Features and Benefits of the New BB Series Slashers

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.

GREAT FARMERS DESERVE GREAT DURABLE SAFE MACHINERY

Our top six exclusive features on a Woods slasher that differentiates itself from other slashers in the market:

  1. Exclusive ‘Quick Change’ blade pin system–change blades within minutes with light hand tools with no need to use an oxy! The Woods Equipment slasher blade pin is 38mm (1.5”)rather than the standard 19mm on other slashers.
  2. Woods are the only slashers with a greaseable blade pin–increases longevity of your blade and reduces repairs and maintenance costs of your machine.
  3. A hatch in the slasher deck allows the operator to change blades from above the machine–no need to increase OH & S risks and downtime by having to get under the slasher to change the blades. Blades can be changed in the paddock within a couple of minutes thanks to the ‘Quick Change’ blade pin system.
  4. They do not leave a windrow, distributing the product similar to the way a mulcher does thanks to the unique rounded back allowing your paddocks to mulch evenly for increased productivity and improved pasture management.
  5. The stump jumper disk protects the carrier unlike beams on other brands of slashers. This allows the operator to glide over objects in the paddock when slashing with ease with reduced risk of damage to slasher, and more importantly, to the tractor reducing the repair and maintenance cost of your machinery.
  6. Woods Equipment slashers and implements are manufactured in the USA from American steel–these are robust products that are built to last. The gearbox has a six-year warranty in Australia.

Safety First

The safest slashers on the market!

Woods Slashers are the safest slashers on the Australian market. A unique design, exclusive to the Woods slashers, of a large access window on top of the slasher deck allows the operator to change the blades from above the slasher without the need of having to get under the slasher to access the blades.

The Quick-Change Blade System, exclusive to Woods Slashers, allows for easy changing of blades from the top of the deck within a couple of minutes. The operator can efficiently change blades from on top of the slasher with light hand spanners. No risk involved.

I’ve reduced my slashing time in half, from 30 hours to 15 hours a week. Even when slashing in heavy material nothing is left behind, giving my orchard a mower finish and nicely discharging material under my trees. Woods are well built machines.
