6000V is a versatile head which has a wide range of applications, mainly focused on final felling. The unit is a further development of our great seller 6000B with improvements and updates to work even better in today’s modern forestry.

 

The length measurement function of the 6000V has been optimized to create the very best conditions for delivering optimal measurement results. we have made changes in several areas in order for measuring wheel to better follow the contour of the trunk.

 

Modifications and reinforcements to the new frame improve the the reliability and lifetime of the head.

 

The unit is also equipped with our new, smart saw True-Cut that provides fast and controlled cutting.

FEED ROLLERS

v-steel rollers  

V-Steel

By placing the stud bars in angled rows, Log Max has obtained a self cleaning feed roller with very high pulling force both in forward and reverse, without risk of spinning.

v-steel aggr. rollers  

V-Steel Aggressive

The V-steel Aggressive roller has studs that sink deeper in the tree trunk.

eucalyptus rollers  

Eucalyptus

Log Max Eucalyptus rollers have angled edges for debarking as eucalyptus demands complete debarking when felling.

OPTIONAL CHAINSAW

An impressive new saw unit - the Log Max True-Cut

 

The Log Max 6000V can be equiped 318 True-Cut and 218 True-Cut, both saws have a 19cc motor, the 318 has automatic chain tensioning the 218 has manual tensioning.



A 30 cc 318 (non True-Cut) is also available.



The key component of the True-Cut system is the intelligent saw motor with integrated valving solutions for saw motor speed and saw bar control. By continuously sensing the motor speed and adjusting the saw bar feed rate accordingly, the True-Cut maintains an almost constant chain speed of 40 m/s throughout the cutting cycle. This yields an impressive cutting performance - the True-Cut is up to 35 % faster than conventional saw units! By locating the valve for motor speed control inside the motor it is able to react instantly to changes in motor speed and practically eliminate any over-revving that is seen in a convention- al saw unit. Not only does this reduce the stress on the motor but it also provides a safer work environment by reducing the risk of chain shots. The True-Cut saw units also features a longer stroke cylinder and a higher resolution cutting con- trol sensor. These additions provide for a more precise control of the saw bar resulting in maxi- mized cutting performance and color marking precision. The True-Cut is optimized at the factory and should not need any further setting changes in the field.

MULTI-STEMMING

Accumulation kit

 

This allows the head to be used as a combination head - both as a conventional harvester as well as a multi-stemming head for thinning small wood or in late brush cuttings.

 

The Log Max Accumulation Kit can be run with Log Mate 510, 500, Motomit, CabsWin, Dasa 380, Ponsse Opti, Timbermatic and Komatsu Maxi.

FLOATING TOP KNIFE

Active Friction Control

 

The new generation floating top knife featuring Active Friction Control actively controls and adjusts the amount of friction between the log and the harvesting head's frame. There is no need to go out and change the settings by adjusting the unit, everything is now set automatically. Low friction is desired as it leads to lower fuel consumption and heat generation. There is the exception of when delimbing heavily branched trees with small diameter limbs a higher friction minimizes the risk of simply bending them flat.



The harvester's computer is the brain of the Active Friction Control and based on your settings, the Log Max head behaves optimally depending on tree species and diameter. For example, a thinning of pine and birch can behave quite differently based on tree species.
