Bomford has expanded into the vegetation mulching equipment market with the introduction of the new BUCCANEER HDX a heavy duty young wood clearance machine which is suitable for use with tractors of between 90 to 200hp.

Available in working widths of 2.25m and 2.50m, the new Buccaneer HDX is designed to quickly and efficiently reduce standing or cut tree stumps and vegetation up to 300mm (1ft) thick, into fine shreds in a single pass.

To achieve this, the Buccaneer HDX can be specified with either hard faced swinging hammers mounted onto a heavy duty 40mm diameter shaft, or alternatively for really heavy duty work, fixed hammers fitted with replaceable tungsten carbide teeth can be specified that are able to incorporate the mulched material into the soil. In order to ensure maximum transfer of power from the 1000rpm PTO to the mulching blades or hammers, the Buccaneer HDX features a heavy duty gearbox with twin output drive system with a total of 12 transmission drive belts.

The benefit of the twin drive is that driving both ends of the cutting rotor, will half the torque transmitted compared with similar machines. The robust build of the Buccaneer HDX is evident in that the smaller 2.25m wide model weighs 1995kg with the wider 2.50m machine weighing 2,100Kgs both of which can mulch tree stumps up to 1ft thick.

Mounted on the rear of the Buccaneer HDX is a robust twin tube push bar that can be used to initially push over standing trees and vegetation, so making it easier for the blades or hammers to start mulching the vegetation. The Buccaneer also features a hydraulic hood which can be opened to allow access of larger vegetation or lowered to retain and increase the mulching effect, it also inhibits debris from flying out the rear of the machine.

The standard specification of the new Bomford Buccaneer HDX includes a front double-row chain guard, Cat 2/3 three-point linkage and heavy duty replaceable skids. A front mounted version of the Buccaneer HDX is also available.
