Drum Cutters KDC for Excavator


The drum cutters with robust spur gearing are driven by high torque motors. In addition, they are equipped with a gear reduction to increase the cutting force. The optimal selection of drum and chisel guarantees high performance for loosening of material and reduces wear.
The best suited components for your task will provide optimum penetration into the rock at low vibration and noise levels.
Underwater operation in up to 25m water depth is no problem thanks to the heavy duty sealing system!

Some facts on the KDC drum cutters:

  • Low noise level and less vibration reduce work fatigue
  • Maximum performance due to robust spur gear
  • Waterproof to 25m depth
  • Extremely robust with low maintenance due to massive drive shaft bearing and heavy duty sealing system
  • Hydraulic motor can be adjusted to the output of the excavator hydraulics
  • Fast and easy exchange of wear parts reduces downtimes
  • Large drum and chisel assortment
  • Optional 360° Rotation: rotation of the cutter allows exact positioning in corners, on walls and other vertical surfaces for more accurate contouring
  • Three drum options: excavating, demolition or profiling

Also great in combination with our NOX Tiltrotators!
