Launches Titan 22
Pierce Pacific Manufacturing
unveiled four years of research,
development and testing in the
form of its new Titan 22 harvester/
processor at the Oregon
Logging Conference in
The Titan 22 features a highly
advanced measuring system
with stop-on-the-mark technology,
real-time length and diameter
readouts, and much more. The design allows for easy
harvesting at the stump or processing from a log deck, with
an independent measuring circuit that provides unprecedented
accuracy and maximum log utilization. In addition, a
quick-change feature allows for a rapid switch to grapples.
The unit weighs 4,700 pounds and processes up to 24"
diameter stems at 17 feet per second. For details visit
Grinder is a trackmounted
of the 6700B.
Powered by a
1000-hp Caterpillar 3412E diesel engine, the 6710B is
designed for the biggest jobs. With a feed opening of 50” x
60”, it can even process large stumps that used to be
reserved for tub grinders. And the track mounting reduces
material handling costs in conventional recycling yards.
The 6710B features Peterson's Adaptive Control System
II, which controls all components of the feed system to optimize
output. The three-stage grinding process with an up
turning rotor and large grate area enables the grinder to
produce materials to exact specifications.
Rotor options include a traditional “drum” style rotor for
general applications, and a “pinned” system for high
impact applications. or more information visit www.petersonpacific.com.
New John Deere
for North America
The H480 Harvesting
Head (available on the
1470D and 1270D
Harvesters) is making
its debut in North
America after proving
itself in Europe. Based
on the industry-leading
758HD and HTH470 Harvesting Heads, the H480 retains
the same winning dimensions, while strengthening the
delimbing knives, cylinders and feed-roller motors. The
H480 features longer upper moving knives that make it easier
to pick stems off the ground. The shorter lower knives,
with relocated pivot points, provide better delimbing quality
and greatly improve the holding capacity of large stems.
Reinforced tilt bracket welding and stronger upper delimbing
knives make the H480 a tough head that loggers can
count on for productivity and reliability. For details visit
Redesigned Morbark 4600XL
The 82,000-pound redesigned Morbark Model 4600XL
Track Wood Hog offers the best of both worlds, combining
the rugged durability and high horsepower options of its
big brother, the 6600 Track Hog, with the transportability of
smaller machines, effortlessly meeting road weight requirements.
The hammermill of the 4600XL Track is 14 percent larger
than its predecessor, increasing the tip swing to 36”. With
power options up to 860 hp and an increased tip swing
speed, the 4600XL will power through the tough debris. A
new infeed extension folds flat to assist with the processing
of longer tree length material and folds up for better containment
in regrind applications.
The Iqan Feed System, uniquely programmed to
Morbark machines and standard on the 4600XL Track Hog,
boosts production levels by providing a consistent feed and
substantially minimizing downtime. To find out more, visit
Tracks for 6-Wheel CTL Machines
Hultdins Inc. now offers a wider range of tracks for 6-wheel CTL harvesters and forwarders. Combined with ECO-Tracks on the bogie end, ECO-Wheel Tracks enhance the overall performance on 6-wheel machines with added stability, improved traction, and increased flotation compared to tire chains.
ECO-Tracks and ECO-OF models continue to be the most popular choice of bogie tracks. ECO-Soft, ECO-Max, and ECO-Magnum are optional choices for more extreme ground conditions. For more information log on to www.hultdins.com.
System is a high volume
with chain, vibratory,
or belt infeed conveyors. This system features a massive
overhead power feed mechanism to provide a controlled,
metered feed to the grinder. The upstroke grinder design
provides a large feed opening and the mill duty, disc-type
rotor allows multiple hammer configurations for superior
performance in a wide variety of applications — from high
volume processing of wood waste into board furnish,
mulch, fuel; re-grinding to produce bedding or play-chip; or
primary reduction of green waste for compost and/or
mulch. It's available with single or dual electric drive
motors, for reliable, low cost operation. Available options
include pre-screening, metal discharge conveyor, and magnetic
separation, to provide a complete wood waste recycling
system. To learn more visit www.westsalem.com.
Bandit Industries has
expanded their stump
grinder line by adding
custom trailers for their
stump grinders. Two
trailer models have been designed to accommodate the
model 2100 self-propelled stump grinder and a larger
capacity trailer for their models 2800SP or 2900 track selfpropelled
stump grinders. The trailers include a convenient
pinning device to secure the machines and loop rings for
chains and binders.
Both trailer models incorporate heavy-duty torsion axles
to provide a smooth ride and to reduce wear and tear on the
machines due to bumps in the road. The model 2100 trailer
comes with a 3,500-lb. torsion axle and the model 2800SP
trailer comes with a 5,200-lb. axle and includes electric
brakes and a break away actuator. Visit www.banditchippers.com for more information.
