Air Setworks Carriage - Model AS420


Product ImageThe AS420 is the original hybrid. Designed with your future in mind, this carriage is built as an economical air-set carriage, but with the ability to convert to hydraulic proportional or even linear positioning at a later date. Perfect for start up operations working within tight budgets, it also adds value if sold used, allowing potential buyers to easily get the exact style of carriage desired.

Several options are available to meet your requirements for layout, production, log and cant turning, and maintenance.
