Gilbert Canada have released their new GM Series of grader-mowers, brush cutter heads that attach to the side of a grader for roadside maintenance.This head is well suited to forestry and municipal roads. The patented concept cuts vegetation as opposed to mulching it.
This is a more productive operation with speeds four times faster than other application and 10 times lower operating costs. This allows the user to cover more mileage with the same or even less budget.
The GM-10 model has a cutting width of 8.5 ft (2.6 m) using five saw blades. It can cut stems up to 8 inch (20 cm) diameter at an average travel speed of 6 km per hour. Since the graders are often under-utilized, the head can be installed on most graders using the standard hydraulic and fixing points for easy fitment and removal. The power needs of the GM-10 are easily provided by the grader without affecting its performance.
The GM Series is available in various cutting sizes with several options. Fast and productive, this is the ideal solution for roadside maintenance.
