Turbo Mulcher

Mow + Mulch + Site Prep

Overview

The Turbo Mulcher has been designed from the ground up for forestry mowing. The Spiral Saw Drum can cut grass and weeds as well as produce fine mulch when cutting trees or logs. Ground contact is no problem if site prepping is desired and the carbide cutting teeth do not have to be sharpened in the field. The frame has a unique hybrid mower/mulcher deck with integrated safety curtains to give operators confidence even when cutting near structures or vehicles.

Hose Routing

By integrating the hose routing as close to the carriers tilt pivot as possible, the Turbo Mulchers keeps the exterior hoses tucked away safely behind the attachment. Providing maximum articulation with minimal hose length, and virtually eliminating hose wear. 

Better Quality Finish Material

With a minimal initial bite as well as secondary material reduction process made possible with exclusive Spiral-Saw Drum; The Turbo Mulcher produces better quality mulch that composts at a much faster rate.                                          

Trees, Brush, and Grass: A true 76” cutting width along 76 carbide cutting teeth gives the Turbo Mulcher the ability to easily mow a path through a variety of materials, its heavy duty deck forward frame allows operators to fell and mulch up to 5” trees without ever leaving the mowing position.

Safety by Design

The Turbo Mulcher features a patent pending Spiral-Saw drum that reaches peak efficiency at only 1,700 rpms; producing improved cutting and mulching speeds without increasing the drum RPM’s to unsafe levels.  By combining low operating RPM’s with full front and rear safety curtains, the Turbo Mulcher achieves a staggering 98% reduction in thrown debris compared to conventional mulching attachment. Allowing the Turbo Mulcher to be operated in areas traditional mulchers can’t.

Durable Frame

The TM76 features an innovative modular steel framework, designed produces exceptional strength. Operators can use the entire forward portion of the deck as an integrated pushing point while at the same time greatly reducing the time and effort required to conduct routine maintenance with the use of bolt-on wear items; additionally through this designed approach DFM has incorporated steel covers, which safely house all major componentry beneath a protective skin, streamlining the attachments profile,  and eliminating  areas  of the frame where material can collect .

30% Larger Bearings

The main bearing is on the drivetrain is 30% larger than any other mulcher in this category. It is designed to withstand any axial or radial loads directed to the attachment and the housing is sealed to protect the bearing from the harsh operating environment.  Lubrication is the key to maximum bearing life so the grease line and zerk is routed to a convenient location.  A grease pressure valve maintains optimum lubrication at all times and prevents an operator from over greasing. The main bearing housing is machined from high strength billet steel.

Ease of Use

Featuring faster spool-up times and a forgiving torque curve The Turbo Mulcher ensures consistent mulching rates regardless of skill level, it further aids the operator with a standard quick reference RPM gauge.

Spiral-Saw Drum

The Turbo Mulcher's patent pending spiral-saw drum, incorporates DFM’s exclusive rapid recovery drum technology. Featuring 76 high impact carbide teeth, and a patent pending spiral design that laterally chews and splits material; the turbo mulcher uses the natural fiber fragmentation tendencies of wood to increase mulching speeds, while reducing carrier horsepower requirements by 63%.
