Overview

Cut woody brush and saplings up to 3" thick! The DR Trimmer Mower equipped with the Beaver Blade will transform your machine into an amazing brush cutter on wheels-- capable of cutting woody material such as tough berry canes, brush, even hardwood trees up to 3 inches in diameter.

The Beaver Blade's patented circular chainsaw chain-in-groove design allows the chain to absorb some of the sudden shocks and stresses that can easily shatter a fixed-tooth brush blade, because the chain slips slightly in the groove when it hits obstacles. The weight of the machine is supported by the wheels, so there's far less chance for the blade to twist, bind, or kick back.

Please Note: The Beaver Blade should always be used with the Aluminum Mow-Ball Support (included in complete package).

The 12" Beaver Blade is compatible with DR Trimmer Mowers manufactured from 2000 – present. The Beaver Blade is NOT available for SPRINT or Compact Models of DR Trimmer Mowers. Please call toll-free 1-800-687-6575 if you have questions.

7.25 hp Manual Pro Beaver Blade Kit
Posted by: Paul C. from Brandon, MS on 07/08/2018
Rating: Product Review Stars: 5.00 star rating
Just received my new trimmer mower and Beaver Blade complete kit for manual trimmers. Excited about using in my 1 acre field. Unfortunately, the trimmer came without nuts to hold the wheels on, as well as no manual for it or the engine. Customer Service is supposed to be sending those items in a few days. I installed the Beaver Blade brake kit very easily. The instructions were complete, and the existing mounting bolts that it attached to were just the right height to properly tighten the locknuts. Also, I was able to install the Beaver Blade without problems. Unfortunately, the kit that I purchased did not include the 3/16 file that was supposed to be included. I haven't had a chance to talk with customer service about this problem, but will in the next day. So, I have a lot of small trees and stumps to cut, and am admiring my new DR Trimmer sitting in my garage without wheels attached. What happened to the complete, good customer service that we experienced 20 years ago when we bought our first DR Trimmer, and 10 years ago when we bought our second one, and in-between, when we bought various kits and parts
Response from DR SupportHello Paul, thank you for letting us know about the parts we missed in packing your shipment. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. It looks like everything has made its way to you. Please be in touch if there are any other issues. Again, thank you for letting us know.

Works great for me

I have anything from half an inch to 3 inch trees everywhere. Wanted to clear out the small stuff to make the area more attractive and useable. The blade works great and is done much easier than lopers for real small stuff and a chain saw for things that are bigger. No bending to use the other tools i mentioned. I am very happy with this and best of all my wife loves it and wants to use it!

Secondary brake install
Posted by: Ed L. from Granbury, TX on 05/11/2018
Rating: Product Review Stars: 1.00 star rating
Having just bought the self propelled timer I decided to mount the beaver blade. I was surprised to find you had to install a seconary brake. Due to the heavy mass of the blade - the additional brake is needed. The design is adequate - the brake works against the forward drive pully vice the belt. Install problems were abundant. First the rear brake mounting bolts which you are supposed to use are to short for proper thread engagement to the brake’s locknuts- The kit didn’t include the 1/4by 20 1 inch bolts came with3/4 inch. Aardvark a lock washer and all was golden. Second - utilizing the secondary hole in the primary brake arm created a interference problem with the primary brake’s plastic pully rubbed. Resulted this problem by swapping holes with the. Primary brake’s release spring. This necessitated removal of the lower shield 4 bolts and was not covered in the instructions. Lastly, the secondary brake control arm was too long - the brake would not release. I had to re-bend the link arm shorten it 1/4 inch in order for the brake to release. Now all is good with only half a day wasted. Now I’ll see if all this pain was worth it when I use the machine. I’ll capture that review when I rate the trimmer. 05/11

Had one for 10 year-old machine. Good product that works very well. Must be certain to keep blade lubricated to avoid it not turning in slot if it hits obstruction.

Q.How close to the ground will it cut, or how much stump is left.
A.Thank you for contacting us.

The Beaver Blade can cut very close to the ground, however, if you get too close, the soil, stones, rocks will dull the blade very quickly. We recommend that you keep it at least 1/2 inch above the ground for best performance.

Please contact us if you have further questions. PL

Q.Beaver Blade brake assembly and trimming.
After you have installed the Beaver Blade brake assembly, etc, do you have to remove the brake assembly when you take the Beaver Blade off and revert the mower to trimmer duty?
A.You do not have to remove the beaver blade brake assembly when going back to using the trimmer cord assembly. It will not interfere with operation and it will continue to help stop the cutter head from spinning when the bail bar is released. For more information, please feel free to contact our Technical Support department toll free at 1-(888) 550-0062 Monday - Friday from 8:00am - 6:00pm Eastern and Saturday from 8:30am - 5:00pm.

Q.Can I replace the chain with one from a local chainsaw store?
A.Thank you for your interest in the Beaver Blade for the DR Trimmer/Mower.

We do not recommend changing the chain on the Beaver Blade as there is a chance that it will not be fit properly and may fly off and cause injury to the operator. The Beaver Blade does come with a file for sharpening the chain.

Please contact us if you have further questions.

Q.Would this 12" blade be appropriate for a brush cutter with a 53cc engine?
A.A 53cc engine should be able to run the 12" beaver blade however you may find that the engine will struggle if you try to cut too quickly with it. If the brush cutter is a hand held, you may want to consider the 9" beaver blade as the engine should have no problem running it and also a smaller blade should prove much easier to control with a hand held power unit.

A couple things you will want to check on is that the machine has an adequate enough brake assembly to properly stop the beaver blade and also that it can mount to your cutter head. The 9" blade has a 1" diameter arbor and the 12" blade has an arbor diameter of .375"

Q.Will this work on other brand trimmer/mowers?
A.Unfortunately we can not recommend using the Beaver Blade on other manufacturers trimmers since we can not speak for what a different manufacturers machine is capable of. The Beaver Blade does require more from the trimmer than the use of trimmer cord and if certain assemblies on the trimmer you install it on (such as the brake assembly) are not built to handle the extra strain, it can cause your machine to become hazardous. Our Trimmer Mowers are specifically engineered to be able to operate the accessories we have available for them. We appreciate your inquiry and if there is anything else we can help you with, please feel free to give us a call at 1-(888) 550-0062 Monday - Friday from 8:00am - 8:00pm Eastern, Saturday from 8:30am - 5:00pm, and Sunday from 9:30am - 5:30pm.
