Skid Steers Mulchers
Available in the following versions: DML/SSL/VT, DML/SSL/BL/VT, DML/SSL/SONIC, DML/SSL/BL/SONIC

The DML/SSL forestry mulcher, designed for skid steer from 50 to 75 hp, is able to shred material up to 5” in diameter. This head is ideal to have high productivity in vegetation management and provide high shredding capacity in wooded and forestry areas, where the agility and compactness of a skid steer is required. The head is designed to offer high productivity, durability and ease of maintenance for the operator. The DML/SSL is available in VT version with fixed tooth rotor or in BL version with Bite Limiter rotor with fixed blades. For the VT or BL versions, Sonic technology is available, a FAE exclusive.

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%.

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.

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.
