Ideal for land clearing, vegetation management, and utility or roadside maintenance, a drum mulcher serves a variety of needs. These attachments solve a variety of problems, such as maintaining an agricultural property, mitigating the spread of invasive species, infrastructure development, and right-of-way clearing. Drum mulchers get their name from their cylindrical, drum-like shape. These lean, heavy-duty mulchers attach to skid-steers and shred small trees and brush with a forward spinning motion – a quality that makes them great options for quick brush and undergrowth removal.

Also known as tree borers, wood borers feed on and make habitats from trees and other woody plants. They belong to a variety of insect groups, including beetles, wasps, and moths, and are often the larva of these species.
If you have recently used a mulcher attachment to clear a significant amount of brush or trees from a piece of property, you likely have an abundance of fresh wood chips on your hands. While it is possible to recycle or otherwise dispose of the chips, that isn't the only option. Whether you've finished a large-scale public land project or have cleared away unwanted brush on your own property, there are several possible uses for the resulting wood chips to consider.
In Oklahoma, Texas, and Kansas, the eastern red-cedar (Juniperus virginiana L.) has substantially reduced livestock production and profitability by 75% in the rangelands it invades.
Originally limited to rocky bluffs and other areas where fire couldn't reach them, eastern red-cedar tree populations expanded with the introduction of European land management practices to the United States. A decrease in controlled burns allowed forests to spread, including this now-invasive species. It extended from its native Kansas to nearby states, where it overtakes prairie plant life.
There are two types of wheel-based stump grinders commonly available as skid steer attachments. It's important to have the right stump grinder for your application, operating techniques for optimal productivity and safety, and maintenance best practice to ensure your equipment gives you a long and profitable life.
Most people think all mower attachments are the same, but that couldn't be further from the truth.
