The most productive excavator mounted saw head

Gilbert has added a new range of excavator felling heads to its line of forestry equipment, developed in Canada 30 years ago. This new range is optimized for small forest management, biomass and energy renewal operations. In addition to its lower cost, it has the advantage of being easy to install and move with the excavator in smaller territories and spaces.
