    I think its a great mulcher .... : ( , the problem i have is it throws mulch"not a fine product,but large stringy pieces" 500-600 ft. sometimes.I think maybe its just too "BEASTY" for where i intend to do most of my work. I think this mulcher is quite a-bit more dangerous as far as slinging the ever-living-hell out of debris. Somtimes tooOOO large of tree pieces that should have definitely been mulched....

    I have not run an AFE disk mulcher but have demo'd the Diamond and own a diamond brush mower. You need to keep the flywheel spinning, the faster it is spinning, the less likely it is to sling pieces large enough to cover any distance. You also learn what direction is the danger zone and it's normally easy enough to work around hazards when you are able to direct the debris in a safe direction. But yea, it's not a tool to use around houses or people, but it's really productive.

    Talk to Skid Steer Genius. You’ll find them on the web. They have custom harnesses for pretty much every application.
