The 1170e Harvester Tackles Trees and Foliage with Ease

The 1170E Harvester machine withholds the ability to strip down forests in a remarkably short amount of time. The hydraulic-based crane clings on to the base of trees and cuts through them as if they weren't entirely solid.

A 30-inch long chain saw is used to devour the wood. Four separate motors are also used to pull trees through the Harvester, detaching the logs from leaves and branches. They are then cut and stacked neatly, adding order to the whole process. Lumber that measures up to 24" inches in diameter can be chucked into the engine, and it is for this reason that is has been a go-to contraption for anyone in the forestry sector.
