There is a range of sizes of these excavator-mounted feller-bunchers to suit machines of different sizes, the two on show at LAMMA being able to handle trees of up to 230mm and 320mm diameter respectively.

In work, one set of jaws grabs hold of the trunk while a second cuts its way through the timber. Prices range from £9,000 to £12,000 with a rotator option adding a further £2,000-£3,000.
