Log Max 7000C combines high traction with fast feed speed and is one of our most popular heads. The traction and speed of the head are automatically adjusted depending on the size of the trees, which brings smooth log feeding and a good driving experience.
The head is equipped with variable feed roller motors, which adapt speed and traction to the diameter of the log.
FOR WHEELED HARVESTERS
The 7000C is our largest head intended for wheeled carriers.

What do customers say?
John Säljgård - Sweden
- Absolutely superb! Much thanks to the variable feed roller motors, them give the machine a smoother ride. Plus it never stops, it becomes an incredible continuity. The softer gait makes me much more alert after the end of the day, plus the whole driving experience is better because it is much less jerky. I think it has a huge positive effect. Continuity is equal to economy and the continuity is enormous with the 7000C head.
Nico Michel - Switzerland
- In my opinion, the Log Max 7000C is the best harvesting head in its size class. This is mainly due to the robust and strong construction and the extreme force it has. I can recommend this head to anyone who works in hardwood; the power and accuracy is overwhelming. As I write this text, I have many memories of work that make me choose a Log Max 7000C again!
Smart feed roller motors
The feed roller motors have a variable displacement ranging between 830 and 1320 cc, this provides an automatic, dynamic adjustment of the feed speed and torque regardless of the log diameter.
If you work with small trees, you get a high feeding speed and when you work with larger diameter trees, higher torque is prioritized. This functionality provides a great user experience and also improves fuel consumption.
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.
Feed rollers for 7000C
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.
Saw units for 7000C
Feed motors for 7000C
Variabel 830-1320 cc
Feed force: 41.7 kN
Feed speed: 5.3 m/s / 17.39 ft/s
Feed force: 35.9 kN
Feed speed: 3.9 m/s / 12.80 ft/s
Rotators for 7000C
Optional equipment for 7000C
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.
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.
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.
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.
