Digga Slasha slasher attachment Mahindra 6060 utility tractor
With many areas of Australia set for above-normal bushfire risks this season, Digga is highlighting the need for slashing and clearing grasslands and low-level shrubbery.
“While back-burning is the preferred method of bushfire prevention, it is not always possible and reducing the fuel for fire is critical in helping keep communities safe, making bushfires easier to control and helping to prevent the spread to residential areas,” the company says.
Digga Australia has a range of forestry and vegetation management attachments, starting with the Digga Slasha, which is a slasher made for smaller property maintenance, clearing scrub, tidying fence lines, general landscaping, roadway maintenance and parks maintenance.
The slasher is available to suit mini loaders, skid steers, excavators and tractors, and comes in three width options.
Its features include: a chain curtain to supress debris; a height-adjustable rounded side skids for smoother manoeuvrability over uneven terrain; a twinblade, dual-rotation single cutting bar; and hoses and couplers.
Digga’s more ‘serious’ land maintenance attachments include mulchers, stick rakes, flail mowers and rotary axes for skid steer loaders and excavators. n Digga is giving away a free set of replacement blades with every Slasha bought in October 2017 (T&Cs apply). See www.digga.com
