Eterra Cyclone 48" Excavator Rotary Brush Cutter

The Eterra CC-48 Brush Cutter for mini or full size excavators and other boom applications is ideal for clearing brush from road sides, driveways, ditches, and much more. The Eterra SMB-1000 Blank Mounting Adapter is included with your purchase.

Designed for excavators from 8,500 lbs. to 20,000 lbs. The Cyclone CC-48 operates efficiently on hydraulic flows from 15 - 40 GPM.

With cutting capacities up to 6 inch material, this mower can take anything you throw at it. At 600 lbs. without a mount, the CC-48 is strong enough for the toughest projects. A lot of effort has gone into using the right materials to make this mower lighter than other mowers in it's class to reduce your swing weight and keep you cutting in all conditions. Not just level and flat. With the lower weight and tough construction, you can easily work side hills and not fear that you might tip your machine over. Don't worry, Eterra still uses top quality materials and the finest design to ensure you have a mower that will last and last. Skid Steer Solutions backs this up with with a no hassle, 1 year warranty.

It is not very often that a new product introduction is met with so much fan fare. Customers have been anxiously waiting for this product to arrive and it is finally here. Why is it so important? Eterra has a reputation for building the strongest and highest quality flail and sickle bar mowers found anywhere. They have been asked to build a rotary style mower for many years. Customers have waited because they are aware that anything less than what they offer is sure to be a let down; so they have been patient while the Eterra Attachments company designed and built the most forward thinking rotary mower of it's kind.

Eterra SMB-1000 Blank Mounting Adapter

This adapter provides Eterra Mowers with seamless mounting to your Excavator's coupler. The SMB-1000 is included with purchase.


The Cyclone uses removable gates on the front and rear of the cutter so you can remove them for heavy brush clearing when you need to but still easily install them when you are in areas that you want to minimize the amount of material being ejected from the cutter. Eterra is the only manufacturer that we know of that does this.

All of the drive systems that you will find in Eterra mowing or clearing products have been proven to be strong and reliable. They use dual 8 pound blades, which are some of the heaviest in the industry, coupled with premium Permco USA motors. The 1" thick T1 blade bar design allows for heavy use, dynamic balancing and still some mulching capability. Most of the competitors models use a brush hog style blade which is just a small grass cutting knife. It is not a chopping blade meant for heavy material. Eterra's welding and machining is exceptional. Fit and function - Outstanding! This is a product designed to be sold on the world market that puts the pride back into Made in America. With the compact rotary design, you will be able to access the smallest of properties and mow heavy brush, berry bushes and grass. The Cyclone CC-48 is built from lightweight and strong materials. The blade bar and blades are electronically balanced for the most efficient operation and longest operating life in it's class. If you are looking for the best in show, then Eterra mowers have it hands down.

Note: Due to the high speed and pressures involved on the higher flow machines, a case drain line may be required to operate this brush cutter. A case drain is a low pressure line that travels from the mower head back to your oil reservoir. It allows pressure to be directed away from the motor seals and back to your oil tank. This increases your seal and motor life substantially. Check with your dealer as some newer machines including Yanmar have a return to tank setting which makes a case drain unnecessary.

The Eterra Cutter System

Eterra mowers use a direct drive spindle hub which is the same hub used on the Typhoon full size mower. Eterra does this to insure maximum impact strength when clearing heavy material. To Eterra, operator safety means everything, and they never want to see a drive system come apart and injure you or anyone else. Eterra takes the safety of their mowers to another level by insisting all of the steel, machining and drive systems are USA built locally in Washington sate. This costs more but ensures a tough mower that will not fail and become a hazard. Eterra is the only companies that we know of that electronically balances their cutter bars to the blades so when it is operating, the silence and smooth sounds of blades cutting the air is all that is audible. No shaking from side to side or up and down. This is just another step that Eterra adds to make their mowers much better than the other guys. Eterra's goal is to produce the best possible product and deliver it to you in the most economical manner.

Note: Every excavator is different. 

Many machines (Especially older models) use only two pumps. One to control your stick and rotation. One for track drive and auxilliary flow (your mower). For machines that have this type of pump arrangement, it is not possible to drive the machine forward and cut at the same time. You will need to drive forward, stop and then sweep back and forth for cutting. For operators with newer machines like Kubota and any Yanmar, you have three pumps so you can drive and cut at the same time.

A Message from the Owner of Eterra

"Why are we less expensive than the other guys? It's simple. All Eterra products are produced in high volumes directly in our facilities in Bellingham, Washington and sold directly on the web. We do not start building these one at a time when you place your order. We also do not use dealers. The other guys add 25 - 40% to allow dealers to sell their mowers. That is not how we do business. We believe the best way to sell our products is directly with to our customers. We sell it, and we support it. This means you save serious money by dealing directly. 

Something else to note about our competitors.  Many of them make comparisons to our mowers that theirs are heavier.  If you know anything about these mowers, that makes no sense.  We design for maximum strength for the machine weights specified so that you get an effective mower that won't flip your machine.  If we knew nothing about design, we could just add steel and call it a day, but that would short change our customers.  Adding steel does not make a good mower.  It adds unnecessary weight that can endanger the operator.  Others are now using a metal spring disk as a dampener where we use a water jet cut rubber disk.  We have 15 years experience with this design and not one failure or replacement due to wear.  Our system is proven to last and is lighter and quieter.  We are waiting to see how long it will be before they have to change their design as their mowers are just too heavy, use a higher parts count, operate more noisily, and the replacement disks cost $1400 where if you ever needed one ouf ours, they are less than $100.  Good design always wins. If you want good design, buy Eterra.  If you want weight and un-necessary parts, then buy theirs.

Our competitors are struggling with us in the market so they will say anything to you about our mowers just so they can take the sale, so here is one more thing to add. We offer a no nonsense warranty. 1 year, full replacement with no questions asked. If it fails, we take care of it. We have a full parts selection in stock. No one else will offer you this. They always make you send the unit back for testing which will cost you serious down time when you need the equipment to be working most. We don't operate like that and never will."
