Fecon Acquires TREEfrogg LLC

Fecon LLC, a leading global manufacturer of heavy-duty site
preparation attachments and forestry accessories, recently acquired TREEfrogg LLC,
a manufacturer of tree trimming saw attachments for skid steers and compact
track loaders. The acquisition expands the right-of-way clearing solutions offered by
Fecon in the forestry mulching and vegetation management industry. Designed to fit
small to midsize carriers, TREEfrogg’s patented tree trimming saws allow landscapers,
landowners and DOT’s to perform tree maintenance with machines they already have
quickly, safely and economically. Fecon will rebrand the saw attachments as Trim Ex.

“We are excited to add the TREEfrogg trimming saws to the Fecon line,” said Jeff Stanley, Fecon’s senior vice president of product development. “This addition expands the offering to our agricultural, rural and DOT customers, giving them a productivity enhancing solution for selective tree trimming.”

The innovative attachments offer the ideal solution for tackling overhanging tree limbs
and other vegetation along easements, right-of-ways, roads, fence rows, paths and other
applications. Cutting faster than a chainsaw bar, the Trim Ex 26S saw attachment features
a 24-inch carbide-tipped forestry blade that spins at 3,000 rpm and operates with standard
flow machines between 10 gpm to 27 gpm with no high flow needed. The operator
hydraulically rotates the saw head from the cab as much as 180 degrees to optimize the
cutting angle and increase productivity. The boom telescopes to 18 feet total length,
which provides a working height of 26 feet. Combined, the high-speed saw, rotating head
and telescoping boom allow the operator to make continuous, clean cuts from one
machine position.

By eliminating the need for chainsaws, bucket trucks or otherwise expensive, dedicated
machinery, the Trim Ex 26S attachment can reduce the often manual labor of tree
trimming to a tenth of its cost. The attachment’s low maintenance is another cost-saving
factor, as it does not have loose chains or require any bar oil for lubrication. Additionally,
no operator components are near the actual cutting apparatus and the assembly allows the
operator to trim from a distance safely inside a cab.

A smaller saw attachment, the Trim Ex 18C, can fit on skid steers with a 1,300-pound
rated operated capacity. Compact in size, the Trim Ex 18C takes up as little as four inches
on the front of an equipment trailer and the boom can be straight, offset to the machine
side or folded for transport. The tree trimmer requires 10 gpm auxiliary flow and has a
10-foot forward reach with an 18-foot working height. Fecon also partnered with the
founder of TREEfrogg to develop and design a dialectric saw attachment, the Trim Ex
26D, which offers added safety when trimming trees around power lines. It is also lighter
in weight than the 26S model.

For over thirty years, Fecon has produced more than 25,000 mulcher heads with a
presence in every continent. The acquisition of the TREEfrogg saw attachments
complements Fecon’s current line of mulching attachments and extends Fecon’s
reputation as a leader in the forestry mulching and vegetation management industry.

Established in 1992 near Cincinnati, Fecon manufactures the Bull Hog®, the #1 selling
forestry mulcher. The company also manufactures tracked carriers and tractors, as well as
a full range of heavy-duty site-preparation attachments and other equipment for
vegetation management. Its products are sold through equipment dealers and distributors
worldwide. For more information: Fecon LLC, 3460 Grant Drive, Lebanon, OH 45036;
