woodcracker cl260 log grapple cutting head

NEW: Woodcracker® CL260 – compact, but powerful

The new and compact cutting head Woodcracker® CL260 from Westtech cuts strong trees up to 32cm with ease.

Even though the swift and cost-efficient Woodcracker® CL190 is still going strong, demand increased for an equally uncomplicated cutting head for an excavator next in size. Shortly before the Interforst fair in Munich, the Austrian manufacturer of forestry equipment, Westtech, introduces a new bigger cutting head for forestry and landscape maintenance, the Woodcracker® CL260.

„We designed the Woodcracker® CL260 to fulfil the demand of our customers for a bigger but cost-efficient cutting head for excavators between 6 and 14 tons. The new machine is compact but cuts trees with a remarkable diameter of up to 320mm in softwood”, states sales manager, Klaus Stadler. The cutting diameter in hardwood reaches up to 260mm.

Compact and cost-efficient

The Woodcracker® CL260 is a lightweight with only 350kg for its cutting diameter. The model stays affordable due to an optimized use of material and a smart and compact design. So small companies, rural farmers and foresters benefit from an appealing price-performance-ratio and an economical harvest.

Many applications for 6 to 14-ton excavators

Many landscape gardeners and contractors already own the right excavator for a Woodcracker CL. It has the right cutting diameter for green care along streets and forest edges or minor thinning. The optional available cylinder slewing gear enables a tilt of 48° each side to easily cut shrubbery or crooked trees.

High-tensile steel and cataphoretic painting (KTL)

The processing quality leaves nothing to be desired. The Woodcracker® is made of Hardox®-Steel which withstands high mechanical strains. The special cataphoretic painting which is mainly used in the automotive industry makes the machine non-corrosive and long-lasting.
