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!
The BB1208 Bark Blower is ideal for big mulching projects like residential and commercial mulch beds, slopes, public gardens, playgrounds, amusement parks, sports field overseeding, erosion control/berms, mall interiorscapes, and other applications that need precise placement of bulk materials. This BB1208, with its 8.2 cubic yard capacity will allow our customer to convey heavier materials and accommodate larger job sites. Questions about our FINN equipment lineup? We’re here to help.
Martin Implement hosted FINN Corporation’s erosion control expert, John Tucker, this week for demos of the FINN BB5 bark blower. John showed the finer points of the machine and demoed erosion control techniques. We were glad to have him around! Thanks to everyone else that participated. Here’s some footage:
The BB 5-Series is an ideal tool for mid-size mulching projects where hand labor just won’t cut it. Mulch was applied on this Arlington Heights playground using the BB 5-Series bark blower. Mulch, bark, soil blends and compost can be applied on virtually any terrain, even in wet conditions, and the BB 5-Series can be especially profitable when accessing hard-to-reach areas.
We hope you were able to get up close to see the blower in action and to see in person how much more productive a bark blower can make you on projects. If you have any questions on FINN products, contact us at any one of our three locations. We rent and sell FINN equipment.

Martin Implement will be hosting FINN Corporation’s erosion control expert, John Tucker, throughout next week beginning on April 27th. There will be demonstrations of the FINN BB5 bark blower. John will be on-site to showcase the finer points of the bark blower and to demo erosion control techniques. John helps us at Martin Implement for questions about erosion control, so we’re excited to have him with us onsite! Continue reading →
This coming Thursday (September 6th) Martin Implement will be hosting a demonstration of the FINN BB1208 truck-mounted bark blower at our Orland Park location. Erosion control expert James Loneman of FINN Corporation will be on site to showcase the finer points of the bark blower as well as demonstrate erosion control techniques, including the compost filter sock. James has been a go-to for us at Martin Implement for any and all questions about erosion control so we’re excited to have him on hand to demonstrate and educate! The bark blower will be on our lot from 10am – 2pm so make sure you clear your schedule! You don’t want to miss this! Continue reading →
Are you still mulching with a wheelbarrow and shovel? Do you ever wonder about how much more work you could get done if you reduced some of your hand labor? The Finn bark blower can be a valuable addition to landscapers looking to increase margins by cutting down labor and material costs (and what landscaper isn’t looking for that?). Continue reading →
