Fecon introduces new deck mulcher

Fecon introduces a family of stout deck mulcher attachments that are wider than conventional deck mulchers, providing more productivity per pass, even in the most demanding environments. Ruggedness and dependability are built in, with attention to detailed design to enhance performance, service life, and safety.  A robust bearing carrier houses a heavy-duty bearing with an oversized shaft.  Specially designed two-sided blades effectively double their service life without having to flip the blade.  A stump-jumper feature allows the Deck Mulcher to ride over stumps without risking bolt shearing; the extra blade mass also increases cutting inertia and enhances performance in thicker materials.  New Fecon Deck Mulchers can mulch smaller materials faster than traditional drum mulchers, making them ideal for right-of-way clearing and maintenance projects, forestry clearing, site preparation, land improvement, highway mulching and maintenance, urban interface, and more.
