Fecon Forestry Equipment: Built tough for Australian conditions

by editor

Fecon is one of the world’s premier manufacturers of forestry attachments and machines, globally renowned for building the toughest attachments in the industry.

Made in the USA using premium quality steel, Fecon products are engineered and constructed with unmatched durability and power to tackle any Australian timber. Furthermore, with Fecon Australia – your national supplier of the full range of Fecon forestry equipment – customers throughout Australia receive world-famous forestry machines backed by only the best local service, support, parts and sales.

Perhaps the most legendary member of Fecon Australia’s attachment family is the iconic ‘Bull Hog’ mulching head. Designed to be powerful and versatile, Fecon Bull Hog mulchers are perfectly engineered to suit a wide variety of track and skid steer loaders offering anywhere from 53 up to 191 LPM of hydraulic flow, plus mini and large excavators sized from 5 tonne and above.

Fecon Bull Hogs satisfy the three key requirements in a forestry mulcher: durability, performance, and value for money. Innovative engineering, premium quality steel throughout, reinforced rotors and mulching teeth and exceptional welding processes combine to deliver strength and longevity. Variable motor speeds also maximise the overall performance of Fecon mulchers. For lighter material loads, higher RPM means more bites per second and finer material sizing – whereas with heavier material, the Bull Hog delivers more rotor torque keeping the rotor turning when other heads may stall.

In addition, now available is Fecon Australia’s all-new FTX200 mulching tractor. Engineered as a tough, formidable and versatile tractor running high flow hydraulics, the FTX200 can tackle many different tasks including mulching, tree felling, bucket work, grappling, asphalt grinding, mowing, stump grinding and so much more.

With 200hp under the bonnet, 303 LPM of hydraulic flow, optional winch, steel tracks and a robust D3 undercarriage with its massive 457mm of ground clearance, the FTX200 is a perfect solution for many industries needing a supremely powerful and versatile forestry tractor.

Equally impressive is the comfort and control offered by the FTX200 – within its extremely spacious, ergonomic and climate-controlled cab are easy-to-use joystick controls and a 7-inch touchscreen IQAN controller, allowing operators to control everything from air conditioning, to the intelligent Fecon Power Management System, and machine troubleshooting. Quite simply, you may never find a more comfortable and efficient operator cab on a track loader or dedicated forestry tractor.

Fecon Australia also offers a diverse range of vegetation management attachments, including the revolutionary low RPM Stumpex for skid steers, track loaders and excavators; an auger-style stump grinder that uses slower, yet more efficient, grind rotations to minimise mess and deliver a clean end-product. Furthermore, Fecon’s innovative tree shears are perfectly designed and constructed to nimbly shear, lift, bunch and carry multiple trees with a single attachment, also compatible with CTLs, SSLs and excavators.

Fecon Australia also offer a nationwide parts, service, sales and support network for all machines and attachments, ensuring that any scheduled or unplanned downtime is resolved quickly and easily. Don’t wait weeks for replacement parts or service requests as is standard for many forestry equipment suppliers in Australia – Fecon Australia will have your support needs catered to swiftly and efficiently.
