Take Safety Precautions

Before you get to work, it’s best to ensure you’re operating your skid steer properly. Never lift the blade higher than the cab door, and always ensure this door is shatterproof. Also, don’t ever leave your skid steer while the blades are moving for fear that you may injure yourself.

You should also ensure there are no people around you within 200 feet as debris can be easily flung from the brush cutter and injure someone.

How to Effectively Operate Your Brush Cutter

In order to effectively operate your skid steer brush cutter, it’s best to have the necessary experience. It can be a dangerous job operating this kind of equipment, so be careful and take your time as you learn how to operate the controls.

It’s also extremely important to not operate your brush cutter on steep terrain – so make sure you know exactly what you’ll be getting into before you begin cutting. Look around the area that you’ll be cutting and be aware of any uneven terrain, hills, etc. It’s also important to look for soft, wet patches as well as wires, rocks, etc. as these can either damage your brush cutter or prove difficult to navigate.
