How 'bout some insight on actually operating a FAE mulching head. Just got it today. Should I keep it on the ground when entering debris in the forward direction or raise it a little and then ground it when I back up? How to position when cutting thick vines and briars? Angle of head when moving forward? Angle when moving backward? I worry that if I don't cut at ground level on the way forward that the stubble will damage my tracks? I have a brand new ASV RC100. Any tips on operating a mulching head would be appreciated.

That would be my concern too, if the saplings were not cut at ground level i can see them puncturing tyres or damaging the rubber on tracks. I have never used one but i would think going in with arms up then lowering down on the brush to ground level then lift and repeat. On thin brush i see no reason why just off the ground wouldn't work, but thick i can see a need to raise an lower the mulcher.

I think that FAE has a web site as well as Fecon and loftness. Watch their vidios and see if that helps.
