Fecon Adds More Horsepower to Redesigned Mulching Tractor

May 25, 2021
The FTX150-2 features 10 percent more mulching power.

Fecon introduces the redesigned, and re-powered FTX150-2 Mulching Tractor that delivers cutting and track power.  A Cummins 3.8L Tier 4, Stage 5 engine delivers 10% more HP, and the hydraulic system provides 60 GPM with a dedicated circuit to the attachment. 

This upgraded forestry tractor also features high-strength steel construction for greater durability, a more open engine compartment with large doors for ease of service and a cooling system designed specifically for mulching.  The spacious cab includes excellent operator visibility, in-cab adjustable flow for attachment versatility with pre-sets, and a 7-in. touchscreen IQAN display.  The purpose-built Fecon FTX150-2 Mulching Tractor is suitable for all forestry mulching applications, from large-scale right-of-way maintenance to vegetation management and lot clearing jobs, it is designed for any land clearing project.

With a Stage 5 engine that delivers 155 peak HP, the FTX150-2 has plenty of power to tackle the toughest forestry mulching projects, yet with Fecon Green biodegradable fluid it is suitable for working in sensitive locations.  The Fecon Power Management system automatically monitors and maintains engine power for maximum production in all types of mulching conditions.

The simpler, single can after treatment is simple to use and maintain.  The more open engine bay design allows easy access to maintenance items.  With insulation in the can, there is no need for blankets. 

Purpose built for durability in demanding applications, the FTX150-2 features a cooling system designed specifically for mulching applications.  The larger cooler compensates for a higher duty cycle, while wider fins prevent clogging. 

The larger cab features keyless operation, and automatic climate control to keep operators comfortable and productive despite extreme environments.  A touchscreen display allows operators to control all machine functions with ease, including a remote fuse panel, integrated time clocks and a high flow counter to better determine operating hours on the cutting head.  

The FTX150-2 is designed for safety as well as production, with pin on attachments for safety and durability.   A standard rear-view camera and increased cab visibility allow operators virtually increased visibility.

The FTX150-2 has the power to complete the toughest forestry mulching projects yet is nimble in the field, according to the company.  A video demonstration of the FTX150-2 may be viewed at https://bit.ly/3vqw3NB.
