New milling attachment from Fecon Inc.
By Fecon Inc.
May 2, 2013 - Lebanon, Ohio – Fecon Inc.'s new FMA8039 hydraulic powered milling attachment can process roots, stumps and soil up to 20" below grade, and is rated at 260 to 550 horse power.
The weight of the machine (approximately 11,000 lbs) keeps the attachment engaged as carbide tools cut through an 80" wide path of material. The 8039 is suited for treating land already cleared of standing vegetation, often through logging, mulching, or traditional land clearing methods.
Applications include pipeline construction, commercial tree farm construction and preparation planting, converting land into tillable acreage, or land clearing for new construction.
A 39” x 80” large diameter rotor in the attachment has abrasion resistant steel for durability and performance across a wide range of soil conditions. Sixty-four carbide cutting tools provide a balance of performance, wear life, and impact strength in sub-soil applications. Dual hydraulic motors deliver power to the belt-over-gear box driveline to slow the rotor speed, reduce abrasion, and multiply torque to power through material. The standard trap door can be used to help contain and direct material downward, or an optional compacting roller can smooth out and compact the finely milled material.
The FMA8039 milling attachment can be configured with custom mounts, hydraulic motors, and belt ratios to fit many brands of track or wheeled carriers including Fecon’s FTX400 and FTX600 track carriers.
