A felling head is an attachment that can be mounted to the chassis of a base carrier, or mounted to a boom. Felling heads also include bunching heads and processing heads.
These machines are capable of holding more than one stem while cutting. Based on their method of cutting, they come in a variety of styles. Their cutting methods include disc saw, shear, and bar saw. Stems are held by the machine’s grabbing, hinged, accumulator arms. Disc saws, of course, are large steel dicks with sharp cutting teeth. One has to be careful of flying teeth that may break off the blade. When working in woodland areas, caution is advised because of sparks when hitting rocks or hard objects. A popular modification of the disc saw is the intermittent saw, which retracts its blade when not cutting.
Processing heads can feel trees and also process stems. Common processing heads are capable of delimbing. They are also built to process only one tree stem at a time. The processing head’s components include a bar saw, knives for delimbing, and feed rollers
