VERSATILE, POWERFUL, SIMPLE AND EFFICIENT. THE ALL-IN-ONE TOOL THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

Designed entirely in Quebec, Metavic’s harvester heads have already revolutionized the logging industry. With just this one tool, you can cut, measure, prune and prepare your logs for loading in record time… And with sturdiness under all conditions. Our team will do the initial installation directly on your excavator, and you can then remove it and set it down as you wish. Simple, efficient and incredibly powerful! Even the handling, maintenance and repairs due to wear and tear are hassle-free. You can enjoy the independence, productivity… And the pleasure of operating like a pro!

FROM EXCAVATOR TO LOGGING MACHINE

Transform your excavator into a complete logging machine! The strength of Metavic harvester heads is that they are easy to install so that you can go from a simple excavator to a powerful tool capable of cutting, measuring and delimbing logs in the middle of the forest. Better yet, you can easily remove the harvester head to use your excavator for its original purpose. With its computer control system installed right in your cabin, with a screen and hand levers, you can reap the benefits of a system with ergonomic control that is easy to use and highly efficient.

EXCAVATOR PROTECTION AND REINFORCEMENT

Besides the initial installation of the harvester head, Metavic’s experts provide comprehensive protection and reinforcement for your excavator. Custom modifications and any necessary structural additions will allow you to carry out your logging operations without fear, either for the machine or the operator.

SMOOTH AND PRECISE OPERATION

Contrary to other harvester heads on the market, those manufactured by Metavic do not produce an impact or jerking motion when measuring logs. As a result, you can reduce the wear on your machine and work more comfortably… and for a longer time!

Another distinct advantage is the performance and ultra-precise measurement of our cutting system. With their choice of 6 lengths for each mode, our harvester heads allow you to handle all types of wood with great efficiency. In addition, our electronic systems offer unparalleled water-tightness―an advantage that makes all the difference when you consider the damage that can be caused by bad weather and humidity in our forests.
