Who Makes the Best Skid Steer Mulcher?

Who Makes the Best Skid Steer Mulcher?

This is a common question when it comes to choosing a skid steer mulcher and the answer is easy: Gyro-Trac makes the best skid steer mulcher based on specifications, warranty and customer reviews.

Your choice in choosing the best skid steer mulcher will make a major difference to your daily mulching output, so we know how important it is for you to choose the right one for your business. To answer the question, who makes the best skid steer mulcher, we are going to look at several factors that go into buying this awesome piece of equipment. 

In the case of finding the best skid steer mulching attachment, it all boils down to productivity, making the most profit in the least amount of time. Wouldn’t you agree? 

The most critical factor when choosing the best skid steer mulcher is to find the one that will make you the most money, whether by the sheer volume of material that it can mulch, or from reliability in the field limiting down time, or in labor savings. When you think about these factors (and so many more) Gyro-Trac clearly is the best on the market!

Gyro-Trac's machines and attachments are faster with better productivity. Not only that, they continue to have the quality they’ve always had as the original motorized rotary mulching equipment, with superior features that help you get the job done right. But this isn’t just a sales pitch. Let’s break down the ways Gyro-Trac makes the best skid steer mulcher so you can see for yourself.

A Superior Drum Design

What Is The Best Mulching head For A Skid Steer?

There are several factors that set Gyro-Trac above the competition when it comes to the best mulching attachment head. Gyro-Trac mulchers use patented cutting technology that utilizes a sharp edge knife or a blade, much like an ax, to cut wood into mulch. This is a vast improvement over the carbide tip hammer used by competitors, which acts like a blunt hammer. You can easily imagine which one would work better for mulching trees and vegetation.

The control rib acts like a guard to control the depth of the blade’s cut, limiting the amount of wood it chips in each turn of the drum . This design uses much less energy than the large bite of a cantilever hammer, which gives you large shreds. The spiral pattern of a Gyro-Trac keeps impact to one tooth at a time, further cutting down on energy output while still mulching quickly and effectively.

The spiral also draws material to it with a vacuum effect, cutting down on time. The patented splitter mounted below the blade further shreds material into a smaller size so wood shears away from the drum as it cuts and avoids clogging between the teeth and ribs.

Industry leading Mulcher Cutter Teeth

The self-sharpening Cutter-head teeth allow you to continue working when competitors would have to continually stop for sharpening. These are only some of the many features that make this design an improvement over competitors. We’re happy to show you how the design would work better for you through a product demo.

Overall, Gyro-Trac Cutter-heads are able to mulch more wood faster than competitors. They enable you to increase your output while using less horsepower, reducing your impact on the environment and creating less waste. With the same conditions, Gyro-Trac’s mulching options are able to outperform any competitors of other rotary-drum mulching machine/cutter head combinations.

Self-Sharpening Cutter-head Teeth

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]How do self-sharpening teeth sound?

That adds up to five+ hours each week…20+ hours per month. Imagine how much more productive you and your business would be if you could skip that step.

We’ve come up with the way to eliminate re-sharpening. Gain the benefits of our self-sharpening Cutter-head teeth. Each set lasts for almost 100 hours worth of work. Once it's given you its maximum output, simply replace it with another set. They easily pay for themselves through the amount of labor you save and the extra work you can accomplish.
