"While back-burning is the preferred method of bushfire prevention, it is not always possible and reducing the fuel for fire is critical in helping keep communities safe, making bushfires easier to control and helping to prevent the spread to residential areas," the company says.

Digga Australia has a range of forestry and vegetation management attachments, starting with the Digga Slasha, which is a slasher made for smaller property maintenance, clearing scrub, tidying fence lines, general landscaping, roadway maintenance and parks maintenance.

The slasher is available to suit mini loaders, skid steers, excavators and tractors, and comes in three width options.

Its features include: a chain curtain to supress debris; a height-adjustable rounded side skids for smoother manoeuvrability over uneven terrain; a twin-blade, dual-rotation single cutting bar; and hoses and couplers.

"The Digga Slasha … is the perfect tool for cutting back long grasses and low level shrubbery that might lead to fire hazards while keeping paddocks tidy," Digga Australia Queensland sales manager Anthony Wieckmann says, adding that the attachment "is manufactured in Australia from quality materials ensuring performance and longevity".

Digga more ‘serious’ land maintenance attachments include mulchers, stick rakes, flail mowers and rotary axes suitable for skid steer loaders and excavators.

Digga is giving away a free set of replacement blades with every Digga Slasha bought during October 2017 (subject to T&Cs). See for more information.
