Small tree harvester
« on: May 14, 2022, 06:07:17 PM »
I need some help. Somewhere in this forum there is a thread from a guy in Montana that modified a tracked skidsteer to cut small timber and extract it from thick stands. I'd like to see that thread again and see if I can talk with that guy but I can't find the thread. As I recall it was about 4-5 years ago that I saw the thread. I remember that he modified that machine himself. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
BH/7RF

There are a lot of attachments for compact track loaders and wheel skid steers. Wide range of tracks/ a few different track attachments for more grip.
Depends on the size of the trees.

Ryans dangle head on Bobcat


Timber tale (rear grapple) and shear on compact track loader.


The Bell TH120 could have done with some more development. No rubber tire problems like on the 3 wheel logger models. Visibility better. Saw & engine are a bit further away from the operator. Single grouser d3 spec tracks for a bit more traction. Not a high cost like the multiwheel Euro built wheel harvesters. To cut worthless timber you require a low price machine.

I remember the thread you are talking about, but I can't remember his name. He had an ASV he built a disc bunching head for, and a seperate dangle grapple for moving the wood.

Thanks Barbender, That is exactly the thread I was looking for. It appears that he hasn't been on this site since 2017. Is he here under another name?
