Harvesterhead H 60 BW

Feed force

Ponsse Harvesterkopf H 60 BW 

The very powerful H60bw harvester head has large feed rollers already familiar from the H73. The H60bw, with its large rollers, is at its best working on thick-barked twisty trunks,. The new H60bw roller frames can also be supplied as a kit to convert the  H60 and H60e models.

There is two motor size option - 630 cc or 470 cc. The smaller engines offer greater feed speed and better operating efficiency, while the larger engines provide greater feed force at a slightly lower speed.

Colour marking (hydraulic) 

Stump handling (hydraulic) 

Floating tilt: As a standard the tilt works with
on/off - controls so that when the tilt is down,
the cylinder presses the harvester head down continuously. With a floating tilt the harvester
head can be set to swing freely when in the
down position.
