FAE expands the RCU series with the new RCU-75 model, a compact, professional and powerful remote-controlled tracked transporter.
The RCU-75 is designed to work in hard-to-reach areas and on steep slopes that require dedicated equipment to ensure operator safety and operating efficiency. It is excellent for working in hilly wooded areas, near railway tracks, power lines, gas and oil pipelines, gardens, roadsides, highways, canals, rivers and lakes.
The new FAE tracked transporter is powered by the Kohler Common Rail electronic fuel injection engine – a compact, powerful and fuel efficient 74hp propulsion system that meets the strictest emission standards.
The heavy-duty undercarriage features a hydraulic extendable and retractable independent track gauge system and an automatic tensioning system. Thanks to the high profile rubber tracks – 86 mm pitch and 13 wide – oscillating rollers and triple flanged idlers, it can operate in the toughest conditions. High-tech solutions give the RCU unbeatable traction, allowing it to work on steep slopes up to 55 degrees. In addition, the steel tracked version offers excellent traction even in the most difficult terrain.
A double hydrostatic transmission offers better traction and optimal management of the accessory. Electronically controlled piston pumps combined with a dedicated electronic control unit provide an integrated technological system. The result is high performance and long-lasting reliability, as well as simple and intuitive operation.
The RCU-75 is guided by an ergonomic remote control with a large 3.5” screen for superior management of all vehicle and accessory functions and with customizable function keys. A transmission frequency of 2.4 GHz ensures reliable communication. The layout of the controls, the well-balanced strap support, make the FAE RCU remote control ergonomic and easy to use.
The RCU-75 can be combined with the BL2/RCU mulcher, designed to mulch vegetation up to six inches in diameter. This chipper features a fixed-tooth rotor and Bite Limiter technology that delivers higher productivity with even less power thanks to low power absorption.
The RCU range will be available in 2023.
