What do customers say?
Lauro José Tonin - Brasil
- Log Max E6 delivers a high and optimized barking function, even in more difficult conditions and in older stocks of Eucalyptus.
Gary Möller - South Africa
- With its two feed motors, it demands less oil flow from the carrier, making the carrier up to 2L per hour lighter than a machine with four feed motors. The low maintenance is exceptional, and you almost forget you have a machine in the field... 8000hrs on our 1st E6 and have only started to shim up knife arms. Another huge plus is the service support and backup from Afrequip; those guys are tops!!
What makes the E6 your best choice
Five delimbing knives
The units have an extra delimbing knife, five in total, to bark the eucalyptus optimally. The bark of eucalyptus is very tough and special to work with. The tree must be barked simultaneously as its harvested, and the five delimbing knives create better conditions for removing all bark.
Harvest trees between 4-26 cm
The head is delivered with delimbing knives that are specially adapted with a profile for working in eucalyptus plantations with trees that have a diameter between 4-26cm.
Angled feed roller arms
The head is equipped with feed roller arms whose angle varies depending on the size of the tree. The feed roller arms angle helps lift the tree towards the frame, which makes the barking even better.
Due to the changed angle, the head can use maximum force at the barking moment, which is needed when working with eucalyptus.
Debarking wheel in the frame
Where the length measuring wheel is mounted on other types of Log Max heads, the E6 has a wide debarking wheel.
Replaceable welded knife edges
All movable delimbing knives at the head have replaceable knives edges as the wear is high during the debarking work. The welded ones give the head longer durability and better function throughout its life.
Thicker wear plates
All wear plates on the head are thicker than on other Log Max heads because we want to give the head a longer service life and withstand more wear.
A heavy-duty head
The E6 has a welded felling link, thicker wear plates and is equipped with Heavy-duty protection kit from the start. All this to give the head a longer service life and for it to withstand hard wear.

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.
