Mulchers for Skid Steers
Available in the following versions: BL1/SSL/VT 

The BL1/SSL/VT forestry mulcher for 45 to 65 hp skid steers can shred material up to 4 inches diameter. The Bite Limiter technology on this head is ideal for high productivity in managing vegetation, with reliably efficient shredding. The head is designed to guarantee high reliability and make maintenance easier. The high-visibility profile helps the operator optimize their work. The BL1/SSL/VT can be equipped with  blades and C/3/MINI teeth.

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.

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 (BL/MINI, 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.

Spike Pro

Spike Pro: the counter blades that help FAE forestry mulchers handle any kind of vegetation more efficiently. Spike Pros are interchangeable offset counter blades for finer shredding and smoother flow of wet material. The special design makes them efficient with very stiff wood and more flexible shrubs.
