Features

FTX250 Mulching Tractor Overview

The purpose built FTX250 is designed for particularly difficult applications. Its Super Low Ground Pressure feature allows this mulching carrier to go where the others cannot. Less ground disturbance, a lighter footprint and aggressive travel speeds get you in and out of difficult terrain, while maintaining high productivity. With the advantage of loader arms, low profile design, and the reliability of Cummins power, this Fecon tractor is in a class of its own.

The unique undercarriage provides excellent ride quality and contour following characteristics to keep the track on the ground and reduce bridging. Steel cross link tracks and raised sprockets give the approach angles and low ground pressure needed in soft ground applications. Service access through large engine bay doors reduces required maintenance time. The FTX250 lifting gear provides reach for large brush clearing and tree cutting. Storm and flood areas are no challenge for the tub style frame designed when operating in wet areas when there is no other way. With rugged design, and super low ground pressure, the FTX250 leads where others cannot follow and keeps you on top.

Applications

  • 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.

  • Seismic Exploration

    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.

  • Vegetation Clearing

    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

    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.

  • Right of Way Clearing

    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.
