The Link-Belt 3440B Processor, 4040B Timber Loader and 4640B Timber Loader are now available in the United States and Canada.

The new "40B Series" of forestry equipment features design improvements to increase cooling performance, debris management and serviceability.

The 4040B TL is gaining a substantial increase in engine HP, by 21 percent. Coupled with increased cooling and airflow management, the 4040B TL is sure to put in the work for the long haul, the manufacturer said. With serviceability and debris management, removal of the dust screen from the ground or catwalk is quick and effortless.

An all-new 3440B PH machine dedicated to forestry timber processing features a 177 horsepower Isuzu Tier IV final-compliant engine. Boasting an upsized cooling package compared to the previous generation l, the 3440B PH offers superior performance and productivity compared to its predecessor model.

"LBX is excited to introduce the all-new 40B Series forestry product line," said Adam Woods, general manager of Innovation and Product Portfolio Strategies at LBX.

"The partnership we have with our dealers has given us the opportunity to use the feedback directly from our customers as the basis of this new 40B series. From increases in productivity to the enhancements in the safety and service of the machine, we're very excited about what this means for the future of our forestry equipment."

40B Series machines were developed with site awareness in mind. A 270-degree birds-eye view with WAVES (Wide Angle Visual Enhancement System) is now standard.

In addition to these advancements, the spacious cab offers enhanced ergonomics and comfort. A high-back seat with air, tilt, and heat features is standard. Adjustable pivoting armrests, headrest, seat height, and lumbar support provide operators comfort on long workdays.
