Fecon Bull Hog Attachments Now Available for Excavators Fecon has introduced five new Bull Hog® mulching attachment models for excavators. They are available for operation with 55 to 500 hydraulic horsepower to process both large and small diameter material.
Attachment models range from the BH40EXC, made for small excavators or larger, long-reaching machines working in remote areas, to the BH350EXC, the most powerful and productive model. All models are factory-equipped with hydraulic motors.
The durable, versatile Bull Hog enables excavators to mulch standing or fallen trees, brush, shrubs and stumps up to 24 inches in diameter. It quickly grinds wood and vegetation. Applications include land clearing, right-of-way construction and maintenance, storm water drainage area maintenance, forestry, and reducing wildfire risk near urban areas.
The Bull Hog uses individual, fixed-position, carbide-tipped cutting tools that have a tool life of 300 to 500 hours. The tool design reduces service time and operating costs.
Fecon engineering support is available at no charge to pre-approve compatibility of a Bull Hog for the full range of excavator models and sizes.
For more information, contact Fecon at (800) 528-3113, fax (513) 956-5701, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or Web site at www.fecon.com.
