I haul off two guys that use them,and they are great in poplar and most softwoods! But you need atleast a 210 prentice size crane to have pulling power to limb with.

I have seen them used a lot in the interior of BC in the pine stands and Alberta.  They are predominately used for tree length operations, but have seen a few used for cut to length operations.  They are a very productive machine for sure (depending on the quality of the head), but overall, and of course depending on a number of factors like species, product, etc. they are a good machine, much cheaper than the alternative dangle head processor.

some well spent hours durring mud season with a welder can have you a homemade stripper delimber. they are made about 20 miles from me and they are simple. the hardest parts to get would be the bearings and bushings.

ive never used a stripper unit but i have used a homemade one in eastern hemlock. it reminds me of brushing my teeth.

i didnt get any pics. i was just filling in for an hour for an operator that was out.  it was actually attached to a 210 prentice if memory serves. 

all you need is a little arm that sticks out in the gullet to kick the top knife over onto the log. then enough weight on the knife to hold it closed while you pull the log through. the stripper just has that little arm on top. the homemade rig had some weights on the end of the arm to help hold it closed.

I believe we call them stroke delimbers. Not what many folks like to see on their lots leaving huge slash piles along the road. Unless your into burning or chewing it up some way for mulch. They are porcupine havens.

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)

I think you guys might be talking about two different things. A logger that cut a tract for us had a small clamshell type delimber mounted on the front of the trailer his loader was on, I think this is a stripper? A stroke delimber is a large stand alone unit like in the pic above.

Its all thats used around here, then the USFS burns them in the winter, or BTP chips them

We use a 210 b or c cant think right now With a ctr. Pitchures in my gallery. the problem is that the 210 is a little small still. If you are going to do any hard wood Pulp its really hard on it. You need a loader with a good fast strong swing so you can get your swing going to to pop off the limbs. Our loader is about worn out now from all the abuse it has taken from the delimber. All we do is pine but when we did hardwood we had to use chainsaws to top. Now we are useing a chainsaw to top even in pine pulp. Loader dont have the power to pull thru.
