Mini Skid Steer Brush Cutter Frequently Asked Questions
WHICH MINI SKID STEER MOUNTS ARE AVAILABLE FOR V20 MINI SKID STEER ROTARY BRUSH CUTTERS?
The V20 Mini Skid Steer Brush Cutter has three mini mounts to choose from:
- Toro ®/Mini-Universal
Universal skid steer quick tach mount not available.
DO THE V20 ROTARY BRUSH CUTTERS USE THE SAME BLADES AS THE V40 SKID STEER BRUSH CUTTERS?
No, they aren’t as long as the blades on the V40 Cutters but they both use the same mount hardware and utilize ½” x 4” updraft blades.
WHAT’S THE FLOW RATE RANGE OF THE V20 MINI SKID STEER ROTARY BRUSH CUTTER?
The motor is rated for 11-18 GPM. All of the motors that Virnig uses have a zero overflow tolerance. Using the attachment at higher than rated flow will eventually cause catastrophic failure of the motor and can cause abnormal stress on the bearing spindle.
WHAT IS THE V20 ROTARY BRUSH CUTTER’S BEST APPLICATION?
Virnig V20 Mini Skid Steer Rotary Brush Cutters are designed to clear undergrowth and cut small trees up to 3” in diameter.
Closed front cutters will be better at cutting grass and mulching material while open front cutters will be better for quickly clearing brush and small trees.
WHY DO I NEED TO WEAR PROPER PPE?
Virnig Brush Cutters are capable of throwing debris over 200 feet and can cause serious bodily harm or death. V20 Mini Skid Steer Brush Cutters should NEVER be operated with the rear deck more than 12” above the ground. Doing so creates a great risk of damage to the loader as well as injury or death of the operator.
CAN I GET CASTERS/ROLLER?
The Rotary Brush Cutter is not designed to use casters or a rear roller.
DOES THE ROTARY BRUSH CUTTER CUT BI-DIRECTIONALLY?
No. Running the flywheel system in reverse will cause the cutter to cut poorly, easily stall, and have minimal torque.
The Rotary Brush Cutter is designed to spin counter-clockwise and takes 7-10 seconds to come to a complete stop. If the flywheel is running in reverse, slow down will be much faster and very loud.
Operating the Rotary Brush Cutter’s flywheel counter-clockwise is essential for proper operation and preventing damage to the cutter’s blades and motor.
HOW IMPORTANT IS A QUALITY SPINDLE?
The spindle is the most expensive performance component on a skid steer brush cutter. It is responsible for smoothly transferring power from the hydraulic motor to the flywheel and absorbing impact that could damage the hydraulic motor.
High-performance skid steer brush cutters require heavy-duty spindles to ensure reliability and productivity.
WHAT CUTTER WIDTH SHOULD I PURCHASE?
For efficient operation, purchase a skid steer brush cutter with a cut width that is wider than the tires or tracks of your loader.
Loader capacity should also be considered. Selecting a skid steer attachment that is too wide will add weight, volume, and surface area, all factors that could affect performance.
Virnig Frequently Asked Questions
HOW DO I PURCHASE VIRNIG ATTACHMENTS?
Virnig sells mini skid steer, compact tractor, and skid steer attachments through a network of independently owned dealers throughout the United States and Canada. Call 800-648-2408 for assistance in finding a dealer or use the online Dealer Finder.
WHAT TYPE OF ATTACHMENT INTERFACE/HOOKUP DOES VIRNIG USE?
All Virnig skid steer attachments are manufactured with a universal mount to fit most skid steer loaders. The mounting frame is built to ISO 24410 and SAE J2513 standards.
All Virnig mini skid steer attachments are manufactured with a Toro®/mini universal mount, Bobcat® mount, or ASV® mount.
WHAT IS THE SETUP TIME FOR A VIRNIG ATTACHMENT?
Most Virnig attachments are ready to work right off the pallet.
To minimize setup time, Virnig Manufacturing requires the machine brand and model to be listed in every order for attachments with hydraulic components. This ensures proper hose length, routing, and coupler sizing. In addition, all hydraulic Virnig Attachments are tested for leaks and proper operation before leaving the factory. There may be specific scenarios in which additional setup time will be required.
HOW QUICKLY CAN I GET REPLACEMENT PARTS?
Most parts for Virnig skid steer attachments are available in-stock and can be shipped as early as the same day the order is received. Fabricated and back ordered parts are available with a reasonable lead time. Virnig uses several shipping options to provide timely and cost effective delivery to customers.
Check with a local Virnig dealer for replacement part availability.
WHAT WARRANTY DOES VIRNIG OFFER?
All Virnig parts and attachments are warranted for one year from the end user’s date of purchase, or the dealer’s date of first rental/demonstration. If the warranty period has expired, a sales receipt or first rental slip will be required for warranty consideration.
WHY DOES VIRNIG USE NITROSTEEL® CYLINDER RODS?
Virnig uses NitroSteel® cylinder rods because they are a superior performing alternative to chrome plating. The finish offers improved corrosion resistance and better grease retention.
Chrome plated cylinder rods can flake or pit and destroy the seals or other internal components; resulting in downtime and expensive repairs.
A NitroSteel® rod will perform better and increase the service life of a cylinder, making it the cost-effective choice. Learn more about the benefits of the NitroSteel® process.
