FB Heavy Plant has put together the ultimate vegetation management tool, combining the reach mower and flail mulcher. Jobs that would previously have required multiple machines and labourers, can now be completed faster and more effectively by one machine with one operator.
Flail Mowers & Mulchers
The vertical action flail mulching system also has safety benefits over conventional rotary mowers (which tend to throw material out of the machine) and is the only one approved for use in certain areas for highway verge maintenance. The flail mulcher uses a vertical action and mulches material beneath its casing before discharge it evenly across the full cut width. This reduces the windrows often caused by rotary action mowers. The versatility of a flail mower also allows us to mow everything from dense vegetation including weed removal to neatly maintained parklands.
As well as all our larger machines & equipment we have a experienced, qualified ground crews with Zero Turn Ride On Mowers & Brush Cutters, to handle any smaller jobs.
We use a special vegetation cutting, multifunctional piece of equipment containing a reachmower and an interchangeable saw blade. It is capable of reaching up to 6 metres high, can stretch 5 metres and can operate at a depth of 4.5 metres. These machines are extremely robust in construction and are suitable for trimming/mulching/sawing young trees, vines, grass, hedge rows and all other undergrowth. The reach mower can mulch trees up to 250mm in diameter. Changing from reach mower to saw can be completed in 10 minutes ensuring minimal downtime and maximum productivity.
Excavator Power Mulchers
Unlike conventional wood chipping methods, which are time consuming and labour intensive, the Power Mulcher is a one man operation that clears up to one hectare per day. Attached to an Excavator, the Power Mulcher is a breakthrough in engineering that does more than just brush cutting. Now trees up to 300mm and more in diameter are cut in seconds and mulched down to ground level all in one pass.

The Forest King Tree Grab is a multifunctional attachment capable of grabbing, shearing and totally removing trees. The Grab has the ability to reach up to 12 metres. The operator has complete control of the tree being held, ensuring the surrounding trees are not damaged by the falling tree or it's branches, which means that in enviromentally sensitive areas we are able to selectively remove trees with remarkable accuracy.
