When buying a skid steer brush cutter attachment one of the things to consider is the cutting blade. You will find that brush cutters vary in the number of blades they are equipped with. Most brush cutters have 2, 3 or 4 cutting blades. The more blades your brush cutter has, the cleaner the cut and the better the mulching capability. There are single edge and duel-edge brush cutter blades available. Dual-edge cutting blades will give you more bang for your buck as they can be reversed thus extending the life of the blade. Another blade feature some skid steer brush cutters have is swing away blades that will give if they hit an immovable object such as a bolder, this will help prevent unnecessary damage to the brush cutter. You can find brush cutter blades that are made of ¼” steel; however there are brush cutters that come equipped with ½” and ¾” steel that is more durable and can withstand tougher cutting conditions. Often times you will find blades that are made of high-carbon steel which gives you a harder blade.
While not required, it is recommended that you use replacement blades manufactured for your particular brush cutter as mounting options and blade accommodation can differ between brand and model. If you have to replace one blade, make sure the replacement is the same size and thickness as the blades that are not being replaced. A bad fitting or mismatched blade can affect your brush cutters performance and possibly damage the unit.
