The types of mulchers include mounted, offset, self-propelled and walk-behind. Although less common, walk-behind mulchers can be a great choice for narrow or difficult-to-reach places including uncultivated land, roadsides, undergrowth, sloping ground and terraces.
Self-propelled mulchers can run at a speed of up to 10 km/h and have excellent traction. They’re often used for forestry applications where there is a frequent need for significant power and agility, making this kind of mulcher practical for difficult terrain with a slope of up to 50%.
Mounted mulchers are placed on traction equipment such as a tractor. You’ll need to choose a tractor, for example, with a motor power that’s able to handle the diameter of what you’re shredding. To cut an object with a width of less than 120 cm, you will need a machine with 18 to 40 HP. For a width greater than 170 cm, you must use a machine with power between 35 HP and 65 HP.
Offset mulchers are mounted on an articulated hydraulic arm which is attached to the tractor. As we explained for mounted mulchers, you’ll need to use a tractor with a motor power that’s able to handle the diameter of what you’re shredding—see above. The offset mulcher allows easy access to ditches and the possibility of cutting vertically or horizontally. It is therefore often used in road maintenance.
