Why Choose a Barko Harvester

Why choose a Barko Harvester/Feller Buncher?

At a time when many forestry equipment manufacturers opted to abandon the market for mid-size harvesters in favor of focusing strictly on bigger units, Barko recognized the continuing demand for machines in this weight class. But rather than just supplying a placeholder to meet basic needs for this niche, Barko instead introduced a brand new product line that is purpose-built from the ground up to deliver exceptional durability, maneuverability and productivity.

Barko’s harvesters/feller bunchers were developed with extensive input from leading engineers, forestry professionals, and, most importantly… end user customers – the very people who make their living off the performance of these machines.

Barko Power

POWER

Though not the biggest machines on the market, Barko harvesters do not lack for performance. The 45,500-pound Barko 240B is driven by a 225-horsepower, Tier 4 Cummins QSB6.7 diesel engine that provides superior power and optimal fuel efficiency for reduced operating costs.

Barko Maneuverability

MANEUVERABILITY

Power-to-weight ratio is evident when observing the agility of Barko harvesters. The 240B has a maximum tractive effort of 65,833 foot-pounds, along with superior drawbar pull – better than 1.3 to 1 ratio – to handle steep hills and rough terrain with ease.

Barko IQAN controls

IQAN CONTROLS

The brute strength of the harvesters is complemented by responsive IQAN hydraulic controls.

Barko Attachment Flexibility

Many competitors try to insist their machines should only use heads they manufacture. Barko gives you the flexibility to choose from a range of factory-approved attachments, allowing you to select the best head for your application.

Barko Visibility

In an industry where safety is of utmost importance, the state-of-the-art operator’s station provides optimum operator comfort and excellent visibility around the entire working area.
