Syketec OY AB,  produce a range of stroke and combi harvester heads designed for  smaller base units. Ideally suited to mini-forwarders, smaller excavators and tractor based units. Syketec products are produced in Finland.

The stroke harvester JOBO ST  is developed for economical Harvesting  in first thinnings and bioenergy crops. Reliability and good delimbing results  are key feature. Simplicity and low weight are major attributes. The use of high tensile strength materials gives the possibility to achieve low weight.

JOBO ST75D Combi Combined stroke and roller feed

A major advantage of the stroke harvester is its strong feed force also at low oil flows. However, strong feed is not always needed and then stroke feed may feel slow.
Based on customer feedback Syketec developed a roller feed option which can even be retrofitted to the basic stroke harvester JOBO ST75C/D, this is then type designated JOBO ST75D Combi.

Combi version has four operating modes:
F1 - Combined stroke and rolls
F2 - Only rolls
F3 - MultiStem
F4 - MultiGrip

Under combined operation rolls can be selected during stroke and is only returning back to stroke if the feed button is released. Roller feed is feeding at about. 2,5 m/sec at full flow (80 l/min), this is more than double the speed of stroke feed.

Standard features & options

  • Length measurement with measuring roll

  • accuracy +/- 3 cm

  • Diameter measurement (option)

  • volume calculation

  • Weight with rolls 295 kg

JOBO ST75DEx  excavator featured JOBO ST75DEx

Thanks to its low weight the harvester JOBO ST75DEx can be fitted to excavators in the range 4 - 10 tons. Much depending on the oil capacity and availability of auxiliary hydraulics the harvester may be differently configured: 

1If two auxiliary lines are available for rotator and tilt, the harvester can be configured as for tractor use
Main line to the harvester head typically from the rock breaker line

2. The harvester may hold directional valves for both rotator and tilt
In this case the roller option is not available

Consult Syketec for more options and possibilities for applying JOBO harvesters to your excavator machine.

JOBO VH75 Combi Tractor Mounted processor

The Syketec tractor mounted  processor is specifically designed for use  where cranes are not commonly available fitted to tractors. Our specially designed tractor processor comes with its own crane. It is designed to carry our harvester head. With this processor you can fell, de-limb and cut to length, while sitting in the tractor. In difficult terrain or to increase the reach the hydraulic winch is handy.

Control systems

Syketec control systems are built in two basic configurations. The panel version holds both the display and the related controls in one compact unit. Sometimes a suitable place for mounting of the panel is difficult and then our split configuration (as per picture) may be a better option. Depending on the required features the size of the control panel may also be in two different sizes. The smaller unit CCD with a 3,7in display (shown here) and the larger MID with a 7in colour display. Both systems are CAN-bus based systems connected to the harvester head with a 7 x 0,75mm² PUR cable. The JOBO CAN MID also as standard holds joystick controls both for mA and voltage controlled (eg. Danfoss) systems.

Control system JOBO CAN MID
JOBO CAN MID is an advanced control and measuring systems built with high quality components and sophisticated control features. The base is a Linux display unit which provides excellent and easy to use menus to fine tune the harvester functions and to follow up the production, even at volume level.

Control system JOBO CAN CCD
The standard control system is JOBO CAN CCD which provides all the required features to handle the harvester head in normal operation. It allows user to set specific timers to tune the behavior of the harvester head depending on oil flows and temperatures. To set the species and require pre-selected lengths is made easy through simple menu selections.
