Product Teaser

POWER & ACCURACY THAT’S RIGHT ON THE MONEY, EVERY TIME.


Built strong to handle big timber, other processing tools just don’t measure up to the superior design of Pierce delimbers. Measuring from a lineal steel boom assures you of precision accuracy – and greater efficiency – time after time. Our delimbers shine in large diameter timber, heavy limb applications, irregular logs, multi-stem processing and multiple sorting requirements, guaranteeing that you get the most value out of every stem. When it comes to working in challenging forest conditions, it pays to have the right equipment for the job. And of course North American made, as is all Pierce equipment. Got a tough job? These delimbers can hack it!


THIS PRODUCT LINE FEATURES THESE TECHNOLOGIES :

NEW!
Brake System


Eliminate boom drift with our new PMD 3348 Brake System. It directly interfaces with the existing drive motor, and is designed to eliminate boom drift while cutting. The brake initiates when either saw is activated.

A kit is available for existing machines. Contact Pierce Parts Sales for kit pricing and availability. (800) 824-3637.

Why a Stroke Delimber?
Produces maximum value with minimum waste.



North American made, as is all Pierce equipment.

Our popular PMD 3348 is designed to work harder, perform more efficiently, and delivery accurate, high quality logs under the most punishing conditions. The powerful boom drive motor and 140D drive chain offers unrivaled pulling power. ‘Stop on mark’ measuring technology eliminates searching for the correct measurement. A forward front grab arm postioned only inches away from the top saw virtually eliminates slabbing. And, a centralized lube system means easier maintenance and longer work life.

Together with its superior delimbing head, a high strength monoboom and efficient hydraulics, the PMD 3348 adds up to one powerful package that produces more processed timber at the end of the day.
