And what's new in forestry mulchers?
Are you curious? AGRITECHNIKA 2017 - Hannover from November 12th to 18th in hall 26, booth F13.
STARFORST - The top choice in forestry mulchers is showing itself in a whole new light. The model, which has been popular for over 10 years, has undergone major changes. The new STARFORST with its new overall working width is perfectly suited to tractors and road traffic. And so the STARFORST is relaunched with working widths of 210, 235 and 260 cm. Every centimetre of the tractor’s width is covered, and the ground is worked uniformly. But this is just one of the innovations that distinguishes STARFORST. Another novelty is the decision by SEPPI M. to introduce a new rotor with tools with a single tooth in very aggressive carbide. SEPPI M. has named it the MONO TIP V-LOCK. This rotor is even more efficient on large logs and thicker wood. A new system of tools is also being introduced; the V-Lock! The advantages of the new MONO TIP V-LOCK rotor are:
- Less rotor wear
- Better balancing
- Tool change made even easier
- Optimised connection between tool and holder
And what in practice is the V-Lock?
Fixed tools, currently used on SEPPI M. forestry mulchers and tillers, have so far been screwed onto the flat surface of the support and distinguished by two rear side "wings”. The new V-Lock system changes the tool’s shape to a "V", thereby modifying the support that hosts it. In this way, the tool is attached even more firmly to the support. In addition, the single tungsten carbide tooth, with a sharper point, is more aggressive.
Let's get back to what's new on the STARFORST: In addition to restyling the design and tilting system of the ADAM transmission, already found on the standard version, the forestry machine has been further equipped against wear. Inside the casing there are anti-wear plates in HARDOX® material, which can be substituted. This feature has already been applied to SEPPI M. stone crushers and tillers. In addition, the protection belts with material deflector and tempered steel anti-wear skids offer further protection to the machine.
In this simple, functional and practical design there is now that much more power! The transmission has been strengthened and is now suitable for tractors from 180 to 300 hp! Let this Power pack speak for itself! We would like to introduce you to our new "star" at the 2017 Agritechnica trade fair. Visit our stand in Hall 26 Stand F13.
SEPPI M. offers a solution for every class of tractors. Our forestry equipment is available from 80 to 500 hp. Most of our forestry machines are also available in a hydraulic version, for attaching to excavators, wheel loaders, or high-powered tractor hydraulics.
*The updated version of STARFORST II will be available from January 2018
