The new model combines improved operational performance, proven durability, and new serviceability features for high productivity and uptime.
Waratah Forestry Equipment has released the new HTH622B Series-III, the next generation of its HTH622B harvester head. As Waratahs most popular model in its size class, the HTH622B has proven itself as a reliable workhorse for Waratah customers worldwide. The updated HTH622B Series-III includes several new features that make its performance even smoother and faster. These include a new valve with better flow-through characteristics for reducing heat, while improving feed speed and sawing performance.
When coupled with the TimberRite H-16 control system, this translates to improved feeding performance, log handling and speed when single stem processing, and pronounced ¾” pitch saw performance. Additionally, a new measuring arm with 30 mm (1.2 in) more travel and sensor protection provide increased accuracy in measuring crooked wood and improved uptime.
In addition to enhanced performance, the HTH622B Series-III features several upgrades that make the machine even more durable for working in tough woods. A new twin retainer front knife and strengthened upper delimb castings each contribute to improved delimbing durability in the harshest applications. For increased strength and productivity, the head has a new tilt frame and optional integrated colour marking system. A newly styled and stronger valve cover and hinges as well as reinforced drive arm covers keep key components covered.
Additionally, an optional main saw box strengthening kit for harvesting can provide additional protection, and new top saw motor protection and seals help fight cold weather conditions to improve uptime.
The new HTH622B Series-III improves uptime with several updates that make servicing quicker and easier. Supplementing the new valve performance and reliability is faster access to the valve with new integrated handles, and tool-less entry – followed by an improved and simplified hose layout which provides optimum access and serviceability. Additionally, a larger saw oil filler makes fills faster with less spills. An improved pin retention also reduces stress on pins and need for servicing – maximizing uptime.
The Waratah HTH622B Series-III is available to customers in the United States, Canada, Latin America, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand and Russia. Source
