ONE PASS UP. ONE PASS BACK. You’re done. Standing trees, brush and stumps easily succumb to the Slasher’s 10 foot wide mouth. The Slasher is an environmentally friendly animal that mulches as it works and incorporates the debris back into the soil to create a stable base. Say goodbye to burning and root raking.

A cheaper alternative to burning piles: Yes we tested it and in most applications this is a cheaper, far safer, more efficient and environmentally friendly way of disposing of burn piles.
