Kuhn BKE 180 landscape shredders, the standard in the grass shredder range, sets the bar when it comes to maintaining grassy areas such as parks, green spaces, and pastures.

The optimized shredding box profile ensures that large volumes of plant residues can be shredded while limiting power consumption. Equipped with a roller positioned very close to the rotor, the machine follows the ground perfectly and achieves improved decomposition. This shredder is also available with two different hitch options for a fixed position behind the tractor or a hydraulic offset for cutting around obstacles. Shredding height can be adjusted by the semi-pivoting roller or wheels.


High-Capacity, High-Strength Design

The Kuhn BKE shredders mow tall and thick strands of grass and vegetative materials in parks, nurseries, green spaces and orchards.

Choice of Hitch to Match Your Needs

Fixed Two-Position Hitch

  • Allows operation behind the tractor, or offset at 11”-18” to the right

Hydraulic Sliding Offset Hitch

  • Allows on-the-go offset of the machine for mowing around obstacle

Choose a Roller or Wheels for Adjustable Height Control

For intensive work, the roller has removable ends and is fitted with reinforced roller bearings that only need minimum maintenance and reduce replacement costs. The 6” diameter roller gives full width, adjustable height control. Complete with scraper to maintain accurate cutting height. It also provides good residue/soil contact with even ground pressure across the width of the machine.

Semi-pivoting action from optional pneumatic wheels allows use without lifting on corners. Adjustable in height (and spacing when attached to support bar), wheels are a great choice for use in row-crop applications and for rolling terrain.

Available with Articulated Universal Knives

Articulated knives feature a special self-sharpening design with a “scoop” design that lifts and cuts grass. (Note: Not for mowing in rocky or irregular conditions)
