Fecon Australia Releases Innovative New Forestry Mulchers

Built tough to tackle even the hardest Australian timbers, Fecon Australia’s range of premium mulchers for skid steers and excavators is now bigger and better than ever following the addition of two impressive new models – the Standard Flow and the Blackhawk.

Standard Flow Skid Steer Mulcher

Fecon’s range of world-leading skid steer forestry mulchers have until now been exclusive to only larger loaders that offer 91 litres per minute or more of hydraulic flow. Fecon Australia are therefore proud to release the all new Standard Flow Bull Hog Mulcher to suit skid steers and track loaders with as low as 53 litres per minute. Owners and operators of mid-sized machines now have a lucrative new capability of forestry and land clearing work using a premium Fecon mulcher – meaning the Standard Flow mulcher is a game changer for the entire industry.

Twenty-two highly durable cutting tools, designed to maximise mulching efficiency and provide an unrivalled long service life, are contained within a cleverly designed 1270mm rotor to produce a consistently fine chip size and a remarkably tidy final product. Operating within a 2400 to 3000 rpm range, Fecon’s Standard Flow Mulcher can efficiently process small trees up to 150mm in diameter, and makes light work of even the densest scrub. With a weight of less than 600kg even including its adaptable mounting plate and push bar, coupled with its close centre of gravity design, the Fecon Standard Flow Mulcher is easily carried by most mid-sized skid steers and track loaders.

Fecon Australia’s new Standard Flow Mulcher head is ideal for owners and operators of mid-sized skid steers or compact track loaders undertaking fire prevention clearing, general vegetation management, agricultural mulching such as fence rows and crop perimeters, construction site clean-ups and dense brush clearing.

The new capability for mid-sized skid steer loaders to run a heavy-duty, premium quality mulching attachment expands the overall business capabilities and generates lucrative additional revenue streams for virtually every one of the thousands of owners and operators of these machines throughout Australia.

Blackhawk Skid Steer Mulcher

Another mulching head that is brand new to the Fecon Australia line-up is the innovative Blackhawk Mulcher for skid steers and track loaders.

Where Fecon’s other mulchers are designed to process trees and thick scrub, the Blackhawk is instead the perfect mulcher to tackle land clearing operations in stringy, fibrous, dense and fast-growing vegetation. The Blackhawk is formulated to process stubborn foliage quickly and efficiently, and will also collect and feed already felled material to ensure no unprocessed vegetation is left behind.

The Fecon Blackhawk’s uniquely designed rotor contains 30 cutting tools distributed evenly across a wide 1930mm cutting width, offering a prime configuration for quick spool up and immediate recovery.

Its reversible tools extend service life by double, and the ingeniously designed lace pattern of the rotor enhances the overall efficiency of the mulcher. The effect is a finer mulch size and evenly processed material.

Requiring a high hydraulic flow range of 91 to 171 litres per minute at a maximum 6000 psi pressure, and an overall weight of 1230kg including mounts, the Fecon Blackhawk is intended for use with large skid steers and track loaders. Alternatively, owners and operators can attach the Blackhawk to Fecon Australia’s own impressive new FTX150 Forestry Mulching Tractor for maximised power and optimal results.
