PRINOTH launches a light, efficient and flexible mulching head for skid steer loaders
14 November 2018
PRINOTH is well known for its crawler carriers but also manufactures a wide range of mulching equipment. Through its Vegetation Management. Division, and as a cutting-edge company, where the latest developments and innovations in agriculture and forest management are the top priority, PRINOTH continuously invests in developing high quality products including the introduction of its newest mulching head model, the M450s.
Developed for a range of carrier vehicles from 80-150 HP and a volume flow between 26.4-52.8 gpm (100-200 l/min), the M450s is a compact and powerful head for a diversity of mulching applications. With the feature “Plug and Mulch”, the M450s is ready for simple implementing on any skid steer loader make and model. Hydraulic hoses with standard fittings are included in the package and already delivered from factory. The M450s gets its enormous power from a 107 cc Rexroth hydraulic motor with high-pressure variable displacement. A new-cogged belt drive transfers it to the rotor.
Bite Control System
The rotor combines the BCS (Bite Control System) with two types of cutting tools. Whether steel knives- or carbide teeth, the BCS-Rotor is best balanced for less wear on bearings and high speed, meaning high productivity and perfect finishing. With the well-tried BCS-Rotor System and its cutting tools, the operator will not only get a professional working result, but also a pleasurable working experience. Furthermore, it guarantees a perfect visibility to the ground for a good and safe line of site to the working area and the machine. The point of gravity is close to the carrier, therefore, it is easier to handle and provides less tipping or roll over danger. For maximum safety, the M450s is equipped with anti-slippery stripes on the top of the housing and with two steps for a safe access to the carrier. PRINOTH achieved an entirely new development, which enlarges its mulcher range for skid steer loaders and hydraulic driven carriers. The new M450s will first be launched in North America.
