Specialized Denis Cimaf Technicians are also available to customers, upon request, to supervise attachment installation and to make any necessary technical adjustments to ensure optimal operation.

.

Mulcher Attachment Feature: Rotor

Each Denis Cimaf Skid Steer Mulcher is loaded with an industrial quality rotor, the most important component of the entire attachment. The Denis Cimaf rotor design results in a lighter part than found on comparable attachments. This lightweight allows the Denis Cimaf rotor to increase and improve mulching speed and rotation, leading a faster, more effective mulching tool that doesn't compromise on quality. 

.

Denis Cimaf Mulcher Part: Rotor

.

The Mulcher Rotor is essential to mulching operations, as it controls the speed of the knives, as well as the depth and aggression of the mulcher bite. A properly configured rotor will clear material effectively, as well as direct the material flow efficiently to maximize the energy transfer from machine to attachment. This Mulcher Attachment rotor is an excellent example of the advantage gained from premium Denis Cimaf components.

.

Mulcher Attachment Feature: Knives

The steel knives that come standard with Denis Cimaf Muclhers are extremely strong and also easy to replace. The cutting heads are attached to the knife holder with a single nut and bolt, making knife replacement very quick and easy. Denis Cimaf Mulching Knives feature a tenon-in-mortise design that reduces the stress applied to the bolt, which increases the life of the whole system.

Denis Cimaf knife blades are manufactured impact resistant, abrasion resistant, and cold resistant, meaning they are designed to perform in all conditions. Made of forged, hardened steel, these knives are heat-treated several times throughout the manufacturing process, resulting in a strong and reliable tool that provides incredible mulching power.

All Denis Cimaf Knives undergo rigorous Impact Pendulum Testing to ensure maximum steel integrity and strength. Designed to perform with an optimal cutting angle, each Denis Cimaf Mulcher comes standard with a spare set of blades, a knife angle gauge, as well as a motorized blade sharpener that will keep your knives sharp and effective day-in and day-out. Check out the video below for a full overview of what these Knives have to offer.

Mulcher Attachment Feature: Engine and Belt

The Denis Cimaf mulcher engine in all front-mounted skid steer DAF models consists of a powerful and reliable hydraulic axial piston and variable cylinder motor. This sophisticated design limits overheating, which prevents damage and operational issues under heavy application. This set-up also allows for rapid re-acceleration of the mulcher head after pausing operation or transporting to a new work area.

.

The robust transmission belt of the mulcher attachment is notched, and transmits all the engine power to the rotor without the risk of skidding or slippage. These two key components combine to give machine operators consistent, reliable mulching power than can be relied upon. 

.

Mulcher Attachment Feature: Wear Liner and Skid-Plates

You're going to put your Skid Steer Mulcher to the test, and Denis Cimaf knows this. Designed for heavy application and heavy speeds, it's no surprise that the attachment has wear parts that need to be paid attention to. Denis Cimaf has considered this, and includes a replaceable wear liner and skid-plates with every unit. The replaceable wear liner limits the wear of the casing of the attachment, especially in the inner part of the mulcher where the rotor is housed. It is easily removed and replaced with a simple set of bolts and you can find this part from either Denis Cimaf or Skid Steer Solutions.

The same goes for the skid-plates of the mulcher. These plates come in contact with the ground during heavy mulching and protect the case of the machine and limit serious damage. Only three bolts are required to secure the skid-plates, making them very fast and simple to replace once the have completed their protection of the greater attachment whole.

.

Hydraulic Push-bar Option for Mulcher Model DAF-180E

For the larger skid steer model, the DAF-180E, Denis Cimaf offers an hydraulic push-bar option. Utilizing the hydraulics of your machine, this push-bar allows for strategic application of force to falling trees, without tearing up or impacting the ground below your machine. This option can be added to the order of a DAF-180E, please give us a call at 1-866-966-2538 to discuss pricing and attachment electrical control details.

.

Denis Cimaf Mulcher Hydraulic Pushbar Option

.

When clearing larger or older vegetation areas, it's common for operators to encounter larger trees that need to be removed. The safest and most time-tested method involves grinding and mulching down about half of the base of the tree's stump, then pushing the with the attachment and the machine until the full tree breaks and falls. With this hydraulic push-bar, you'll be able to more precisely control the fall of the tree, and also increase the space between your machine and the falling tree. From there, utilize your powerful mulcher attachment to take care of the remaining stump and now land-based tree.

.
