Slope Mulching

Clear Up To 50° Slopes!

Grazer will make short work of hillsides and gullies that are covered in gorse, bamboo, blackberry, jasmine, and a whole range of other weedy, scrubby vegetation – leaving behind only an eco-friendly layer of composting mulch.

Property Maintenance

Steep section maintenance is a breeze for Grazer’s machines. Clearing tough weeds from steep hillsides, gullies, drains, and driveway banks is cost-effective and safe with our remote-controlled mulching machines. Grazer is perfect for clearing steep paddocks, back sections, and ‘written-off’ areas of your property that have been put aside as unmanageable. Orchard managers will see great value in selective clearing beneath trees or low orchard structures, including tree trimmings.

Our powerful Forest Mulcher decimates mature stands of blackberry, gorse, scrub, bamboo and other noxious weeds, leaving behind a protective layer of mulched vegetation, reducing soil erosion and run-off.

Fire breaks and tracks are easy to create for Grazer. Our slope mulching services can save time and money when used before other works such as landscaping, property development, and site clearing for civil works.

Machine Advantages

Our specially-engineered machines have a suspended engine that swings with gravity, maintaining as low centre of gravity as possible. Combined with a large track surface area and optional track spikes, our Deltrak units are capable of clinging to hillsides that are difficult to walk up. The tracks mean they have a light ‘footprint’, creating minimal disturbance compared to larger machines. Our machines can safely traverse soft ground, use ramps or be lifted by crane or helicopter to access remote or difficult areas. You’ll be surprised where we can get to. 

Efficient and Effective

When you compare power tools – like chainsaws and scrub-cutters – it’s worth remembering that cutting down vegetation is only one (dangerous) part of the clearing process. Cut-down material would then need to be gathered up and fed into a stationary mulcher – a laborious (and costly) task. Grazer cuts down, mulches and spreads the offending vegetation in a just few passes.

Grazer services the Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Hauraki, Coromandel and all surrounding areas. Whether it’s gorse mulching, blackberry mulching, steep section maintenance, or fire risk reduction vegetation management, Grazer are your local professional slope mowing and mulching service.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, sorry. Like almost all other mechanical cutters, the tough fibres in flax (harakeke), cabbage tree (ti kouka), raupo (bullrush, cats tail), and wild green ginger wrap around the cutters and seize the machine. Flax isn’t acceptable at green waste refuse centres for the same reason.

Height is not usually an issue as in most cases, as you will see from our videos and before/after images.

The forest mulching attachment is capable of tackling thick, tall material, 200-300 mm thick. For material taller than that, the forest mulcher will cut down, flatten and then mulch in a few passes.

The flail attachment is capable of mowing tall grass and the like.

No, sorry. Our health and safety standards are very strict. Only experienced operators should use these machines. 

 Get in touch with the Grazer team and we will talk through access constraints. The machine is 1.25 metres wide, and it can traverse obstacles via ramps or be lifted in by crane or helicopter.
