MS972 Heavy Duty Fixed Tooth Mulcher for Skidsteer

The MS972 Baumalight brush mulcher is much like our MS960 only wider featuring a 72” rotor and 84” path width.
It has the same teeth and like the MS960 also has replaceable wear plates and a very short frame which brings the weight closer to the skidsteer allowing very productive mulching with a smaller track machine or wheeled skidsteer.
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.

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.

Adjustable skid shoes

ROLL BACK TO FELL STANDING TREES

The MS972’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 MS972 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.

Curved hose bracket

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.

Armoured and sleeved

CENTERED ADJUSTABLE HOSE SUPPORT

To accomodate for different skidsteers that have the couplers on different sides, the MS972's hose support is positioned close to the centre of the mulching head and has an adjustable hose.

Centered adjustable hose support

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.

Adjustable belt tensioner

OPTIONAL TWO-SPEED MOTOR

To maximize the rotor speed and torque to account for changing mulching material, the MS972 is available with a variable two-speed motor option.

Optional two speed motor

BENT AXIS PISTON MOTORS ARE A STANDARD OPTION

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

Bent axis piston motor

PRESSURE GUAGE

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

Pressure guage

CASE DRAIN – VENT TO ATMOSPHERE

To prevent pressure relief activation on the motor seal, the MS972 comes with a case drain line and a vent to atmosphere relief 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 or if the line is blocked, then the case drain will vent to notify you. A properly installed case drain protected by a vent to atmosphere relief valve will save the work of replacing your shaft seal and save you from down time of unexpected maintenance. To learn more CLICK HERE about the case drain line.

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.

Chain curtain

heavy duty frame

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 frame

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.

Heavy duty skidsteer plate

Powdered Coated

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

Powdered coated

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 MS972 mulcher head now allows the operator better visibility to the area you are mulching.

IMPROVED WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

To improve the weight management of the Brush Mulcher, the MS972 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

EASY ACCESS GREASE FITTINGS

Reduce your regular maintenance time by easily greasing the bearings on the MS972 from outside the frame. No tools required.
