Komatsu 855.1 & Turnable Clamping Stacks

A Komatsu 855.1 with turnable clamping stacks. This modification was made by Komatsu Forest GmbH Germany, so you can switch between shortwood and long wood in a few minutes. The productivity of an ordinary clambunk is higher, but if you have to switch between long and short wood very often, a turnable clamping stack is better. This is a very popular modification in Germany.
