Think Your Bush Hog Is Tough? Check Out A Real Disc Trencher
It used to be after you clear cut an area and wanted to do something with it, you’d need to bring in a bush hog, a backhoe, a bulldozer and countless other big beasts to get the job done. Well, turns out, after the trees are gone, all you need is a solid disc trencher like the one made by Bracke Forest. It’s name? The Scarifier. If that doesn’t sound menacing, you may be in for a real show. This disc trencher manages to carve apart the ground with ease.
Turns out, Bracke Forest makes their disc trencher with multiple options – blend, puree, and fine mince meat. It all depends on the size of the project and the type of ground you have to deal with. What makes this Scarifier so incredible is that it can be easily maneuverable even through remote, treacherous terrain. It’s even got GPS so you can always find out where you are and even report that info back to your planners so they know where to go from there.
Digging The Dirt – Being Good To Mother Earth
With giant lumber operations and land cultivation, it can be really hard to find a cost efficient way to carve up the ground and still give the wildlife a good situation. This next generation of disc trenchers, excavators, and the like are all designed with the intent that good engineering and good planning can make a better situation for us all – ecologically and financially. Go figure, they’re Swedish. The Swedes are good when it comes to engineering really touch machinery for mining and lumber operations.
But there’s actually a surprising amount of computerization in this Scarifier. There’s a computer that controls the trencher itself â making sure adjustments to pressure
But there’s actually a surprising amount of computerization in this Scarifier. There’s a computer that controls the trencher itself – making sure adjustments to pressure, widths, and angles are all obeyed. This gives you a crazy amount of precision when deciding how you want the land to look after the disc trencher has moved through. Best of all, these systems are meant to be mounted to an existing bulldozer or similar tracked vehicle, meaning you don’t have to buy a whole new machine just to get the job done. Using tools to finish the job instead of lugging in extra trucks and heavy equipment is always appreciated. This disc trencher really stands out though, because unlike a traditional harrow that only stirs up the ground and breaks the top layers of dirt, this Scarifier actually digs down and breaks up the old root systems allowing new growth and new life to take the area. It also breaks down just the humus (top soil) and actually mixes in all the minerals from the deeper ground. This is important because as trees start to grow, they’re going to want those minerals to help nourish them. It’s one of the big reasons why even recreational gardeners pay such close attention to adding the right soil mixtures to their potted plants. Well, with the Scarifier disc trencher, no need to lug in expensive top soil or whatnot – it’s covered in the digging.
The Biggest Obstacles With Clear Cutting?
Anyone who’s done any lumbering knows the disc trencher, the stump grinder, and the wood cutter all have to compete for that top place. The Harvester Eco Log 668 seems to be the future’s answer to how to efficiently cut down multiple trees in succession while still stacking flawlessly. But after the Harvester goes through, there’s still the issue of the stumps. Stumps are these massive obstacles for other vehicles moving through the area and their root systems can guarantee a world of annoyances. So there’s the Morebarks and other powered track stump grinders that help level off the ground so wheeled vehicles can move through. But after the stumps are ground down and all the trees are gone, then it’s time to replenish the ground and let new trees take their place. That’s where inventions like the Bracke Forest Scarifier disc trencher are so important. They bring back the importance of innovation and tracked machinery that gets the land back to a repaired state. This is possible because the disc trencher aerates the soil and mixes the minerals into the hummus of the top layer. Basically, you’re giving the next generation of trees a fantastic head start – which is what traditional forestry is all about. The benefits of these types of machines like the Scarifier disc trencher are endless. We’re able to do the work that would usually take a massive crew of well-fed, healthy men working weeks or even months on end to accomplish in the space of maybe a full work day. That is incredible and it shows that we’re always coming up with new, impressive ways to cut, grind, saw, and restore the land.
