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.

A SLASHER is not just a slasher

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.
  • Greaseable blade pins ensure long life of blades and pins lowering R&M costs.
  • 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.
