    They claim there is a big difference in quality and production I tried one and put my HDT rotor back in. I know cb loves his, I wasn't a fan of it. Now I finally installed the daf 180 on my fecon. Man talk about a difference.

    FAE rock drum on the tigercat. It has the stone crusher teeth on it. I'm getting a CIMAF cutter for the tigercat as soon as possible or just a CIMAF rotor for the FAE housing. The rock does wreak havoc on the teeth but even a dull tooth seems to cut as good of better than the others.

    ive ran chipper teeth on fecons. they get to big of a bite.production is the same when you have to change teeth and fixtures.

    Both are good. I have 2 FGT and one Bullhog. The best part about the FGT is that our first one had 620 hours on it and not even a hint of a shake. I hear from the balance man that they are super easy to balance but I do not know since I have not had to have either balanced yet.

    Production rate is hard to compare...the FGT is in the FTX 148-L and it has loader arms and a two speed 160cc motor. The BH 85 is in the 140 with no loader arms and single speed motors so I do not have an apples to apples comparison for you.

    I can say they both kick butt though. So i think you will be a winner not matter what Fecon head you choose.

    It is the smooth drum head manufactured for Lynn Hendrix by Fecon.
