A head designated EGS 595 as standard to H14, with a maximum cutting diameter of 63/72 cm.
Harvester Head EGS 596
The head has three feed rollers, two of which are located in supporting wheel arms that push the stem in towards the frame where the third roller is mounted. Using this principle the stem is held in a steady grip and supported by the rollers instead of the limbing knives. This allows the knife pressure to be lowered, which reduces friction against the stem and ensures better utilisation of the feed force.The upper and lower limbing knives and wheel arms are jointly controlled initially, but can also be operated individually. Diameter measurement is performed via sensors in the lower knives and length measurement by a separate free-running measuring wheel.
