iMX748R Fixed Tooth Mulcher for Excavator, 20-30 Ton

As with the standard iMX748, the iMX748R brush mulcher will efficiently mulch heavy brush and trees and is designed for contractors, rental and any other heavy duty mulching and land clearing. The difference is aggressive root rake teeth build into the frame to rip out rocks and move logs and has a heavier duty body build with AR400 steel that is the same weight but much stronger than mild steel. The standard 700 Series teeth are available in either Ripper or Planer style. The carbide Ripper tooth is the perfect general use tooth, their v-shaped design shreds through brush and makes them less vulnerable in areas plagued by rocks and debris. The 700 Series Planer style tooth provides the most efficient cutting by smoothly chipping away at the brush. It’s flat profile however makes it vulnerable to shattering on impact with rocks and other debris. See our brush cutting size chart to see how much this excavator mounted forestry mulcher can process according to your hydraulic flow. With the build in control and precision of the excavator, mulching around objects is not a problem, whether it’s in a ditch or overhead.

INTEGRATED SKID SHOES Integrated skid shoes

These durable skid shoes help the Brush Mulcher to better float over the ground for optimal mulching action.


Baumalight gives you the option to change out the ripper teeth for the planer style for a sharper bite with a smoother cut, but these teeth are more vulnerable to damage from rocks. Ripper teeth handle rocks much better, so Planer teeth are only recommended for cutting applications where efficiency is more important than tooth life.

700 Series Teeth

The 700 Series tooth utilizes the Cup and Cone mount, which is machined into the holder and forged into the teeth. Engineered to take all the strain off the mounting bolt and eliminating shearing forces, these carbide teeth are bolted in place.

Hardened Teeth Holders

Heavy-duty teeth holders resist bending and keep you working longer.

Spiral Tooth Pattern

For smoother mulching, the spiral tool pattern allows one tooth to engage at a time.

Root Rake

The MX530R, MX548R and iMX748R are equipped with a root rake for pushing fallen logs or other debris out of the way. The MX548R and iMX748R utilize replaceable bucket-style scrapper teeth.

Overtorque Protection - Relief Valve

The relief valve protects the motor and the hydraulic system from pressure spikes. When an obstacle is hit the relief valves open and relieves the pressure.


A heavy duty reinforced belt delivers the force from the gear box to the rotor. This offers protection from the shocks inherent in mulching.

Wire Protection Kit

Protective steel cover that prevents damage from wire fencing.

Chain Curtain

The rear of the unit is guarded by a chain curtain so standing brush enters and mulched debris exits.

Heavy duty frame

Heavy duty frame with T1 alloy tool steel sheet metal for all the main areas. Powder coated frame with multiple anti-slip pads to give you secure footing for ease of entry and exit from your cab.

Powder Coated

Our powder coat finish is much tougher than conventional paint to stand up to the rigors of mulching and helps prevent rusting


Our industry leading bent axis piston motors make the most use of your hydraulic flow and pressure for your brush clearing needs.


Couplers must be ordered separately as we do not supply hydraulic couplers with product due to the variety carrier specifications. Click the link below.

Hydraulic Flow & Pressure Database

For your convenience Baumalight has Developed a PSI Flow and Pressure database with over 1000 different carrier models to help you decide the best Baumalight model for your machine.

overHung Load Adapter (bearing support)

Baumalight mulchers use an overhung load adapter which is designed with tapered roller bearings to stand up to the rigors of heavy mulching.
