Some of the machines used by JPV Mulching are trackhoes, a tracked vehicle with a backhoe arm, and are configured with hydraulically driven mowers on the end of the arm. This enables use on slopes, around wet areas, between and around big trees, and in rocky areas because the hoe can reach down slopes, across wet ground, between trees to take out specific trees leaving others, and the operator can see obstructions and can manipulate the mower around them with the hoe. These trackhoe machines can reach heights that other mowers cannot reach, and they can selectively eliminate trees and brush on bad terrain and among big trees. We have a stump cutter that is attached to a trackhoe, usually on our Daewoo, and it is ideally suited for fast, economical, stump removal down to, or below, ground level.
All of the JPV Mulching trackhoes have 36-inch wide pads on their tracks, enabling them to function with minimal soil disturbance because of their relatively low ground pressure. One of the trackhoes is smaller and lighter than the others, enabling it to be used where tight spaces and maneuverability are a factor. Although smaller and more maneuverable, this trackhoe is powerful enough to clear brush and trees fast and well. The larger trackhoes, although less maneuverable than the smaller one, have a longer reach, and are particularly useful where long reach is needed, such as on the banks of a pond or stream.
