Finite
Element Analysis

Finite Element Analysis (FEA), combined with computer-aided motion analysis software, allows our design team to eliminate structural “hotspots” where structural strength is critical to the long-term integrity of the product. Learn more.




Why a Bar Saw?





Why a Pierce Bar Saw?

• Strong, durable saw that is not “disposable” after a short lifespan.
• Strong, simple structure. Not a pasted together weldment.
• Primarily suited for the applications of the Pacific Northwest and Western Canada.
•Does not require frequent reconditioning after each season.
• Does not require structural reinforcements before it cuts a single tree.


FEATURES



(3) 4” HIGH PRESSURE GRAB ARM CYLINDERS OFFER GREATER CLAMPING FORCE FOR BIG WOOD APPLICATIONS.
OPTIONAL - 3.5" CYLINDERS
HIGH STRENGTH, HEAVY-DUTY FRAME (AS OPPOSED TO A CUT-AND-PASTE WELDMENT) OFFERS THE PBS 3440 GREATER LONG-TERM STRUCTURAL LIFE.
40 DEGREE LATERAL TILT SYSTEM WITH LARGE "ROTEK-STYLE" BEARING AND HD CYLINDER DEMONSTRATES SUPERIOR TILT POWER.
OPTIONAL - 350 DEGREE ROTATION
¾” PITCH SAW SYSTEM WITH SUSPENSION MOUNT.
36” CUTTING CAPACITY.
SAW OIL TANK IS BOLTED ONTO FRAME, RATHER THAN BUILT INTO THE FRAME STRUCTURE, THUS AVOIDING THE RISK OF LEAKS CAUSED BY STRESS CRACKING IN THE FRAME.
