What do you imag­ine when you think of a mulching trac­tor? Tough? Pow­er­ful? Durable? Big, but not too big? Chew­ing through trees like they’re made of pa­per?

If so, then you’re pic­tur­ing a Fe­con FTX128. Fe­con’s most pop­u­lar mulching trac­tor is now avail­able for sale or long-term rental Aus­tralia-wide.

The high per­for­mance Fe­con FTX128 is ex­pertly de­signed to de­liver proven per­for­mance on par with larger trac­tors – all in a ver­sa­tile, fu­el­ef­fi­cient, com­pact de­sign. Pack­ing a 4.5L Tier

III Cum­mins en­gine, which has been tuned to de­liver max­i­mum torque with min­i­mal revs, the FTX128 out­puts 128hp and 546Nm of torque, to power through what­ever you can throw at it. Top qual­ity Rexroth pumps power the hy­dro­static drive sys­tem, and de­liver 4,500 psi of hy­draulic pres­sure at 227 litres per minute, with a pur­pose built cool­ing pack­age de­signed to han­dle even the tough­est of Aus­tralian con­di­tions.

The FTX128 has been de­signed with the op­er­a­tor in mind, from cab to un­der­car­riage. Boast­ing ex­cel­lent vis­i­bil­ity to the work­ing area, the sealed and pres­sured op­er­a­tor sta­tion is quiet and com­fort­able, with sim­ple and in­tu­itive ma­chine con­trols. Rugged loader arms with a stan­dard skid steer quick at­tach and ex­cep­tional reach and tilt ca­pa­bil­i­ties are a stand­out fea­ture of the FTX128, putting the ma­chine in class of its own. The unique de­sign pro­vides much more ver­sa­til­ity for the owner com­pared to other mulching trac­tors, as the FTX128 can be eas­ily equipped with any stan­dard skid steer at­tach­ment, in­clud­ing buck­ets, stump grinders, or log grap­ples.

In-cab hy­draulic flow ad­just­ment is stan­dard, and an ad­vanced IQAN ma­chine con­trol sys­tem ef­fi­ciently bal­ances hy­draulic de­mand be­tween the cut­ting head and track sys­tem, al­low­ing the FTX128 to climb steep gra­di­ents while en­sur­ing it re­mains ex­tremely pro­duc­tive in even the most dif­fi­cult of con­di­tions. A lighter foot­print than com­peti­tor trac­tors of only 3.8 psi en­sures min­i­mal ground dis­tur­bance and an over­all cleaner site af­ter job com­ple­tion.

The FTX128 also of­fers more ef­fi­cient main­te­nance to re­duce ser­vice time and in­crease pro­duc­tive time on the job. The in­tel­li­gent cabchas­sis has been de­signed to pro­vide best in class ser­vice­abil­ity, with mul­ti­ple wide open­ing ser­vice doors all around guar­an­tee­ing easy ser­vice ac­cess. The unique de­sign en­sures easy ac­ces­si­bil­ity of all daily ser­vice checks, with sim­ple ground level ac­cess to all daily in­spec­tion points and fil­ters. The swing out cool­ing pack­age de­sign greatly sim­pli­fies clean­ing, pro­vid­ing un­re­stricted ac­cess to both sides of the cool­ing pack.

The FTX128 is avail­able in ‘L’ (steel track) and ‘R’ (rub­ber track) mod­els to suit any re­quire­ments. The FTX128L fea­tures stan­dard 20-inch sin­gle grouser track shoes, with op­tional triple grousers also avail­able; Berco com­po­nents are utilised through­out to de­liver long life and max­i­mum per­for­mance. The FTX128R has a unique rub­ber tracked un­der­car­riage pro­vid­ing ex­cel­lent trac­tion and flota­tion, while in­creas­ing ver­sa­til­ity and fur­ther re­duc­ing en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact.

Made in the USA, the Fe­con FTX128 Mulching Trac­tor has an ex­cep­tional build qual­ity that has come to be ex­pected from this global mulching leader. Fe­con Aus­tralia also sup­plies many sup­ple­men­tary forestry and con­struc­tion re­lated at­tach­ments to make the FTX128 the best choice for mulching, tree shear­ing, stump grind­ing and site clear­ing.

The FTX128 out­puts 128hp and 546Nm of torque, to power through what­ever you can throw at it.
