MU-FM Hydro Flail Mower

Front mulcher with hydraulic drive for yard loader and municipal vehicles Oil volume required 40 L/min at 180 bar 

For front mounting vehicles without PTO, Müthing supplies the MU-FM/Hydro flail mulcher with a powerful hydraulic motor. The basic professional model of the MU-FM/Hydro has the same build as the MU-FM. Of course, it also possesses the same impressive operating and quality advantages as the MU-FM, comparable versatility and identical optional equipment. 

The drive of this mulcher requires an oil volume of 40 L per minute at a pressure of about 180 bar. This means that the MU-FM/Hydro can be used on yard loaders and special hydro traction vehicles. A large selection of mounting adapter plates for these vehicles simplifies mounting. Optionally available hydraulic control blocks facilitate mounting onto vehicles’ hydraulic systems for oil volumes in excess of 48 L/min.
