SIOUX FALLS, SD – Diamond Mowers LLC recently introduced the addition of a 72-inch skid-steer drum mulcher.
A new addition to Diamond’s attachment product line, the skid-steer drum mulcher is design for heavy mulching and brush clearing applications. It uses a two-speed variable displacement piston motor, 41 hardened steel teeth and has a total attachment depth comparable to a loader bucket for easy operation and better visibility.
“We’ve been working on building a better drum mulcher for more than two years. We listened to customer feedback to really understand the current challenges before designing Diamond’s drum. We were able to integrate a number of features that will benefit the operator while also increasing the attachment’s productivity,” said Dave Ver Steeg, director of engineering.
In April 2018, Diamond acquired the rights to utilize patents held by Denis Cimaf Inc. for a depth control ring and a replaceable liner. The depth control ring allows the operator to better control depth of cut, and the replaceable liner increases the shell lifespan.
“Our customers have been asking for a drum mulcher from Diamond since we entered the brush cutting and mulching market, but we wanted to get it right,” said Tim Kubista, vice president of sales and marketing. “We have a reputation of building the most productive and durable products in the market, and our first priority is to stay true to that character.”
Diamond Mowers’ skid-steer drum mulcher will be distributed through a contracted dealer network, comprised of more than 350 locations throughout the United States, Canada, Brazil and Australia.
