The 7000XT Fixed Head is designed to be mounted directly on a rotation unit, which gives the operator total control over the head's movements. A great advantage when working in sensitive environments, e.g. among power lines or in densely populated areas, or when processing hardwood with heavily branched crowns.
This head is directly mounted on the crane via the rotation unit, for controlled felling.
This unique tool makes it easy to delimb hardwood by placing the head at the desired angle and tilt.
The head is extremely strong and can "pick" trees and move them standing vertical to the desired site for felling.

What do customers say?
Jon Goettl, Goettl Logging
- We like the fixed head to keep the trees in the right-of-way when clearing for power lines and the pipeline. It lets us put the tree where we need it.
Directly mounted on the crane
The head is mounted without the usual felling link directly on the crane to give the operator full control over the head's rotation and tilt. It is suitable for those who work in difficult-to-access terrains, such as power lines. The head has continuous rotation eliminating the risk of tangling any hoses.
Log Max 7000XT Fixed Head is equipped with a top saw.
Top saws are primarily used in processing work. Having a saw on both ends of the head makes it easier to work with heavily branched broad-leaved trees, either on a standing tree or one already felled.
Smart feed roller motor
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.
Processor knives simplify the picking of felled trees. They have elongated tips so as not to get caught in adjacent logs, thus deteriorating the quality of the wood. The edges of these knives are interchangeable.
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 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 7000XT Fixed Head
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.

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.
Kit with replacement hose.
Ask your local dealer for more information.
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.
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.
