    Default Davco Brush Cutter

    Hello all,

    Anyone have experience with a Davco Brush cutter? It's the closest thing I can find to a mulcher for rental in my area (Nor Cal). Wondering if its end result will look more like a mulcher or more like the results of my CUT's rear rotary mower.

    Looks like it will be mounted on a bobcat T250. Will be going after coastal scrub brush, up to about wrist size and slightly greater diameter.

    TIA<

    I just traded in my Davco 705 for a mulcher. The Davco left a lot of material uncut. Frequently, brush would get wrapped around the spindle, above the cutter plate, stalling the cutter. I kept a steel cable in the cab, shutdown, get out, get cable around the stuck tree to a standing tree, then backup the machine to unwrap the spindle. Lost work time.

    The Davco Head throws material can be dangerous They have band it's use in some areas to the material throw. It is a slashing procedure and leaves untouched material Fecon have introduced a FRM70 Head which is way better

    Rotary cutters are not comparable to mulchers. I have a brushmonster high flow. I bought it new and haven't used it but a few times. The rotory cutter is only comparable to a bush hog (a souped up one). It will leave large pieces and stumps, stubble, etc. It awesome if it's all you have... but if you have a mulcher you'll only use the rotary cutter to reach across an occasional ditch you need some extra reach on.
