The core of Maxmix is our Rayco 1754-240 horizontal grinder, which is fed by a Doosan 180X excavator.We currently grind slash produced from the timber harvest on our family tree farm near Blue Lake, CA. MaxMix works and we belive in our service enough to use it ourself. We have a brushing head and a shear attachment for the excavator that we can use to help you achieve your land management goals.
Slash and Brush Grinding
The heart of MaxMix is our Rayco 1754 Horizontal Grinder. It is self propelled and tracked so the machine can be positioned precisely any terrain that our tracked excavator can reach. The grinder works in tandem with the excavator as it is remotely operated by the excavator operator, who also loads the grinder. The grinder's cutting head is 54" wide and quickly processes excavator loads of slash. For smaller jobs, such as brush removal for defensive space around a home or farm our horizontal grinder is far more effective than a hand loaded wood chipper. What would be hours of manual loading we complete in minutes. For larger jobs such as slash reduction after timber harvest, we can process whole trees and logs up to 15 inches round. Larger logs can be processed by splitting the log into managable pieces using the teeth on the excavator bucket. Limbs, tops, and other slash is no match for MaxMix's horizontal grinder.
We currently have compost available for sale. We have alder compost and redwood-whitewood-hardwood compost ready. Compost analysis reports are available on request.
Ammending your soil with compost is a way to increase the humus component of your soil. Adding compost improves soil structure, increases your soils ability to hold water, and increases the amount of micro and macro organisms in your soil.
We also have wood chip and partially composted wood chip available. This material would make good mulch to retain the moisture in your soil during the dry summer and keep weeds down in your garden.
MaxMix's has a brush head for the excavator that we can use to remove the brush from along your roads to improve the access to your property. The brush head can also be used for brush mastication projects to clear your property before replanting or to clear land for other uses.
We also have a shear attachment that we can use to take down brush up to 12 inches in diameter.
