Gilbert launches new brushcutter

May 1, 2014, Roberval – Gilbert is now offering the new GM-6 brushcutter-mower. This new model is the latest addition to the Gilbert GM Series Brushcutter-Mowers which are recognized for their cost effectiveness in roadside vegetation management.

The GM-6 is mounted on a folding boom arm which offers excellent manoeuvrability with a total reach of 16 feet. It is the ideal tool to brush cut ditches, back slopes and trim the trees as needed on forestry, municipal, secondary roads, etc. It cuts stems up to 8 inch (20 cm) diameter easily at an average operating speed of six km per hour; thanks to the patented concept that cuts vegetation as opposed to mulching it.

According to a FPInnovation study to be published later this year, the GM Series is the most cost effective roadside maintenance equipment available on the market. It is up to four times faster than any other application at a cost per km many times lower which result in very low operating costs. The head can be installed on most graders or carriers using the standard hydraulic and fixing points for easy fitment and removal.
