New head for eucalyptus harvesting
Log Max proudly presents the new Log Max E6. This specially designed harvesting head, built on the same well proven principle as all Log Max heads is a given success for eucalyptus harversting. Equipped with angled wheel arms and five custom built delimbing knives this head will assure fast debarking for increased production.
The Log Max E6 is designed to operate in the toughest conditions and features both a cast felling link and upper knife. The structure design and build of the frame, thanks to modern welding techniques and high quality steel, minimizes stress concentration and weight for increased durability. The frame also features two wear plates that can easily be replaced to maximize the lifetime of the head.
The feed unit features two hydraulically driven Poclain MS08 radial piston motors with a feed force of almost 20 kN and a feed speed as high as 5,8 m/s!
Length measuring, on the Log Max E6, is done through sensors located in one of the feed rollers. A support debarking wheel is placed at the centre of the frame.
The hydraulically driven saw motor is positioned to minimizes the risk of splitting the log when cutting. The saw motor comes in three different options: Saw 98, Saw 98XL or Hultdins SuperCut 100. These can be equipped with either a 64 or 75 cm saw bar with 10 or 15 mm groove depending on the model.
To even further increase the production Log Max has developed a special eucalyptus knife control add-on to our control system, Log Mate 402. This state-of-the-art control system in combination with Log Max patented upper knife sensor makes it easy to get the highest possible log quality.
We at Log Max believe that the purpose built Log Max E6 will become a huge success in South America, Oceania, Spain, South Africa and other parts of the world where eucalyptus plantations are found.
