FAE is expanding its line of forestry mulchers with Sonic technology for excavators to include the new BL2/EX/SONIC, UML/HY/SONIC, UMM/EX/SONIC and UMM/EX/HP/SONIC models.

With these new models, FAE completes its line of forestry mulchers with Sonic technology for excavators, which now includes nine models, for excavators ranging from eight to 36 tons: BL2/EX/SONIC, UML/HY/SONIC, BL3/EX/SONIC, UML/EX/SONIC, BL4/EX/SONIC, UML/S/EX/SONIC, BL5/EX/SONIC, UMM/EX/SONIC, and UMM/EX/HP/SONIC.

FAE’s exclusive Sonic system ensures that the operating carrier and the FAE mulcher are completely aligned by automatically calibrating the mulcher’s parameters. The system continuously manages the mulcher’s hydraulic settings for a significant boost in overall productivity of up to 30 per cent. The Sonic system also minimizes rotor stalling and shortens recovery time thanks to the quick recovery of the rotor’s rpm.

FAE’s Sonic technology comes standard on the UML/SSL/SONIC forestry mulcher for skid steers. It is also available for the FAE PT-175 tracked carrier equipped with the FAE 140/U forestry mulcher and on the PT-300 with the 200/U or 300/U forestry mulchers. Learn more at:
