Maddock Construction Equipment’s Model 48E Berm Cutter is a tow-type, engine-driven machine designed to pulverize and discharge the high berm at the road edge. This model can average 3 to 5 miles per day, with one man and one machine in a variety of weather conditions. The shoulder vegetation is pulverized by the horizontal cutter drum, then discharged to the right into the field as mulch. When configured for left-hand discharge, the material is deposited onto the roadway in a windrow for loading, or broadcast across the roadway on gravel roads to recover the stone in the berm.
A tractor of approximately 12,000 lbs. weight and capable of ground speeds of 15 feet per minute at idle is required for best operation.
