Mulchers for Excavators

Forestry mulcher with Bite Limiter technology.

FAE introduces a new line of professional mulchers for excavators equipped with Bite Limiter technology.
Special steel limiter rings limit the depth of blade action, reducing the demand for power, guaranteeing speed and exceptional performance.
The BL1/EX - BL1/EX/VT (for 4-7.5 t excavators) has a 31 in working width and can mulch logs up to 5 in diameter.
The piston engine (with manually controlled variable displacement) makes it easy to use this mulcher on different excavators with different oil flow rates.
The BL1/ EX-BL1/EX/VT has a rotor equipped with a heat-treated forged steel tooth holder, together with Type Mini BL blades.
This light, compact mulcher is easy to maneuver and perfect for various types of forestry work.

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 (MINI BL BLADE)

The experience of the FAE 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 (types MINI BL).

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.
