A new harvester head has been designed for the Ponsse Bear harvester, but it is ideal for track-based machines. The H8HD Euca is an effective tool in forests where the diameter of eucalypt stems can be up to 50 cm (19.7 in).
The new H8HD Euca is able to efficiently carry out the task of debarking. The geometry of the new harvester head’s debarking knives and feed rollers improves the efficiency of H8HD Euca in debarking and processing both smaller and larger stems. Ponsse’s heavy-duty frame structure means that the new harvester head can withstand the extreme loads of track-based machines.
The Ponsse H8HD Euca harvester head has been optimised to debark trees. Its feed rollers and debarking knives provide good debarking results. The solid frame and robust tilt frame give the harvester head the durability needed in debarking. Automated functions control saw movements according to the tree diameter and saw bar position and allow trees to be cut quickly.
All Ponsse harvester heads are manufactured and designed at the Ponsse factory in Vieremä. The design process is comprehensive and covers, in addition to mechanical parts, the electronic control system, controls and software. The manufacturing process is highly automated to ensure high quality and measuring accuracy. Durable hoses and delimbing knives form an important part of reliability.
