Feller bunchers are able to replace the work done by lumberjacks, typically doing the work of 10 to 15 men.

A feller buncher consists of a tracked or wheeled undercarriage, a power plant, an operator’s cab and a grabbing apparatus.

Today they are manufactured by Barko, Caterpillar, John Deere, Komatsu, Prentice, Timbco and others.
