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.
Material handling can be accomplished by use of grapples for skid steers, excavators, and PTO tractors. Utility Tracked Vehicles (UTVs) can be used to transport equipment or materials, and provide fuel and mechanical services on the job site.
Seismic exploration on forested land demands performance. “It’s about linear feet or kilometers per day” and requires reliability and horsepower! Fecon machines are purpose built for the unique and challenging set of circumstances for clearing the woody vegetation for seismic exploration.
Selecting the compact tractor or the large mulching tractor can be determined by first looking at the type of work to be done and the type of terrain most commonly found in the area you’re working. Proper selection of attachments and undercarriage options can prove to be very profitable decisions for any type of right-of-way clearing machines.
Maintaining right-of-way for roads, highways, power lines, communication lines, and other utilities has its share of challenges. The demands of the job the difficulty of the terrain, finish, and maintenance requirements, will determine the equipment selected for the job. Proper selection of attachments and undercarriage options can prove to be very profitable decisions for any type of right-of-way clearing machines.
Silviculture is the process of maintaining and improving forests. Many operators wish to mulch logging slash or standing vegetation and trees to prepare land for reforestation. One can use milling attachments of varying widths and power classes to reduce and incorporate slash and mulched material into established planting berms, or for establishing ideal planting conditions in between thinned forest stands.
