The Eterra Cutter Shaft

The Cutter Shaft of the EX-30 Flail Mower has been electronically balanced, a process that leads to a fully efficient mower, one that resists inefficient vibration or energy loss. This means operators will enjoy maximum efficiency while mowing, and a longer operating life, even when put to heavy use. 

The Eterra Cutter Shaft also features 6" DOM (Drawn Over Mandrel) Tubing, leading to extreme strength and durability. The DOM process imparts significantly improved mechanical properties to the cutter shaft tube, and a superior strength weld. This process is a prime example of Eterra's commitment to quality, apparent in all of their attachments and mowers, especially the EX-30 and EX Series.

EX-30 Flail Mower: New Video Transcript

Hi, Rob here with Eterra, and I'm here with the EX-30 Flail Mower for Compact Excavators.

This is part of a full line of Excavator Flail Mowers that we manufacture, including the EX-30 Micro, the EX-30, the EX-40, and the EX-50. 

The EX-30 is a lot of power in a compact package. This allows the operator to swing at full extension, without the worry of tipping the machine over.

It features a direct drive system, which is the most efficient system available. It puts all of the power directly onto the cutter shaft.

The EX Series of mower from Eterra are designed and manufactured in the USA. The EX-30 uses only the finest American-Made materials.

When running a flail mower, such as the EX-30, you want to make sure that the machine is properly set-up for the task. 

We're using a ViO Series from Yanmar, and what we have here is a dual-hose system. We've got couplers set-up in such a way that they can't come off very easily, you know if we hit a branch or something. And we have a one-way valve set-up. So what happens is the pressure comes in, and the return line goes right back to tank and through the cooling system. 

The ViO Series from Yanmar meets all the requirements that we need to run this mower successfully. 

The Eterra EX-30 Flail Mower is one of the finest flail mowers you can find on the marketplace today.
