Now the harvester head is also available with Ø12 in saw cutting. FARMI S230C is the only saw cutting harvester head in the world that can cut and de-limb trees without electricity. It is mounted to the place of a loading grapple and requires no extra hydraulics or electricity.Automatic Operation With Pressure-Controlled ValvesOperation of S230C harvesting head is based on pressure-controlled valves. Grapple close-button closes the grippers. When grapple-close button is kept pressed, pressure rises and pressure-controlled valves release oil flow to the de-limbing stroke cylinder. After de-limbing you can reverse by pressing grapple open-button. If you want to cut the tree, keep grapple close-button pressed, pressure rises and oil flow is guided to the cutting unit. S230C de-limbs the tree 0.5 meters per stroke. This means six de-limbing strokes to make a three meter tree trunk.Mechanical TiltS230C stays upright because of center of gravity. When you grab a tree and pressure rises, de-limbing head starts to move. De-limbing head hits the tilt body and locks against it firmly. After cutting you can choose the direction for felling, because the tree stays upright. When you press grapple-open button the de-limbing head reverses and the head is no longer locked in the upright position. Weight of the tree tilts the head to de-limbing position. When you drop the tree, S230C returns to upright position because of center of gravity.ModularityStructure of S230 and S230C is modular. The guillotine unit in FARMI S230 harvester can be replaced with a saw cutting unit. It is mounted to the same place and you only have to connect two hoses and bolts. Both S230 and S230C harvesting heads are lightweight and simple. S230C weighs only 530 lbs and requires only 40 l / min oil flow.Extension Boom Kit For ExcavatorS230C can also be installed to 5-8 ton excavators. For excavator installations we provide an extension boom kit. It includes an extension boom with 1.5 meter reach, quick coupler for the boom, rotator, link and all required hydraulics. S230C only requires one two-directional valve from the base machine.
