Abstract

The idea is to introduce a free floating ring for removing debris from between the teeth of a feed wheel of a forest harvester head. In order to enable process twin stems, a wider measuring wheel should be used than normal. This has led to experiencing a common problem when working in certain wood types, and that is wheels used in a forestry application can become clogged with bark. This happens during feeding when the bark becomes detached from the stem of the tree and lodges between the teeth of the wheel. A free floating ring between the teeth of the wheel that is of a different diameter to that of the hub, this allows the ring to be pushed through the opposite side of the wheel during operation forcing the teeth clear of debris.
