Mulchers for Excavators
Available in the following versions: BL1/EX, BL1/EX/VT 

The BL1/EX forestry mulcher for 4-7.5 ton excavators can shred light vegetation, shrubs and trees up to 12 cm in diameter. The Bite Limiter technology on this head is ideal for high productivity in managing vegetation, with reliably efficient shredding. The head is available in the VT version and in the no-drain fixed gear motor version. The BL1/EX can be equipped with BL/MINI blades and C/3/MINI teeth.

VT (Variable Torque) piston motor

The VT (Variable Torque) piston motor significantly improves mulcher performance, increasing mulching torque when an extra boost of power is needed and minimizing the conditions for rotor stalling. The VT motor assists the operator with mulching, allowing for exceptional performance.

Bite Limiter rotor

The experience of the FAE Group has given rise to a new line of professional mulchers for excavators equipped with Bite Limiter technology.

The Bite Limiter rotor features special profiles in Hardox wear-resistant steel, guaranteeing an optimal cutting depth from the blades (BL/MINI, BL, BL/MAX).

This reduces the demand for power and facilitates a consistent working speed, leading to excellent performance when mulching any type of wood. The Bite Limiter also reduces the likelihood of rotor stalling and optimizes fuel consumption.
