Waratah 400 Series 4 Roller - H480C

The Waratah H480C harvesting head combines large timber cutting-power with an excellent delimbing quality throughout its diameter range.

Optimized feed force & speed are a result of new feed motor options. 400/630 cc motors provide high performance in early to late thinnings. 500/800780 cc motors are the preferred choice in late thinnings and regeneration fellings. The H480C gives an unprecedented excellent tree processing performance, especially in large timber. New feed roller arm geometry ensures that feed rollers have solid grip and reliably carry trunks in all diameter ranges. Operators also appreciate the continuous powerful four-wheel feed for efficient feeding with low friction.
