Where to buy

Featuring a highly efficient valve and extensive optionality, the versatile HTH616C Series-III harvester head is performance-ready for productivity on wheeled or tracked carriers.

Motor selections can be configured to complement the valve and improve feeding speed. A high torque motor option is available to help increase productivity in the toughest delimbing conditions.

The valve provides improved responsiveness in the delimb and drive arms to enhance grabbing stems, log handling and improves sawing performance – reducing processing times. The cast delimb arm design improves limb shedding and can be configured in processing or harvesting profiles.

This harvester has optional twin diameter sensors that provide better measuring when small end diameters are critical. Additionally, the head features more length measuring consistency, with more measuring arm travel and enhanced measuring arm responsiveness.
