Mulcher for 6 tonne excavator

Recommended Posts

It only becomes pointless with unrealistic expectations.

If you wish to remove the usual bramble etc and anything up to about 4”, or just have a good old clear up at the end of a job you’ll be fine.

 

I recently worked with a 6 tonne JCB which had a Lipa Flail on, which I know has had an awful lot of hard use with no issues.

I was impressed with it’s performance for a swinging hammer flail, but once I took a look at the actual flails I could see why, as they were absolute monsters!

 

Guys are having great success with the Femac units, Osma from Exac-One have always been good.

FAE if you want to spend that sort of money, simply loads of choice.

 

Best advice is borrow/hire one before you purchase to see if it’ll do what you require?

I use a flail on my 3 tonner, it will do 4” stems but best to leave those bits for the lads with the saw.

Which flail is that Stephen? And what does it get through ‘comfortably’?
