The FTX600 is the flagship of the Fecon mulching tractor fleet. An advanced blend of innovation, technology, power and performance, makes the FTX600 the tractor for high-demand, high-production work. To stay ahead of pipeline crews, power line crews and your tightest industry schedules, power, performance and reliability are critical. Performance gained with an oscillating all steel undercarriage and selectable float control, along with the Fecon BH300 hydraulic Bull Hog mulching head sets a new standard in production. Service-oriented design with large compartment doors and service-designed component positioning serve to reduce downtime and PM service time. Keeping downtime to a minimum and boosting production performance to the maximum is how we define reliability. The FTX600 is the mulching tractor that allows the operator to perform his best! Power from 600hp the Cummins QSX15 Tier III engine, combined with Sauer hydraulic pumps controlled by Fecon's Power Management System and an IQAN machine operating system, puts this tractor in the lead on the right of way.

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 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 for right-of-way clearing 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.
There are many equipment options for ladder fuel and underbrush removal including tracked or wheeled forestry mulching machines, mulching attachments and tree shears. Forestry mulchers are a tool to consider for mulching fire lines. And after the fire is out and clean up efforts are under way, it is important to ensure minimal water pollution and soil erosion.
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.
