Fecon has expanded its line of attachments with the launch of the Disc Hawk disc mulcher. Specifically designed for high-flow skid steers and compact track loaders, the attachment can be used for mulching, landscaping, site preparation and land clearing. Fecon’s disc mulcher enables first-pass vegetation removal or material dispersion without fine chip size.
“We’re excited to expand our lineup of disc mulchers to provide customers with yet another viable tool in their toolbox to help them get the job done right,” said Mark Middendorf, Fecon’s executive vice president of sales. “This new disc mulcher is a game-changer for contractors looking to increase their productivity in large land clearing operations.”
With a working width of 60 in., the disc mulcher is purpose-built for 75- to 132-hp skid steers and compact track loaders that operate with as little as 30-50 gallons per minute (gpm) of auxiliary hydraulic flow. The unit provides performance for mulching thick vegetative material at high speeds. A low-profile motor and deck configuration provides visibility and reduces material buildup.
This attachment features configurable discharge and intake chutes. The open brush chute features a large throat allowing for high material intake and processing of light vegetation-like brush. Conversely, the hardwood intake chute guides large trees into the disc. Used in applications where material dispersion is preferred, such as in fire fuel prevention, the broadcast discharge chute is for distributing material over large areas. Similarly, the processing discharge chute supports mulching of fine material with dispersion back towards the ground for agriculture or farm site preparation.
The mulcher attachment features 24 bottom tools, 12 edge knife tools and eight top tools, along with optional Carbide tools to minimize wear and enable performance near rocky terrain.
An adjustable push bar highlights the attachment’s adaptability, allowing operators to toggle between degrees of disc engagement, depending on the application. For example, in the forward position, the push bar guides small debris into the disc. Having the push bar in the furthest back position exposes more of the mulching disc for processing of large trees and thick material.
