Mulchers for Excavators
BL5/EX/VT - BL5/EX/SONIC

The mulcher for 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.

Technology
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.

Technology
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 (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.
