Check out all the right specs on these Ko­matsu heads

Australian Forests and Timber - - Steep Slope -

KO­MATSU FOR­EST has an ex­ten­sive range of har­vest­ing heads con­sist­ing of 13 mod­els in­clud­ing three mod­els for de­bark­ing. Five of this range are sold in Aus­tralia with those be­ing; S132, S172, C144, C202E & C283 with weights from 1,400kgs to 2,900kgs.

In­ter­est­ingly two of the heads sold in Aus­tralia be­ing the C202E and C283 had much of their de­sign con­cept, de­vel­op­ment, and test­ing car­ried out in Aus­tralia due to the lo­cal re­quire­ment for har­vest­ing heads to han­dle heav­ier, tougher and rougher limbed trees. The fore­run­ners to these two mod­els were the 378E and 398 which have been very suc­cess­ful in Aus­tralia’s tough con­di­tions. These two new model num­bers now bring these into line with the other head prod­ucts num­bers.

Un­for­tu­nately, we had a prob­lem get­ting the spec­i­fi­ca­tion boxes right in the last edi­tion, so, here is the cor­rected ver­sion.
