44 Compact Equipment NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2018 Loftness Bad Ax Loftness already earns kudos for one of the best brand names in the attachment business. Its new Bad Ax mulcher for skid steers and track loaders also lives up to that name. First, it has dual recut- ter bars, so it can cut material into finer particles for faster decom- position. The recutter bar also helps avoid log jams in the chamber, which can be extremely difficult to remove. The rigid deflector pro- vides better control of the discharge than hinged deflectors. The Bad Ax also has a fully machined disc that contains no welds, so no stress cracking. That disc has bolt-on cutting tooth mounts that can be replaced in the field.

Engcon's new SK02 Mini Sorting Grab gives small excavator operators even more dexterity. A leading manufacturer of til- trotators, Engcon designed the SK02 to tilt, turn and rotate with a maxi- mum grab strength of 281 lbs of force. The unit weighs 240 lbs, making it particularly suited for small excavators in the 1.5- to 3-metric-ton class. The SK02 also has screwed cutting blades, can take digging teeth and can be delivered with sealed/tight sides for use as a clamshell bucket. For more info, visit engcon.com. Cat Side Discharge Buckets Unloading a bucket just got a whole lot easier. Caterpillar's Side Discharge Buckets, designed for skid steers, track loaders and com- pact wheel loaders, collect and transport loose materials such as sawdust, sand, mulch and topsoil and then discharge these materi- als via a belt-type conveyor from adjustable openings (doors) on either side of the bucket. A rotating agitator works to keep mate- rial flowing to the conveyor. Adjusting conveyor speed and door opening controls the volume of material discharged and the area covered. Markets range from agriculture to road maintenance. For more info, visit cat.com. Danuser Python Wire Winder This might be one of the ultimate niche attachments. Danuser's Python Wire Winder connects to a customer's existing hydraulic auger drive, with 2-in. hex connection. Once installed, operators can place the fence wire strands in the slots, push the spike into the ground and turn on the auger drive to start wrapping. Once the wire is wrapped up, it can be removed by pulling a pin and separating the two Python halves. The Python is designed to ac- cept two tie wires to keep the wire neatly coiled up until it's time to be reused. It holds up to three-quarter mile of barbed wire (12.5 gauge) or up to six miles of smooth wire (14 gauge). For more info, visit danuser.com.
