Equipment Today Top 50 New Products Award

(Lebanon, OH) Fecon LLC announces that their innovative Compact STUMPEX, a slow speed, high-torque, auger style stump grinder has received a 2021 Contractors Top 50 New Products Award from Equipment Today magazine. The award is based on equipment owners and end users product inquiries and web page views from the new products featured in Equipment Today. The Compact STUMPEX and other products selected in the eleventh annual competition are featured in the September issue of Equipment Today magazine.

“We’re excited to receive this award because it is based on feedback – inquiries and web page views – from construction equipment owners and end users, precisely the market that it was designed for,” said Fecon VP of Dealer Development Mike Kucharski. “The Compact Stumpex was engineered to help contractors improve their operations in the field. The recognition is gratifying to everyone involved in the design and manufacture because it validates our product development efforts.”

Designed specifically for Compact Utility Loaders like the Toro Dingo, Bobcat, and others, the Compact Stumpex’ high torque stump grinder eradicates stumps of any species from 4 to 11 inches in diameter in a single plunge (those greater than 11 inches may require multiple plunges). Slow auger speed ensures a safer work environment with faster clean-up. It is ideal for Compact Utility Loaders with 10-20 GPM of hydraulic flow, and 2,000 to 3,000 PSI. This unique product features a powerful robust drive which generates up to 4,000 ft. lbs of torque to tackle any species of wood. The Compact Stumpex is ideal for land clearing contractors, property managers/landowners, farmers, landscapers, tree service companies/arborists, municipalities, parks & recreational facilities, rental facilities, and others seeking to safely remove stumps using a Compact Utility Loader.

Established in 1992 near Cincinnati, Fecon manufactures the Bull Hog® the #1 selling forestry mulcher. They also manufacture tracked carriers and tractors, as well as a full range of attachments and other equipment for vegetation management. Their products are sold through equipment dealers and distributors worldwide.
