SP 761 LF - compact and heavy duty all-rounder

The SP 761 LF is a compact, heavy duty and high performance harvester head. It is designed according to SP´s Low Friction principle for minimum friction and maximum productivity. The SP 761 LF is suited for working on both large wheel based harvesters as well as tracked harvesters and excavator carriers.

The high capacity in combination with the compact, protected and heavy duty design makes the SP 761 LF able to handle a variety of different demanding harvesting applications with great performance. Regardless if the task at hand is in large diameter soft wood, crooked and limby hardwood or dense mixed wood stands you can count on the SP 761 LF to get the job done. Equipped with the specially designed processing knives and a topping saw the SP 761 LF becomes a dedicated processing head with great performance processing decked wood out of a pile. The SP 761 LF truly is a compact and heavy duty all-rounder.

The SP 761 LF reaches top performance in stands with a diameter of 20 to 56 cm (8 - 22”) bhd, but is thanks to the LF principle also capable of efficiently working larger tree sizes.

We reserve the right to change specifications and design. Harvester heads pictured may have some extra equipment. All stated measurements/values are approximate and refer to standard equipment.

LF – Maximum production and minimum friction

LF stands for “Low Friction” and refers to the very low friction that arises between trunk and harvester head in the LF series. LF minimises the friction during feeding, thereby maximising the harvester head’s performance and production. The low friction also minimises damage to the trunk, wear on the harvester head and fuel consumption.

The LF harvester heads have a low weight in relation to their capacity, and their compact design means that they can also be manoeuvred easily in dense stands. LF comprises four smart systems that help to minimise friction and maximise production.

Accessories and equipment

All of our harvester heads come with a high level of equipment as standard. However, a number of different accessories are available in order to optimise the harvester head for different needs, carriers and felling conditions. The most common accessories are described below.
