Cutlink

Vallius Cutlink is incredibly fast, silent, safe and strong attachment for cutting small-diameter wood - even up to 15cm diameter.

 

CUTLINK is a revolutionary innovation limiting also damages to yourself and to the surrounding environment: no flying rocks and no sparks that could cause a forest fire.

 

 

Revolutionary innovation for mechanical clearing of small-diameter wood

CUTLINK cleaner is simple and efficient tool for clearing all types of small-diameter wood.

CUTLINK is a handy and reliable solution for both professional forestry operators and those who manage their forests themselves. It is equally useful for tending seedling stands and cleaning unwantend brush from harvesting sites or near power lines, roads and ditches.

The device is light in weight and places no great requirements for the hydraylics of the carrier. It can therefore be mounted on machines of different sizes, from small agricultural tractors to excavators.

Innovative technology for safety and efficiency

The CUTLINK technology is based on simple solution: stems are fed continuously to be blades by conical screws, and the work is not interrupted by unwanted matter hitting the blades. The stems are not crushed or ground by the screws, but are cut as if by rotating guillotine cutter as they move against the rear blade.

Thanks to the low rotation speed (300 rpm), the screws do not throw splinters, stoner or debris into the surroundings. The device is thus safe to use even near dwellings or in the vicinity of rocks, rubble, fences and other structures. The conical screw technology does not require a carrier with a high rotation speed, which saves fuel and reduces noise.

Lightweight and low in maintenance

CUTLINK is manufactures in Finland for professional use. Installed at the end of a boom, the device deals with any kind of timber up to a diameter of 11 cm (and even up to 15cm).

The device is agile and easy to steer, thanks to being light in weight (from 220 kg upwards). It is resistant to shocks and eventual contact with the ground, allowing the operator to focus on steering the device for an optimal result.

The wearing parts are made of Hardox 400 steel. In addition its efficiency, the device requires little maintenance. It contains three lubrication points, and the adjustable blades may be sharpened with an angle grinder (about once a week is our recommendation). After more wear, the blades may be built up by welding or replaced.
