What do customers say?
Alex Pickard, New Brunswick, Canada
- The 6000V is an amazing head! Super fast, very reliable and lengths and diameters are always 100%. Feeds the trees very smooth and takes all limbs off. The Log Max team is a very smart team and have minimal down time with any issues as they help fix over the phone. Highly recommend the head!
Petri Ylinen, Sweden
- It's unbelievable! I have previously had problems with measurement on Log Max head, but now our numbers are enormously high. We are between 96-97%, and that means that the new measuring update works perfectly! I want it to be clear that I have these numbers. I know that it is essential for the forestry industry companies that the measurement works well, and it does that now! It takes all limbs off well and feeds well, but above all, it measures well.
Improved length measurement
To offer the best measurement results, we’ve made some changes in the length measurement function.
We have updated the construction of the measuring wheel cylinder, the hydraulic circuit and reinforced the measuring wheel arm and its attachment.
We also have a completely new measuring wheel unit including a bigger measuring wheel. Altogether, the changes will allow the measuring wheel to follow the contour of the stem even better and provide the best measurement result.
To increase durability and reduce the risk of cracks in the frame, we have created a reinforced attachment for the upper delimbing knife.
The frame is reinforced at the mainline, where the upper delimbing knife slides on the frame to increase durability and extend its life span.
An impressive saw unit
True-Cut is our smartest and fastest saw and we recommend you choose True-cut 318 that features automatic chain tensioning.
The integrated valving solution continuously senses the motor speed and adjusts the saw bar accordingly, the True-Cut maintains an almost constant chain speed of 40 m/s throughout the cutting cycle. The True-Cut is optimized at the factory and should not need any further setting changes in the field. For True-Cut to work, a minimum flow of 200l/min and a minimum pressure of 250 bar is required.
Increased tilt angle
The head has a new, increased tilt angle of 5°. The change gives the head greater mobility, which is always an advantage. It will also make it easier for the operators who work with the head on steep slopes.
The delimbing knife cylinder has been updated. The new cylinder has stronger attachments against the frame and knife. The update results in better durability and extended life span of the cylinder.
Reinforced around measuring wheel
To improve the frame’s durability and life span, we have changed the design of the measuring wheel hole. We also reinforced the stoppers for the roller arms, when in the closed position, at the inside of the frame to increase the frame’s strength and stability.
Replaceable pins for felling link cylinder
The pins for attaching the felling link cylinder in the frame are screwed at both ends. The refinement will simplify service and maintenance.
Updated attachment for the expander pin to measuring
wheel arm to simplifying service and maintenance.
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.
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 units 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.
In order 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 Log Max 6000V
V-STEEL SOFT GRIP
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.
V-STEEL HARD GRIP
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.

Rotators for Log Max 6000V
The processor knives have protruding tips that ease the prehension of logs from a pile of already felled trees. The processor knives are available in two designs, a welded and a cast one. They are equally durable but the welded one has replaceable knives edges, it also weighs slightly more.
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.
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.
To minimize sawdust clouds when processing a log and also the risk of chain shots, a sawdust deflector is mounted on the saw box.
Kit with replacement hose.
Ask your local dealer for more information.
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.
Prepares the head for stump treatment. Requires a separate pump on the carrier.
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.
Quick attachment to the rotator so you can easily mount and dismount the head.
Prepares the unit for grease-based chain lubrication, an alternative to Easy Greasy. Requires a separate pump on the carrier.
You can equip your head with an XT kit to withstand the toughest working conditions. The XT-kit comprises a cast, extra-strong felling link, a reinforced protective plate, and our 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.
Cast felling link
The felling link is cast in one piece to maximize strength and durability. The cast felling link is standard on all XT, TWIN and E6 heads. It is our most robust felling link, a must-have for tracked carriers.
Reinforced felling link
To increase stability and durability, you can extra equip your unit with a reinforced felling link. It is recommended when mounting the head on an excavator or for tougher conditions such as logging hardwood.
The accumulation kit is a good choice for you that wants to harvest several trees in every felling and thus streamline the work.
