The PF-48 is a “fixed” controlled fell harvester head providing complete control of felled trees to the operator. This control allows the operator to cut and position trees during select thinning of hardwoods, the focal application for the PF-48, without damaging the residual stand. The one-of-a-kind four roller design has been field proven in tough hardwood applications for over 15 years resulting in a robust and well built product.
