By: The Working Forest Staff

Lebanon, OH —  Fecon introduces the most powerful CTL on the market – the new 135VRT which is available through select Vermeer dealerships.  A 132HP 3.8 L Cummins Tier 4 Final Engine delivers 10% more horsepower than its predecessor 125VRT, while a 50 GPM auxiliary attachment flow provides 119 HP to the Bull Hog Forestry Mulcher or other attachments. 

A 16 GPM reserve allows full machine control without loss of attachment performance.  Designed for use in the woods, this new model features all-steel hoods, standard cage guard, and limb risers for greater protection and durability. 

A full forestry spec cab features ¾” polycarbonate front door and ½” polycarbonate side windows along with level 2 FOPS and a compete guarding package.  A more spacious, comfortable operator station includes an 8-inch color display.  There are no crossbars on the doors or windows, providing unobstructed visibility. 

Improved loader arm design also enhances attachment visibility.  Equipped with a bite limiting rotor to maintain rotor RPMs, the 135VRT easily mulches material to 8-inches in diameter. 

This new model features 4,150 ROC with an integrated counterweight or hydraulic winch kit for improved balance with Fecon Bull Hog Mulchers.  A 52-gallon fuel tank allows nearly double the run time between fill-ups.  Full coverage fuel tank guarding safeguards against damage while working, and improved sealing prevent debris ingestion.   

Hinged belly pans and tilting cooler and condenser guards allow easier cleaning.  Sealed fuse panels and improved wiring harness routing enhances durability.

Each 135VRT comes with a VM602SS Bull Hog Forestry Mulcher equipped with bite limiting rotor for a finer output while maintaining rotor RPMs.   Rotor fitted with 30 carbide or double-sided tools.
