MS960 Heavy Duty Fixed Tooth Mulcher for Skidsteer

The MS960 Baumalight brush mulcher is a 60” heavy duty bush mulcher with a 75” Path width and it has turned into a very popular model for mulching with average to large skidsteers.
The 900 Series teeth are available in either Double Carbide Tipped Ripper or Single Blade Planer style. The carbide Ripper tooth is the good general use tooth for mulching with lots of ground contact, if there are not many stones then the Planer tooth is a little bit more efficient.
The 900 series skidsteer mulchers also come with a larger pressure gauge which is very handy to watch and see how close you are to maximum pressure; once you start blowing over relief the mulcher becomes very unproductive so you do want to keep an eye on the pressure.
Operating a Brush Mulcher from a skid steer is probably the most comfortable way for vegetation management as your work is directly in front of you and new skidsteers are very operator comfort focused.
See our brush cutting size chart to see what limb size this heavy duty skidsteer mounted forestry mulcher can handle.

Integrated push bar

The integrated brush bar helps control the brush and bend taller brush for easier mulching.

ADJUSTABLE SKID SHOES

These two position skid shoes allow you to adjust the cutting height for optimal clearing performance.

Adjustable skid shoes

ARMOURED AND SLEEVED

Baumalight hoses are sleeved for the operator and hose protection. A pivoting arm is also standard with a greaseable pin keeping the slack out of the way which protects the hoses from dangerous pinching and strain.

700 Series Ripper Teeth

The 700 Series tooth utilizes the Cup and Cone mount, which is machined into the holder and forged into the teeth. Engineered to take all the strain off the mounting bolt and eliminating shearing forces, these carbide teeth are bolted in place.

OPTION TO CHANGE OUT FOR 700 SERIES PLANER TEETH

Baumalight gives you the option to change out the ripper teeth for the planer style for a sharper bite with a smoother cut, but these teeth are more vulnerable to damage from rocks. Ripper teeth handle rocks much better, so Planer teeth are only recommended for cutting applications where efficiency is more important than tooth life.

Hardened Tooth Holders

These heavy-duty tooth holders resist bending and keep you working longer.

Hardened tooth holders

Spiral Tooth Pattern

For smoother mulching, the spiral tool pattern allows one tooth to engage at a time.

Overtorque Protection Relief Valve

The relief valve protects the motor and the hydraulic system from pressure spikes. When an obstacle is hit the relief valves open and relieves the pressure.

Pressure Gauge

Large PSI pressure gauge for maintaining the optimal flow that gives you a clear indication of the most efficient brush mulching performance.

REINFORCED BELT

A heavy duty reinforced belt delivers the force from the gear box to the rotor. This offers protection from the shocks inherent in mulching.

Reinforced belt

Wire Protection Kit

Protective steel cover that prevents damage from wire fencing.

Chain Curtain

The rear of the unit is guarded by a chain curtain so standing brush enters and mulched debris exits.

heavy duty frame

Heavy duty frame with T1 alloy tool steel sheet metal for all the main areas. Powder coated frame with multiple anti-slip pads to give you secure footing for ease of entry and exit from your cab.

Powdered Coated

Our powder coat finish is much tougher than conventional paint to stand up to the rigors of mulching and helps prevent rusting.

BENT AXIS PISTON MOTOR

Our industry leading bent axis piston motors make the most use of your hydraulic flow and pressure for your brush clearing needs.

Anti Slip Strip

For ease of entry and exit from the cab an anti-slip strip gives sure footing.

overHung Load Adapter (bearing support)

Baumalight mulchers use an overhung load adapter which is designed with tapered roller bearings to stand up to the rigors of heavy mulching.

Directional felling hook

Built into the pusher bar, the directional felling hook will directionally control wayward trees, sprawling clumps and low hanging limbs.

ADJUSTABLE SKID SHOES

The two replaceable skid shoes allow the operator to adjust the cutting height for optimal clearing performance.

ROLL BACK TO FELL STANDING TREES

The MS960’s frame is angled so that you can roll back the Brushy Mulcher, pulling back the pusher bar so that you can fully engage the mulching head. This allows the operator to use the mulching head to fell standing trees.

ROLL BACK TO FELL STANDING TREES

SPRING LOADED HOSE SUPPORT

Take full advantage of the forward curl and roll back of the MS960 without risking expensive damage to the hoses. Unique to the Baumalight Brush Mulcher, the spring loaded hose support prevents the hoses from falling into harm’s way during forward curl.

Spring loaded hose support

CURVED HOSE BRACKET

The new curved host bracket provides better support of the hose while reducing the risk of pinching or chafing.

ARMOURED AND SLEEVED

Baumalight hoses are sleeved for the operator and hose protection. A pivoting arm is also standard with a greasable pin keeping the slack out of the way which protects the hoses from dangerous pinching and strain.

CENTERED ADJUSTABLE HOSE SUPPORT

To accomodate for different skidsteers that have the couplers on different sides, the MS960's hose support is positioned close to the centre of the mulching head and has an adjustable hose.

ADJUSTABLE BELT TENSIONER

The adjustable belt tensioner ensures the proper tension of your belts, with no extra idler wheel that could wear out. Simply loosen the bolts and raise the motor mount to tighten the belt.

OPTIONAL TWO-SPEED MOTOR

To maximize the rotor speed and torque to account for changing mulching material, the MS960 is available with a variable two-speed motor option.

PRESSURE GUAGE

Large PSI pressure guage for maintaining the optimal flow that gives you a clear indication of the most efficient brush mulching performance.

CASE DRAIN - BURST DISK

To prevent pressure relief activation on the motor seal, the MS960 comes with a case drain line and a burst disk valve. In the event there is a spike in pressure in your hydraulic lines, the case drain will relieve the pressure and drain it back into the return line and back to the tank. If the connection of the case drain (third line) is missed, then the case drain will blow which is easily fixed. A properly installed case drain protected by a burst disk will save the work of replacing your shaft seal and also improve the efficiency of your hydraulic system. To learn more CLICK HERE

Case drain burst disk

Wire Protection Kit

If you are mulching and you catch some old fence wire, it can really cause damage to the unit if the wire slips over the edge of the rotor and gets wrapped around the shaft. The wire can get bunched against the bearings, causing major damage. Our wire protection kit contains a welded raised area on the end of the rotor that protects the shaft and prevents wire from getting in.

Wire protection kit

Chain Curtain

The rear of the unit is guarded by a 3/8” thick chain curtain so standing brush enters and mulched debris exits.

Now completely redesigned for the 900 series Brush Mulcher, the heavy duty steel frame is constructed with T1 alloy tool steel sheet metal.

HEAVY DUTY SKIDSTEER PLATE

Also redesigned for the 900 Series Brush Mulcher, the skidsteer plate is constructed with heavy duty steel with lots of gusseting and reinforcements.

STEP GRIP IN FRAME

The powder coated frame has multiple anti-slip pads and laser cut steps, giving the operator a secure footing for easy entry and exit from the cab.

ENHANCED operator VISIBILITY

The improved design of the MS960 mulcher head now allows the operator better visibility to the area you are mulching.

Enhanced operator visibility

IMPROVED WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

To improve the weight management of the Brush Mulcher, the MS960 is now designed with the rotor closer to the carrier. This unique design feature allows for smaller carriers to be able to manage a larger mulcher.

Improved weight management

REPLACEABLE BOLT-IN WEAR PLATES

Save time by easily replacing the AR400 steel wear plates on the MS960 without needing to remove the rotor.
