Hedge Cutter

The MJ39 Hedge Cutter head produces a clean presentation on hedgerows, shrubs and verges at fast forward speeds thanks to the impressive ‘blender-style’ mulching capabilities of the rotary head. The gearbox driveline powers twin rotors and eight overlapping blades to deliver a tidy finish when thinning material or clearing dense brush, all in one pass.

The hydraulic motor is fitted with an overrun clutch, protecting the hydraulic system when the motor stops. The 1.43m heavy duty deck really shines turning overgrown hedges and scrubby areas into manageable structures for landscape control.

The MAJOR Hedge Cutter outperforms flail head systems in both productivity and maintenance. With less wearing parts, the MJ39 is a durable and reliable attachment for contractors, councils and operators demanding minimal downtime and total cost of ownership.

The full-length roller controls the cutting height between 40mm – 100mm for verge work and can be moved up and away for hedge cutting. An adjustable front hood, hydraulically or manually enabled, controls the amount of material entering the cutting chamber. Deep deck sides ensure mulch is retained in the hedgerow.

The main components are made of Strenx® 700MC structural steel which reduces the weight of the unit without compromising on strength. Hardox® skids ensure abrasion resistance while moving easily through uneven terrain.

Designed for performance and built for resilience, the MAJOR Hedge Cutter is the preferred replacement head for the most intense jobs. The MJ39 MAJOR Hedge Cutter fits booms on 360 excavators in the 10-14 tonne range, which suits most standard full-featured excavators available on the market.
