Line maintenance: Featuring numerous enhancements from the original design, Barko’s B-Series harvesters and feller bunchers offer high productivity and efficiency. Purpose-built from the ground up, the machines incorporate extensive input from leading engineers, end users and other forestry professionals.

The machines are also equipped with an extreme cooling engine package and a 36-in. diameter Flexxaire auto reversing fan that includes automatic temperature control.

The D5 undercarriage on the 240B offers ground clearance of 26.2 in., compact track width of 9 ft., 4 in., and maximum travel speed of 2.47 mph. The 50,000-lb. class unit delivers maximum tractive effort of 65,833 ft-lb and drawbar pull of better than 1.3 to 1 ratio, to handle steep hills and rough terrain with ease.
