John Deere H270 Series II harvester head is a robust and capable harvester head for regeneration felling. The H270 Series II has long delimbing knives, and a wide opening. Harvester heads equipped with two feed rollers are suitable for crooked stems. This makes the H270 Series II harvester head particularly good for harvesting hardwood, but it is also designed to be used for softwood.
The improvements to H270 Series II harvester head include new steel rib rollers and top knife options, new stump treatment option and new multi-tree-handling system.
The angle of the saw box top plate has been changed to avoid snow from packing inside the saw box. In the frame, a stonger valve cover gives better protection and is easy to open and close.
The H270 Series II can fell trees up to 650 mm in diameter. Knife geometry ensures quality delimbing from large to small diameters. Steel rib rollers give excellent grip with minimum feeding damage.
This harvester head is ideal for the larger harvesters 1270E IT4 and 1470E IT4.
