  2. The Next Evolution of Excavator Flail Mowers


    Bradco Flail Mowers for excavators are the newest additions to Paladin’s ground-clearing selection of attachments. The new Bradco flail mowers are capable of clearing tall grasses, heavy brush and trees up to 4 to 6 in. (10 to 15 cm) in diameter from areas such as hillsides, roadways, ditches, utility right-of-ways, riverbanks and lakesides. Excavator mounting allows municipalities, utility companies, farmers, ranchers and contractors to easily reach over obstructions, into ditches and up hillsides. Bi-directional cutting and discharge capabilities allow operators to control the direction of cut materials away from buildings, roadways and bystanders, and when the excavator is equipped with a case drain, the blades are designed to come to a complete stop within four to five seconds for additional safety. Bradco’s flail mowers are available in light duty (FME30) for mounting on three- to six-ton (2.7 to 5.4 t) excavators and heavy duty (FME40) for mounting on 6- to 10-ton (5.4 to 9 t) excavators.

    To reduce wear and tear on the drive train and maximize the operational life of the Bradco flail mowers, the drive train features a torsion disc to protect the motor and drive assembly from damage by absorbing the impact forces from the cutting blades. Other designs use rubber isolation discs that can oxidize and degrade over time. These units also are equipped with a staggered blade pattern to reduce the transfer of cyclical cutting blade impact forces to the drive train while providing a smoother experience for the operator.

    To further protect the drive train from dust, debris and wire damage, the Bradco flail mowers have heavy-duty flanges on both ends of the rotor. Adjustable skid shoes are standard, allowing the operator to follow the contours of the ground without interfering or obstructing cutting capabilities in either direction. Other flail mowers feature rollers that can catch on vegetation and obstruct access to the cutting blades.

    The FME40 heavy duty flail mower also features an optional thumb saddle that can be used with or without an excavator thumb to move obstructions out of the way without damaging the housing.

  3. Bradco Tree, Shrub Grapple Makes digging Easy

    DSC_0329The Bradco tree and shrub grapple by Paladin Attachments is the newest addition to Paladin’s grapple selection. It is designed to make some of the hardest tasks in landscaping quicker, cleaner and safer, according to the manufacturer.

    Mounted on versatile compact tool carriers, the tree and shrub grapple can easily remove small trees, shrubs, ornamentals and small stumps — even in tight spaces. A hydraulically-powered alternative to shovels, axes, chains, or stump grinders, the tree and shrub grapple attachment reduces job time by effectively removing the whole plant, including the stump, tap and secondary root system, in one simple step. In addition to being easy to use, the tree and shrub grapple keeps clean up to a minimum by leaving dirt, gravel, mulch, etc. in place with minimal disruption to the removal site, which can often be cleaned up with just a broom.

    Paladin recently put the tree and shrub grapple to the test on a residential condominium project. In just three hours the contractor was able to cleanly remove more than fifty small trees and shrubs with no damage to the surrounding vegetation, residential structures, irrigation systems or decorative garden materials. A job that would typically have required a two-man crew several days to complete with conventional tools was easily condensed into a few hours allowing the contractor to quickly finish this project and move on to the next, according to the manufacturer.

    The tree and shrub grapple is constructed of half-inch (1.3 cm) AR 400 and AR 235 high-strength steel for maximum durability for years to come. The grapple attachment weighs 185 lbs. (84 kg) with a maximum working pressure (PSI) of 3,000 pounds to tackle the toughest applications.

    There are many other uses for the tree and shrub grapple attachment, including breaking up and removing asphalt driveways and removing small stumps and other appropriately sized materials.
