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.

Control Systems

Complete control systems

SPd5Bucking is a complete measurement and control system for control of the felling process in a forest harvester in accordance with StanForD. This is our most advanced system and has support for value bucking. The system is also fully integrated with dasa5 control and communication system. All communication with the operator is via dxPc, which is a mobile PC with Windows 10 operating system, and stores all information, e.g. statistics or instructions. The dxPc computer has a touchscreen, which facilitates the work for the operator considerably.

SPd5BuckingPrio is our intermediate system. The system has support for priority bucking and is equipped with a PC. SPd5BuckingPrio is a slightly impler bucking system combined with the power of a PC for reporting, communication and other programs. Bucking is based on priority lengths with or without diameter classes. SPd5BuckingPrio is ideal when value bucking and reporting is not required according to StanForD at the same time as needing a PC for reporting, communication and other PC-programs. All communication to the operator occurs via dxPc.

SPd5BuckingPrio-C is a bucking system that focuses on simplicity without compromising on head control, performance or productivity. SPd5BuckingPrio-C has support for priority bucking with or without diameter classes and has been specially developed for felling where there is no need for wireless production reporting or the use of PC programs. SPd5Bucking Prio-C runs the Windows CE operating system.

SPd5 cab box
Regardless of which system you choose above, you can get it with our SPd5 cab box. The cab box allows SPd5 cab modules do be installed quickly, efficiently and at the highest quality. The cab box is factory-fitted at SP and delivered completely finished and tested together with the head, which ensures a correct connection and trouble-free commissioning. Thanks to the electronics modules being mounted in a protected environment inside the box, problems caused by external damage such as moisture, dust, dirt and impact are minimized.
