The PBS 3440 is stronger, safer, and more productive than competitive disk-style saws. Instead of cutting before grabbing the stem, the PBS 3440 grabs the tree first, then cuts–a significant safety advantage on steep slopes. And, ours is the only saw on the market capable of a 36” (single-pass) cutting capacity. This means no more wasted time double cutting. Also, cutting a straight, square butt eliminates extra steps with the processor, saving your operation valuable time while maximizing production. Reverse cutting and no recovery time, as well as minimal maintenance, less demand for handfallers, and less fuel consumption makes the PBS 3440 a cut above anything out there.
