2 roller conversion?
« on: September 24, 2022, 08:41:54 AM »
Anyone ever run one? The speed increase seems appealing but I was told by a mechanic If I was in hardwood steady donít switch. Also I think the max stem diameter gets smaller do to the wheel size. Iím just trying to cover all my bases before I decide to buy different equipment to increase production.

Logmax has made fixed heads for some years.

This example of a fixed 2 roller Logmax 7000XT (4400lbs, 31 inch max cut) in 2011 predates Komatsu Forest's purchase of Logmax around a decade ago.



See if the current day Cypress electronics will work between a Timbco and fixed Logmax as they do for this 1996 Timbco/ dangle waratah.

Yes logmax is gaining ground here. See a few more with the fixed head guys. I think the tigercat 570 is a little faster. If I was to buy another fixed head used it would prolly be a logmax. Basically only for the cutting diameter and they are available used.

Heís not out of line on price. But thatís a lot of money if I only gain stem diameter. Iím sure Iíd gain more than that but would it cut twice as much wood as mine? I canít see that so thatís all kinda what I need to decide. See whatís my slow parts to get profits up but keep cost down🤷‍♂️
