by editor

Fecon is world renowned for building the toughest, most efficient forestry equipment in the industry. Engineered and constructed with unmatched durability and power to tackle even the hardest Australian timbers, Fecon forestry equipment continues to dominate the Australian market for quality, performance, and value.

In addition to Fecon Australia’s already legendary ‘Bull Hog’ range of mulching heads for excavators and skid steers, new to the Fecon forestry line-up is the all new FTX150-2 forestry mulching tractor.

Primarily conceived for forestry work, its versatile and powerful design results in the FTX150-2 being a highly adaptable large track loader that is also capable of many projects outside the forestry scope. Engineered and manufactured to withstand the full range of mulching demands, the FTX150-2 comprises a high strength, heavy duty steel construction built tough to last, yet without sacrificing ground pressure. A colossal 155hp 4-cylinder water-cooled Cummins F3.8 engine offers extraordinary operating power, and a 227 litres per minute, 5000 psi high flow hydraulic system maximises the performance of any mulcher, slasher, grinder, or other attachment. Moreover, this premium hydraulic flow is quickly and easily adjustable in-cab for ultimate operator convenience.

The FTX150-2’s deluxe ROPS/FOPS cab is designed by operators for operators – adjustable joystick pods attached to a suspension seat with four points of egress results in absolute comfort, and a large touchscreen IQAN display makes machine operation easy and efficient at the press of a button. The spacious cab is also pressurised with heating, defrosting and air conditioning, delivering all-day every-day comfort for operators.

An expertly designed D3 undercarriage offers 533mm of ground clearance, 6.4kph travel speed, 500mm track width and an impressively-low 4.8psi of ground pressure – meaning you can work harder, faster, and longer in a range of terrain conditions, with minimal ground disturbance.

Even the reduced servicing procedures and requirements of the FTX150-2 are remarkable. Large side compartment doors allow effortless and thorough 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 objective in any machine – minimal downtime, reduced costs, and maximised productivity.

The FTX150-2 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 timbers.

As a result, the FTX150-2 is on track to become the most coveted machine in the Australian forestry and vegetation management industry. Make a smart investment and expand your business capabilities with the versatile, efficient, and reliable FTX150-2 Forestry Mulching Tractor from Fecon Australia.
