The Mulcher Head Conversion Kit is compatible with the 843L and 843L-II machines.
To maximise the versatility of its machines, John Deere has announced the availability of its Mulcher Hydraulics Conversion Kit for the 843L and 843L-II Wheeled Feller Bunchers. Installed by the dealer, the kit allows customers to equip their machines for mulching applications, expanding the capabilities of the 843 models. The field kit can be used with compatible mulching heads, such as the new Fecon RK8620 Mulching Head, which was built specifically for use on the John Deere 843L and 843L-II machines.
The Mulcher Hydraulics Conversion Kit includes a new hydraulic pump in addition to plumbing and valve updates. While the base kit allows for a single function and float, those needing a second function can upgrade with an add-on kit. Customers can purchase a kit through their local dealer, which can convert their existing 843L or 843L-II into a mulching head-ready machine.
Built with the John Deere 843 models in mind, the Fecon RK8620 Mulching Head is constructed from a stronger, lighter steel and features an 86-inch (218 cm) cutting width. The RK8620 is available with an FGT- or DCR-style rotor to enhance the cutting performance. With the DCR rotor, the reversible Viking knives are ideal for fast cutting in all materials. The knife performance is further enhanced by depth control rings, which provide fast cutting durability. The heavy-duty RK8620 offers a broad range of motion for felling and below-grade work. With this attachment, operators can process material faster with fewer passes. The RK8620 Head is available as a standalone purchase through the Fecon sales channels. Source
