DCR ROTOR SYSTEM
Introducing the Depth Control Rotor (DCR) system.
Our Fecon DCR brings a superior level of performance and value to mulching, controlling the depth of bite and directing material flow so that energy is reserved for production.
The innovative DCR cuts quickly, delivering better fuel economy and more uniform particle size. The DCR system leverages the new and improved reversible Viking Axe knife style cutting tool. The rotor and the tool are paired for optimal performance and long-lasting productivity.
Depth control rings of the DCR system work with the Viking Axe to enable more cutting with less horsepower. The shape of the Viking Axe edge slices as it chips, providing greater forgiveness on rock than straight-edged tools or saw teeth. The improved thicker blade creates a more durable edge, increasing the overall life of the knife. The angle is also easier to sharpen.
In addition, the DCR lends further impact protection to the tool body, and reduced shock loading to the mechanical or hydraulic driveline.
- Severe Duty rotor bearing seal design protects from debris for longer bearing life.
- Forged bolt-on rotor stub shafts.
Our excavator forestry mulchers are equipped with large high performance variable displacement hydraulic motors. Built by Rexroth, these motors are the benchmark for hydraulic quality.
In addition, unlike fixed displacement motors that are used in competitor mulcher heads, Fecon’s variable displacement motors are load sensing. This means they automatically adjust speed and torque ratios in order to minimise drum stall. They are sometimes referred to as 2-speed drive motors.
This significantly increases productivity whilst also reducing hydraulic temperature and fuel burn. The result: maximum efficiency for your Bull Hog excavator mulcher head.
