Applications

  • Bioharvesting

    With the push from the government and the private sector for clean, renewable fuel sources, there are many outlets for woody biomass that were not available in the past. There are many methods to harvest and process this material that were previously prohibitive due to the high cost in certain applications. Slash piles left in the woods and small diameter material are great sources of biomass. And Fecon offers purpose built equipment to enable operators to profitably harvest these sources.

  • Land Clearing

    Clearing the land, for exploration leases, storage sites, or pipelines can present challenges. The successful land-clearing contractor will usually approach the job with a variety of units including tracked or wheeled mulching machines, excavator mulchers and skid steer tractors equipped with mulching attachments as well as other tools to handle the many tasks found on the average land-clearing site.

  • Land Clearing

    Terrain, density of the vegetation, soil stability, moisture, species to be treated, environmental concerns and obstacles to work around are some of the considerations when choosing the right machine for the application. The successful land-clearing contractor will usually approach the job with a variety of units including tracked or wheeled mulching machines, excavator mulchers and skid steer tractors equipped with mulching attachments as well as other tools to handle the many tasks found on the average land-clearing site.

  • Construction
