Battle Ax – H Series

Prime Movers With 50-150 Horsepower

The Loftness Battle Ax H Series isn’t your average mulching head. It offers heavy-duty construction engineered especially for prime movers with 50-150 horsepower. Of course, it also features our popular Battle Ax rotor design with depth gauges and a two-stage cutting chamber for exceptional mulching performance.

Learn What Makes the Battle Ax Better

FEATURES:

Depth Gauges

The Battle Ax rotor design uses built-in depth gauges to control cutting depth, like raker teeth on a chainsaw.

Two-Stage Cutting Chamber

Two shear bars allow the Battle Ax to produce a finer mulch with fewer passes. The primary shear bar is adjustable for controlling particle sizes. The secondary shear bar is replaceable.

Convenient Tooth Mounting

The cutting teeth are mounted to the rotor with a single bolt. They can be easily reversed, replaced or removed on the jobsite using a common hex socket.

High-Performance Teeth Options

Choose from three teeth options:

Quadco planer blades
Hard-surface Quadco blades
Standard carbide teeth

V-Drive Variable-Displacement Piston Motor

The V-Drive uses a variable-displacement piston motor, which automatically shifts the rotor RPM from the highest speed to a lower range for increased torque, as needed. The result is less stalling and a shorter recovery time, helping operators to concentrate on the job instead of power settings and continuous head repositioning. This motor provides a more effective use of power as the head RPM increases under lighter loads, allowing operators to quickly slice through smaller or more flexible growth, as well as when back-dragging material on the ground. As larger trees, trunks and stumps are engaged, the motor increases the drive displacement to increase torque.

Synchronous Belt Drive

The positive drive, cog belt and sprocket design maximizes efficiency and requires less maintenance than other drive types.

Machined Anti-Wrap Bearing Protection

Rotor ends are machine turned to mate with close tolerance, machined anti-wrap rings, which minimize debris in the bearing chamber.

Manual or Hydraulic Push Bar

A hydraulic or manually adjustable push bar is available. Constructed with integrated, welded claw hooks, the bar helps push falling trees and brush away from the power unit, while also allowing them to be properly positioned for efficient feeding into the head.

Performance Monitoring

An integrated PSI gauge that monitors the hydraulic load is positioned for easy viewing from the skid steer cab. It helps keep the Battle Ax at the optimum hydraulic load for peak performance throughout an application.

Custom Hydraulic Valve

A high-pressure relief valve protects the Battle Ax from pressure spikes at the source. It also includes an anti-cavitation shutdown circuit.

Premium Strength Steel Housing

All body components are laser cut from premium strength steel. Also, abrasion resistant steel is used in high-wear areas.

Steel Deflector Chains

Running the entire length of the mulching attachment, steel deflector chains improve safety by reducing flying debris.

Maximum Visibility

The Battle Ax is designed for maximum visibility from the skid steer cab, which increases safety, productivity and efficiency.

Optional Bolt-In Liner

A bolt-in liner can be added for use in abrasive environments.

2-Year Warranty

The Battle Ax comes standard with an industry-leading 2-year warranty.

QUADCO PLANER BLADES

Reversible with ultra-sharp, heat-treated steel knife edges, Quadco blades effortlessly slice through trees and vegetation, as opposed to shredding and tearing. They can be reversed on site for a fresh cutting edge, effectively doubling their service life between sharpening. The depth gauges on the Battle Ax maximize performance of these blades by preventing them from biting into too much material at one time.

HARD-SURFACE QUADCO BLADES

Reversible with ultra-sharp, heat-treated steel knife edges, Quadco blades effortlessly slice through trees and vegetation, as opposed to shredding and tearing. They can be reversed on site for a fresh cutting edge, effectively doubling their service life between sharpening. The depth gauges on the Battle Ax maximize performance of these blades by preventing them from biting into too much material at one time.

STANDARD CARBIDE TEETH

Carbide cutting teeth are highly durable for withstanding tough operating conditions, such as rocky terrain. The Battle Ax rotor is designed to work well with these teeth, whereas ring-style rotors tend to have difficulty picking up material when using carbides.
