Reliable Performance

  • Cut trees up to 152 mm (6 in) in diameter with the HM2615 and up to 305 mm (12 in) with the HM4015
  • Two rotor types:
    • Standard – rotor with teeth only
    • Bite limiter – rotor with teeth separated by ribs to create more finely shredded materials
  • Variable torque hydraulic piston motor (HM2615: 60 cc, HM4015: 110 cc) can be adjusted to maximize machine and mulcher performance
  • Brackets allow the mulchers to be mounted on different excavators:
    • HM2615 – 11-17 ton tracked excavators, 11-17 ton wheeled excavators
    • HM4015 – 18-23 ton tracked and wheeled excavators
  • The staggered tooth design reduces stalling and jamming
  • Hardened and forged counter-blades reduce material size before entering the mulching chamber and increase working life of the mulcher

Easy Maintenance

  • Access internal components quickly and easily with bolt-on service panels
  • Poly Chain Belt driven transmission enables smooth startup
  • Multiple tooth options available for order
  • The motor is integrated into the frame to protect it from dust impact
  • Protect the bolts that allow internal access from debris with a recessed design into the panel
  • Get back to work faster with field-replaceable wear parts

Prioritized Safety

  • Hydraulic Mulching door keeps the work environment and equipment safe by dispersing materials according to your application and surroundings
  • The mulching door can be controlled from the cab by a medium pressure or electronic kit:
    • Door closed – right of way clearing, near power lines and pipelines, and roadside maintenance
    • Door open – vegetation management, job site clearing, forest wood fuel removal, and firebreaks
  • Flow control valve protects the motor from excessive flow
  • Ground level primary grease points keep you safe while performing daily maintenance
  • Reduce scatter with bolt-on, replaceable chains and skids
