The new AFM 75 is a tough-built processing head with high feeding power and excellent geometry for the most demanding logging operations worldwide.

With its new HD frame and pins made from SSAB Ruukki Scandinavian quality steel and nylon bushings it can fit on different tracked base machines.

A wide tilt angle and the geometry of the front knives will guarantee an efficient and ergonomic way to pick up logs in steep slopes. Being designed in tight cooperation with our customers, the new design of the AFM 75 offers easy access for daily maintenance and hydraulic hoses change, maximizing our customer’s production.

Optional feeding motors and rollers make the new AFM 75 a perfect tool for harvesting and debarking operations in the most difficult species of plantation grown eucalyptus by offering good debarking results during the first feed. AFM-Forest proportional saw system and saw control will guarantee a fast and efficient sawing in all tree species.
