Fecon debuts BLACKHAWK mulcher

The new product was designed specifically for knife-tool mulching heads in order to streamline work.

March 20, 2020

LEBANON, OHIO – Fecon introduces the BLACKHAWK knife-tool mulching head, which shreds standing vegetation and processes material on the ground. Designed specifically as a knife tool mulcher, every aspect of the BLACKHAWK, including rotor diameter and size, ratio of knifes to rotor, cutting chamber and the hydraulic lines, contribute to maximize its production capacity. Ideal for skid steer and compact tracked loaders with hydraulic flows of 27 to 45gpm, this mulcher features 30 knife tools and has a 76-inch cutting width. It is ideal for clearing brush and vegetation, shredding material in woodland urban interface zones, clearing rights-of-way, lot clearing and clean-up, site preparation and more. 

The machine can shred standing vegetation as well as process materials already on the ground. Because the BLACKHAWK channels material through its cutting cycle, there is minimal draw on the engine, resulting in improved fuel efficiency. Should a rotor stall occur, the unit will immediately recover when extricated from the stall-causing material and be ready to re-engage. Most of the finely chipped material is broadcast forward of the rotor to minimize the re-processing of already shredded material. 

Hydraulic lines have been completely redesigned for better flow through the mulcher. Elimination of 90-degree bends reduces heat buildup in the hydraulic fluid, which allows longer run times and longer service of hydraulic components. Each BLACKHAWK mulcher can be fine-tuned to the specific hydraulic output of its carrier. Adjusting hydraulic displacement of the motor to match hydraulic flow supplied boosts the rotor performance and efficiency. 

Bolt-in wear parts enhance the economy of the BLACKHAWK. Construction includes 5/16-inch thick HS steel cutting chamber with AR steel replaceable wear parts.

Fecon also manufactures tracked carriers and tractors, as well as a range of attachments and other equipment for vegetation management. Their products are sold through equipment dealers and distributors worldwide.
