Fecon FTX290 mid-sized mulching tractor with new rotor technology

Fecon added the FTX290, a low-ground-pressure (3.4 psi) tractor with an oscillating steel track undercarriage, providing balanced traction for rough or soft conditions. Like other Fecon tractors, the FTX290 features a spacious cab, operator comfort and ergonomic control layout, as well as maintenance-friendly service access. Powered by a Cummins QSC8.3 290-hp. diesel, the hydraulic flow to the mulching head peaks at 100 gpm. The FTX290 features the Fecon BH120 forestry mulcher with variable speed motors and three optional rotor systems including Fecon’s new Depth Controls Rotor (DCR) technology. Fecon DCR rotors feature the reversible Samurai Knife. The Samurai is incorporated into a depth control design that provides fast cutting in all materials and the most efficient use of horsepower. The cutting, slicing and splitting action of the Samurai Knife as it chips is far more productive than straight-edge tools or saw teeth. This productivity is further enhanced by the Fecon DCR, depth control rings providing fast cutting durability unlike other knife based rotors.
