Description

Woods DS8.50W Dual Spindle Slasher

The Woods Dual Spindle Slasher Series ranges from an 8ft cut to a 12ft cut and suits tractors with a PTO HP range between 35hp and 205hp. Cutting capacities range from 38mm diameter material to 75mm diameter material. All sizes of dual spindle slashers come in a standard duty and a heavy duty series. All models are available with a side throw option. The offset series (DSO8.50/DSO10.50) have the following hydraulic variable offset:

 

8.50 = 530mm right, 125mm left

10.50 = 685mm right, 125mm left

 

All models come with tail wheels. The 30 and 40 series of Woods Dual Spindle Slashers have 100mm x 400mm laminated tail wheels, with a bushed axel that can be height adjusted. The 50 series have a 125mm x 400mm laminated tail wheel. All drawbar (DS models) slashers have a 25.5 x 8-14 foam filled 20ply ag tyre which are hydraulically height adjustable. The width of the wheels is also adjustable. The 50 series also feature a spring to absorb any load shock from the tail wheels.

 

Why a Woods Dual Spindle Slasher

Woods Dual Spindle Slashers have a comparable output to a flail mower or mulcher with the benefit of considerably reduced maintenance and running costs. There is a higher volume of work able to be completed with a smaller HP tractor as the cutting width is up to 50% more on a dual spindle compared to a single spindle.

SAFETY FIRST

 

OH&S Features unique to Woods slashers
Change blades from above the machine: no risk to operators or maintenance crews of having to get under slasher to change the blades. Slasher does not need to be on stands
Quick Change Blade System removes labour and material to change blades: only light hand tools required to change blades. No oxy or grinding risk
Will not leave a windrow: superior material discharge management as material will be spread evenly across the back of the slasher limiting risk to plant and personnel
38mm blade pin: is 4x stronger than the standard 3/4” bolt on standard slasher. A 3/4” bolt is more likely to wear through and throw blades
Tip Speed is not excessive: Woods tip speed is efficient for design of slasher. Excessive tip speed is not tolerant to hitting objects increasing chances of breaking/throwing blades

 

EFFICIENCY

 

Operating and R&M Cost Efficiency
Full structural sub frame increases integrity of slasher making it more durable than other slashers and fitting for our Australian conditions
Machined gearbox hubs and tight tolerance steel shield will prevent any material affecting lower gearbox seal ensuring long life out of gearbox with no oil leaks
Driveline hanger will prevent dirt and water affecting shaft when removed from tractor
38mm blade pin is 4x stronger than standard blade bolt so is slower wearing than others
Quick change blade pin system allows operators to change blades within 5 minutes with light hand tools. Can be completed roadside reducing downtime of machines
Stump jumper allows for less shocks to gearbox and blades can spin 360° upon impact compare to a beam where large shocks emitted to gearbox and blades can become wedged in beam
Large deck clearance allows for large volume of material to be cut without choking and uses less HP and fuel
