About Us

Our story...   

Having spent nearly 37 years in the land clearing business, our founder was tired of losing valuable time fixing broken down mulchers. Inspired to make work easier he decided to design and build a forestry mulcher that was tough, efficient, durable and easy to maintain. Not long after, the word got out about this revolutionary design and the orders started coming in. Today we have mulchers all over the world on various carriers all with the Advanced Forest Equipment name proudly displayed!

Unlike other attachment manufacturers, Advanced Forest Equipment has dedicated its years of experience in the forestry mulching business to develop a product line that continually outperforms other mulcher designs. Our equipment is not designed in a lab, but in the field under the same harsh conditions that you face daily. Our product line includes 3 skid steer disc mulchers featuring the Original Disc Mulcher for skid steer the SS Eco Mulcher, as well as multiple excavator mulchers know as the RDM Series. The RDM Series Mulcher is the only mulching attachment for excavator in the world to feature our Digging Spade Feature, allowing you to get more done with less down time. We continue to use our history of using leading edge technology and innovative design to provide land clearing solutions.

Advanced Forest Equipment, Inc. was established to meet the needs of the mulching contractor whether you have a fleet of machines or one machine just getting started. Our custom-built bearing box and top of the line components mean that an Advanced Forest Equipment disc mulcher will stand up to the harshest work, day in and day out.

Here at Advanced Forest Equipment, we have the contractor advantage! All our products are designed and manufactured in our facility; to our standards and tested to ensure that they meet our expectations before ever going into the field. We are located in beautiful Rathdrum, Idaho, USA. Simply put our attachments are Engineered by Contractors, for Contractors!

We pride ourselves in providing the best and only the best! Don't just take our word for it, here is what our customers have to say:

"Our productivity has increased by more than 40% since we purchased our RDM Attachments, and the quality of our work is much better too. The best part is, the attachment is "except for the cutting teeth" maintenance free! This has resulted in virtually no down time and more money in our pockets." Ryan M. - Environmental Wildlife Protection & Fire Prevention.

"We got more done in less time and with less environmental impact than with any other attachment I've tried - and believe me, I've tried them all! My customers love the finish work." Jon F. - Freese Contracting, LLC

"The attachments do what Advanced Forest Equipment says they can do. You can get more production out of a smaller base machine without doing any expensive modifications to the excavator. If your excavator has auxiliary hydraulics to run a hammer or breaker, you can easily run a Rotary Disc Mulcher." Eric T. - Environmental Forestry Inc.

"I just set this machine up, so far your products have been excellent. The cab guarding has been awesome and has already "saved" me time and expense. The mulching head is performing exceptional and impressing the client/job I purchased it for."- Contractor in Lyons, KS

"Hi AFE, I have just purchased my first SS ECO from Makin Tracks here in Australia.  I've wanted one for a couple of years and finally got it. Thanks for making such an awesome mulcher." - Cam H. in Victoria, Australia
