SMS Equipment to carry Fecon

Jan. 2015 – SMS Equipment has announced that it will carry Fecon’s full lineup of equipment at its outlets throughout Canada.

Fecon is well-known for innovative and proven attachment technology, including its signature Bull Hog line that features several configurations for skid steers, PTO tractors and excavators. Traditional drum and innovative depth-control rotor systems are available to match individual users’ clearing, right-of-way, pasture and wildlife restoration and other applications.

“High performance Mulchers are used to clear as much acreage as possible in the shortest amount of time,” said SMS West’s Gary Brown, General Manager, Construction Equipment Sales. “With Fecon units, customers can increase their production compared to traditional mulching heads. Bull Hog excavator attachments work well with Komatsu excavators for clearing trees, as do other Fecon attachments, such as its log-jaw wood splitter and tree shears.”

One solution that will be a fit for SMS Equipment that Fecon carries is a line of track drills for seismic and geothermal applications. The Fecon Explorer Series EX300S is a rubber track drill rig that is designed to meet the needs of the growing seismic industry. Built with the highest quality components, the EX300S is equipped with many state of the art features.

Additional Fecon attachments include deck mowers, stump grinders and a line of Soil Hog mills. Soil Hog mills are available in either PTO or hydraulic models and can be used for soil conditioning, felling trees, loosening topsoil and additional tasks in forestry, agriculture and other applications.

Attachments can be mounted on practically any brand of equipment, including Fecon’s own tracked and rubber-tired mulching tractors. Fecon also makes tracked utility vehicles that cross all terrains with low ground pressure for forestry, drilling and spraying work and have bed plates to mount work equipment; biomass harvesters for chipping that can be customized for on or off-road vehicles; and portable orbit screens that separate materials.

“We are very proud to incorporate Fecon’s line of equipment into our dealer solutions and we have already begun our partnership with all the staff at Fecon. Their products are an ideal complement to our current product offerings and we are eager to introduce this line of equipment into the Canadian marketplace,” said Bruce Knight, President and CEO, SMS Equipment.
