Remote controlled tracked carriers

Compact, remote controlled tracked carrier.

The RCU-55 is FAE's compact tracked carrier that can mulch vegetation up to 12 cm in diameter with the BL1/RCU mulcher  head, and small shrubs and vegetation up to 5 cm diameter with the PML/RCU mulcher head. It is equipped with a 56-hp Kohler engine.
The RCU-55 can work on steep slopes up to 55°.  The heavy-duty undercarriage features a hydraulic variable track system with independent undercarriage frames for maximum stability on steep terrain. The high-profile rubber tracks  combined with the undercarriage’s  triple-flange style oscillating rollers system provides unbeatable traction. The dual hydrostatic transmission makes it easier to manage traction and the attachment.
