Werk-Brau Introduces the FX26 Forestry Mulcher

Werk-Brau introduces the FX26 Forestry Mulcher, a rugged, durable, well-balanced forestry mulcher for excavators from 8,000 to 16,000 pounds. This stout mulcher has a direct coupled motor which provides more power with less maintenance than comparable models that use belts or pulleys. A heavy wall 14-inch rotor is fitted with 21 fixed knives to shred brush, limbs, and standing trees to 6-inches in diameter. The bite-limiting tooth design maintains drum speed and prevents stalling. Material is passed through 2 breaker bars to create fine mulch without sacrificing performance. The FX26 weighs just 785 pounds and requires just 15-35 gpm of hydraulic flow to power the gear motor but features a 26-inch working width for unmatched production. With just 2 grease points and no additional drive components, this simple design is easy to maintain.


The lightweight yet durable construction, coupled with lower hydraulic flow requirements allow the FX26 to be paired with more excavator models down to 8000 pounds. It is an ideal entry-level tool for contractors expanding into brush clearing, land management, defensible urban fire defense clearing, right of way clearing, and more.


A universal bolt-on mount is included with each mulcher so installation is fast and simple (Tag® or WainRoy® mounts excluded but available at additional cost). Each FX26 includes 100 inches of hydraulic lines and ¾ inch flat faced couplers; case drain is not required. 


Werk-Brau recently partnered with Valley Tool Manufacturing to provide Werk-Brau branded BrushHound mulchers, brush shredders, and flail mowers, and RockHound landscape rakes through Werk-Brau’s nationwide dealer network. Each FX26 mulcher is manufactured by Valley Tool but serviced through the Werk-Brau network, providing single-source convenience for customers.
