The mulcher for the largest excavators, with Bite Limiter technology.
The BL5/EX for 24-36 ton excavators, mulches vegetation up to 40 cm in diameter and has a working width of 160 cm. This head is ideal for handling and removing vegetation in wooded areas, especially when a large shredding capacity and fast operational speed is required. The rotor with Bite Limiter technology comes with special wear-resistant steel limiters that
limit the teeth’s reach. This cuts down on power demand, promotes a consistent working speed, optimizes fuel consumption and ensures excellent performance when mulching any kind of wood.

Sonic is a smart, flexible system that automatically calibrates the mulcher’s hydraulic parameters thanks to an operator control box that allows the mulcher to work autonomously and constantly at maximum capacity, in all working conditions. Sonic guarantees perfect harmony between the operating machine and the FAE mulcher, increasing the machine’s performance by 30%.
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.
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 (MINI BL, 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.
Spike Pros: the counter blades that help FAE forestry mulchers handle any kind of vegetation more efficiently. Spike Pros are interchangeable offset counter blades for finer shredding and smoother flow of wet material. The special design makes them efficient with very stiff wood and more flexible shrubs.
The official FAE App is dedicated to FAE customers who own a mulcher with Sonic technology.
The App allows you to verify optimal calibration at the time of field deployment to make the most of the Sonic system, by controlling the rotor speed and the mulching pressure. The app’s integrated diagnostics system and real-time monitoring of the main parameters assist in resolving any problems. The connectivity of the FAE App for Sonic is guaranteed by a dedicated control unit positioned on the head.
