Gradall Track Star With Fecon Bull Hog Mulcher Tames Railway Vegetation

Gradall Track Star with Fecon Bull Hog Mulcher Tames Railway Vegetation

Gradall Track Star railway maintenance machines fitted with a Fecon Bull Hog mulcher quickly shred all kinds of vegetation encountered along railways. The full-tilting, telescoping Gradall boom can reach virtually any vegetation, whether trackside or in the canopy. The powerful Bull Hog quickly shreds materials, clearing brush, limbs, debris, trees and other vegetation. Bull Hog models available include the heavy duty CEM36 and the BH40EXC for severe duty applications. Both models feature a 36-inch cutting width and 18 cutting tools. With a telescoping boom rather than an articulating arm, the Gradall allows unrestricted access, while the low profile allows easy transport through tunnels and catenary systems. The Gradall and Bull Hog™ combination is ideal for maintenance of way/vegetation management projects on railroads of all types.

In addition to mounting the Bull Hog on Gradall Track Star bodies, the team at MacAllister Railroad Machinery can also supply CAT 308, 314, 320, and 325 excavators with Hi Rail packages for on track vegetation management and maintenance of way applications. The company offers sales, rental, leasing and service, including 24-hour emergency service 7 days a week.
