Rent It: Smooth Drum Fecon Mulcher

Fecon mulchers rule their class when it comes to brush clearing. These mulchers can cut brush, stumps and trees up to 8 inches in diameter (cutting them down to ground level) when hooked up to a high flow skid steer. They’re ideal for site prep, park trails and more. We added a Bull Hog mulcher with a drum-style configuration that has a smooth rotor surface to our rental fleet. It offers less resistance and uses less horsepower when processing wood material. Contact our rental department if you’re interested in a renting this mulcher or have questions. We’re here to help.

FINN Awarded National Purchasing Contract by the NJPA

Take advantage of nationally negotiated pricing and get local equipment support (that’d be us) on FINN’s erosion control and landscape equipment. That’s because FINN has been awarded a national purchasing contract by the National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA).

NJPA serves as a municipal contracting agency for government, education and non-profit organization members. NJPA offers members competitively awarded cooperative contract solutions through industry-leading vendors (like FINN). Through the FINN contract, if you’re a member, you now can purchase HydroSeeders, Straw Blowers, and Bark and Mulch Blowers. We’re proud to carry FINN and these NJPA awarded brands! Question? We’re here to help!

Please Welcome Jim Johnson to our Parts Team!

Jim came aboard as a Parts Associate at our Orland Park location just as February was coming to a close. When he first began working in parts back in 2011, Jim will readily admit that he had a considerable learning curve to familiarize himself with the industry. Fortunately, he jumped at the chance wholeheartedly and was able to quickly earn the trust on his employer, who promoted him to a regional sales rep, and later as store manager.

With a background in automotive parts, Jim embraces the opportunity to move over to equipment industry. He’s eager to meet our customers and to deliver on the exceptional service that they’ve come to expect from Martin Implement. He can be reached at (708) 326-9525 or by email at jimj@martinimplement.com.
