Key Features & Specs

  • Designed for extreme-duty applications, the Extreme Duty Rotary Cutter excels at clearing medium to heavy brush and hardwoods up to 18 cm (7 in.) in diameter.
  • Direct drivetrain contains no gearbox, for improved performance, durability, and reliability.
  • Four alternating bevel blades are made of 19.1 mm (0.75 in.)-thick high-grade steel in a reversible design, to provide a deep, self-clearing cut and long wear life.
  • Standard pressure gauge is highly visible, allowing easy monitoring of blade load to prevent both overheating and overloading.

  • Retractable forward shield moves up and away from the tree to expose entire cutting edge while protecting the operator from flying debris.
  • Overall height: 715 mm (28 in.)
  • Overall length: 2174 mm (86 in.)
  • Overall width: 1965 mm (77 in.)

Like all Worksite Pro attachments, the Extreme Duty Rotary Cutter is optimized to work with select John Deere E- and D-Series Skid Steers and Compact Track Loaders (CTLs). It is also compatible with most comparable competitive models.

B-Series Rotary Cutters offer a redesigned drivetrain to improve performance, efficiency, and reliability. The cutter's rigid 6-mm (0.25 in.) steel deck, formed side plates, and heavy-duty skid shoes provide solid strength and durability in both forward and reverse. The triple bi-directional blade design provides better balance for smooth operation and increased cutting efficiency. An optional pressure gauge allows you to monitor blade load to prevent overheating and overloading, to keep you running safely and productively. The optional under-mounted front steel wheels cut evenly and add life to the cutting blades by keeping them off the ground and preventing scalping.


Like all Worksite Pro™ attachments, these rotary cutters are optimized to work with John Deere skid steers and compact track loaders. In addition, they're compatible with most comparable competitive models. See your local John Deere dealer for details.
