One-pass debarking

Meets the requirements for one-pass debarking on at least 50% of stems (allowing for deviations in both stands and individual trees).

Unique cutting function

Unlike other heads, the X164E uses extremely powerful hydraulic shears to cut each stem. This results in reduced costs for service, maintenance and downtime, as well as improved machine and operator safety. 

Effective debarking

The smart feed system design ensures effective debarking by rotating the stem through the head, enabling the feed rollers to maintain optimal contact with the stem.

Hose routing

The Komatsu X164E has protected hosing that is routed inside the head, ensuring both greater reliability and reduced costs for spare parts.

Bark in shorter lenghts

The head shreds the bark into shorter lengths, minimising process disruptions at sawmills and supporting the planting of new trees.
