|Behind the scenes|
The Slash Cutter is a huge machine that is used to cut down and remove trees from the forests of Pandora. It is essentially a large tree harvester reminiscent of the machines on Earth. The vehicle is not seen in the movie but is revealed on the AVTR website.
The Slash Cutter's blade is a Unit NI-40 razor sharp rotating blade made from a diamond hard carbon fiber composite that cuts trees with minimal wear. A large forest can be cut down by just one cutter operating continuously for a few weeks. It cuts trees at a rate of one tree per minute. The blade has angled and beveled teeth to provide maximum cutting efficiency. A liquid hydrogen coolant runs down the cutting arm to prevent the blade from rising above operational temperatures caused by the extreme friction against the trees. Driver cab is auto-assist. The driver cab is protected by a DY-Flex Support.
