ROTOR SYSTEMS

Fecon Bull Hog forestry mulchers for excavators are available with 2 different rotor systems, which offers versatility and customisability to best suit your needs:

FGT ROTOR SYSTEM

Fecon FGT Rotor for Excavator Mulchers

The FGT rotor system is a fixed tooth drum-style configuration featuring a smooth rotor surface, spiral tool pattern, and innovative tool shape for smooth, efficient cutting.

In addition to outstanding performance, the FGT rotor system is built to last in the most difficult of mulching applications.

Forged tools and tool holders, a V-Back tool fastening system, heavy-wall drum material, and an efficient structural design have been proven in tough applications for thousands of hours with power in excess of 600 HP. Ultimately, the Fecon rotor drum is built tough to last in even the harshest Australian conditions.

  • Single-bolt recessed tool fastening that is secure, and easily serviced from the rear of the tool holder
  • Severe Duty rotor bearing seal design protects from debris for longer bearing life.
  • Forged bolt-on rotor stub shafts
  • Lower profile tool height with smooth rotor surface reduces damage risk, improving mulcher longevity.

Our FGT rotor system can be equipped with multiple tool options, which allows you to quickly configure your mulcher to suit diverse conditions:

  • Standard dual-carbide tools—greatest all-around reliability and performance for most contractors
  • Severe Duty carbides—wear plates added to the body of the Standard Double Carbide
  • Stone tools—the greatest durability and wear characteristics against rock and abrasion
  • The Samurai knife—increased productivity and finer, more consistent chip size
  • The Viking Sword knife—increased productivity with improved durability and a more consistent chip size

DCR ROTOR SYSTEM

Fecon DCR Rotor for Excavator Mulchers

Introducing the Depth Control Rotor (DCR) system.

Our Fecon DCR brings a superior level of performance and value to mulching, controlling the depth of bite and directing material flow so that energy is reserved for production.

The innovative DCR cuts quickly, delivering better fuel economy and more uniform particle size. The DCR system leverages the new and improved reversible Viking Axe knife style cutting tool. The rotor and the tool are paired for optimal performance and long-lasting productivity.

Depth control rings of the DCR system work with the Viking Axe to enable more cutting with less horsepower. The shape of the Viking Axe edge slices as it chips, providing greater forgiveness on rock than straight-edged tools or saw teeth. The improved thicker blade creates a more durable edge, increasing the overall life of the knife. The angle is also easier to sharpen.

In addition, the DCR lends further impact protection to the tool body, and reduced shock loading to the mechanical or hydraulic driveline.

  • Severe Duty rotor bearing seal design protects from debris for longer bearing life.
  • Forged bolt-on rotor stub shafts.

 

HYDRAULIC MOTORS

Our excavator forestry mulchers are equipped with large high performance variable displacement hydraulic motors. Built by Rexroth, these motors are the benchmark for hydraulic quality.

In addition, unlike fixed displacement motors that are used in competitor mulcher heads, Fecon’s variable displacement motors are load sensing. This means they automatically adjust speed and torque ratios in order to minimise drum stall. They are sometimes referred to as 2-speed drive motors.

This significantly increases productivity whilst also reducing hydraulic temperature and fuel burn. The result: maximum efficiency for your Bull Hog excavator mulcher head.

BULL HOG EXCAVATOR ATTACHMENT OVERVIEW
Fecon’s Severe Duty Bull Hog is by far the strongest built excavator mulcher in the industry for the most demanding applications. Heavy Duty Bull Hog models offer excellent durability and lower weight when compared with the Severe Duty models. CEM (Compact Equipment Mulcher) models offer the ideal balance of weight and durability for your excavator and deliver impressive performance on excavators with less power and lifting capacity.

Fecon offers a free engineering evaluation for your carrier. Contact us for an evaluation today so that we can maximize the performance of your attachment to run off of the power and flow of your excavator mulching head. Choose a Fecon Bull Hog for your 5-45 ton excavator and experience fixed tool durability and performance that gets the job done!

Our Severe Duty line is by far the strongest built Excavator Mulching attachment available, built to withstand the down pressure capabilities of larger excavators. Our heavy duty line provides the same mulching performance as the severe duty line. The CEM36 model can provide fixed tool durability and performance on as small as a 7-ton excavator.

Some other benefits that make a Fecon mulcher the ideal choice for your excavator are our 3 rotor systems and many cutting tool options — double carbides, chipper knives, stone tools, and single carbides. Fixed tool durability and aggressive counter cutter rake teeth are features that ensure you have the toughest excavator mulcher head made. The Bull Hog is a low maintenance design and we provide optional mounts that mate to your machine.

You have the option to include variable displacement hydraulic motors that optimize rotor speed and torque for maximum production in small or larger material. Fecon also has power pack options from 170 to 270 hp for dedicated power for higher production and fast cutting on larger diameter material.

FMX Series offers 36″ and 50″ models with a split ring rotor design and knife tools for maximum performance. Designed for 5 – 10 ton excavators from 12 – 40 gpm. This lighter design also allows you to mount on back hoes and side arm booms while still offering Fecons durable, heavy duty design.

Add versatility to your business with Bull Hog mulchers for excavators. The incredible performance and durability of the Bull Hog will lead you to excellent productivity, even in hard-to-reach places. Attached to an excavator, Fecon forestry mulchers are perfect for clearing trees and brush along roadsides, ravines, creeks, riverbanks, and places that could otherwise be difficult to reach.
