Abstract:

The purpose of this performance evaluation test was to determine the capabilities of the Peco Tracked Brush Blazer TBB-2001, a self-propelled brush cutter, to cut and clear vegetation up to a classification of difficult in an efficient and cost-effective manner in terms of operating and maintenance costs. The model TBB-2001 cutter received one modification prior to being tested. A universal radio-control unit was added by the Armys project engineer to allow remote operation of the cutter, simulating actual operation in a land-mine-contaminated area. The test was conducted in October 2007 at an Army test facility in central Virginia.
