Description: The FB7 is a first-generation prototype continuous feller-buncher manufactured by Hyd-Mech Engineering, Ltd. of Woodstock, Ontario. It was developed and funded by the National Research Council of Canada to harvest short-rotational bioenergy plantations of hybrid poplar. The development specifications were for stumps with diameters of up to eight inches and with a continuous harvesting speed of 1.5 mph in rows with trees ten feet apart. The carrier, an articulated, four-wheel drive tractor with a 60-horsepower, turbo diesel engine, was manufactured by Versatile Farm Equipment Company of Winnipeg, Canada.
