and making quick work of clearing large properties. However, falling behind on your equipment maintenance can impact how these attachments perform, making it harder to provide superior services in the future. Here, we’ve compiled several key maintenance tips for your skid steer brush cutter to ensure it’s always in peak form.

Reference Your Owner’s Manual

As you go to perform essential maintenance on your skid steer brush cutter, make sure that you read up on the requirements in the owner’s manual. Most brush hog attachments come with a manual that details important maintenance tasks. Not only does this guide educate you on important components to inspect, but it also gives you an accurate timeline for key replacements and checks. Referencing the manual regularly will ensure that you create the right maintenance timeline and that you perform these tasks correctly.

Keep Components Lubricated

You’ll also want to ensure that you keep all primary components along your brush hog well oiled. Over time, your brush cutter’s gear box oil will need changing. It needs the additional grease to maximize mobility and reduce damage. As such, you’ll want to routinely apply grease to these parts to reduce friction during operation and protect them from excess wear and tear. This way, your attachment will last much longer and experience less strain that can lead to damage.

Watch for Wear and Tear

Another crucial maintenance tip to use for your skid steer brush cutter is to keep an eye out for standard wear and tear. As you use your skid steer, it’s common for brush hog blades to experience minor forms of damage. Signs of this include blade dulling and nicks in the metal, which can both lead to bigger problems if left unaddressed. Identifying these signs can indicate that a part needs replacement or repairs. Fortunately, with regular inspections, you can find and address these issues before they worsen.

Clean the Drive System After Use

It’s important to note that proper cleaning of your brush hog is a part of regular maintenance as well. After all, brush cutters can collect large amounts of debris from the previous project. This includes things like grass clippings, small stones, and sticks from smaller trees. Cleaning out the drive system keeps inner components from corroding because of exposure to these materials. It also preserves the product’s lifespan and maximizes its long-term performance.

The better you can maintain your skid steer brush hog, the longer the lifespan the attachment will have, and the better its performance will be. This is especially true when you buy a brush cutter from McLaren Industries. Our skid steer attachments are the high-quality, long-lasting attachment you need to tackle any type of project with ease.
