Tools rotors

Maximize uptime and productivity across different jobsite conditions with Fecon’s innovative and aggressive FGT, HDT, and DCR Rotor systems—configured for your needs!

FGT and HDT rotors are available in all Bull Hog® models and use the same proven bolt-on stub shafts and bearing systems for long-lasting durability. Fecon offers a variety of tool options to tailor both systems for maximum results in changing conditions. Additionally, the Depth Control Rotor (DCR) system brings a new level of performance and value to mulching, controlling the depth of bite and efficiently directing material flow so that energy is reserved for production. Our DCR cuts faster, delivering better fuel economy and more uniform particle size. Configure a Bull Hog Rotor below, and see the advantages it can deliver to your job site and your productivity.

Fecon FGT, HDT, and DCR Rotors

  • FGT | Drum style rotor and tool system

    The FGT rotor system is a drum-style configuration featuring a smooth rotor surface, spiral tool pattern, and innovative tool shape for smooth, efficient cutting. In addition to outstanding performance, the FGT rotor system is built to last in the severe application of mulching. Forged tools and tool holders, a V-Back tool fastening system, heavy-wall drum material, and an efficient structural design have been proven in tough applications for thousands of hours with power in excess of 600 HP.

    • Single-bolt tool fastening that is secure and easily serviced from the rear of the tool holder.
    • Severe Duty rotor bearing seal design protects from debris for longer bearing life.
    • Forged bolt-on rotor stub shafts.
    • Lower profile tool height and smooth rotor surface — ideal when working in deep snow or in the soil.
    • Lower profile tool height and smooth rotor surface — ideal when working in deep snow or in the soil.

    Fecon’s FGT rotor system can be equipped with four different tool options including three unique carbide options and a knife tool that allows contractors to quickly configure their mulcher to diverse conditions.

    • Standard dual-carbide tools—greatest all-around reliability and performance for most contractors
    • Severe Duty carbides—wear plates added to the body of the Standard Double Carbide
    • Stone tools—the greatest durability and wear characteristics against rock and abrasion
    • The Samurai knife—increased productivity and finer, more consistent chip size

  • HDT | Traditional style rotor and tool system

    The shape of HDT tools, low profile rotor bars, stronger forged tool holder design, and a staggered tool pattern provide excellent mulching performance and durability. In some models, a patented step-tool pattern provides even greater performance. HDT excels in stringy vegetation and where working material into the soil is necessary. With all of these elements combined, the Bull Hog HDT offers optimal cutting efficiency.

    • Standard dual-carbide tools—greatest all-around reliability and performance for most contractors
    • Narrow single carbides—a faster cut with carbide durability and coarser finish
    • Stone tools—the greatest durability and wear characteristics against rock and abrasion
    • The knife—greatest production capability for jobs with low risk of rock or highly abrasive conditions

  • DCR | Depth Controlled Rotor and Tool System

    Introducing the Depth Control Rotor (DCR) system. The Fecon DCR brings a superior level of performance and value to mulching, controlling the depth of bite and directing material flow so that energy is reserved for production. The innovative DCR cuts quickly, delivering better fuel economy and more uniform particle size. The DCR system leverages the reversible Samurai knife tool. The rotor and the tool are paired for optimal performance and long-lasting productivity.

    Depth control rings of the DCR system work with the Samurai knife to enable more cutting with less horsepower. The shape of the Samurai knife edge slices as it chips, providing greater forgiveness on rock than straight-edged tools or saw teeth.

    Depth control rings lend further impact protection to the tool body, and reduce shock loading to the mechanical or hydraulic driveline.
