Features and Specifications
When assessing the features and specifications of a tracked harvester, it's essential to consider the following aspects:
Look for the peak power rating of the harvester's engine. This indicates the maximum power output the machine can generate, contributing to its performance and productivity.
Max Boom Reach
Evaluate the maximum boom reach, which refers to the horizontal distance the harvester's boom can extend. A longer reach allows for efficient cutting and handling of trees in various positions and terrain.
Consider the tractive effort, which measures the harvester's pulling or pushing force. A higher tractive effort enables the machine to navigate challenging terrains and effectively maneuver in demanding conditions.
Assess the swing torque, determining the harvester's rotational force. A higher swing torque allows for smoother and more precise upper structure rotation, enhancing operational efficiency.
Determine the tail swing radius, which indicates the space required for the harvester's rear end to swing when turning. Consider the size of the working area and any potential space constraints when selecting a harvester with an appropriate tail swing radius.
Evaluate the harvester's tilt functionality, which refers to the ability of the cutting head or attachment to tilt. Tilt capability enhances the harvester's versatility, allowing for efficient cutting at different angles and positions.
