SEPPI M. showcases its new offsetting mulcher for the mulching of vegetation along watercourses and roadsides, as well as land clearing and site preparation. In addition to the L9 flex type for 130- to 240-hp tractors, the lighter L7 flex version is now available, for 80- to 160-hp tractors, which replaces the original SAV model.
The new L7 flex model is based on the technology and concept of the L9 flex model; however, due to its low weight, it can also be used with smaller tractors. The L7 flex model is available in the work widths 150/175/200/225.
The new L7 flex was developed to respond to changing market conditions. Thanks to the new design, it is now possible to shred large slopes, with reach and safety for operators and the machine.
The L7 flex model is for lateral mulching of large areas for tractors with a minimum weight of 2.5 tons.
The L7 flex has a stable attachment and replaceable wear parts in the frame. The SPACE-LINK suspension follows the contour of the ground. The SPACE-LINK system allows the machine to steer vertically in the event of obstacles. Additionally, the SPACE-LINK double joint allows for a fully upright position during transport and extreme downward rotation (up to nearly 70°) when extreme lateral movement is required. The FLEX-SAFE anti-collision safety device alerts the driver, providing time to avoid possible damage from collision.
This offsetting mulcher operates with a considerable side shift up to 96 cm to the right of the tractor's roadway, therefore, being able to work safely away from the edge of the slope. The mulcher can be tilted hydraulically during operation and can be raised up to 90° and lowered up to 65°. This product feature allows the mulcher to adapt to a given slope, thus making slopes accessible.
The HELIX spiral rotor moves reliably during use. The hardened SEPPI flails and two rows of forged counter blades are capable of mulching grass and prunings up to 7 cm in diameter. In addition, a standard support wheel and large diameter roller is assembled under the base to support the mulcher, making it possible to steer over uneven ground. It is height adjustable, therefore, allows changing of the cutting height according to relevant requirements.
Even in tight spaces, the machine can be used in small hollows. With its wide reach, it is able to cover large areas.
