  • Fits the most popular harvesting equipment.

SpeedMax™ XL Guide Bar

Strength is performance. The SpeedMax XL is a stronger, stiffer solid harvester guide bar. Get more uptime with more efficient cutting.

  • Wider: The SpeedMax XL wider design throws less chain and is built for high output.
  • Stronger: The SpeedMax XL flexes less because of its wider design and the chrome-moly steel it’s made from.
  • LubriTec™: Keeps your chain and guide bar oiled, for less friction and longer life.

Replaceable Sprocket Nose

A re-engineered nose provides exceptional durability and reliability on the job.

  • 14-tooth nose: The larger 14-tooth sprocket requires fewer rotations, which reduces heat build-up and extends the life of the nose.
  • Industrial strength bearings : Our industrial high-alloy bearings are 14% thicker than the competition.
  • Extended Length: With an extended nose-length - now 5.5”, previously 4” - the replaceable sprocket nose absorbs most rail wear and can be replaced several times. The guide bar bodies last longer as a result.
