Title: Load Leveling of a CTL Cutting Head
The following references and brief descriptions are included with regard to their disclosed CTL cutting head arrangements:
US8066043, Combination forest biomass and tree harvester, harvesting head assembly, and methods for harvesting; Relates to a combination forest biomass and tree harvester, a harvesting head assembly, and methods for harvesting trees and forest biomass. In some embodiments, the combination forest biomass and tree harvester includes a self‐propelled vehicle base, a moveable arm, and a harvesting head assembly. The harvesting head assembly may include a frame member, a grabbing assembly, and a cutting assembly. The cutting assembly may include a primary cutting mechanism and a secondary cutting mechanism. As the combination forest biomass and tree harvester moves through a forest area, the cutting assembly may be used to cut trees and mow biomass.
US7562682, Hydraulic pruning attachment; A saw attachment for pruning trees, shrubs and undergrowth that can be used on a hydraulic vehicle, having auxiliary line connections for accepting attachments. The attachment has cutting blades located at the ends of a swing arm, which is mounted on a plate capable of holding a single, fixed angle of orientation from 0° to 90° with respect to the imaginary plane of the direction of travel of the vehicle. Depending on the type of host vehicle on which the attachment is used, the attachment can be mounted using either a connector plate or an articulated extension arm.
US4467849, Felling head; A felling head for use in harvesting trees. The felling head carries a pair of circular saws and means for positioning and gripping a tree to be felled. The saws are rotated and moved relative to the positioning and gripping means to, between them, cut through a positioned and gripped tree.
US5101873, Tree cutting apparatus; A tree cutting apparatus includes a frame having forward and rearward ends, with a pair of generally planar blades rotatably mounted on the forward end of the frame. The blades are mounted spaced apart within the same plane, each blade having a cutting edge extending around a portion of the periphery thereof. Each cutting edge has a forward and rearward end, with the cutting edge being spaced a distance from the rotational axis of each blade increasing from the forward end to the rearward end, such that the cutting edges of the blades move closer to one another ...
