Introducing a saw unit with unrivalled productivity and operating economy.
We have set a new standard for modern forestry operations – reduced fuel consumption, less heat generation and fewer split logs are just some of the real benefits.
JPS R5500 FEATURES
Reduced fuel consumption
Fewer split logs
Prolonged drive sprocket life
Fewer instances of thrown chain
More rigid saw bar
Reduced heat generation
RPM’s reduced to half
JPS R5500 - A More Efficient Saw Unit
Having cut the RPM’s to half, and increased the torque, the JPS R5500 sawing unit is more efficient.
With a lower rotational speed and less heat generation, the JPS sawing unit can reduce fuel consumption during the sawing cycle of harvesting a tree by up to 15%. The fuel savings alone means that your investment will be recovered within one year.
By not pushing equipment to the limit, the service life is extended which in turn translates into lower operating costs, fewer disruptions and a contribution to a better environment.
Under certain conditions, the JPS R5500 sawing unit cuts up to 40% faster than its competitors. One of the major benefits of faster cutting is much less split logs.
The JPS R5500 features automatic chain tensioning which reduces downtime caused by chain slippage.
The R5500 offers unrivalled productivity and operating economy with a significantly reduced total operating cost that far outperforms older systems. The JPS R5500 sawing unit increases productivity, reduces fuel consumption and cuts
down on unwanted split logs – in a nutshell, this is an ideal product for modern forestry work.

JPS ROTARY ACTUATOR
We have also developed a completely new hydraulic rotary actuator that replaces the traditional saw bar cylinder. Because the actuator is designed using only three parts, it offers maximum reliability while the maintenance requirements are minimal. The unique rotary actuator is the central part of the JPS sawing unit concept as it serves as the mount
Because the actuator is designed using only three parts, it offers maximum reliability while the maintenance requirements are minimal. The unique rotary actuator is the central part of the JPS sawing unit concept as it serves as the mount
The unique rotary actuator is the central part of the JPS sawing unit concept as it serves as the mount for the saw unit in the harvester head. The motor is located on one side, and the bar mounts on the other. This means that they can be dismantled
independently. The motor can be left untouched when replacing the bar holder, and vice versa.
The compact design of the JPS rotary actuator and its lack of protruding parts make it easy to mount in different harvester heads.
JPS ROTARY ACTUATOR FEATURES
Integrated damping at end limits of travel
No external lubrication required
Unaffected by miscellaneous debris
Integrated swivel joint feature for saw bar lube
No external hoses or connections
