What do customers say?

Hans Selander - Sverige

- This head goes everywhere! From the roughest to the smallest. It's all-round, much lighter than 6000! In our forests, no bigger ones are needed. It will never be too big and not too small if you are in final felling. I am very impressed with the Log Max 5000!

Mia Karlsson - Sverige

- The best thing with my Log Max head is the durability, and that everything is so well protected. It is a head well suited for felling large trees, as it is tall and gives good leverage of its own weight. I would recommend it because of the strength and reliability!


From thinning to light final cutting

Log Max 5000 is designed to fit all types of base machines. For this reason, low weight is a key factor in combination with strong traction.

This harvesting head can handle all kinds of jobs, from thinning to final felling.

Equipped to your needs

You can choose to equip your Log Max 5000D with several pieces of equipment such as multi-stemming and Supercut saw with an automatic chain tensioner.

Read more about your options further down.

Reinforced felling link

To increase stability and durability, you can equip the 5000D with a reinforced felling link.
A must-have when mounted on an excavator, or when the head is used in tougher conditions.


Active Friction Control - AFC

The AFC system is our heads' 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. Having a straight feed roller leads above all to reduced friction losses but also to minimal penetration into the trunk.

4-point measuring

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 (3000, 4000, 5000, and 6000 series) 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 5000D


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.


Log Max Eucalyptus feed roller is different from our other feed rollers. They are specially designed to debark the thick bark of eucalyptus trees.

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.

Heavy Duty-kit

Mounted for increased durability and as extra protection for your head. The Heavy Duty-kit contains a reinforced felling link and extra protection for cylinders and feed roller motors.


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