DRIVEN TO OUTPERFORM
The forest industry—it’s about higher productivity and lower costs. Logging operations have used this formula for many years in order to stay competitive in today’s aggressive lumber market. The consistent implementation of new technologies is the way to make that formula work.
The KTI TreeKing’s unique design increases productivity by decreasing ﬁber damage and down-time, allowing multi-stemming, all the while raising the bar with incredible accuracy and reliability. Decreased down time with less moving parts, simpliﬁed construction and interchangeable components. All this capability in one cost-effective, cutting-edge machine.
The TreeKing signiﬁcantly increases productivity with the capability to multi-stem up to 8 logs at a time, while not compromising length accuracy (with optional indexing plate) or ﬁber quality.
The delimbing knives open to a 36” width to gather multiple stems from the deck.
Replacing the traditional feed rollers with grab arms allows the TreeKing to process logs with minimal contact to the tree. This results in clean, quality logs on the deck.
LOG PROCESSING DIVERSITY
The TreeKing’s strong design allows it to tackle the gnarliest trees with diameters up to 30”. The real beneﬁt comes in it’s equally incredible ability to handle small wood down to 3”, eliminating the need for a big-wood and a small-wood head to do all your cut-to-length processing.
No matter what’s in the pile, the TreeKing can handle it. Increased ﬁber recovery is realized with the nimble ability to handle poor log proﬁles (gnarly wood) in the boreal forest.
Ergonomics and simplicity of use reduces operator fatigue. The TreeKing uses less repetitive operator inputs, effectively cutting down on the occurrence of fatigue-related mistakes and accidents.
In keeping with the theme of less moving parts, the TreeKing also employs an in-house designed & manufactured non-contact linear measuring system–the KTI Controller.
This cut-to-length feature operates a quick stroke of the head and a cut. Easy to operate and extremely accurate — every time.
The innovative design of the TreeKing has allowed KTI to offer even more beneﬁts. A perfect combination of mechanics and hydraulics allows the TreeKing to bring nearly 18,000 ft/lb of delimbing force into action.
This industry-leading innovation allows operators access to processing capabilities which surpass traditional-style processors.
SMOOTH, FAST INSTALLATION
The long, drawn out, expensive wait for your new head is over! The connectivity of the TreeKing design allows for seamless carrier interface. One pressure and one return line as well as a power cable is all that are required to install the head.
It uses the existing hinge pin on the carrier and requires no modiﬁcations to the boom itself.
KTI has invested over 50,000 hours of product testing with the TreeKing before the ﬁrst Canadian head was manufactured. The 1500 hour limited warranty is a testament of KTI’s conﬁdence in a winning product.
This unprecedented machine, its design, and productive ability is leading the forest industry. Whether you’re processing big or small wood—the TreeKing is your answer.
