Our story...   

After spending over 36 years in the land clearing business, our founder was tired of having to lose valuable time in dealing with broken down mulching attachments. Inspired to make his work life easier he decided to design a forestry mulcher that was built tough, efficient and durable. It wasn't too long after he started using his own forestry mulcher that he started getting calls from other contractors wanting to buy his mulcher. Today we have customers worldwide and are working on our 3rd generation of forestry mulchers.  

Unlike many other attachment manufacturers, AFE has integrated years of experience in the forestry mulching business with ideas and actions to ensure our mulchers outperform other technologies. All our forestry mulchers are designed to face the same conditions you face day after day. Our designs include our one of a kind skid-steer mulcher the SS ECO. Other mulchers include our excavator mulcher line better known as the RDM Series. The RDM Series is the only mulcher line in the world with the Digging Spade Feature. We have a history of using leading edge technology combined with innovation to provide land clearing solutions.

Advanced Forest Equipment, Inc. designed the 1st original disc mulcher for skid steers. AFE is a manufacturer of high-performance mulching attachments for excavators and skid steers. For years, AFE was established to meet the needs of mulching contractors. Unlike many other attachment manufacturers, we have spent more than 35 years in the land clearing and forestry mulching business, utilizing every type of equipment available. Our experience gives us insight to what you face in the field as you do your job, therefore AFE equipment is designed and tested to outperform other technologies. Imitated by some, duplicated by none! Do it right the first time and buy the original disc mulcher for skid steers!

Here at AFE we do not rush our process to meet a quantity metric because we know that as a contractor you need equipment you can depend on time and time again. Our assembling process is done with great thoroughness and precision.  We only use the best materials on the planet. None of our materials are recycled nor refurbished. In order to meet our quality expectations, we use several testing methods on each and every mulching attachment before it leaves our site. We focus on doing it right the first time! By manufacturing each and every mulcher a masterpiece with unparalleled quality and value.  

Our equipment was not designed in a lab, but in the field under the same conditions you face daily. Engineered and manufactured in the USA! Here at Advanced Forest Equipment, we have the contractor advantage! We are not just salespeople that work for a manufacturer, we are one of the most aggressive forestry mulching contracting company on the west coast. We mulch and will continue to mulch with our forestry mulchers; therefore, we practice what we preach! Engineered by Contractors, for Contractors!
