Stroke processor heads

Recommended Posts

Anyone use a stroke processor head, afm or fms 400 - 575 or similar, thinking of using one in hardwoods mainly. Base machine would be jcb 10 tonne or 13 tonne. Any any experience of this... Timber to go through is mainly oak and ash in under managed woods 12-14 bdh.

 

Thanks

We have a stroke processing head on our Kranman P25B processor. It's quite quick, but quicker than most of the ones that I've seen for excavators on account of the 103cm stroke. The heads for excavators tend to be 50cm or so and seem painfully slow.

 

Would you need such a large machine for harvesting such small trees?

I was on a site a few years ago, they were running one on a Hyundai. It handled beech well, they were averaging 100t a day in a mix of soft/ hardwood.

What will process big will also process small, makes you more versatile.

Thanks for your replies guys.. Does anyone run a big stroke head on hardwoods? Am I right in thinking stroke heads would be better than roller heads on hardwoods?
