The small and agile cutting head WOODCRACKER® CL is a loyal companion, not only for farmers. Landscapers, foresters and municipal authorities already use the WOODCRACKER CL190 permanently. Due to its flexible and simple installation to usual carrier vehicles, small trees and bushes up to 32 cm in diameter are felled with ease.

What you should know:

Application areas:

Suitable in small wood areas as well as in large-scale forests for quick thinning and forest care.

The cutting head WOODCRACKER CL is faster and more flexible compared to manual felling with a chainsaw. The machine is installed on small excavators without great adjustments and is immediately usable. The WOODCRACKER CL can also be attached to farm loaders. The easy use allows for fast landscape maintenance.

Caution: Woodcracker CL is not suitable for dangerous tree felling. Secure hold of cut material can not be guaranteed.
In this case we recommend our Woodcracker C series.

In hard wood up to 26 cm Ø
In soft wood up to 32 cm Ø

Enables fast closing of cutting unit, increases harvest performance and reduces fuel consumption.

Durable and low-wear cutting system

The machine is very robust due to its few movable parts. Also, the utilised blade is resistant and easy to replace.

Who works with WOODCRACKER CL:

Landscapers and foresters more...

Manual labour is quite common for landscapers and foresters. It is exhausting and what’s more, dangerous. But usually they already own vehicles for the use of a cutting head. Landscapers and foresters benefit from a great price-performance-ratio. That makes mechanical harvesting with the WOODCRACKER very cost-efficient.

Forest contractors more...

Many forest contractors trust in the quality of WOODCRACKER forest machines by now. Especially when it’s about harvesting bigger trees and processing wood. The WOODCRACKER CL is the perfect add-on for their existing fleet. Now also weak trees and bushes can be removed quickly. Therefore, they can provide new services.

Gardeners more...

Landscape gardeners provide a wide range of services, from the perfect floral arrangement to tree pruning of centuries-old oaks. The cutting head WOODCRACKER CL enriches their service range and differentiates them from competitors.

Professionals from municipal authorities more...

Communities, urban administrations and road maintenance staff take care of clean streets, cleared paths and the maintenance of public green space every day. Suitable and durable tools are essential to stay within a small public budget. Moreover, landscape maintenance on public streets must be carried out in a very short time to avoid waiting times. The CL is the ideal and robust tool for municipal authorities for fast and easy landscape maintenance.

"I looked for a safe and simple option to remove shrubbery from the edge of the forest. Westtech attached the CL190 on my existing farm loader without further ado. Now I have a compact and flexible working equipment for wood harvest."
Rudolf Kohlberger
Upper Austria
„I use the WOODCRACKER CL190 for wood harvest and to remove shrubbery from slopes. I chose the CL190, because I already have got a 7 ton excavator, that I normally use for digging. I can switch between these attachments very quickly, because they are both easy to install.“
