Mulcher EFQ

These have proven themselves to be hugely capable machines on kiwifruit and avocado orchards for annual pruning’s, shelter belt trimmings and under vine mowing as well as dairy farms for controlling high volume weeds eg. gorse Californian and scotch thistle, topping of grasses and debris clean up. With its hydraulically controlled rear door, you can instantly change from a flail mower with instant discharge for high volume situations like paspalum and kaikuia mowing at speed to mulching with the door closed stopping any discharge over the roller to ensure only a fine mulch is left.

Mulcher EFQ

The Aiemery mulcher has proven to be highly capable when used in kiwifruit and avocado orchards for annual pruning, trimming shelter belts, mowing under vines, and on dairy farms for weed control, such as gorse, Californian thistle, and Scotch thistle. It is also effective for topping grasses and cleaning up debris. The mulcher features a hydraulic rear door that allows for instant switching between mulching with immediate discharge for handling high volumes of materials, like paspalum and kaikuia mowing at high speeds, and mulching with the door closed, preventing any discharge over the roller and ensuring only a fine mulch remains.

How does a mulcher work?

Mulchers work by using a rotating blade or disc to chop and shred organic material into small pieces. The mulcher has an inlet where you feed the material to be mulched. The material is then passed through the blade or disc, which shreds and chops it into small pieces. The mulch is then collected in a bag or container attached to the mulcher.


Benefits of using a mulcher

Using a mulcher has several benefits, including:


  • Improved soil fertility: Mulch contains nutrients that can improve soil fertility, resulting in healthier plants.

  • Reduced soil erosion: Mulch helps to protect the soil from erosion caused by wind and rain.

  • Weed control: Mulch helps to suppress weed growth by preventing sunlight from reaching weed seeds.

  • Water retention: Mulch helps to retain moisture in the soil, reducing the need for frequent watering.

  • Aesthetics: Mulch can enhance the appearance of garden beds and landscapes.



Factors to consider when buying a mulcher

When buying a mulcher, there are several factors to consider to ensure you choose the right one for your needs. These factors include:


Power source

Mulchers can be powered by electricity or gas. Electric mulchers are quieter and more environmentally friendly, but they are limited by the length of the power cord or battery life. Gas-powered mulchers offer more power and freedom of movement but tend to be louder and require more maintenance.


Capacity and speed

Consider the mulcher's capacity and speed, which determine how much material it can handle and how quickly it can process it. If you have a large yard or a significant amount of organic debris, opt for a mulcher with a higher capacity and speed.


Size and weight

The size and weight of the mulcher are essential factors to consider, especially if you have limited storage space or if you need to transport the mulcher frequently. Ensure that the mulcher is compact and lightweight enough for your specific needs.


Noise level

If noise is a concern for you or if you live in a noise-restricted area, consider choosing a mulcher with a lower noise level. Electric mulchers generally produce less noise compared to gas-powered ones.


How to use a mulcher

Using a mulcher is relatively straightforward. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you:


  1. Start by gathering the organic material you want to mulch, such as leaves, branches, or garden debris.

  2. Ensure that the material is free from any non-organic items like rocks or plastics that could damage the mulcher.

  3. Set up the mulcher in a safe and stable location, following the manufacturer's instructions.

  4. Plug in the electric mulcher or fill the gas-powered mulcher with the appropriate fuel.

  5. Turn on the mulcher and gradually feed the organic material into the inlet, being mindful of the machine's capacity and limitations.

  6. Allow the mulcher to process the material, and collect the mulched material in a bag or container attached to the mulcher.

  7. Continue feeding the mulcher until all the material is processed or until you have the desired amount of mulch.

  8. Once finished, turn off the mulcher and clean it according to the manufacturer's instructions.


Maintenance and safety tips

To ensure the longevity and safe operation of your mulcher, follow these maintenance and safety tips:


  • Regularly clean the mulcher to prevent debris buildup and maintain optimal performance.

  • Sharpen or replace the blades as necessary to ensure efficient mulching.

  • Follow the manufacturer's guidelines for maintenance intervals and procedures.

  • Wear appropriate protective gear, such as gloves and safety goggles, when operating the mulcher.

  • Keep bystanders, especially children and pets, at a safe distance from the mulcher.

  • Read and understand the mulcher's user manual before use to familiarize yourself with its specific features and safety instructions.
