38″ – 19 x 2″ sections on one stationary knife, and 19 x 2” on one moving knife
Do I need the mounting bracket to operate the Sabre?
Yes. The mounting bracket is required to properly attach the unit to a bucket and allow the Sabre to be positioned in different configurations.
What position can the Sabre operate?
The unit can be adjusted to cut in a vertical, horizontal, or any angle in between. The universal mounting bracket allows for a full 110 degree positioning angle.
What size of material can the Sabre cut?
The unit is comprised of two sections of sickles, which have just under a two-inch stroke enabling the unit capable of cutting material up to 1 1/2” in diameter. Because the Sabre cuts material from both sides, it leaves a nice clean cut.
How many GPM does the Sabre require to operate?
This unit only requires 3.3 GPM at 200-psi max to operate properly.
Where do I connect the hydraulics?
To an auxiliary hydraulic port on your tractor, loader or skid steer. If no auxiliary hydraulic port is available, then you can tap into the hydraulic pitch port on the bucket.
What is the cutting speed of the Sabre?
Optimum cutting speed of the unit is 80 – 100 RPM. You can count the moving sections by eye. If you cannot, the unit is operating too fast.
Can I use the Sabre as a sickle mower?
Yes. The unit can be positioned in this fashion. Many users utilize the Sabre to mantain growth underneath electrical fence lines.
How do I lubricate the Sabre?
All contact surfaces are greased when manufactured and should be inspected and greased regularly.
How long has the Sabre SAMURAI been in service?
The unit has been in service since 1983..
Are the sections a standard size?
No. They are 2″ sickle sections manufactured in Austria to the specifications of the Sabre. They are bolted on and not riveted making replacement simple and easy.
Are the sections smooth or serrated?
Serrated. We found that serrated sections “bite” the material better.
How does it compare to other cutters on the market?
As far as we are aware there are no other cutters on the market that compare to the Sabre for it’s versatility, cutting capacity, low operating requirements and ease of use.
What is the make and model number of the hydraulic motor?
We use the following:
Charlyn (H) Series – #101-1001
Or Dan Foss – #151-2121
Or Ross – #MK021310AAAB
The motors are interchangeable mount and capacity but if parts are required you should specify the make and the model to obtain the correct parts from any hydraulic repair depot.
Are hydraulic hoses supplied?
No. Due to the numerous different models of tractors, loaders and skid steers, it would be impossible to completely satisfy every customer with a standard length of hose.
Is there a longer version of the Sabre available?
We have found that 38 inch cutting bar is an optimum length to allow for easy manoeuvrability when used in either a vertical or horizontal position. If needed, some users will extend the 2” x 2” square tubing on the mounting bracket to enable the unit to have a longer reach.
