The purpose-built BRON 400XHP Forestry Mulcher, or Brush Tractor, is designed for environmentally friendly removal of brush from seismic lines, from electric-line and pipeline sites, commercial sites, recreational trails and forestry fireguard situations. Wide tracks, says the manufacturer, provide stability and high flotation for sensitive environments. The 400XHP Mulcher features an up-front cab with single-stick steering control and head-pressure gauge. The machine is powered with a 440-horsepower, Tier-3-compliant Caterpillar diesel engine. According to the company, the 400XHP is completely hydrostatic, with independent hydrostatic pumps for the head, resulting in full power to the head at all times.
