SAW UNITS

WHICH SAW?

To ensure that each head has the best possible saw, we have several different models for you to choose from. Below we describe the different saw units and which heads they suit.

Good to know!

H11 is the standard designation for ¾" chains at our supplier Oregon, so we have decided to suffix all our ¾" chains with -11.
H18 is the standard designation for 0.404" chains at our supplier Oregon, so we have decided to suffix all our 0.404" chains with -18. All guide bars for 0.404" are Jet-Fit, 15 mm.

The first number denotes the type of chain tensioner. An even number means manual chain tensioning and an odd number means automatic tensioning.
For example: 218 – manual tensioning and a 0.404" chain
318 – automatic tensioning and a 0.404" chain
411 – manual tensioning and a ¾" chain

Our smartest saw

True-Cut 218/318

Suits Log Max heads: 3000T, 4000T och 6000V

The True-Cut series features two different saw units: the 218 and the 318

What makes True-Cut our smartest saw is that it has a built-in saw valve that can measure the saw motor speed and adjust the guide bar feed speed accordingly. This means that True-Cut can maintain a constant chain speed of 40 m/s throughout the cutting cycle regardless of the tree. It uses the valve to monitor the cutting cycle, and if the saw motor speed changes, it adjusts the guide bar feed speed to match, thereby ensuring smooth saw operation with minimal interruptions.

Chain tensioning is manual on the 218 and automatic on the 318.
They both have 19 cc motors.

The result is an extremely fast saw, up to 35% faster than other saw units!

Another advantage of the 218/318 saw units is that the cutting control system has a high-resolution sensor. This means that the saw unit can receive more pulses about the guide bar’s position throughout the cutting cycle, enabling it to extend the guide bar only as much as necessary, thereby optimising cutting performance. This also ensures good colour marking precision as it is easier to target the paint correctly.

A True-Cut saw also provides a safer work environment as it significantly minimises the risk of chain shot. Because the valve regulates the saw motor speed, it responds immediately to changes in speed and adjusts the motor speed. This means that the saw motor almost never runs too fast, which further reduces the risk of the chain breaking and thereby also the risk of chain shot.

True-Cut is optimised at the factory and does not require any additional settings in the machine’s computer.

ADVANTAGES

  • Optimal sawing at all times regardless of conditions
  • Fast
  • Minimises interruptions
  • Smoother saw operation
  • Safer work environment

SuperCut 100

Suits Log Max heads: 5000D, 6000TWIN, 7000C, 7000TWIN, E6

SuperCut 100 is an extremely well-renowned saw unit from Hultdins with automatic chain tensioning.

We can offer it with either a 19 cc or a 30 cc saw motor.

This is a flexible saw unit that comes in different variants to match needs and preferences. You can, for example, choose between different motor and sprocket sizes.

The standard version of the SuperCut 100 has integrated proportional chain lubrication as well. It also has an integrated protected guide bar feed cylinder vertically offset from the guide bar and tensioning unit, which reduces the risk of snow accumulating.

ADVANTAGES

  • Flexible
  • Automatic chain tensioning
  • Proportional chain lubrication
  • Protected guide bar feed cylinder

OTHER SAW UNITS

The 928 saw only suits the 928A

Our smallest saw unit only suits our 928A head. This is a basic saw unit with manual chain tensioning. This saw unit is light, has few components and is specially designed to be mounted on our smallest and lightest head. It has a 10 cc saw motor and the guide bar has a maximum cutting diameter of 42 cm.
