Feller bunchers are Exᴛʀᴇᴍᴇʟʏ effective felling tools. Both clearcuts and thinnings can benefit from their use. Compared to ᴍᴀɴual felling, their ability to control the tree removal can reduce residual stand ᴅᴀᴍᴀɢᴇ. The entire tree is typically extracted to the landing because the feller buncher is incapable of processing. A separate limbing and topping operation must be completed before extraction if the slash is to be left in the woods.
When removing biomass is desired and the range of the bunching head is appropriate for the stems to be removed, feller bunchers are a good choice. The size of the feller-buncher that can be used depends on the type of treatment, such as thinning or clearcutting. An important factor to take into account is the ability to move around inside the stand without harming the residual. If the trees being felled are too large for a small machine but the spacing is too narrow for a large machine, then the ᴍᴇᴛʜod or the machinery must be changed.
For the operator’s safety, Feller bunchers are constructed with Rollover Protective Structures (ROPS) and Falling Object Protective Structures (FOPS). Operating on slopes still requires caution. A large tree can topple a feller buncher because it is heavy and tall and can be found on flat ground or a steep slope. the a person. the the a The ʀɪsᴋ of tipping may be increased by the uneven, broken ground. ings an an a aa aa an an a Broken teeth may be thrown very far and very quickly from these heads, which spin at Exᴛʀᴇᴍᴇʟʏ high speeds. People on the ground should exercise caution when near feller bunchers.
Feller bunchers are excellent at felling trees and positioning them for easy extraction. Processing must be done ᴍᴀɴually or with an additional piece of equipment because they do not process the tree. Feller bunchers make a good partner for grapple skidders, clam bunk skidders, and shovel operations due to their ability to construct and place bunches. A feller buncher, a grapple skidder, and some sort of processor at the landing make up the most typical system.
The research studies and reports on harvest systems that use feller bunchers are summarized in the list below. These reports can be used to gain an understanding of the productivity, effects, and applications of various feller bunching systems as well as some of their limitations. Remember that these reports describe specific systems and stand treatments as you read them. It may have unintended or unexpected effects to try to apply the lessons discovered from these reports to treatments and systems outside of the studies’ Sᴄᴏᴘe.
This is not a comprehensive list of feller buncher research. Visit the U.S. Forest Service Treesearch website for more details. Reports for studies conducted by scientists with the Forest Service Research and Development and their associates are available on this website.
