The L870C feller buncher is a full size, super high production machine best matched to the most intensive and demanding steep slope final fell applications. The L870C excels in tough and rocky terrain, high cycle felling, oversized timber and extreme temperatures from the tropics to Siberia.

The FH400 leveling undercarriage has long track frames, a wide stance carbody and super duty leveling components. It all leads to rock-solid stability, poise and operator comfort on steep slopes.

The LX870C is equipped with a closed loop track drive system. The x-drive system offers outstanding speed and performance along with greater hydraulic efficiency on steep slopes.

With ample horsepower, a refined, efficient hydraulic system and high capacity cooling, the 870C delivers the performance, efficiency, reliability and uptime required for high production, around-the-clock operations. Component layout and access to daily maintenance points is unmatched.
