CXC542 Excavator Rotary Brush Cutter

The 42" Industrial excavator mounted rotary cutter CXC542 model is offered for mid-range excavators. Built much like the CXC550, the same bearing support is used with only the frame and rotor smaller for less weight to go on smaller excavators.
We offer multiple motors to exact match your flow so be sure to checkout the motor options area of the page below to maximize your work as you clear land with your excavator.

Three Cuts per Pass

As the rotating rotor mass throws the slasher blades at small diameter trees, the blade slices small sections away as the Brush Cutt advances forward. The leading tip takes a small bite and is immediately followed by the second tip taking another bite at 75–100 slashes per second with devastating results. The Brush Cutt’s reversible/replaceable blades are made of long lasting 1/2" AR 400 steel.

Two Cuts per Pass and a Real Slasher

Large Bearing Support

Carburized alloy steel shafts are standard measuring 2.95" in diameter at the bearings and weighing substantial 104lbs. Built with high quality double-lip oil seals and using an ISO class external bearing locknut system.

Large Bearing Support

Blade Mount

To secure slasher blades to the blade assembly, Baumalight uses Gr. 8 bolts capped off with castle nuts and cotter pins.

Blade Mount

3-Way Model

Designed for easy service, the 3-Way models feature a heavy duty rotor with 3 fixed extensions. Each extension is finished off with a slasher blade. This configuration is capable of providing 75–100 slashes per second.

Taking back your property can be a rough job. We designed and built the deck as a solid platform to take on the task. Built from rugged 1/4 inch steel and then further reinforced with support channels it’s a solid base of operations.
