Frequently Asked Questions

Why opt for a cutting-edge style tooth?

There are primarily three tooth styles: Planar, Cobra, and Carbide Tipped.

  • Planar Teeth are excellent, all-purpose teeth which perform in trees and excel in brushing applications.
  • Cobra teeth have a smaller initial piercing area, which makes the ideal choice when working primarily among trees.
  • Carbide teeth offer some protection from accidental ground-engaging but are better suited for low speed, high torque applications.

Chain vs. Belt Deflector: How do they differ?

  • Our Raptor mower heads come standard with chain deflectors, built robustly to prevent large debris from overshooting. These chains, attached to an easily replaceable guard, are extremely durable.
  • Belt deflectors excel in deflection, but lack flexibility. Back swinging on a stump might cause damage. However, they can effectively pile up brush for easy mowing and mulching.

Can you handle a heap of brush?

Certainly! Although mowing a standing tree is preferred, ground brush and pre-piled brush can be easily managed.

Daily clearing capacity?

Machinery of this caliber can clear approximately 1.5 to 2 acres daily.

Is the mower head robust?

Without a doubt! Crafted from Hardox, it stands resilient against flexing and is doubly robust compared to mild steel. Our mower heads impress with their heavy-duty build, devoid of any compromises.

RPM specifications?

Our heads operate at about 1400 to 1600 RPM.

Why does competitor XXXX’s mower head operate at a higher RPM?

Mostly, it’s due to their tooth design requiring higher speeds. A higher RPM compromises torque and increases wait time before the next cut. This isn’t ideal. With fixed horsepower, as RPM increases, torque diminishes.

For example, using the formula for Torque = (HP x 5252) / RPM:

A 60 HP excavator with our head spinning at 1500 RPM generates 210-foot pounds of torque. Doubling the RPM to 3000 reduces torque to 105 foot-pounds.

Nature of your bearings: fixed or floating?

It’s versatile – our bearing design allows for easy switching between held and floating modes via a simple twist lock mechanism.

What’s implied by “modular design”?

Our heads are conceived for flexibility. For instance, a person with a 10,000 lb excavator who later acquires a 22,000 lb one can use the same head. All it requires is a quick swap of attachment points and a matching hydraulic motor for the new excavator.
