Mulchers for Excavators
UMM/EX/VT - UMM/EX/SONIC - UMM/EX/VT/HP - UMM/EX/HP/SONIC

The FAE forestry mulchers for the most powerful excavators.

The UMM/EX/VT - UMM/EX/SONIC - UMM/EX/VT/HP - UMM/EX/HP/SONIC mulchers are great for mulching vegetation and trees with a max. diameter of 16 in and are compatible with excavators from 20 to 36 t. Their hydraulic capacity ranges from 34 to 79 gal/min.
The models are recommended for managing and controlling vegetation in wooded areas, maintaining green spaces, and anywhere a large mulching capacity is required.
The line offers two types of hydraulic motors: the VT motor with automatic variable displacement and increased torque and the SONIC motor, a FAE exclusive that optimizes performance and can be easily managed using the dedicated FAE App for smartphone.
The Poly Chain belt transmission guarantees optimum power transfer and reliability over time. The bolted counter blades work to finely mulch the material being processed and make maintenance easier. 
Its strong steel structural frame guarantees excellent reliability over time. The mulching chamber also features welded protections made of an anti-wear material.
The large type “C” rotor that comes standard lets you attach different tooth models designated for various types of vegetation and uses.  The rotor also comes with side teeth, which help keep the crushing chamber clean at all times.

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.

Technology
App FAE

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.
