Next level: the GMT TTC grapple saw. TTC stands for Total Tree Control. TTC combines the advantage of grasping the tree flexible with the ability to keep or hold tree sections in position when removing them. Not only is the tilt cylinder of the grapple blocked, but so is the movement in all directions in the cardanic suspension between rotator and crane. This ‘blocking’ method is unique and patent for the system is pending.
