And carbide cutting teeth that last hundreds of hours. Field-tested in the toughest environments.

Designed to eliminate the need for more than one cutting pass, the Vortex is ideal for fast vegetation mowing jobs. With both a closed end and an open-end deck design, each model is matched to its machine carrier and hydraulic flow rates to maximize cutting efficiency. Available in both 70 and 80 inch wide cutting width models.
For 10T to 25T excavators. Without using bucket trucks and chain saws, maneuver in tight, hard-to-reach locations. Sleek, narrow frame design, shear blade assembly that closes on a fixed anvil. With 180-degree hydraulic rotation reach and cut any limb. Ideal for powerline and high-reach maintenance of way vegetation clearance.
