Fecon introduces the FRS15, the latest addition to their lineup of attachments for 16-24 ton excavators. Made of Hardox Steel, this shear attachment provides a 360° rotation, which gives operators more reach and access to the trees and reduces repositioning of machines. A 29.5² blade opening allows the FRS15 to shear trees to 18 inches in diameter, while an accumulator arm allows gathering and continuous shearing of smaller materials.

At a weight of 3420 pounds, this rugged attachment can reach up and down slopes and other hard to reach areas with as little as 34 GPM and 4350 PSI hydraulic pressure. Shear rotation requires just 11 GPM, making it easy and fast to shear, bunch and gather materials. With multiple uses, and faster results, the FRS15 a great tool for land clearing and right-of-way maintenance contractors as well as municipal agencies in land clearing, tree care, and tree thinning applications.
