New Hydrostatic Drive Brush Cutter from Little Wonder

The BRC-26 Hydro Brush Cutter from Little Wonder features a hydrostatic drive with clutchless variable operating speeds — as fast as 4.2 miles per hour driving forward and 1.7 miles per hour in reverse — which makes it easy to adapt to changing worksite conditions. 

Little Wonder Hydro Brush CutterThe brush cutter tackles a variety of vegetation including weeds, heavy brush and dense vegetation, clearing about an acre of brush per hour. Engine options are a 10 hp Honda GXV390 or 12.5 hp Briggs & Stratton Intek. 

“With our hydrostatic drive, operators adjust speed instantly for varying terrains without shifting gears,” said Bruno Quanquin, Little Wonder vice president of sales and marketing. “Also, we built in additional features for productivity, ease-of-use, durability and easy maintenance.”

The Little Wonder brush cutter effectively handles heavy, thick brush and trees up to two inches thick and five feet high. It features solid rods to connect the transmission, park brake and blade clutch eliminating the risk of branches getting tangled in and breaking the cables that are commonly used on competitive units. 

Operator comfort and safety components include a wraparound hand guard across the handlebars and front of the machine to shield the operator’s hands. Five swinging 12-gauge steel deck plates line the front of the unit for better debris containment. A speed limiter dial allows the operator to set the maximum speed for the conditions while on the go. A parking break provides secured footing when parking on slopes and hills. 

A steel push bar in front of the machine knocks down saplings. The 1 1/2-inch wide and 1/4-inch thick 7-gauge plate steel skid shoes provide flotation over rough terrain. Little Wonder bolts, rather than welds, its brush cutter deck roof plate to the cutting deck providing easy-access for adjustments. Sixteen-inch foam-filled tires to prevent punctures from brush, nails, glass or other sharp items. 

For reduced maintenance, the brush cutter features easy-access service points. Visible indents on the unit’s sides simplify greasing. Operators can replace the belt in minutes by simply removing four bolts. The tempered spring steel 26-inch cutting blade is sharpened on all sides and is reversible to double the blade life. For transport, the unit incorporates cutouts for running tether straps, which makes it easy to secure on a trailer or truck bed. 

 Little Wonder backs its Hydro Brush Cutter with a two-year commercial and rental warranty.
