Uniquely designed and listening to user feedback

Development work by MenSe Oy on the durable V-TEC feed wheel Komatsu C144/C164 was accomplished by listening to feed roller users and grab designers. The development work has resulted in a new solution, the V-Tec roller, which has even better grip and is cleaner. At the same time, damage to the wood surface is reduced.

What are V-TEC feed wheel Komatsu C144/C164 benefits?

The gripping surface machined onto the diagonal shank in the direction of the axle forms a circular outer sphere, which feeds timber evenly. Cutting length is achieved faster, the operation becomes more effective, improving profitability. The spikes on the diagonal shank provide sturdy support for the timber. The rollers provide excellent grip in both feeding directions, backwards and forwards. The grip also minimizes surface damage. Gripping pressure may be lowered, which also provides savings in fuel costs. Uniquely designed V-TEC feed wheel Komatsu C144/C164 has an open, light and non-clogging structure. The rollers are made of hard, abrasion resistant steel but still it's weight is only 26 kg.

Jani Taskinen comment about v-tec

Ponsse H6/H7/H8 Multi-tree V-TEC

"I've many work sites where we harvest simultaneously energy- and material trees.

V-TEC multi-tree works great on both types. Work would be very inefficient, if you had to changes feed wheels on every different tree type.

Comparing the V-TEC to other feed wheels what i've used, it's GRIP is amazing on normal pressures. You can't get it to slide. Lack of boron in Northern Savo pine trees causes them to have very lush branches, especially their tops are difficult to handle. I lost my nerve with standard feed wheels, because they clog up. V-TEC grip is always firm and it doesn't clog. At first i was afraid that V-TEC's sharp rib would damage the tree trunk. Rib marks were measured, they won't cause any harm. Contact area is large on the tree trunk so it doesn't leave any marks. Tree isn't a log if V-TEC does damage to it."

Ponsse H6/H7/H8 V-TEC

"You get more out of your harvester head with these feed wheels. Excellent grip. Bark passes through between the ribs and grip stays. Handling of the tree tops and birch became easier. Biggest difference that i noticed compared to other feed wheels is these are better with bigger logs and birch. I'll buy these again."

"I should've ordered these two years ago. Huge difference on grip and performance.

One hell of a change

- Power increased
- Winding trees goes through smoothly
- Harvester head is more silent
- Able to decrease gripping pressure
- Excellent grip
- Big or small trunks without a problem
- Cheap price
- Seals do not freeze (open structure prevents water from accumulating)"

Ponsse H6/H7/H8 V-TEC

"Amazing grip. Most obvious difference to previous feed wheels that tree tops comes through intact. Feeds well backwards and forwards. Calibration is easy when tree trunk's surface is smooth compared to standard feed wheels."

Ponsse H6/H7/H8 V-TEC

"Most amazing! You can lower gripping pressures considerably, from 90 to 70. Feeding speeds increased. Finds measures instantaneously. Only small dots on tree trunk = doesn't break the bark. I liked!! Not noisy. Goes through more smoothly than previous standard feed wheels. It's stupid to save money on the feed wheels. Money well spent."

John Deere H413 V-TEC

"Excelent grip. Doesn't damage the tree trunk. Very durable, almost 8000h used. Holds well in both directions, forwards or backwards. Ribs placed in interlaced order. At the begining it's tips get rounder but doesn't seem to affect performance. Doesn't clog. Gripping pressure is lower than on standard feed wheels. DOESN'T SHAKE."
