STRONG ARGUMENTS:

 

  • No expenditures for removal of the cut-off material
  • High cutting performance due to the double blade system
  • Reduction of diseases in the hedge
  • Low noise level which reduces noise nuisance
  • The enclosed cutter housing improves safety
  • Minimal wear and maintenance costs

 

The Rotary Hedge Cutter RC 162 has a working width of 1.6 m (5'3")The Rotary Hedge Cutter RC 162 cuts branches of up to 40 cm (1.57”) in thicknessThe Rotary Hedge Cutter RC 162 has a maximum speed of 2.5 km/h (1.55 mph)The Rotary Hedge Cutter RC 162 weighs 200 kg (441 lb)

 

Hydraulic Hedge Trimmer Attachment for Tractors, Loaders, Telehandlers and Excavators

 

The Rotary Hedge Cutter is a professional attachment tool designed specifically for hedge cutting and developed for the discerning customer with a focus on:
Cutting performance, efficiency, output and working environment.

 

The GreenTec Rotary Hedge Cutter RC 162 performs three operations in one. It cuts, shreds and disposes the cut-off material. The blade system consists of 18 special hardened blades that provides a smooth and consistent cut of branches up to 4 cm (1.57") in diameter.

 

The Rotary Hedge Cutter RC 162 can be attached to our Multi Carrier HXF 3302 which can be mounted on front end loaders, telehandlers, wheel loaders and excavators. You can also attach the RC 162 to our Scorpion boom mowers or other manufacturers of boom mowers for tractors. Another possibility is to mount the Rotary Hedge Cutter RC 162 directly on the arm of excavators.

Blade system

 

The blade system differs from the previous models as it is equipped with 6 blades per rotor instead of 4. This increases the cut frequency by 50%, enhancing the capability and creating a better shredding effect. The blades can rotate 360 degrees which allow each blade to swing back if overloaded.

 

Blade system of the Rotary Hedge Cutter RC series

 

 

Hydraulic motor and Power Belt drive

 

The transmission system is driven by a Power Belt with a centrally placed hydraulic motor. The previous model was equipped with three serially connected hydraulic motors- The new construction is thereby simpler and extremely reliabel.
