In this new series on Fully Equipped, we dive a little deeper into the benefits of some of our favorite labor-saving machines.
MULCHING MAKES IT BETTER Here’s the thing: the FECON BULL HOG mulchers can cut brush, stumps and trees up to 8 inches in diameter (cutting them down to ground level). Trees and brush truly get mulched –which means you eliminate the need to do a lot of follow-up work. Chain saws, chippers, and the people required to run them…all disappear from your job-costs, just like the BULL HOG erasing a gnarly stand of trees and tangled brushes.
RIGHT MODEL FOR THE JOB Fecon and Martin Implement offer BULL HOG models that can work beautifully when hooked up to a compact track loader (with high-flow hydraulics). We also carry their FMX BULL HOGS, which are designed to use when you have to have the greater reach of an excavator. Attaching these mulchers to tracked machines allow you to maneuver in more variable terrain than you can access with a PTO / 3 Point setup on a tractor. Check out the FMX50 in action on this video — you don’t want to try this with a tractor!
We hooked one up to a Kubota SVL95-2s high flow compact track loader to clear lots for new construction!
We get people calling from all over asking to rent the Fecon Mulcher attachment because it’s hard to find a mulcher that can tear up 8-inch trees while attached to a track loader. Those results plus portability make it an in-demand attachment. Due to their popularity, our Rental Department has worked up a new special on them. From right now until the end of February, rent a Fecon mulcher compact track loader combo for one day and get half off the second day!* Continue reading →
Will it Mulch? With the FECON BULL HOG, the answer is YES. If you’re thinking about blazing a trail, widening a road, or clearing a bramble-clogged path or roadside, you’ll want to grab a cup of coffee and watch this video of Martin Implement customer Bart Gilliam. Bart keeps the city of Matteson well-groomed and used a dynamic duo you can rent from Martin Implement: the FECON BULL HOG (FMX50), paired with the Kubota KX080 Excavator. Power and versatility from Kubota, combined with a rugged FECON attachment designed to do exactly this kind of job. The end result is poetry in motion…
WARNING: several saplings meet their maker in this graphic video!!
If you’re wondering if you could use the BULL HOG to wrassle that stump or make mincemeat of the brush pile outback, Bart has a few words for you: Continue reading →

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. The Bull Hog requires more hydraulic power than most attachments, so we hook it up to a compact track loader with enhanced high flow hydraulics. Continue reading →
