A light and flexible thinning specialist

Lightweight, compact and impressive traction makes this head the obvious choice for you who have a long-range crane carrier. Log Max 3000T is one of our smaller heads and is tailored for thinning.


By equipping it with our multi-stemming kit, you optimize the heads function.


You can equip your 3000T with our smartest saw True-Cut 218 or 318, for fast and trouble-free cutting.


It fits machines with long cranes due to its lightweight and strong power.

What do customers say?

Mats Larsson, Sweden

- The head is nibble and is really easy to handle. I run a
Eco Log 560 with my 3000T and it surprises me that not more people choose this head. The weight and size are very good and I feel that it is very easy to work with it. Simply a quick and easy head.

Kjell Jansson, Sweden

- I run both first and second thinnings with the head. Average stem volumes of 0.18-0.20 are no problem! The measurement also works really well. I am around 90-95% against Stora Enso's guidelines, which is super good! I think the head is going great and is incredibly reliable!


New delimbing knife unit

To ensure the quality of the delimbing knives and extend the life of your Log Max head, the lower delimbing knife unit has been replaced at Log Max 3000T.

Log Max is now offering this kit free of charge for customers that own a Log Max 3000T.

A well-thought-out frame

The frame geometry is built to reduce bark penetration in the measuring wheel hole. The upper part of the frame is moved forwards to minimize the surface of the frame that is in contact with the trunk.

This construction leads to less abraded bark getting stuck in the measuring wheel hole, which in turn provides better conditions for good measurement and fewer stops.

Fast and controlled cutting

The well-thought-out geometry of the saw box leads to the cutting being controlled, less saw bar fluttering in that it can be cycled out in a shorter time.

The attachment of the saw unit to the frame and the choice of cylinder give the saw on Log Max 3000T a long lever. This gives you good control of the cutting cycle and saves time.

Coarse lower knife cylinder

To increase the lifting force of the lower delimbing knife, Log Max 3000T has a 40mm cylinder.

Mechanical stop in saw box

Log Max 3000T has an adjustable mechanical stop in the saw box to minimise wear on the saw cylinder.

The mechanical stop has a damping function to reduce wear and strain on the saw cylinder. It also spares the frame and the components of the saw, all for better durability and longer life.


Active Friction Control - AFC

The AFC system is our head's key technology and allows our heads to harvest trees with high precision and minimal friction.

The goal of the AFC is to minimize the friction between the trunk and the frame, which leads to minimal wear on the unit and lower operating costs because the head doesn't use more power than necessary.

The wood quality will also be high, as neither knives nor feed wheels need to use unnecessary force that damages the wood during processing.

Log Mate 510

Log Mate 510 is our control system which is specially developed for Log Max harvester heads and is the absolute best control system for our products.

The control system is robust and compact and of the highest quality. It is Windows-based, which simplifies the administration and updating of the system and provides good support for all new programs and services.

The system uses the latest forest standard StanForD 2010 v2 and v3 and consists of three modules, screen, cabin, and head module.


The hydraulics of our heads are characterized by a simple design. We use a proven technology that we trust and that results in reliable hose management and stable pressures throughout.

Our system has small hydraulic losses, which means that we get the most out of the head's performance.

Feed rollers

To optimize the head's function, you need to choose the feed rollers that fit both your head, but also the type of forest that you work in the most. Our feed rollers always work perpendicular to the tree, in contrast to many other heads that have angled feed rollers. Having a straight feed roller leads above all to reduced friction losses but also to minimal penetration into the trunk.

4-point measurement

The four-point measurement results in both a good volume calculation and accommodation. The measurement is made in four points, two opposite points each other in the feed rollers, one point in the lower delimbing knife (via a sensor) and a zero point on the frame.


To be able to harvest several trees at a time and thus streamline the work, Log Max harvesting heads (3000T, 4000T, 5000D, and 6000V) can be equipped with our multi-stemming unit. A head equipped with a
multi-stemming unit gets increased flexibility and can be used in several types of felling.


Feed rollers for Log Max 3000T


Self-cleaning feed wheels with high traction, both forwards and backwards, without risk of slip damage. The Soft Grip has a slightly lower stud (ca 5 mm) which gives less penetration into the trunk.


Self-cleaning feed wheels with high traction, both forwards and backwards, without the risk of spinning. The Hard Grip has a slightly higher stud (ca 10 mm) that provides a better grip around the trunk.

Cylinder rod protection

Protects the feed roller arm cylinders on the unit. The protection is standard on all XT units, although we do recommend it for all units, especially when thinning where the head is more exposed to hits as the forest is often denser or working with hardwood.

Field repair kit

A spare parts kit with the most vital components to minimize downtime. Contains sensors, cylinders etc. The kit varies (content and price) depending on the head model and equipment.

Please contact us for more information.

Protective bar

The protection is mounted on the felling link to protect the crane hoses, multi-stemming hoses, and color marking tanks. Available in two versions for units with or without color marking.

Fixed bottom plate

Used instead of the damped bottom plate. An advantage when minimal stump height is needed.

Dust & Snow cover

This rubber cover is mounted between the felling link and the rear of the frame. This prevents snow and debris from packing that could damage the protective cover.

Sawdust deflector

To minimize sawdust clouds when processing a log and also the risk of chain shots, a sawdust deflector is mounted on the saw box.

Hose Kit

Kit with replacement hose.

Ask your local dealer for more information.

Color marking

Includes tanks and equipment for two different colors. Color marking blocks are mounted in the saw box.

Find End sensor - laser

Used to easily find the root end / zero point of a log. The Find End sensor consists of a laser that is mounted in the saw box. This allows to easily
zero-reset without having to use the saw. This function optimizes and facilitates work when processing from the pile.

Stump treatment

Prepares the head for stump treatment. Requires a separate pump on the carrier.

Rotator control

To reduce weight and cost, it is possible to choose the rotator control option, which means that the rotator is controlled from the head instead of from the carrier.

The advantages are that it frees weight on the carrier by eliminating between 20-30 m of hose and also reduces costs. If the option is chosen, an extra valve is mounted to the head.

Real Easy

Quick attachment to the rotator so you can easily mount and dismount the head.

Grease Lubrication

Prepares the unit for grease-based chain lubrication, an alternative to Easy Greasy. Requires a separate pump on the carrier.


The accumulation kit is a good choice for you that wants to harvest several trees in every felling and thus streamline the work.
