EGS 406 is a well-tested harvester head used on Rottne H8. The head has two feed rollers of steel or for sensitive wood made of solid rubber, two pairs of moving delimbing knives and a saw unit with automatic chain tension.
The compact design and low weight make it ideal for use in all types of thinning stand. The head has a short frame, possibility to control the upper and lower knives and wheels separately and a high tractive force provide excellent conditions for processing bent and difficult hardwood. Diameter measurement is performed via sensors in the lower knives and length measurement by a separate free-running measuring wheel.
Colour marking, stump spray and multitree handling are available as option.
