Our Machines

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.

Before & After Clearing:

Often times the flexibility and maneuverability of a trackhoe is not needed, but high volume and speed are. That’s where the JPV Mulching articulated front-end mower comes into play. With 250 horsepower and an amazing 8-foot wide mower/mulcher, this machine can mow down and mulch trees and underbrush at an amazing rate, and it can chew through trees of any diameter. Because of its size, power and capacity, the use of this tool costs more per hour than competitors with smaller machines, but in the long run, it is actually more economical because of its high capacity and overall efficiency.

Land developers find that use of the JPV Mulching articulated front-end mower can be particularly valuable because of the cost of tree removal by traditional means. When land needed to be cleared for development, trees were pushed over, loaded on trucks, and hauled off for disposal. The expense of hauling and disposal can be eliminated at considerable savings by bringing in JPV Mulching to dispose of trees on site. It may still be more economical and efficient to push the trees over, but instead of loading and hauling them, simply push them into windrows and JPV Mulching will mulch them on the spot. The mulch debris can be redistributed for landscaping and erosion control, or simply left in place. No more trucking costs and disposal fees, and the time and risk that goes with them.
