Mulching Products – FAQ’s

Here at Southern Cross AG Machinery, we get asked a large number of questions about our quality mulching products.

Here are some of the most commonly asked questions we receive:

  • Which Brands Do You Sell?

    At Southern Cross AG Machinery, we only deal in the best. In mulching, that means Muthing, the highest quality German engineering. Muthing is a premium brand. These are precision-made machines. Muthing is a global brand with proven productivity and cost efficiency benefits. That’s why we stock these very dependable products in preference to others.

  • A Mulcher or Flail Mower is a Big Investment; How Can I Be Sure I’m Getting My Money’s Worth?

These machines offer significant performance advantages. By using QSt/E fine-grain steel, the total weight of the machine is up to 15% lower while simultaneously strengthening the machine as a whole. This provides the machine with longevity, excellent weight/power ratios and better fuel economy. It also allows for a lower HP tractor to operate a larger working width machine.

    • What Makes Muthing Mulchers Different?

      There are a number of features that make a Muthing mulcher different to others on the market. Key features are:

      The ‘Shark Fin System’ a patented removable and segmented set of shredding bars. They can be replaced quickly allowing for a reduction in service time, machine downtime and overall repair costs.

      • Why Should I Purchase a Mulcher Over a Slasher?

        Mulchers are a great alternative to slashers because they produce and evenly distribute a finer mulch that decomposes more effectively.

        In contrast, slashers may leave long stems on the ground that creates ungainly windrows, which take longer to break down into the soil (see image below). Slashers are also prone to flicking up unknown objects from the grass, which can potentially cause damage to anything nearby.

        Pasture slashed producing windrows - slashers vs mulshers

        Mulchers produce no windrows and spread the mulched material evenly behind the tractor, outputting a finely de-fibered product. This de-fibered bi-product aids decomposition, which can improve pasture quality, soil structure and moisture retention.

      • Do You Carry Spare Parts in Stock?

        A comprehensive range of spare parts for all models are held in stock to meet customer needs.

      • Is There a Warranty?

        Yes, Southern Cross AG Machinery warrants products against defective workmanship and materials for 12 months. We also work with our dealer network to provide local support.
