Morbark is debuting the new Rayco T415 Forestry Machine.
Designed for land-clearing companies, construction companies, pipeline contractors, utility contractors and real estate developers, the T415 allows customers to change between a Predator forestry mower/mulcher head and a Hydra Stumper stump cutter attachment.
“The T415 forestry machine is designed for large-scale land-clearing contractors,” said J.R. Bowling, Rayco Manufacturing’s mulcher specialist. “It’s a lot of cutting power in a very nimble package.”
Powered by a 415 hp Cat C9.3B Diesel Tier 4 Final engine, the T415 boasts a closed-loop hydrostatic system to power the mulcher or cutter head, sending 530 litres per min to the attachment’s drive motors.
The hydraulic output is power-optimized to match the engine’s power curve, keeping the mulcher or stumper rpm constant, even under load for a finer mulched product with fewer passes.
As the engine rpm pulls down under load, pump displacement increases to maintain the 530 litres per minute flow. The operator feels more power at the cutter head over a broader engine rpm band.
Predator mulcher head
For mowing/mulching applications, the Predator mulcher head has a 232-cm cutting width, and is powered by a pair of variable displacement drive motors.
The Predator mulcher head is equipped with 49 single-bolt teeth, including end teeth with extra carbide to power through anything its way. The mulching head also has a synchronous drive belt for low maintenance and long wear life and slotted mounting lugs to follow terrain with minimal machine stress. A manually adjustable tree catcher and hydraulic debris flap is standard.
The Hydra Stumper head muscles through stumps with its 122-cm diameter by 7.6 cm thick cutter wheel equipped with 56 Monster Tooth cutter tools. The cutting range reaches 2.74 metres wide, 2.69 metres high and 117 cm deep.
