Line maintenance / utility equipment: Fecon® Inc. introduces the Depth Control Rotor system (DCR), bringing a new level of performance and value to mulching, controlling the depth of bite and efficiently directing material flow so energy is reserved for production. DCR cuts faster, delivering better fuel economy and more uniform particle size. The DCR system is an evolution that builds on Fecon’s reversible Samurai Knife Tool.
Depth control rings of the DCR system work in harmony with the Samurai Knife to enable more cutting with less HP. The shape of the Samurai knife edge efficiently slices as it chips, providing greater forgiveness on rock than straight-edged tools or saw teeth. Depth control rings lend further impact protection to the tool body, and reduces shock loading to the mechanical or hydraulic drive line. DCR will be available in skid steer model mulching attachments and most PTO and hydraulic prime mover models in 2014.
Fecon Inc. was established in 1992 near Cincinnati, Ohio. Fecon’s Bull Hog is currently the #1 selling forestry mulcher. Fecon also provides track carriers and other equipment for vegetation management, geothermal, seismic, and wood to energy biomass industries.
