Oct. 24, 2019 – New Fecon® hydraulic coolers, which are designed to be mounted on compact tracked loader (CTL) and skid steer rooftops, enhance the performance of the carrier by maintaining the hydraulic fluid at optimal temperatures and viscosity.
The durable all-steel design weighs approximately 185 pounds plus mounting brackets, with adjustable mounting rails for varying mounting positions. Two 11-inch thermostatically controlled electric cooling fans cycle on when needed to mitigate rising hydraulic fluid temperatures. A bypass relief is included for cold oil starts. These compact units fit atop virtually all CTLs and SSLs, handle flows up to 48 gpm, and provide up to 120,000 BTU/hr of cooling capacity. Toolless, hinged lid and removable intake screens speed and simplify maintenance. Fecon hydraulic coolers are ideal for compact track loaders and skid steers of all sizes.
The Fecon hydraulic cooler is an advantageous complement to any CTL or SS mounted Bull Hog. Fecon currently offers some carrier/model specific mounting kits for their coolers and they continue developing more brand and model specific installation kits as sales proceed. Hydraulic coolers, installation kits and Bull Hog mulching heads can be purchased through Fecon’s North American dealer network and through the company’s parts department.
Established in 1992 near Cincinnati, Fecon manufactures the Bull Hog® forestry mulcher. The company also manufactures tracked carriers and tractors, as well as a full range of attachments and other equipment for vegetation management. Its products are sold through equipment dealers and distributors worldwide. For more information on Fecon products, visit www.Fecon.com.
