In low flow I cut down a 10in live oak and mulched it up no problem I cut and trimmed along a gas line were my customer plants a food plot he can defently can see from one end to the other now.

    This unit is rated up to 45 gpm, I was also surprised how well it mulched up the material.

    Looks like the diamond does a nice job. How was it at containing debris without chucking it way out there?

    It still throws debris pretty far but not as bad as the davcos I've ran in the past.

    Just got my jumper to run the diamond in high flow I hope its xhp. Cat didn't offer just the jumper they only offer it in a kit that includes the bigger hyd. Quick couplers and the jumper that was going to be like 400.00 so my dealership made a jumper for me for nothing they said thanks for buying the machine.
    Hope it is xhp

    you can run the machine in all 3 modes depending what pins you have grounded, i just got done making a switch harness to put in the cab to switch between XPS, XHP and low flow..... YOU DO NOT WANT TO RUN YOUR DIAMOND IN XHP...... you will regret it no matter what your dealer says....... we just ate a davco motor on a customer demo because someone forgot to switch to XPS....... your motor is only rated for 36 gpm at 3250 psi...... XHP is 38-41 at 4500+ psi........ it builds to much heat and not only derates constantly but will burn the seals out of the motor on the mower. some of the first 299d's where actual incorrectly calibrated at the factor and are putting out over 45gpm at 4700 psi!!!
