Fecon Bull Hog forestry 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. Our 74-inch mulcher has a max flow of 45 gallons per minute and a mouth full of double carbide teeth that have no trouble getting through most wood material.
