SWINGING HAMMER TOOTH DRUM
The swinging hammer teeth drum features spade like steel teeth with a long horizontal cutting edge. This edge gives a cleaner cutting performance on soft materials like hedges, resulting in a more level surface finish after cutting. The more bladed cutting edge is especially useful for tough but stringy materials like brambles. The swinging mount allows the teeth to pivot backwards when they do impact a particularly solid object. This reduces the shock to the tooth and to the drum.
Paddles are also better suited when working close to the ground in rocky environments as they can bounce back if they strike a rock or hard surface. For lighter duty work where clean cutting of soft vegetation is required, e.g. reshaping dense hedgerows or processing hedge and branch trimmings into mulch the hammer tooth is an ideal choice.
