Transverse Drum Cutters

In several applications, rotary drum cutters or rock cutters are the main alternative to hydraulic breakers and drill and blast

Rotary drum cutters or rock cutters are hydraulic excavator attachments designed to increase the range of work available to excavators and increase their return on investment.

Benefits of rotary drum cutters, sometimes known as rock cutters:

  • low vibration levels, almost vibration free
  • low noise levels
  • accurate excavation profiles, due to their low energy impact cutting action, drum cutters can be used to create accurate, smooth surfaces
  • small particle size, material produced is ideally sized for use as back-fill without need for expensive crushing
  • high production rates in soft to medium hard materials
