    Man I like that mulcher. I sure wish I could put a deal together on one. The mixed teeth would be great. You could put in the asphalt teeth for rock and the chipper teeth for no rock conditions.

    my 272c had the door cut out replaced by perforated plate for the mulching package.


    a tallow tree isn't much a challenge for any mulcher. it is a very, very soft wooded tree not native to texas but we have them.

    I made short work of a pine tree that was similar diamater too. The tallows are soft and one of the easier trees to mulch but it was still a decent sized tree. Soft or not from what I have seen not to many mulchers for skid steers would be able to much that tree down as fast as the Tushhogg.

    Was that Michael from Tushogg running the camera. I am sure I recognize that Texas drawl.

    Okay fellas, I watched and held off as long as I could. I do not knock any head manufacturer. To even try in this market takes some #$lls. But if you were impressed with that I would like you to watch a few vidoe's. YOUTUBE Denis Cimaf.
    Yes I know and agree our heads are not for everyone or environment. But I can show you how to run our head, pickup eveything off the ground WITHOUT touching the ground. Better end product and less ground disturbance. Most of our reps are operators and we can backup our statements!

    I was wondering how long it would take for you to come out of hiding my friend! :)

    I ran a tushhogg for about 3 years. I wouldn't say it's faster than the magnum or FAE head. Don't know much about the Denis Cimaf other than the similar gyro trak isn't recommended for where I work (rocky ground). Each head has it's place. I've worked an FAE and Magnum side by side on the same machine. Both performed about the same. The tushhogg had more torque than the rest but it wasn't like "eureka". One thing I did notice about the Tushhogg was that the rear wall mini teeth need to be in place. I saw a few units with no teeth on the back. That means the counter-cut and shred mechanism isn't working right. If those are in place, you can get a better product quicker.

    I just looked up a couple videos of the Denis Cimaf head. I woudnt mind seeing one in person. It would be interesting to see some pictues of the head up close and maybe a clear shot of the knives.
