January 23, 2023  By FAE

FAE increases the productivity and efficiency of the BL5/EX forestry mulcher for excavators with the new BL MAX blade.

The new BL MAX blade is the ideal addition to the king of FAE’s mulchers for excavators with Bite Limiter Technology. This technology reduces power demand and promotes a consistent working speed, for excellent performance mulching any type of wood.

The new BL MAX blade features a large cutting surface, an optimized profile, ultra-strong built materials, and special heat treatments that make it extremely efficient for shredding. The BL MAX blade can be sharpened to extend the life of the tooth.

The BL5/EX can mulch logs up to 16” in diameter. It works with 24–36-ton excavators and has a working width of 63 inches.


This machine can be equipped with FAE’s exclusive Sonic System, which keeps the operating machine and the FAE mulcher seamlessly aligned by automatic calibration. Every FAE user can easily access this technology with the FAE app for iOS and Android. The Sonic System continuously manages the mulcher’s hydraulic settings for a significant boost in overall productivity of up to 30 per cent.

The new BL MAX blade is also an optional tooth for the 200/U forestry mulcher, which is available for the FAE PT-300 tracked carrier and other special high horsepower vehicles.
