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

The mulcher for largest excavators, with Bite Limiter technology.

The BL5/EX/VT - BL5/EX/SONIC for 24-36 ton excavators, mulches vegetation up to 16" in diameter and has a working width of 62". 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.
"The BL5/EX/VT has a Variable Torque (VT) motor that delivers a noticeably better performance, increases torque when needed,  minimizes rotor stalling and decreases recovery time. 

Like all FAE products, the sturdy steel frame and the wear-resistant plates inside the crushing chamber provide exceptional durability. Spike Pro bolted-on counter blades produce a very fine mulched material and make maintenance a breeze. The Poly Chain belt drive transmission ensures optimum power transfer and reliability.

The BL5/EX/VT can be equipped with the Sonic system, available only from FAE.  The Sonic system keeps the operating carrier and the FAE mulcher optimally synced with automatic mulcher calibration. It continuously manages the mulcher's hydraulic settings, achieving a significant boost in overall productivity, of up to 30%. The Sonic system also minimizes rotor stalling and shortens recovery time thanks to the quick recovery of the rotor’s rpm. This head can also be equipped with a hydraulic thumb to facilitate the handling of ground material. "

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 (types E, E/HD or 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.

Technology
SONIC

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%.

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.
