Fecon, Inc. introduced the Samurai Knife mulching tool, a reversible double-edged tool with an innovative shape, resulting in faster, smoother cutting, finer chip size, and greater production. Unlike many planer-type tools that just chip with a straight edge, the Fecon Samurai has a tapered edge that slices as it chips. It also has a unique splitting element on the body that helps material flow past as it is cut. Together with other geometric advantages, the Samurai delivers as much as 50-percent faster production compared to carbide tools, and offers approximately 80 to 100 hours life per edge. Actual results can vary based on specific operating conditions. The metallurgical make-up of the Samurai provides durability while allowing the edges to be sharpened to maintain peak performance and life. The Samurai knife tool is also interchangeable with carbide tools for Fecon FGT rotors, giving great flexibility for varying jobsite conditions.
