With this unique head you cut small bushes, twigs and thinner trees with a snap and fell bigger trees using the saw. The head also works perfectly as a traditional loading grapple. The XG220 is a combination of two of the most successful and tried out Mecanil products; Mecanil EG250 energy wood felling head and SG220 grapple saw. The head is very easy to install because of no need for any additional hydraulics. Mecanil XG220 A RC is equipped with the patented self-powered wireless control. Does not require any change of battery. The battery is charged when the grapple is in use.
