Fecon Introduces Narrower Blackhawk BK6218 for Precision Mulching

Fecon introduces the BK6218 forestry mulcher with all of the features of the popular Blackhawk mulcher frame, but in a narrower frame. Ideal for precision mulching, this narrower, more agile version quickly and efficiently shreds standing vegetation and processes material on the ground. Utilizing shear bars and knife tools, the BK6218 creates a consistent chip size the first pass. The cutting chamber is designed to process material going forward or back dragging, without leaving unprocessed material. The 18-in. diameter rotor spools up quickly and minimizes wait times. Ideal for skid steer and compact tracked loaders with hydraulic flows of 30 to 45 gpm, this new mulcher model features 24 knife tools and has a 62-in. cutting width. It is an excellent tool for clearing brush and vegetation, shredding material in woodland urban interface zones, clearing rights-of-way, lot clearing and cleanup, site preparation, and more. 

A compact body design allows increased visibility, while the narrower width improves handling and agility. Because the BK6218 efficiently channels material through its cutting cycle, there is minimal draw on the engine, resulting in significantly improved fuel efficiency. Should a rotor stall occur, the unit will immediately recover when extricated from the stall-causing material and be ready to re-engage. Most of the finely chipped material is broadcast forward of the rotor to minimize the re-processing of already shredded material, further enhancing its efficiency and effectiveness. 

Hydraulic lines have been completely redesigned for better flow through the mulcher. Elimination of 90-degree bends reduces heat buildup in the hydraulic fluid, which allows longer run times and longer service of hydraulic components. Each BK6218 mulcher can be fine-tuned to the specific hydraulic output of its carrier. Adjusting hydraulic displacement of the motor to match hydraulic flow supplied boosts the rotor performance and efficiency. 

Compact track loaders are the most popular category of compact equipment in America. Learn why with loads of track loader features right here.

Bolt-in wear parts enhance the economy of the BK6218. Rugged construction includes 5/16-in. thick HS steel cutting chamber with AR steel replaceable wear parts.
