ECO Log has broadened its range with the introduction of its very own series of harvester heads.

Consisting of four models, the new range is intended to make the Swedish firm a ‘complete forest machine manufacturer’, offering machines and solutions for profitable and productive forestry.

The 461 LF is described as a versatile and rapid low-weight head that easily handles thinning, even in the most hard-to-reach areas.

The 561 LF is said to be a highly productive all-round head, capable of handling everything from thinning low-grade timber to basic final felling.

The 661 LF is described as a strong and versatile high-performance head for any kind of final felling.

The 761 LF is the largest head in the range. Described as powerful and reliable, it is intended to be used for the toughest final felling operations.

The heads have been equipped with Eco Log Saw Control, a patented system designed to optimise every cross-cut, regardless of conditions such as tree species and type of felling.

Anders Gustafson, Eco Log CEO, said: “Our new harvester heads are working great and the reactions from customers who have tried them tell us that they are incredibly fast and have highly dependable length measuring. The foundation of the design is the result of 40 years of development, quality and knowledge that have now been customised and further developed to achieve the highest efficiency in combination with Eco Log harvesters.

“We know from before that our harvesters are characterised by their high productivity. With our new series of harvester heads, we are now taking productivity to yet another level.”

Mr Gustafson added: “We believe a lot in our new harvester heads and it feels really great to present them along with Eco Log Saw Control to the market, widening our range even more. Naturally, we will also continue to offer Log Max harvester heads like before. This gives customers who choose Eco Log access to a very wide range with a great variety of options – exactly as it should be.”
