SATCO Directional Felling Heads have proven to be very versatile enabling operators to fell, bunch, shovel log whole stems, and even load trucks (the SAT420 has an 80% load out rate of a conventional grapple). The directional felling heads provide economical entry into mechanical harvesting and are a proven system for single felling large trees using Cat® FM carriers as well as leveling track harvesters for steep terrain.
