PaTrizio, from FAE a compact mulcher for specialized tractors
PaTriziO is the name of a mulcher designed for shredding twigs, prunings and shrubs with a diameter of up to 15 centimetres. It is produced by FAE of Fondo (Trento), and with this model it inaugurates the Bite Limiter rotor on the compact mulcher segment. After being successfully tested on other applications made by the Trentino company, including - for example - the forestry mulcher for BL1 EX, the Bite Limiter technology is now also available on the PaTriziO model. It employs special steel profiles that limit the working depth of the fixed blades to make the most of the available power. The constructive solution designed by the Trentino company means the application is able to reduce absorption peaks and to harmonize the effort required by specific processes, to the benefit of consumption and performance. However, the Bite Limiter rotor is not the only plus of the PaTriziO mulcher. The latest addition to the FAE brand distinguishes itself for its sturdy frame - it is completely closed to guarantee maximum transmission protection - and by the double row of steel counterblades, ideal for shredding materials finely and uniformly. Also noteworthy, the repositioning of the hydraulic cylinder of the hood, placed inside the frame to avoid possible bending and oil leaks during work operations. The standard equipment of the latest addition to the FAE stable also includes two adjustable support slides with Hardox sole (they allow you to vary the working height of the rotor), a universal trasmission shaft with torque limiter, a mechanical branch chopper (to convey the material before shredding), the third hydraulic point and the E/HD type blades (with Widia tip). Compact and light, the new FAE mulcher is suitable for agricultural and forestry operations with top level performance on the specialized tractors "Frutteto" for orchards or "Vigneto" for vineyards, in the 50 to 100 Hp power class, usually used with the classic hammer shredders. Depending on the models, the working widths start from a minimum of 1,480 mm to a maximum of 1,960 mm.
