V50 ROTARY BRUSH CUTTER – OPEN FRONT DECK FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT BLADES DO I USE ON THE V50 OPEN FRONT ROTARY BRUSH CUTTER?
The V50 Open Front Rotary Brush Cutter uses double-sided 5” x ⅝” blades that are reversible for longer life.
CAN I GET CASTERS OR A REAR ROLLER FOR THE V50 OPEN FRONT?
No, there are no options for this cutter.
WHAT IS THE V50 OPEN FRONT ROTARY BRUSH CUTTER’S BEST APPLICATION?
The V50 Open Front Rotary Brush Cutter is designed to rough-cut large, dense brush up to 6” in diameter.
DOES THE V50 OPEN FRONT 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 V50 Open Front Rotary Brush Cutter is designed to spin counter-clockwise and takes 7-10 seconds to slow down. If the flywheel is running in reverse, slow down will be much faster and very loud.
Operating the V50 Open Front Rotary Brush Cutter’s flywheel in counter-clockwise is essential for proper operation and preventing damage to the cutter’s blades and motor.
WHAT PROTECTS THE HYDRAULIC SYSTEM FROM PRESSURE SPIKES?
Standard pressure relief valves protect the motor and the loader’s hydraulic system from damaging pressure spikes. When the maximum pressure point is reached, the valve opens to prevent pressure from rising any further. This prevents seals or other internal components from breaking due to excessive pressure.
IF I HAVE A LOADER WITH A STANDARD AND HIGH FLOW OPTION, WHICH ROTARY BRUSH CUTTER SHOULD I ORDER?
Generally, higher GPM is better. Higher GPM provides more torque which prevents the cutter from losing power as easily and allows the cutter to return to cutting speed faster. There may be situations in which this is not true. Contact a local Virnig dealer or Virnig at 800-648-2408 for more information.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE V50 OPEN FRONT ROTARY BRUSH CUTTER AND THE V60 INDUSTRIAL ROTARY CUTTER?
- While both have an open front design, the V60 Industrial Rotary Cutter is designed to cut through heavier material.
- The V50 Open Front Rotary Brush Cutter’s three-blade flywheel system is lighter than an Industrial Rotary Cutter, which also has an additional fourth blade.
- The V50 Open Front Rotary Rotary Brush Cutter is 300-800 pounds lighter than an Industrial Rotary Cutter.
WHAT 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 and increase cutting surface area, these factors could affect performance.
WHY DO I NEED A SHATTERPROOF CAB ON MY LOADER?
Rotary Brush Cutters are capable of throwing debris over 200 feet and can cause serious bodily harm or death if not used with a shatterproof cab.
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. V50 Rotary Brush Cutters are equipped with USA made spindles.

WHAT TYPE OF ATTACHMENT INTERFACE/HOOKUP DOES VIRNIG USE?
Virnig skid steer attachments are manufactured with a universal mount to fit most skid steer loaders. Mounting frame is built to ISO 24410 and SAE J2513 standards.
DOES VIRNIG BUILD MINI-SKID STEER ATTACHMENTS?
All attachments have a universal skid steer mount. Use the recommended loader capacity listed per attachment to determine if it is properly sized for the machine in question.
WHAT IS RECOMMENDED LOADER CAPACITY?
Virnig skid steer attachments are rated to provide maximum performance and protection from damage when used with an appropriately sized skid loader.
Go here to find skid steer capacity and specs for 2015 models.
Contact a local Virnig dealer for the most accurate specs, or contact Virnig at 800.648.2408.
WHY DOES VIRNIG USE NITROSTEEL® CYLINDER RODS?
Virnig uses NitroSteel® 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.
WHAT IS THE SETUP TIME FOR A VIRNIG SKID STEER ATTACHMENT?
Most Virnig attachments are ready to work right off the pallet.
To minimize set up time, Virnig Manufacturing requires the machine brand and model to be listed on each order for attachments with hydraulic components to ensure 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.
