Make Your Mulcher a Multitasker

Fecon now offers an optional thumb receiver for severe-duty excavatormounted Bull Hog Forestry Mulchers. The Bull Hog can now be used to move and position logs, slash, stumps or rock by using the receiver in conjunction with the thumb of an excavator. Serrated bars mounted on the end of the Bull Hog provide enhanced grip for the thumb, making the operator more versatile and productive. This newly expanded capability in excavator mulching is well suited for land clearing, forestry thinning, fuel load reduction in the wildfire urban interface, or on wetland construction projects. The thumb receiver option is available for Fecon’s BH40EXC, BH80EXC, and BH200EXC Bull Hog models.

Updated Skid Steers

Case Construction Equipment announced its industry-leading line of skid steer loaders that meet the federal Tier 4 Final emission standard with upgrades to four products in its Alpha Series line. Leading the way are the popular Case SR175 and SV185 medium-frame skid steers, which meet the mandate with new engine technology and a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) solution only. The SR130 and new SR160 compact frame skid steers meet Tier 4 Final status using the more typical cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR) with diesel particulate filter (DPF). Additionally, the large frame SR220 and SV250 skid steers move to Tier 4 Interim with CEGR and DPF technology. The SR175 and SV185 skid steers are updated with a new ISM diesel four-cylinder turbocharged and after-cooled engine with a high-pressure common rail (HPCR) fuel system design and electronic controls.
