The efficiency, economy and compact size of the PONSSE H6 harvester head makes it the best general harvester head on the market. The PONSSE H6 harvester head is highly versatile, and its use ranges from thinning sites with small trees to regeneration felling.

The large opening and precise controls make working easy. Thanks to wide tilt movements combined with quick and powerful feed and cutting, the PONSSE H6 is a highly reliable harvester head for all types of sites. The short and durable structure, large feed rollers and excellent delimbing capacity of the PONSSE H6 harvester head, as well as the low grip friction of the knives, are features that guarantee high productivity in difficult conditions as well. The PONSSE H6 harvester head is also excellent for multistemming, where the operation is based on the controls of feed rollers and standard delimbing knives. When the machine grabs a new trunk, the feed rollers hold the trunk in place in the harvester head while the knives grab a new tree. Multi-stemming considerably speeds up harvesting and improves the result on sites with small trees. The multi-stemming function does not weaken the harvester head’s features when handling single trunks.
