Harvester Head Pressure Control

  • The ability to accurately control pressure is critical on forestry harvesters. One of the key measuring points is to control the pressure on the feeder rollers to obtain maximum speed and grip on the tree when send through the harvester head. Pressure transmitters are vital in this application to secure smooth operations.
