CLARK Engineering has been confirmed as the official UK and Ireland dealer of MenSe OY’s range of heavy-duty excavator brush cutters. 

The RP Series has been developed to meet the needs of forestry and de-vegetation contractors to efficiently and safely cut down and trim trees, bushes and other vegetation.

MenSe excavator brush cutters are used for the safe and efficient removal of vegetation and can be fitted to a wide range of equipment. The cutters feature two reciprocating cutting blades that move in a scissoring motion that provide safe, efficient cutting and sawing.

Typical applications of use are for clearing power lines, railway and roadsides and regen growth on forestry sites. They are ideal for cutting away branches from trees that are interfering with traffic along the edges of roads and streets. 

The cutting action of MenSe cutters does not result in debris being thrown around, and therefore does not pose a danger to traffic. 

The cutters also allow controlled trimming of tree branches growing next to power lines without debris ending up on the wires. The cutter roughens up the cut surfaces, which slows down re-sprouting, and if it runs into an obstacle it stops automatically, preventing breakage.

The smallest model, the MenSe RP4L, weighs only 90 kg, with a working width of 130 cm. Low oil consumption (20 l/min) allows the cutters to work with lightweight agricultural and plant machinery.

The largest cutter model, the RP10L, weighs 520 kg with a working width of 2.4 m and a maximum single cut of 100 mm, or sawing cut of 150 mm. The MenSe RP10L model is suitable for 15–20-tonne base machines.

Forestry Journal:

The cutter blades are manufactured from 500 HB abrasion-resistant steel, making them very durable with virtually no need to sharpen the blades. If necessary, sharpening is simple with a hand-held grinder.

MenSe excavator brush cutters can be configured for several installation types, such as with S Series quick-coupler brackets for tiltrotator installations or with their own rotation units for added dexterity and manoeuvrability around trees and on bankings.
