Did you know that the Australian Forestry industry is the nation’s second-largest manufacturing sector, with an annual turnover in excess of $23 billion?
Furthermore, the industry contributes between 0.5 and 1 per cent of Australia’s overall GDP per annum. Approximately 67,000 people are directly employed in the forestry and wood manufacture industry, and this is set to continue to rise throughout 2020 and beyond.
It’s a genuinely booming industry – so what better time than now to invest in your own premium quality forestry equipment and expand your business capability?
Fecon Australia – national dealers of the USA’s number 1 selling forestry equipment offers a diverse range of vegetation management machinery, including mulchers for excavators and skid steers, stump grinders, tree shears and versatile mulching tractors. To add to their already renowned product range, Fecon Australia has just released the all-new, highly impressive FTX150 Tracked Forestry Mulcher, continuing on from the very successful FTX128 model.
Engineered and manufactured to withstand the full gamut of mulching conditions, the FTX150 comprises high strength steel construction built tough to last, yet without sacrificing ground pressure. A powerful 140hp 4cylinder water-cooled Cummins 4.5 Engine offers exceptional operating power, whilst a 345 bar 227 liters per minute high flow hydraulic system maximises the performance of any mulcher or other attachment. Moreover, this hydraulic flow is adjustable in-cab for supreme operator versatility and convenience.
The FTX150’s deluxe ROPS/FOPS cab is designed for maximum operator satisfaction – adjustable joystick pods attached to a suspension seat with 4 points of egress ensures maximum ergonomics, and a large touchscreen IQAN display makes machine operation easy and efficient. The cab is also pressurized with heating, defrosting, and air conditioning, delivering premium all-day comfort in any conditions.
A cleverly designed undercarriage offers 410mm of ground clearance, 6.4km/h travel speed, 500mm track width, and an impressively-low 3.7psi of ground pressure – meaning you can work harder, faster and smarter in a range of terrain conditions, with minimal ground disturbance.
Even the minimal servicing procedures and requirements of the FTX150 are remarkable. Large side compartment doors allow easy and complete access to the engine, whilst the moving components of the machine are designed to work longer and more efficiently than other competitor track loaders in its class. The result for owners and operators is the ultimate goal – minimal downtime, reduced costs and maximized productivity.
The FTX150 also comes equipped with a severe duty BH85 Bull Hog mulcher head as standard, designed for fast and clean mulching of even Australia’s most challenging hardwood trees.
As a result, the FTX150 is on track to fast become the most sought-after machine in the Australian forestry and vegetation management industry. Make the smart investment and expand your business capabilities with the innovative, efficient and reliable FTX150 Tracked Forestry Mulcher from Fecon Australia.
