Fecon’s® Soil Hog milling attachments are well suited to milling compacted soil, stumps, and roots, or to blend in stabilizing materials or additives to improve the soil. The Soil Hogs can also be used to fell and incorporate standing trees into the ground if desired. The Soil Hog is ideal for loosening top soil, or milling fields of stumps and roots in order to convert land into tillable acres for alternative crops, preparing for construction or pipelines, and creating ideal planting beds for crops such as blueberries, fruit, nut or Christmas trees, or to incorporate organics back into the soil during rehabilitation of forest land following wildfire.
Fecon Milling Attachments achieve ideal results in land preparation for agriculture, forestry, and development. Eliminate multiple steps that are costly and time consuming to provide a finely milled blend of soil, and organics including stumps, roots, and slash. Go a step further by incorporating stabilizing or remediation materials when a homogeneous mix is crucial. Fecon offers multiple models to provide the width, depth and power class to serve many applications on either PTO or Hydraulic carriers. Rotor diameters range from 28”-40” and can be operated at 110 to 440 hp. to mill up to 20” deep. Rotor direction can be configured to the type of carrier and primary direction of operation can be set for desired results leading to faster production and finer material. PTO-powered models include adjustable depth shoes, compacting roller, an overrunning slip clutch, and a synchronized pivoting gear box that allows a broad range of motion to operate smoothly at various depths. Hydraulic models offer a hydraulic trap door to help contain debris, and, like the PTO models, the hydraulic models have adjustable skid shoes and chisel-shaped carbide rotovator tools. Fecon’s rotovator tools are highly effective at processing wood in the soil with abrasion-resistant characteristics and forgiveness to rock. The innovative HDT paddle style rotor utilizes fewer carbide tools compared to most drum-style systems to provide lower hourly operating costs without sacrificing results. The patented rotor system and carbide cutting tools reduce and blend soil, wood and organic material while having durability and wear characteristics necessary for the challenges of sub-soil work. Strong drive lines with reliable belt tensioning systems efficiently deliver power to the rotor while providing long-lasting durability. Durable Rotor Carbide tipped tools, heavy steel plate, AR400 abrasion protection, and an aggressive configuration produce impressive results.

Stabilization of soils on construction sites can be performed with milling attachments and wheeled or track vehicles. Fecon’s durable Soil Hog is built tough to blend in stabilizing materials or additives to improve the soil, with an impressive production rate.
Selecting the compact tractor or the large mulching tractor can be determined by first looking at the type of work to be done and the type of terrain most commonly found in the area you’re working. Proper selection of attachments and undercarriage options can prove to be very profitable decisions for any type of right-of-way clearing machines.
Clearing the land, for exploration leases, storage sites, or pipelines can present challenges. The successful land-clearing contractor will usually approach the job with a variety of units including tracked or wheeled mulching machines, excavator mulchers and skid steer tractors equipped with mulching attachments as well as other tools to handle the many tasks found on the average land-clearing site.
Maintaining right-of-way for roads, highways, power lines, communication lines, and other utilities has its share of challenges. The demands of the job the difficulty of the terrain, finish, and maintenance requirements, will determine the equipment selected for the job. Proper selection of attachments and undercarriage options can prove to be very profitable decisions for any type of right-of-way clearing machines.
Silviculture is the process of maintaining and improving forests. Many operators wish to mulch logging slash or standing vegetation and trees to prepare land for reforestation. One can use milling attachments of varying widths and power classes to reduce and incorporate slash and mulched material into established planting berms, or for establishing ideal planting conditions in between thinned forest stands.
Fecon products are used for clearing vegetation for utility right-of-ways (ROW), roadside clearing, removal of invasive species, removal of wood fuels in the forest, and silviculture to maintain and improve forests.
