Effective, flexible and reliable harvester head in any kind of forest
The new Komatsu S132 is an extremely flexible and adaptable head, a superbly reliable and efficient tool even in the most extreme forests. And it is so thanks to the head’s basic design (two-wheel feed) and the knife control, Flex Friction Control. Flex Friction Control allows the regulation of the trunk’s position at the feed line through a sensor located at the vertical knife. This results in as low friction without sacrificing delimbing quality.
S132 performance reliability relies on, among other features, its robust design with a high strength steel frame to its smart hose routings and protecting head components such as the head computer. Significant productivity benefits include the powerful tractive force and the effective delimbing with three hydraulically operated delimbing knives and a fourth moving vertical knife.
