.404 vs. 11H?

.404 vs. 11H

.404 BENEFITS:
.404 top saw cuts faster and smoother.

.404 saw systems are more economical in initial purchase cost than 11H.

Auto-tensioning and saw safeties.


11H BENEFITS:
11H saw bars are more robust, resilient and longer lasting than .404. 11H requires less chain sharpening than .404.

Auto-tensioning and saw safeties.

PROCESSING HEADS

It’s no surprise our customers agree that Pierce and Denharco processing equipment set the standard in reliability and uptime. The reliability that delivers the production and log quality that loggers demand. This is the goal we strive to surpass everyday with all of our forestry attachments. The same can be said of the Titan 22 and Titan 23. Already exceeding performance expectations, our Titan family will tackle any job with ease.



ADVANCEMENTS THAT ARE A CUT ABOVE!

The Titan 22 is ready to harvest at the stump or process from a log deck! Extensive market and product research has resulted in a processing head that rivals the success of our very own Pierce and Denharco delimbers.

The Titan 22 features an additional valve section which provides more flow to the drive system for greater speed and feed power, as well as to the butt saw for faster, cleaner cuts. It also features a heavy duty frame designed to provide extra support where it’s necessary for the rigors of North American timber and conditions. As is all of our Pierce and Denharco processing equipment, the Titan family is powered by Pierce’s Intellitec Measuring System.

FEATURES

STRUCTURE
HEAVY DUTY FRAME HAS BEEN EXTENSIVELY ANALYZED USING COMPUTER-AIDED FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS (FEA).

THIS HAS RESULTED IN A STRUCTURE DESIGNED TO REDUCE AND EVENLY DISTRIBUTE STRESS LOADS, WHILE PROVIDING EXTRA SUPPORT WHERE IT'S NECESSARY FOR THE RIGORS OF NORTH AMERICAN TIMBER AND CONDITIONS.
SWING-OUT TOP SAW DOOR, DESIGNED TO MINIMIZE STRUCTUREAL STRESS LOADS, ALLOWS FOR EASY MAINTENANCE TO THE TOP SAW SYSTEM.
FABRICATION BELOW TOP KNIFE ACCOMPLISHES 2 GOALS:

1) IT FUNNELS LOG INTO THE THROAT OF THE HEAD, EMPHASIZING THE LOG SLIDING UNDER THE TOP KNIFE PROPERLY, AND
2) IT ELIMINATES ANY IMPOACT TO TEH TOP UNDER-SIDE OF THE TOP KNIFE.
HANGING BRACKET (C-FRAME) IS DESIGNED AS A SINGLE FORMED PIECE, IN LIEU OF A COMPLICATED FABRICATION, ASSURING STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY.
EXPANDER PINS ARE USED IN DRIVE AND DELIMB ARMS TO ENSURE CONTINUED SNUG PIN/BORE FIT.
ALUMINUM BRONZE BUSHINGS (IN LIEU OF NYLON BUSHINGS) ARE IN ALL LOCATIONS EXCEPT DELIMB ARM LINK WHERE STEEL BUSHINGS ARE USED.
DRIVE SYSTEM
3 POWERED CAST STEEL FEED WHEELS WITH THUMBNAIL TRACTION.
DELIMBING SYSTEM
DUAL CAST DELIMB ARMS, 1 CAST FLOATING TOP KNIFE.
SAW SYSTEMS
.404 TOP & BUTT SAWS.

TILT
SINGLE CYLINDER TILT SYSTEM.
HYDRAULIC SYSTEM
LARGER CARRIERS WILL BENEFIT FROM THE ADDITIONAL VALVE SECTION DESIGNED TO PROVIDE MORE FLOW TO THE DRIVE SYSTEM FOR GREATER SPEED AND FEED POWER, AS WELL AS TO THE BUTT SAW FOR FASTER, CLEANER CUTS.
SERVICABILITY
HINGED PEDESTAL PLATFORM OFFERS EASY MAINTENANCE ACCESSIBILITY TO BOTH HEAD ELECTRICAL AND HYDRAULICS.
FOR ACCESS TO ELECTRICAL SYSTEM, TILT TOP COVER.
FOR ACCESS TO HYDRAULICS, SIMPLY TILT ELECTRICAL PLATFORM OUT OF THE WAY.

AHEAD OF IT’S TIME!

The Titan 23 is ideally suited for the popular 27-29 metric ton forestry excavators, all the while capable of handling 90-95% of what a large 24” head is capable of, yet for far less machine and attachment investment. It features a self cleaning measuring wheel system with a tapered wheel center to reduce clogging from bark and other debris.

The 3rd arm helps support the weight of the log while processing forward and in reverse. And, the linked drive arms are able to move laterally and in unison with the stem’s crooks and irregularities, allowing you better quality delimbing, particularly evident in hardwood applications. As is all of our Pierce and Denharco processing equipment, the Titan family is powered by Pierce’s Intellitec Measuring System.
